Autumnal Equinox Bonfire Party

Post by Danae » Wed Sep 11, 2019 4:29 pm

Danieda had been in seclusion for the better part of the past year, but when enemies of the family took the Viceroyalty, she had left her seclusion to do what she could. That in turn put her back working at the Castle again. She had went about her duties and habitated a few different offices. The current office she held, was that of the "People's Representative". While she really had no idea what being the "People's Representative" entailed, it did give her a number of things she could do within her office.

So, the first thing she did was to "create" a holiday for the coming weeks, and while she was no longer in Avalon, the days here seemed to stretch forth the same. And since they were basically the same, the could figure out the Solstices and the Equinoxes accordingly.

Dani tacked up signs around both Widu and Cork so that the populace could attend and participate. She then put her former carpentry skills to work and proceeded to piece together long banquet tables and simple bench seating. A separate banquet table was made to hold all the food, which she sent about preparing next.

Her vardo wasn't all that big, but being able to have crates buried beneath it to keep a good portion of her food from spoiling, she would use that to help prevent spoilage. She hoped too that people who came would bring something special to share with the group (potluck!)

Dani worked over the next few days preparing numerous items, as well as cleaning out a bunch of the fruits and vegetables she had accumulated over her travels the previous year.

By the time she had finished, there was a glorious spread of food on the main banquet table. There was a platter of fruits and veggies (strawberries, acai, bananas, oranges, apples, cantaloupes, pears, Celery, artichokes, broccoli, and cauliflower) interspersed with various homemade cheeses. In the center of the table was room for the "hot" foods (mashed potatoes, egg drop soup, fried chicken pieces, steaks, pork bellies and bacon). And on the far end of the table housed all the desserts (Oatmeal cookies, citrus cheesecakes, pies {apple, iskir berry, pear}).

A smaller separate table had been made for drinks. Again, she had some of those stored away and brought what she had out to share. Large pitchers of milk sat at the ready, with mushed up strawberries beside them, so people could create their own *glasses of berry milk*, more pitchers held crisp cold water with slices of lemons or oranges. Beside the table sat casks of mint tea, iskir berry wine, fire whiskey, Klahua, and orange juice.

Danieda stood back to look down along the table to check things over once more. With more a nod to herself than anyone (cause no one else was there yet), she moved off to the side where she had moved her vardo and went to check on the stew that was cooking. It smelled delicious already but still had a little while longer to cook, it was at this point, that she added a touch of cream and flour mixed together to the stew to thicken it.

She had diced bacon, celery, carrots, onions, and garlic (using the last of the latter 3 for the stew), throwing them into the cauldron until they were decently cooked and smelling nummy. Next, she added in chunks of steak to brown up, and as it did so, she moved onto dicing the potatoes and turnips. They were added next along with beef stock she had cooked down the day before. Everything was stirred together. Dani took a spoonful of brother and scrunched her nose.. then added a generous amount of salt to the stew. Taking another spoonful, she smiled as it tasted much better.

Once more, she stood back and checked over all that was there, and finally she called out to her family that the feast was at last finished and ready for sharing.

I wonder who will arrive first?

While the actual "holiday" and games don't start yet, that doesn't mean that the RP can't!
The food listed is all the items Dani has stashed away in her home inventory - please bring some new things to share!

Madeliefie hesitated, glancing around the area before stepping towards the tables. There was no way she would turn down free food though habit made her cautious. She approached the tables and found what she was looking for. Fresh bread! And it was really free! She quickly loaded her plate before anyone could tell her otherwise and moved to the fire to enjoy it.
