Tomato And Aubergine Tart | Cheese Pastry

This recipe for tomato and aubergine tart comes from the collection of recipes we learnt to cook at Trinity Lodge.  My mom and I went to spend a weekend cooking in Darling and I have had the recipes stashed away to try soon. Thankfully my own challenges are forcing me to make these lovely recipes I have been saving. This tart is really tasty! I try and grow my own tomatoes as they are so easy to grow and even easier to harvest.

My mom flew down for a weekend and I collected her from the airport. We made our way to Darling for our time away. In Atlantis I was stopped in a roadblock. The traffic officer asked me for my drivers license and I went to the boot to get it for him. He told me that it had expired and I wondered if I had given him the old one in error. I kept two with me so that I could use one as a form of identification. When I could not find the second one I thought I had left it in the bank in error. Turns out that it actually had expired. Not the greatest start to a weekend away!
