Carrot Tart

I decided to go savory this year with an easy peasy and gorgeous carrot tart.  I had planned on serving this up as the first course to family dinner, however the Teen tested positive for COVID and we are now in quarantine. 

So we've been watching a lot of television and movies.  I made this Tart using some rainbow carrots that I had in my refrigerator and served it to my husband with a glass of wine while we watched a movie.  The Teen has lost all sense of smell and taste and has been staying mainly in her bedroom to quarantine from us.  She also had some of this tart but was unable to weigh in on how she liked it.  Poor kid......

Looking back over the years I find that I have only shared one sweet PI day post, the  rest have been savory.

Maybe next year I will go sweet again....but I do LOVE my savory pies.......
