Sunday, March 4
So! We finally did it. We finally bought all of the ingredients to have a feast just like the Redwallers! We have read the books for years and have always enjoyed the parts about eating, so we checked out the official Redwall Cookbook, made a menu, then a grocery list........then we fixed and baked all morning on Saturday. We ate promptly at two! This was our menu: Mushroom Pasties, Deeper-n-Ever Beetroot Pie, Dibbun's Delight, Shrimp Hot Root soup, Apple snow, hare's Paw Spring Vegetable Soup, Crispy Cheese and Onion Bread, October Ale, Loamhedge Legacy Nut Bread, Nunny Molers. I was Lavender the hare mom, James was Lord Winchester Fenwick, Olivia was Marrisa the mousemaid, Daniel was Tango the otter, Kim was Melody the mole and Lydia was Daffodil.......just a Dibbun! I made her a special dress. It had a secret pocket that was supposed to be for the candied nuts,,,,,,,,but as you see they turned out rather sticky and we didn't think it was a good thing to put in a pocket. It was a beautiful Saturday, the sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and nobody was sick for once! We had a very happy day together!
