Good Company

I really need to work on my portrait photography skills.

You see, as good as this apple galette was, the company I shared it with was ten times better.


I have to say, this batch of pâte brisée was my third attempt in the past four or so months, and it finally came together well enough to serve without apologies.

I may not be so confident in my painting skills right now, and the details of early 20th century architecture and furnishings may be alluding me, but at least I can make a mean
pâte brisée. So all is well with the world, right? Wrong, but let's just pretend for a moment.

This weekend I'm heading out of town, and I'm looking forward to the wonderful company I'll get to share, which I'm sure will be accompanied by wonderful food. But it's the people who will make each meal memorable.

I can't wait to see you, Lauren!

This is a delicious looking galette. I love the pic - it's a great close-up.

Hey there, thanks for stopping by my blog, and what a treat to discover your blog because I love your hole in the wall view of things in your photographs. I will be visiting again.

What a great looking galette! And yes, I agree, the people we share our food with are 10x better than the food (no matter how tasty).

Just as good company is sweet, blog comments are too. Thanks so much!

I have never made a galette - shame on me!
This is inspiring. Tks for stopping by my blog - I'm glad because now I found yours!
