Galette with Brie, Caramelised Pineapple and Cranberries

I took a day off from work today. I do that occasionally, when there is a work pile up and things start stressing me out mentally. I find that staying away from work sometimes, from what I do everyday, from the people I see everyday – I feel better and think more clearly about new…
