Yesterday's Theme Thursday made me think about food.
Most of my colleagues have embarked on their New Year Diets and that makes me think about food too!
Last autumn I had one of the most beautiful desserts I've ever ordered in a restaurant. And it was healthy food! (Well, apart from the butterscotch & chocolate sauces.)
I just had to take a picture.

Fruit Platter on a menu doesn't even begin to describe the sheer gorgeousness and lusciousness of what was served to me.
Slices of kiwi, banana, nectarine, orange & 2 types of melon fanned out on a piece of slate (no idea why it was slate, but the black background was a wonderful foil for the jewel-like fruits.)
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, a little scoop of muesli mixed with fresh blackberries & yoghurt and then pots of those aforementioned sauces together with one of Greek yoghurt, for dipping. Oh, there was a little homemade shortbread biscuit, too.

Gentle reader, you may think I near fainted at the sight - especially as I'd just tucked into a plate of venison and veggies.

I ate the lot.

I adore fruit. But the slate is icking me out! I expect it to have moss on the other side.

Lettuce - it was the Swan House in Beccles, Suffolk. Unfortunately too far for us to go for the day :(

Glory - I thought the slate a little odd, too - although it seemed very clean. A glass plate would have looked pretty.
