As in 30th high school reunion. I'm excited to see people I haven't seen in - well, 30 years. But not before I get a haircut and shave. The 15 extra pounds its too late to do much about.

And sometimes we bake

Peach Blueberry rustic tart, recipe adapted from "Cooking with Julia Child and Jacques Pepin." The pastry is a standard pate brise, which means a suspension of butter in flour. The peaches and blueberries are coated in lemon zest, some sugar, and tapioca flour. There's a simple jam glaze.

Think of it as summer on a platter.
