Pears , roquefort and almond tart

Some days we are so tired that the only things that we want are, take a shower and sleep. Is exactly what I want. This last week was an exhaustive marathon for me. I took out all my kitchen stuffs, empty drawers and move furniture. My kitchen remolding begins tomorrow. Yes, my friends. I promise that I be patient. So, I start to cook simple and quick meals with ingredients that I have in my fridge like this tart.
