Me and Snake arrived at The Twine greeted by this...
No seriously... who DOES need Kirsty Allsopp?
The house was decorated beyond belief, these tables would put Claridges to shame
We didn't do things by halves.. fox masks and Primark snowflake printed onesies were the only way to go. Lets just say the boy's could have done with theirs being slightly longer in the body....
Starter was down to me and Snake; Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs (runny), roasted tomatoes on the vine and parsley (purely for effect).
Oh and champagne. Whatevs...
Next up; the canapes, provided by Downie and The Turtle. A very lavish affair of pigs in blankets, scotch eggs, ham, tomato and mozzarella, crinkle cut crisps (apaz NOT McCoys... I asked) and er.... dim sum. It was nice (kind of).
Can I also add that these tomatoes were nicked from the breakfast course
After the canapes it was times for games. Mygdal fell off her chair (drunken mess as per..) and during one of us acting out Julius Ceasar in charades claimed "I've never heard of him" much to R.E. teacher Jones' disgust. She did however love the "mixed variety" of canapes.
Nellist and Lynnes main course was restaurant quality (even better than her ratatouille would you believe). She did a roast ham, winter coleslaw, creamed spinach, bubble and squeak cakes, blue cheese and walnut salad, and sundried tomatoes (see previous post) and rocket.
Nellist prepping ham
Things got quite drunken later but we we managed to be sober enough to try Jones' delicious choc clementine log. This gal taught Delia how to bake. And also Hendo it seems as he arrived later with a tin of homemade biscuits (made by his own fair hands) in shapes that confused him "what's this supposed to be Jonesy??" "A rabbit darling"
After this and waaay more cava/baileys (we'd ran out of champagne) was a cheese board. Which I actually never realised/remembered until now....
I'm sure it was delicious nontheless.
A brilliant, amazing, excellent day with special thanks to JODIE NELLIST!!
So we finish this post with a movie.
