Lunch with Old Friends

Had a long, lovely, talkative lunch with Mary and Judy who came from Philadelphia on the train and Barb who came from the West Side. They stopped at Tal Bagel and then came here with the goodies. Ate and talked and ate and laughed and had a great time talking about everything and anything. Really great conversation.

So here's Mary:

and Judy:

I didn't get a photo of Barb -- I think because she was sitting to my side, but that's her smartphone and coffee mug there on the right lower corner. You can see the garden door was open (and still is going on 10 pm) as it's very mild today.

And the treat at the end of lunch were the Linzer Torte... two shortbread like cookies with raspberry jam in the middle and powdered sugar on top from Tal. The other splotch on the paper, to the left, is the excess jam that stuck to the paper.

Dessert update: Barb just emailed and said for the next lunch we're having hammantaschen for dessert. If you want to know more about them, read here:

This is what they look like... the ones at Tal are all apricot preserves.
