It all began yesterday with an innocent E-Mail question from my Mom to my sister and I...
"Soooo......let the games begin. What is on the menu for opening"
Then the response from my sister:
"Today's menu : bangers (chicken and apple sausages for R and me, garlic sausages for C and N), chips (oven baked potato wedges), and mushy peas. For dessert, Eton Mess, which means I need to make the meringue cookies since nobody in our county had any I could buy."
Hmmm...I love the Olympics and yet I had failed miserably in preparing for them!
First things first...Hubby and Shaggy had been helping with a Portuguese Fish Fry fundraiser so dinner was covered.
The Portuguese Fish Fry had a name change...English Fish and Mash...(would have been fish and chips but the taters were boiled red ones...I know I'm stretching here, but whatever)
Lollipop Pop and I had planned a day of school shopping in a larger city that has a Cost Plus World Market...I would stop on the way home and get some English stuff.
We found some little take out containers with British flags and the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. We found a package of English Biscuits with 6 flavors, which happens to be the exact number of boxes...must have been meant to be.
