First off, my brain is mush and I have no memory for names,
so when I forget please understand that I mean no slight I am
just experiencing sometimers (sometimes I remember and somethings....
To start thank you all for letting do the feast, I
hope it was good and that everyone got enough to eat. I loved
Thank you to my sous chef Kirk who spent over
a week coming to my house to prep and cook with me. His excellent
pastry still made the castle towers happen and the pies. He
kept me sane. THANK YOU I could not have done this without you!
Eric and his lady and daughter, who came in
the kitchen and just remained doing everything so I could do
plating, you were great, they made the pasta and fruit balls
and so much more. they kept everything going.
Isabol, what can I say, you are a goddess,
doing dishes and helping cook, you kept things going so we could
get it all out. And did so with a smile the whole time. Thank
you so much.
Etine, Allie, Candy, The apprentice whose
name I can not remember and to every one else who wandered in
the kitchen with the words "how can I help" or "I
got a few minutes, what can I do?" Thank you so much.
To Jahanara who wrangled the servers and solved
problems when they came up with "I've got it, it will be
fine" To Jorun, Brion, James, (no I can not spell but I
do try) Nikki the younger, Elizabetta, Ashley, and all the servers
who not only served but often helped plate the food or grabbed
the dishes or whatever was needed. Thank you! To Maddie
and Zigmunt, who served head table and helped unflaggingly
with the cloches and schtick, You were awesome.
To Master Rocco and his wonderful Lady who
set up the feast hall and made it beautiful and who kept me
from making dumb errors like sending plastic to head table.
Michaela, who jumped in and organized the
clean up crew then kept working, scrubbing and leave the place
cleaner than we found it, You are the best!! thank you. Rannaulf,
Alfrec, Kes, and everyone. you have my thanks.
To the Beggars table and clean up crew, thank you so
much, without I shudder to think what would have happened
To my hall herald, I am so embarrassed, I can not think of
your name right now. Thank you so much for stepping in last
minute and doing a wonderful job of not only announcing everything
but buying me time when it was needed.
To Goodwife Lidia who made and shipped the
cheese we enjoyed Thank you so much.
To Anthoinette who came to my rescue with
patience and advice and a working printer when my ink ran out.
And who organized the 12 days, which sounded like it when over
well and looked amazing, To Sammy who came
to the rescue and leap to success, to Lucia who started
the Castle and to Rannulf and Alfrec who finished it.
To Lucien, Kata and the bronze rings who got
just a big laugh when my gold rings went out. Thank you
To Kata who came and sharpened knives when
mine wouldn't cut butter, it was so great, thank you, I love
having knives that cut everything now.
