A winning combination. A friend and neighbor asked me over tonight. We hadn’t seen each other in weeks. It was good to catch up. Hear about what we’ve been up to and the places we have gone. I read that article asking Do You Bore People? so I tried to not talk about the computer crash and the necessity of a new hard drive but it was difficult cause she missed my data loss experience. But enough on that already- AND look what her husband picked up on his way home! Lovely custard and fruit-topped tarts with a mug of hot tea to accompany the tart. It is good to have friends, especially in this beginning season of darkness and cold.
Ruthie you will always be surrounded by friends because you are such a good one
where is the article?
That is one beautiful tart.
How hilarious that YOU are reading an article: Do You Bore People? !!!! Not in this lifetime!!! That was written for me! Can I Google it? Beautiful photo and words to go with!
An evening that includes good friends and that lovely tart must have been a good one. Here’s wishing you many more such evenings — and far, far fewer PC crashes!
Just got the MacBook back tonight with a new hard drive. thanks for your good comments! Good friends and fruit tarts and tea.
I am a fortunate person.
The food looks inviting. The tiny roses on the plate – could that be my mother’s china pattern? It was purchased approximately 60 years ago?
Wondering where you can get one of those fabulous tarts? Yummy, reminds me of ones we’ve had on vacation.
Whole Foods ! I asked.
I’m sure we all bore people sometimes… we all do our best, eh?! Lol! This tart and your friendship are definitely not boring!
Aww thanks for your nice comment today!
I have had FOOD on my mind all day. This morning (with my multi-grain toast and jam and Chai tea) on NPR I heard Adam Gopnick discuss his new book which is about the basic human meanings of food, its procurement, preparation and consumption–eating, that is. The whole process is a fundamental social endeavor…we care so much about it because it is for and with each other. And now comes the nice husband with fruit tarts and the good neighbor drops in and you have quotidian conversation…the casual things that make the everyday so precious. And the tarts look glorious.
I am going to have to read that book! Thanks for looking and commenting today. Eat on.
Beautiful photo! A fruit tart – and a cup of tea! But most importantly a good friend! What joy!
Joy it is. Thanks for your comment today.
What a great looking dessert and the photo does them justice!
Thanks Greg. It was calorie worthy!

Yummy looking tarts captured perfectly! I hope that you didn’t lose any of your photos when your computer crashed. So glad that your MacBook was repairable and that you’re back in business!
I love the foreground/background composition of this shot. (And the tarts look amazing besides.) 🙂
I can’t imagine you boring anyone and the fruit tarts look so delicious – that’s one of my favorite desserts! 🙂
