Blueberry Tahini Ganache Tart

I was really impressed with my version of Lorraine’s tart. I made a blueberry tahini ganache tart and here I am putting the entire recipe together for you.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Blueberry Tahini Ganache Tart

Before we went into lockdown, the vacuum cleaner at work broke. It was old and tired, and eventually the motor packed in. At the same time, the O ring on the vacuum cleaner at home snapped. I made two snap decisions just before we closed. The one was to send the driver to collect an O ring for me and we would use the vacuum cleaner at work. It is bulky to move around. And has a bigger dirt cleaning receptacle. And knowing I would have to vacuum the house, I bought a lightweight, easy to use vacuum cleaner. I chose a two-in-one vacuum cleaner that could double as a dustbuster. Eventually I decided to take it out of the car and assemble it. It was easy to put together and after a few days, I set aside the morning to clean.

Vacuuming is not my favourite chore, but taking the longest extension lead we had, I set about doing this bit of housework. I started in the scullery and after a few minutes of use, the extension for the dustbuster broke. I was not impressed by this at all. Not only because it was brand new. But because it is so easy to use. I decided to finish off vacuuming the entire downstairs of the house. And then took the machine apart so I could clean the filter and the wheels. As soon as we are set free from lockdown, I shall return it. And look for a new one as I really like the stand upright version.
