Rustic Strawberry Tart

I've had some puff pastry sitting in the freezer and no idea what to do with it. Strawberries have been on sale at the grocery store and I bought too much! Violett can't go through that many in a day so what to do? What to do? Hmmm, the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living as a Strawberry Galette which is basically a pie crust laid out flat on a baking sheet, lined with cut strawberries and the edges turned up. I used the puff pastry dough instead. It still worked out just fine, but I'll looks really crappy to me! Violett loved it and so did Scott. I loved it too, but next time i will use pie crust and make it myself. That way it will be big enough. Now, I know that it would have looked better if I had sliced the strawberries evenly and discarded the outside of the berry slices, but BLEH, who really cares? I'm not that picky. I had used the tray and parchment paper earlier that day to freeze grapes. I dried it off but when I had taken it out of the oven all the sugars left behind by the grapes carmelized on the sheet.
