As if there hasn’t been enough munching around here, the human female is about to create yet more food, in order to take it to yet another holiday gathering.
By the ingredients, I surmise that she is making a batch of her rice pilaf, which I will admit is rather good, and which she doesn’t know how to make for less than an army.
Hmm. Looks like she has an unopened jar of the chicken bouillon.
Which is why it’s so funny I convinced her she didn’t. She had the human male pick up a jar. Now she has enough to make pilaf for TWO armies.
Here’s a sampling of the goodies at the Departmental holiday lunch.
The ubiquitous turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, and green beans. Macaroni and cheese. A pea salad (?!), some green salad, and some cranberry sauce. And do I recognize the pilaf there in the middle. Indeed I do.
And this is Sigyn’s favorite part of the meal. There were soooo many desserts to choose from! She does love her sugar.
A cinnamon cake with pecans, a teeeeeeny wedge of lemon tart, a wafer cookie with some sort of strawberry whippy stuff, one of Dr. W’s cutout Yule cookies (without which it isn’t Christmas), and a wrapped sweet which looks as if it might be marzipan, but which, upon inspection, is composed entirely of crushed peanuts and sugar. (Not that Sigyn is complaining!) I am going back to see if the brownies are still there.
Sigyn has an additional holiday Tradition of climbing the table decorations.
And, as we all know, Tradition must be obeyed.
