Quoting starkers, reply 10Hey Leo, while you're at it, why don't you go the whole hog and have a banquet, instead???
No point in doing things by half measures, is there?
BTW, Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you and yours.
Thanks, bud. Xmas wishes to you and the family............By the way, it was a feast............and I made it all. Today.......Turkey left overs with fries and fried eggs..........yummy..........and someone bought some fresh english fruit scones yesterday and I've just been out and bought some fresh clotted cream.........So, 'high tea' today will be fresh cream Cornish scones with a little strawberry jam in between the layers..........Good job I don't have to worry about my waist line!!!
Thanks Leo... we had a very quiet one here... just the missus and I, but it was very enjoyable and the food excellent.
As for the clotted cream, well I hailed from Devon originally - the home of clotted cream and Devonshire teas - and to say that I'm somehat jealous is somewhat of an understatement. Genuine clotted cream in Oz is as rare as hens teeth or as expensive as hell, and the cafes/restaraunts here only serve Devonshire teas with ordinary whipped cream. It's just not the same.., and home-made clotted cream doesn't always turn out too well... geographical differences (of the cows) perhaps?
Oh well, I recently had some original recipe Cornish pasties and scones. After dad died mum eventually remarried to a Cornishman, and he made some up while they were visiting Oz earlier in the year... heavenly!
