Happy New Year

Handsome surpassed himself this year, cooking up a storm in the kitchen – eight courses for twenty-one guests (although that includes my ten-month-old nephew, who slept through most of it and didn't eat anything). His big brother, Cutesocks, spent the entire evening playing with Mouse's old Fisher Price castle,

and managed to stay awake (despite his parent's best efforts) until they went home at about half-past midnight.

The menu translates as

Tomato Tart
Haggis Tartlets with Onion Marmalade
Salmon Fishcakes
Cullen Skink
Venison Stew
Scottish Cheeses and Oatcakes (Handsome hates cheese)
Cranachan or Chocolate Tart or Gooseberry Tart (or all three)

and then after the bells,

Filet of Beef and Rocket Salad, traditional in our house!

It was a wonderful evening.
