Oh, Darlings, it’s just so sad not to be in the UK for their 4-day weekend in celebration of the THE wedding. Some former Brit friends have invited me over for a morning party. We’ll be coming from various drop-offs and meetings, so I’m thinking we’ll wear lycra AND hats. Perfect.
Tonight I rang up my friend, Liz (she’s actually one of my 3 friends named Liz. If you are a Liz or a Heather, I can’t be your new friend. Those slots are taken!). Liz is homesick for England (or maybe just the beer and the long weekend). So I had her come over for 6 seconds (she left her brood home down the street) and I handed her a parcel wrapped in newsprint, a bottle of dark beer, and homemade coleslaw.
She just rang me back. “Oh. My. God.”
Now Liz isn’t homesick anymore.
I doubt Kate Middleton’s eating this the night before her nuptials, but I imagine she’d be happy away from the fray around here.
Recipes tomorrow…I promise!
