We've been watching the Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo 2016 tonight, dedicated to Her Majesty's 90th. I remember being taken to the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo in London when I was in my late teens and thoroughly enjoying it. The Scotia one very much celebrates their roots in Scotland and Ireland. Couple of things brought tears to my eyes. A lot about the first world war too. What a waste of time war is. Especially that one. There was a letter from someone's grandfather describing how over 700 Nova Scotians went over the wall and in 30 minutes, only abut 100 staggered back. Why don't we learn?
birthday which actually occurs in April, 21st as I recall because my cousin's birthday is on the same date. I was staying with his family the first time the anthem was played for her that day and they were saying it was for them (he had a twin). I wasn't very old, but I wasn't that young!!
Nearly forgot, I bowled up a storm today, how very unusual for a league day. Only trouble was, the team we were playing against also bowled up a storm in the first game. They beat us by 4 points. Grrr.
We love stuffed Belgian Endive and here is a new, to me, recipe. Very easy to do.
Stuffed Belgian Endive
6 oz (150 g) goat cheese
3 Tbs (45 ml) milk
1 scallion (green and white part), finely chopped
2 Tbs (30 ml) finely chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1/4 cup (60 ml) chopped walnuts
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 large heads Belgian endive (French endive, witloof) leaves separated
1. Combine the goat cheese, milk, scallion, parsley, garlic, and walnuts in a bowl and beat with a spoon until smooth and creamy. Spoon or pipe the cheese mixture onto the individual endive leaves.
Author Notes Serves 4 to 6 as a first course, 8 to 12 as an hors d'oeuvre.
