Favourite Thing on a Friday

I'm joining in with Mimi and Tilly for

So what was my favourite thing today?

A simple (and quickly made) lunch with friends...

A double-ended tart (goats' cheese, thyme and tomato on the left, mozzarella, tomato and basil to the right because I didn't know if everyone liked goats' cheese) with potato salad and carrot salad...

Grated carrots, raisins and toasted sunflower seeds with a lemony dressing
Followed by a glazed apple cake...

Before baking

And after!

Actually, the company and the chat were the best bit, but they'd never have let me take photos to put on my blog (or tell you what we talked about...) so the food's all you get!

Hop over to Mimi and Tilly to see some other favourite things!
