cooking

So this is the ship they say is unsinkable.

It is April and that means everyone is blogging and thinking about the 100 year anniversary of the titanic (they are on my feed anyway).

I have much to post about at the costume blog and am hoping that I will get some time to do so over Easter, whilst also making lots of stuff and cleaning my house.

But in the meantime, I thought I would just pop this up here as a taster teaser of a future post.

I am having guest over for the weekend and am planning to do a weekend of food as eaten on board the doomed ship. There will be more but for now I shall leave you with the menu for Saturday nights grand dinner, which is the final meal eaten on 14 April 1912 by the First Class passengers:
