Frangipane for Friends
Yesterday I completed a good day's work - that is, a good day of happy puttering combined with a brainstorming session focused on collaborating with a favourite friend and colleague. To prepare myself for the session and to get myself in the 'moodle', I put together a beautiful Peach and Almond Cream Tart - Tarte aux peche frangipane. While my hands were busy with the intricacies of pastry, my mind and heart were flirting and skirting around the edges of possibilities for this new collaboration. Our session was very satisfying - exciting, new ideas for co-leadership and a deep recognition of our inner knowing about where the collaboration can take us. We celebrated our 'good day's work' with a simple dinner of beet & feta salad, cauliflower & potatoe soup (what is it about cauliflower? I simply love it) and olive & walnut breads. Too full for the tart, I sent pieces home for her - along with some fresh banana-rhubarb muffins. The first rhubarb from my funny garden this year.
