A Royal Comestibles In Our Kitchen

090Nigel said that he had pondered a while as to what he should bring back from his little jaunt to Buckingham Palace, but really it had been a no brainer …..
Buffet….. and so hoping against hope that he would not have to surrender his hat for close inspection as he bid his fond farewells to the Palace,  Nigel had managed to secrete two royal comestibles within its confines for our delectation.....
arrive at buckingham palace…..  proceeding to guard his precious cargo with all due care and diligence back to his hotel and then the following day all the way home, on the train, back to Castle Greysquirrel.
Bringing cake back homeInevitably there was a little collateral damage, but that is only to be expected on such a journey,  over several days with such delicate delicacies!
comestibles….. And so we are sitting here today with somewhat squashed and in all honesty, barely recognisable Royal comestibles in our kitchen table ……
mango tartWe thought it best, considering their passage and not wishing to offend Nigel,  to take only very small nibbles …..saying that we thought that they would be best admired now and then as they were such treasures, preserved in the freezer, to be brought out fleetingly on “occasion” as conversation pieces, rather than consumed with ungracious great gusto.
truffle cake…… which Nigel seemed quite happy with!
nom nom nomWe are wondering however …… when/if …. he plans to change out of his bespoke suit ……we may need to persuade him that if he intends to wear it for Tom and The Lovely Laura’s impending nuptials it may have to go to the cleaners!

When/if could be shortened to whif - is that what you detect from Nigel's suit?

Understandable Nigel wants to hold onto any and all Garden Party moments.....perhaps he can be persuaded his beautiful outfit needs to be refreshed for the fantastic matrimonial day that will soon be here....the freezer is a brilliant solution for the delicacies.....bless his heart...Dianne
