Yummy food to fix the blues

Over the weekend the weather was cold, rainy and well it sucked to be out doors in general.
My wife got sick of me and vice versa throughout the 48hrs of indoors activities. We decided to start to cook and make some funny treats. We made Banana Bread and Blue Berry Muffins, but the real gold was our Sweet Potato & Caramelised Onion Quiche.
Bellow is the instructions on how to create your own when you feel the need.

Preparation Time : 30 mins

Cooking Time : 90 mins


  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • 1 large brown onion, halved, thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 2 tsp wholegrain mustard
  • 2 (about 600g) orange sweet potato (kumara), peeled, cut into 2cm pieces
  • 1 sheet (27 x 27cm) ready-rolled frozen quiche shortcrust pastry, just thawed
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) thickened cream
  • 200g danish fetta
  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 2 tbs finely shredded fresh basil


  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes or until soft and golden. Add the sugar and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until onion caramelises. Add the mustard and stir to combine. Remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the sweet potato in a medium saucepan of boiling water for 5 minutes or until tender. Drain well.
  3. Line a round 22cm (base measurement) fluted tart tin, with removable base, with pastry and trim any excess. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes to rest.
  4. Cover the pastry base with non-stick baking paper and fill with pastry weights, rice or dried beans. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes. Remove paper and weights, rice or beans. Bake for a further 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 180°C.
  5. Cover pastry base with caramelised onion and top with sweet potato and fetta. Whisk together the cream, egg, and basil in a jug. Pour into pastry base. Bake in oven for 40 minutes or until golden and set. Serve with, mixed green salad leaves or coleslaw.

Heat Wave

As today temps hit 40 around the country and the whole South East of Australia goes on high fire danger, I cant seem to cast my mind back a few weeks when it was so cold I thought I would freeze to death in a 5x4x3 steamer, hood, gloves and booties.

micro rant.

With the temp rising and the skin cells burning I would like to welcome summer and say good bye to any chance of quality waves on the east coast of Australia. I might also take this time to ask a few questions and officially turn on the comments section of the blog again as I now have finished my minimalist approach to the blog.
  1. At what age to farts stop being funny? (I just turned thirty and I still laugh everyday at them.)
  2. Why does my dog love pissing on the kitchen bin if he is alone for more than 5 hours?
  3. Has anyone notice that this wooden surfboard / bodyboard craze seems to be catching on to a mainstream crowd? How long till billabong starts to sell loin cloths made from hemp to get the total soul experience?
  4. Each morning I drag myself to the coffee machine pump out a strong short black, sip it at a slow steady pace, stare out the window until the lower regions start to wake then excrete the previous days waste. I am any different to a cow in a paddock?
  5. Will magazines that feature less adverts and more content and there for be sold in different ways (online and retail outlets) ever take off or will the newsagents always be there taking their cut?

I can't believe it's not Australia!

America can be seen as an evil super power by many if you believe the newspapers and TV stations worldwide. But if you look past the healthcare system and loose gun laws you find great people who love their country and are proud of all those stars and stripes each and every one of them.

I recently had a three week love affair with the United States of America and it will not be my last. The whole story will be a feature in le BOOGIE issue 3. Here are some images to wet the whistle, for more out takes of the salt we sampled visit the le BOOGIE site.
