My literary group met yesterday. We are reading Yeats these days.
I made supper for 9.
Some images (sorry… no long explanations. Busy day).
The Christmas Pudding!
I begin the broth for Tortellini in Brodo. It isn’t quiet enough to open the can of broth, is it?
Macerating little tomatoes and strawberries and garlic for the salad.
Making Brandy Butter for the Pudding.
One of the many wines for the meal, thanks to a participant.
Dry, aged. This is nice to work with, because there is less moisture in the meat.
Red wine sauce. It was almost a disaster, as a matter of fact, but with mystical powers I saved it.
The Pudding. I caved out the top and pour in hot brandy and was therefore able to turn out the lights and present it aflame.
Those are strawberries.
