Nine of us sat down to the spam party lunch today at friend E's. I had to call on the way at the shop to buy some freezerbags as I have run out and there are raspberries galore to freeze. The 1940's weekend was still in full swing, although black clouds were gathering. A pipe band was playing in one square, our local band was playing in another square, there was bopping as yesterday and folk in uniforms were strolling around.
Then we arrived at E's to a drink and pre-lunch nibbles and chat. Once we were all assembled we went in to a beautifully set table with E's lovely collection of china and silver. We had fried spam with carrots, cabbage, mashed potato, apple sauce, fried onions, and liver and onions for anyone who didn't want spam. For puds there was summer pudding and/or gooseberry crumble with cream and custard. This was followed by cheese and biscuits and then mints and coffee. We sat for around three hours and a lovely time was had by all. By the time we left it was pouring with rain and the 1940's weekend had been washed away. It was so cold (12 degrees) that the central heating went on as soon as we arrived home.
Just a couple of photographs to give you a flavour of the event - plus one of the farmer in the rocking chair. Have a pleasant sunday evening.
