So, my friend C and I have been having these monthly themed dinners and having a blast coming up with the food for them. This month we honored the food of Britain. C found an awesome cookbook with recipes dating all the way back to Shakespeare's day. Very cool. The whole spread could definitely be termed 'hearty' and was just perfect for the rather grim and drizzly day. I wish we had photos of everything! She included some lovely stuffed pears (which Offspring 2 unapologetically demanded from everyone else after finishing her own), a chicken with stewed fruits (I really need to get the actual names of the dishes) and these super tasty meatballs in a broth. All excellent. I threw in some lemon curd and ginger biscuits for starters (definitely need to try the curd again when the Meyers are in season), along with a Steak and Guinness Pie, a Bubble and Squeak (gotta love that name) and a Sticky Toffee Pudding Cake.
