Ryan and Ying designed the invitation. (That’s not my address anymore, don’t worry). The invitation includes, among other grotesques, Ryan’s very own invention: baked beans with sausages and ice cream.
(it disappeared very quickly)
… this semolina and almond orange syrup cake (not very good)…
… and a lemon trifle, which launched a thousand Christmas lemon trifles (okay, three) and wasn’t much to photograph… you can sort of see the lemon curd in there, and that it also disappeared very quickly. It was so good it deserves its own post.
Louis made pizza. So much pizza.
And our guests made short work of the damsons from the damson gin (I did not like the damsons but I DO like the gin.) We also got through all my jars of “Moominpappa’s Summer Mead” aka Rhubarb Fizz. You can see it top right of this photo.
And then we packed everything we’d partied with into boxes and moved house three days later. You could say I am still recovering. Happy new!
