Stuffed Pig.

Well, That’s What I Feel Like.

Another full day. Time in the shop this morning cutting down big sticks into small sticks, making a base for a wine rack and packing the car with tools to fix chairs at Swanda’s place.

Work in the afternoon and then off to prepare dinner with 20+ single straight people in the company of DancingBear. Tonight’s menu:

  • Pimm’s Cup Cocktail (photo below)
  • Pigs in a Blanket
  • Smoked Salmon with Dill Sauce
  • Beef Tenderloin with thyme and fennel crust
  • Brussell sprouts with chestnuts in a bacon cream sauce
  • Yorkshire puddings
  • Blue cheese mashed potatoes with caramelized onions and mushrooms
  • Mini Mince pies
  • Trifile

And I ate it all, diet be damned.

Amazing. We’ll see what tomorrow’s weight is!

    U Markie – did this remind you of the Brits? Yorks pud, beef n gravy with Pimms? Wishing you all the best for Christmas :))

    It reminded me that I’ve been neglecting my Brits. It’s been too long since my last visit. Best for Christmas, may your wishes come through not just for Christmas, but the coming year as well.
