The winner of yesterday’s signed paperback is: Marlena!
Today’s random question for a chance to win a $100 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble (and to get your name in the drawing for the Grand Prize) is:
What are you having for the big meal? Whether you do the big meal on the 24th or 25th, it doesn’t matter, just what are you making or being made to eat if you’re not the one cooking?
I have no idea what I’ll be eating on either of those days. We’re eating on Christmas Eve with my father-in-law and his wife’s family, then eating on Christmas day with his mother and her family. All I know is I’m supposed to bring a vegetarian loaf to each and that’s all I know.
So for as uninteresting as my menu is, I thought instead I’d post a Christmastime Regency recipe:
- The English Royal Family’s Christmas Pudding
- 1 ¼ ob. Suet 1 lb. Demerara (cane) sugar
- 1 lb. Raisins 1 lb. Sultanas
- 4 oz. Citron peel 4 oz. Candied peel
- 1 tsp. Mixed spice ½ tsp. Nutmeg
- 1 lb. Breadcrumbs ½ lb. Sifted flour
- 1 lb. Eggs (weighed in their shells)
- 1 wineglassful brandy
- ½ pint of milk
- Prepare all ingredients, well whip the eggs, add to milk, and thoroughly mix. Let stand for 12 hours in a cool place. Add brandy and put into well-greased basins, boil 8 hours or longer. Serves 20 – 28 people.
What’s on your menu?
