The end of an era?
Anticipating a day of feast and fun, we decide to start with a healthy breakfast - A big heaping bowl of Bob's Red Mill Hi Fiber Oat Bran Cereal. We were feeling very good about ourselves. Very good indeed.
A few hours later, for second breakfast...
...we had a plate of bacon and a sandwich of liver sausage and onions fried in bacon grease. Oddly, we still felt very good about ourselves.
Soon the activity began.
Chirs and Mike, our guest gourmet chefs, arrived first and took control of the kitchen.
On the menu - Thai Dumplings, Pasta in Abalone, Herb and Wine Sauce and...
Key ingredients for the main course:
Chris works on the Thai Dumplings
Mike prepares the pasta sauce...
...while working under challenging conditions.
The herb wine sauce underway.
A fitting feast to crack the last* of the Big Shag Big Stout:
*Although no one at the time of this post claims to possess any bottles of Big Shag Big Stout, the consumption of only 11 of the 12 known bottles have been documented. The mystery of the 12th bottle remains unanswered.
**After a massive letter writing campaign by reader and commenter Robyn, this post was updated to correctly identify the edible flower in Emily's fruit salad.
