So after many years of wanting to throw a GoT theme party, we are finally going to have one – complete with costumes. The occasion is, of course, the premiere of Season 7 on the 16th of this month. I am going to be preparing a dinner of some sort based on A Feast of Ice and Fire and maybe a few other recipes from the Inn at the Crossroads site. Hopefully this will be the first of many.
So anyway… I have had Game of Thrones on the brain lately and have been thinking about what we might expect in Season 7 (and maybe Season 8).

I have been wanting to make a Dornish meal for some time, and now that I have had a long weekend home to help Kelly as she recovers from her surgery I have had some time to make it. So here is my traditional Dornish meal of dates, cheese, olives, chickpea paste, and flatbread. And wine, of course.

One of the things I have always enjoyed the most about our trips to Brimfield is the hunt for old books. In terms of what treasures we find, some years are better than others, and I would say that this year was pretty good in that regard. So Kelly took pictures and I will do my best to describe some of our finds.

Well, I did it. I made my own version of the famous (or possibly infamous) Manderly pie from A Dance With Dragons. The recipe from Inn at the Crossroads sounded absolutely delicious, and I couldn’t wait to try making it.
I succeeded, but at what a price.
