Inspired by @alpine_thistle I made Clementine Old Fashioneds last night. I use simple syrup rather than sugar cubes, because:
a) I don't have sugar cubes
b) I frankly can't be arsed
And quarantine, well, work from home, day one ...
I made tortillas. The first two had way too much oil in the iron skillet. The second two are better. More updates as the situation warrants.
Also, my wife passed her UK driving test! (After having had a US driving license for decades ...) I'm not saying there was a lovely sparkling shiraz and margaritas to celebrate, but I'm not saying there weren't.
The fire wiped out all the wood store, cloth store, leather store, and bins in other stores. I'm building walls and fire doors now.
Better late than never ...
In the medieval period, brawn referred to meat in general, often pork. Modern brawn is typically made by simmering a pig's head and trotters, and keeping it in the gelatin produced. It is called head cheese in North America. The hardest part of making it can be sourcing the head in the first place.
I am not well known as a baker, and as a cake decorator even less so. But I made this for my wife, because she asked me to, and I love her ..

Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
