Bank Holiday Buffet

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star

A number of people have contacted me to say we have not had a virtual gathering for a while. So as tomorrow is a Bank Holiday, with socialising and shopping not an option, I am proposing a Bank Holiday Buffet tomorrow afternoon. All donations of sausage rolls, mince (and mice) pies gratefully received. Start time 2:00 pm.

P.S. All talk of CovID and Brexit banned!

Now I have some mice pies ready to go 😂 husband tells me they taste great I am not a fan! Can do some sausage rolls in the morning.

Lezzers in reply to 080311

Never had a mice pie, does it taste a bit like chicken? 🤔

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to Lezzers

Romans used to have mice in honey! Mice preferred gin! 🤣🤣🤣

080311
080311 in reply to Lezzers

Don’t know will ask husband he eats them I don’t like minced meat 😂 too sweet. Maybe mice would taste like chicken most things we don’t normally eat people say it tastes just like chicken!

Lezzers
Lezzers in reply to 080311

That's very true about everything tastings like chicken, though I have eaten some strange things in my time that definitely didn't taste like chicken! 😱

Fluffybee
Fluffybee in reply to Magicfairy

😂😂wonderful 😁

I’ve got a Sherry Trifle ready (with lots of whipped cream) ...it wouldn’t be Christmas without a Trifle🥳🎄

Nice to hear from you MichaelJH, thought we hadn’t heard from you lately and I was wondering how you were.I’ll bring a chocolate and raspberry torte, we need a good party to see out 2020.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to VelvetSky

I like raspberry. Trust it is not too sweet with 70%+ chocolate!

I'm a busy girl today but if I get some time (and Internet!) I'll try and pop in, I'll bring turkey sandwiches & gin!!

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star

I will leave an empty carton of milk in the fridge in case anyone wants a black coffee! 🤣🤣🤣

I would love to join and contribute poached salmon and a big fresh salad. And a yes please to home made piccalilli. I love anything pickled. I also love mustard sandwiches - but I won’t inflict them on anyone else unless you fancy one! Oh, and as this is my first one where are we meeting?

Lezzers
Lezzers in reply to IrisCarter

I'm assuming you managed to find Michaels mansion by now? And I'd like try the home made piccalilli please. We had some beetroot pickling but not sure it's edible!!

I’ll bring Baileys-flavoured whipped cream in brandy snaps.

Fluffybee
Fluffybee in reply to MichaelJH

Oh my goodness!!!! A sack of walnut whips 😂😂😂

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to Fluffybee

What deep fried Walnut Whips in batter! 😲 Next Lezzers will want deep fried sprouts on gin batter! 😱

Magicfairy
Magicfairy in reply to MichaelJH

Nooooo! 😄

Fluffybee
Fluffybee in reply to MichaelJH

Oh I do love a good sprout, not sure fried, just walnut whips not cold just room temperature so it melts easily, maybe some Kraken rum punch to wash it down nicely !!!

Lezzers
Lezzers in reply to MichaelJH

Definitely nooooo. Though I am partial to cold Brussel sprouts 😋 oh wait let me think about that gin baytrr 🤔

Magicfairy
Magicfairy in reply to Fluffybee

🤣

My long suffering wife will knock up a Yule log made with eggs, Cocoa powder, and sugar (nigella,s recipe no butter or flour), along with arla lactose free cream. You will have to be quick - , it vanishes very fast.

Hello

I may be a little late as I take next doors dog out for an Hours exercise every day and if I don't go he barks the place down !!!I have a bottle of M&S Clementine Gin Liqueur along with a bottle of Prosecco as a mixer so feel free to help yourselves until I arrive. I also have some Warm Towels to dry off Lezzers and Kevin that's if Lesley lets Kevin out lol.

Hands Face Space and 2m distancing so no Mistletoe this year but we will make up for that in 2012

Lezzers
Lezzers in reply to Prada47

Yes, please to all thank especially the towels!!

I'm here (Internet whilst travelling!!) would it be naughty to ask for a double gin and any pork pies? I'd sell Kevin for a pork pie at this moment!! 😂

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to Lezzers

Will a pork and turkey pie do? Here's the double gin...

Milkfairy
MilkfairyHeart Star in reply to Lezzers

Lesley would you like some of my hot water crust pastry ham and turkey pie I made yesterday?

Also I've got some gin infused with orange and chocolate made by my youngest.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to Milkfairy

I am not a gin fan but will try some as love the flavours as long as not white chocolate!

Lezzers
Lezzers in reply to Milkfairy

Yes please, sounds gorgeous 😋

Fluffybee

Lezzers

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star

Help yourself to a glass of Gluhwein!

Fluffybee
Fluffybee in reply to MichaelJH

Ooooh can I have some of that as well, I know I’m a Norfolk piggy 🐷😂😂

Michael is this your house or have you hired a country mansion, it’s a bit posh 🤔

MichaelJH

Brilliant! , So glad I got dolled up in my best Jim jams 🙂

Afternoon everyone, sorry I’m a few minutes late, sorting out Christmas present for husband that he opened Christmas morning and wrong item inside 😩 my fault didn’t open the box from Amazon just wrapped it up 😂 bought mini exercise bike received metal detector 😂 so after all that can I have a large anything and I would love a piece of Milkfairys ham and turkey pie.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to 080311

Gluhwein to wash it down? The cinnamon, cloves, star aniseed, orange and Bavarian honey would compliment it well.

080311
080311 in reply to MichaelJH

That would be lovely, can really use a nice drink, the metal detector had him in hysterics, since his stroke doesn’t walk very well needs a delta to aid him, so the idea he could go out with a metal detector really set us both off😂.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to 080311

Probably go off continuously with my prothesis! 🤣🤣🤣

080311
080311 in reply to MichaelJH

Now there’s that wicked since of humour! John had a an accident on board ship and he now as loads of screws and a metal bar in his leg, we hadn’t thought of that setting it off, now he is laughing his head off😂 might have been the wrong present but it’s given us a good few laughs.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to 080311

I have metal plates and screws in the upper part of my leg. Definitely not for me that detector!

Magicfairy
Magicfairy in reply to 080311

Oh no, I was worried Christmas morning as I did the same, hoping it was what I ordered, luckily it was his mataxa 7 star brandy, would offer you a glass, but the tight so and so is not willing to share it even virtually 😂x

MichaelJH

Note mini exercise bikes don't work with one leg. Will be selling mine...

I feel really guilty when I bring Harley next doors dog back covered in mud and they have to wash him off !! But they don't need to take him out again today

I feel a bit mean now just looked in the fridge and we have 2 bottles of Lanson so lets pop the corks

I will indeed tell fluff, many times you've plied me with drink and not once have you tried to take advantage!😂

IT was good even though I could only have half a dumpling; I prefer them baked though. Made enough for another meal. At Uni I used to make a lovely rabbit stew and keep on adding to it for days. NO room now for the cake.

I found a tin of spam. Spam fritter and duck egg on rye bread anyone. Goes well with a Guinness. Can I get you one HectorsDad

HectorsDad
HectorsDad in reply to MichaelJH

Got any GF fritters?😁 Guinness would go down a treat. We’ve got some salmon canapés, a rather nice Merlot and a bottle of Christmas Spiced Mead if anyone fancies anything.

MichaelJH
MichaelJHHeart Star in reply to HectorsDad

Sorry to be pedantic but unfortunately, like most beers and ales – Guinness is not gluten free. It is brewed from barley, which is also roasted to give it its famous dark colour. Barley contains 'gliadin', a component found in gluten, which triggers inflammation in the small intestines. However, as this is a virtual gathering any food can be whatever we want! 😁

HectorsDad
HectorsDad in reply to MichaelJH

As a general rule, I understand that the brewing process transforms the gluten so it is not an issue in most ales. Wheat beers (some of the nicest German and Belgian beers I seem to remember) are a problem since the wheat is added late in the process. Not sure about Guinness.
