Eat, Drink and be Merry (whoever she is)

Burnfield SCA held a twilight feast last night for the new members. The event started with a bit of biffo, some ladies brought their embroidery and Josiah shared his poi skills. The food theme was Mediaeval German and a surprising success. We took most of our recipes from a 400 year old cook book and it seems people appreciated the subtle taste differences. The little fruit breads were popular. They are simply a teaspoon of finely chopped nuts and dried fruit wrapped in a light bread dough. When made with a higher portion of walnuts and prunes (dried plums) they go well with beer...another good German staple.

Upcoming SCA events: The new Hervey Bay household is planning a seafood dinner in the next couple of months and the members in Gladstone are throwing a pirate party. Garb is mandatory; anyone turning up as Capt. Jack Sparrow will be shot on sight.
 
Article of note: Education Qld has directed its teachers not to communicate with students online outside of the EQ email server. Mmm...we shall see how that one pans out...it's a big ask of country teachers.
