What My Sweetheart Fed to Me


HWEM (He Who Encourages Me) also feeds me. He makes a scrumptious Lemon Tart. We won't mention the six whole eggs and nine egg yolks! For more lemon tarts and other amazing watercolour treats I love Paris Breakfasts.


These are crying out to be painted but since they are crying out even louder to be planted, I had better attend to it. I guess I can't expect HWEM to do that as well!

We have so much in common! I have a HWEM too! Che buona fortuna! The tart is darling and my mouth...watering. I had a productive painting day, how was your's? marta

Katherine - Thanks. You'd also be surprised to know how many pots HWEM can use in one seating as well!

Yes Marta, we are lucky! Glad you had a good day. I love your portrait of the little boy. My new passion is Hiroshi Yoshida. I 'musing one of his wonderful prints as a reference for a watercolour. It will be my first half sheet of WC paper! I think I need to go and weed the garden to calm myself down!

HWEM here. You forgot to mention the 350g of butter in the filling and the 3 egg yolks and 175g of butter in the pastry case. Not to mention the 350g of sugar divided between the filling and the case.

I wish I was like Mr Spock in Startrek and could just beam myself to Italia and try some of that tart! Mile grazie per il cumplemento on my painting. And remember Robyn (about the 1/2 sheet) "It's ONLY paper!"

Robyn, is there any lemon at all in that tart? Hehehe.

I have been looking at your work of art. You are a wonderful artist. You capture your subject with a refreshing brilliance.

All lemon tarts are delicious, despite the many eggs and calories!!
