678. Breakfast Tarts
An Arty City – Montreal
Street Art or Graffiti though mostly not legal in many countries, is art that is much appreciated by all. Its visual art created in public locations or places. Usually found on walls of buildings, sides of the highways, streets etc, usually in places where passers by can see it. It started as a form or way of expressing views on different matters to the public in general. Initially most artists used spray cans but today other medias are used like mosaic, stencil art, LED art, stickers, Lock ons (sculptures are attached to public furniture), wheat pasting used to make collages and papier mache.
When you walk around Montreal City you will notice some sort of creativity be it paintings on building walls, meaningful graffiti, different shaped benches, small gardens with blooming flowers, shop windows dressed to attract anyone, or even small balconies of apartments. People in Montreal are not afraid to express their artistic talents. I would have loved to share some of the photos I had taken but unfortunately my iPad stopped working and the only way to revive it was to lose some of my photos. I can kick myself for not storing them on iCloud or a pen drive. However, as they say we learn lessons the hard way.

|Street Art-Mont Royal – I was wearing a black and white top and hubby wanted me to blend in!Coming to today’s post for the #FoodieMonday #Bloghop group, the 105th theme SavouryBaked Dish was chosen by a new member of our group Sasmita who blogs at First Timer Cook. A young housewife, who had no idea about cooking before marriage,
dishes out some lip sacking recipes.
It would have been easy for me to bake a bread which I had in mind initially. However, I have only 2 weeks here in Montreal 🙁 🙁 🙁 and I have to start clearing the pantry and fridge. Some of the spices, lentils, rice etc my son will use but certainly not a frozen puff pastry. So shelved the bread idea and used up the ready made frozen pastry to make a delicious, filling breakfast. The idea was stuck in my head since I saw an advertisement for Jus Rolls (puff pastry). The pastry squares had an egg on it, all baked, but I added my own filling to make it more wholesome.
So here’s the recipe. Whereas ready made puff pastry is available in most countries including Kenya, I have find it difficult to source it in India. Anyone knows where I can buy it in Mumbai or Bangalore?
200g ready rolled puff pastry
8-10 mushrooms, sliced
1 cup roughly chopped spinach
8-10 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato
¼ cup chopped spring onion
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to season
