Supper for Today, 1876, in a London Townhouse

  • Flounders – fish cooked in brine served with parsley and butter sauce
  • Green Goose – stuffed with sage, onion, bread-crumbs, pepper, and salt served with a gravy, apple sauce, and mustard (green means young)
  • Arrowroot Pudding – (actually a custard) made with bitter almond, lemon-peel

Your Writerly Tinctures:
Recently uncovered evidence of Khwarismian (Turkish) vampires from AD 1244 (post 4th Crusade): “Thirsting for and drinking blood, they butchered the bodies of dogs and humans, and eat them. The wear bulls’ horns, that are armed with iron; they are short and squat, with compact bodies; they are invincible in war, and blood to them is a delicious drink.” From templar records. Curiously indicative, no?
