I fix Sunday Dinner one time each month for my daughter, son-in-law and Miss Phoebe! I started this tradition a couple years ago, but Covid slowed us down. I'm not slowing down this year! I've now had both doses of the vaccine and my family will have it as soon as they are allowed.
Our January Sunday Dinner was fun! I set the table in a Black Bear theme and used a very special black bear as the centerpiece! I carried this heavy wooden bear back from Portland, Oregon. He sat on my lap on the airplane! I had watched a guy carving the bears with a little chain saw. My husband loved black bears, so I bought one for him! Yes, I could have shipped him ... but it just seemed more appropriate to carry him home!
The menu is has a unique theme. Phoebe bought me a Downton Abbey cookbook for Christmas, so I wanted to use a couple recipes from it. I'm posting weekly columns about foods named after important people, so I included Lady Curzon's soup. There is a relationship between the real Lady Curzon and the fictional Lady Grantham. Read about it RIGHT HERE!
The only turtle in the soup was the puff pastry turtle floating on the top!
