So what a treat when a friend phoned up today saying she'd be in town and hoped she could drop by.
Oh yes indeedy!
I didn't have much time before she arrived, but managed to put together something hot and attractive for lunch: split pea & ham soup, chicken salad/sprout sandwiches and fresh fruit salad.

The lunch was much appreciated, but it was the visit itself that was the highlight. It was nice to share a meal and chat and catch up from the holidays.
It's always nice when I get a surprise visit like this. I do get kinda tired of making myself a meal tray just to eat in front of the TV. Sometimes it's hard to be creative with food when it's just myself - but as you can see on the Chef's Table page, I do my best. *heh* Still, when you get to share a meal, the food is better, the candle's brighter and the day, no matter the weather, is always fine.
How about you? Do you eat better when you're with others?
