An inspired feast of epic proportions last night: the most sumptuous of Nibbles, followed by a Raclette that even the Alpine French would have looked upon in awe and, an enormous and eloquent strudel in finale, obliged that photos be taken, that the feast and the artistry might be feted here. I received the pics punctually today at dawn. I haven't the recipe for the Strudel, perhaps I shall persuade mein host to share... and the carving of the Pumpkins followed such a rigid, near' cultish etiquette that I fear the sharing online be inappropriate.
I have quite a pile of timely Pumpkin recipes, indeed, even now a Pumpkin and Apple soup a-bubbles on the stove... I shall note these sometime. For now, simply in admiration of Strudel and Pumpkins....
"the apple strudel artistically and somewhat seasonally positioned amongst pumpkins"
"the end results of our bitterly fought pumpkin carving competition ..."
