Sunday Scribblings "Fantasy Dinner Party"

Back again to partake in this writing fun with Sunday Scribblings this morning.
The prompt this week is who would you like to have at a dinner party, living or dead, why, and what would you serve them.
I had to do a bit of thinking on this one. I am a bit of a social flop at times because I worry about doing or saying the wrong thing or that people don't like me or I won't be good enough. Social things like dinner parties are hard for me, so I wimp out and don't do them. I would have to know someone very very well to be confident to have them at my dinner table without worrying and be comfortable with it.
But since this is a fantasy dinner party, maybe I could get the world's leaders together and wave my magic wand and make them best friends and peace makers.
Nah! that's never gonna happen, I am a dreamer.
Maybe I could get someone like Jamie Oliver to come along and he would do the cooking for my party, then I would be confident that the cooking was good enough. Nah I will do it myself anyway. I am not that bad a cook. I tend to be one of those cooks that doesn't follow recipes, I just get an idea in my head and play with it, it usually works out o.k. Though I reckon if it was for an occasion I would stuff something up by trying too hard.
Since it is a fantasy dinner, there has to be eight people I reckon I would love to get to know.
I love Peter Cundall. He is a gorgeous old character. He is from the Gardening Australia show on the ABC. (Have a squizz on my side bar, there is a link to the show on there) He retired last year at the age of 80 and still has his hands in the soil no doubt in a zillion different ways teaching and influencing gardeners in this country, just like he always has.
I would love to meet and get to know my grandparents. I Missed having them. Only my maternal grandparents were alive after I was born and I do not remember them well but I cling to the few memories I have of them. Joe Trenerry died when I was 9 and Esther died when I was 5.
My paternal grand parents were both gone before I was born. Arthur and Pearl Palmer. My mother told lots of stories about them, not all of them were positive, and I would like to see for myself.
I reckon kids miss out on not knowing where they come from. I would like to have known them all better.
To make me laugh, Billy Crystal, his facial expressions and his movie characters always get me laughing.
Um one more, well I could think of lots more people I would have liked to get to know as well as lots of friends I would like to see again and I have moved away from, now that I have started my numb head writing here at the keyboard.
I would love to meet a blogging friend and be her friend face to face, she is on my side bar here also. I would like to invite Merle, she is a real sweet heart.
What would I serve them?
I reckon a nice Barbecue out in my back yard then have them all sit in the sunshine outside around the back table would be nice. So it will be a midday meal.
For starters I could serve a nice pate' with water crackers and a dip with crudites.
Then I would cook on the barbie, some nice rump steaks. Some chicken thigh cutlets that I coat in rogan josh curry paste mixed with a bit of olive oil and cornflour to seal it all in. That works well. Then some big mushrooms cooked whole (I love those on the barbie) and potatoes part cooked beforehand, sliced into rounds, and some tomatoes cut in halves and zucchini sliced length ways, all on the hotplate too. With a nice crunchy green salad with herbs out of my garden in it and Italian dressing. Or maybe that dressing I like to make with chopped garlic, olive oil, sugar, cracked pepper and balsamic vinegar put it all together in a jar and shake the shit out of it. Some crusty Italian bread too.
For sweets I would make a pavlova and top it with kiwi fruit, fresh cream, shaved chocolate and strawberries and put a big bowl of fresh fruit salad with it. To make it all Aussie I would finish it off by going out to the shed and getting my billy from the picnic gear and making billy tea. Maybe my grandfathers would enjoy getting together doing that job. Oh I didn't say wine. How about some nice reisling or a fresh light moscato, that is what I like to drink anyway. Beer for the boys.
How does that sound, Do I pass?
Love Linda.

Indeed you do pass, at least in my estimation! The guest list sounds charming and the menu delicious! Like you, I'm not a social person or a party planner, but yes, if we can fantasize our guests, then we can also fantasize ourselves handling everything beautifully and enjoying it! :-)

Old Grizz said...

you pass except for 1 didn't invite Old Grizz. That's OK, I forgive you. You had a better guest list. Read your grump blog. moving can be a bitch. Hope you find something you are happy with.

The pavlova sounds wonderful, as does your guest list. I also thought of my grandmother, but then left her out!

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good manufacturer of e-smokes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers supreme Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a collection of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

Всем привет!

Недавно перед мной встала задача, куда деть накопишиеся [b]европоддоны[/b], или еще их называют [b]Паллеты[/b],
[b]Поддоны[/b], [b]Европаллет[/b]ы Размеры 800*1200, 1000*1200- Это [u]Тара Пром назначения[/u].
Немного предистории.
Сам я работаю кладовщиком на складе. Нам приходит много продукции на [b]Европоддонах[/b],
товар продаем а поддоны остаются, у нас встал вопрос куда их девать.
Раньше мы их выкидывали.
Потом мне подсказали, что за поддоны можно получить деньги.
Начал звонить по фирмам везде были цены низкие,
потом приятели мне подсказали, что в Челябинске есть такая Компания "[b]Уралсклад[/b]",
около 10 лет на Рынке Промышленной Тары с хорошей репутацией.
Я нашел их сайт в интернет - [url=][/url] и позвонил по тел. +7(351) 233-07-14.
Буквально через час подъехал их представитель, Авто с Логотипом "[url=]Поддоны Челябинск[/url]".
Цены закупочные оказались самые высокие в г. Челябинске.
Все цивилизовано грузчики загрузили [b]Паллеты[/b] ешё и лом поддонов купили, расчитались на месте наличными.
Про другие фирмы я узнавал либо Цены низкие, либо Бракуют много, да и денег от них не дождешься.

Так что если у вас завалялись [b]европоддоны[/b], не торопитесь их выбрасывать, лучше обменяйте их на деньги.

To sum details up, never be shy or embarrassed or afraid to like dolls or bears. ugg slippers It actually still smells a bit of horse. buy ghd It makes putting the outfit on and fastening it very simple (put the skirt on, then the bodice, no tricky reaching around behind under the robe to do the skirt), and it means there is a possibility that I could make an evening bodice to go with the skirt later, thus getting the maximum use from my sewing time and the fabric.. this adds pressure to girls to become part of a group that more often will lead to low self esteem and even depression.. This satisfies the hoping for putting on trendy as well as stylish things edging after dark conventional design..
