Back home after a wonderful party, a reasonable night's sleep, cooking breakfast (Northfield Farm collar bacon is the food of the gods but Art of Meat sausages aren't bad either) and chilling in front of LotR:FotR.

Thank you to everyone who turned up and last night, especially to [livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man and [livejournal.com profile] the_mendicant for helping out in the kitchen and supplying the gorgeous lamb.
Apologies if you were late and didn't get any of the lamb (of which [livejournal.com profile] the_mendicant said, "I wonder who is going to eat all that meat" but which was gone faster than we could carve it) *impressed*. Even the veg chilli was completely gone by the end of the night, just the pesto nobody touched and there was still half a tub of Dippadoom™ left *boggle* and there was much cheese left, too (grrrr at whoever didn't cover it after they had the last bite).
After much eating (I was really happy with the Mousse this time, leaving out two egg yolks seems to make the mix a lot fluffier and adding chopped choc add that little bit of extra yum) and general chatting, I introduced those who were left and hadn't seen it on Bravo/Adult Swim to Season 1 of the Venture Brothers and succeeded in my goal to both amusing and weirding out my guests. :o)

I was so busy either working in the kitchen, feeding people or chatting that I didn't take any photos at the party, just a few of the roasts which will be online at one point. Right now, I just want to relax in front of a DVD or two and rehydrate even more.

Again, thank you to everyone for a wonderful evening.

Thank you to everyone who came to the meal tonight and also those who later stayed for the Calling. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

[livejournal.com profile] the_mendicant and [livejournal.com profile] robinbloke picked me up and we were far too early so we had a browse around the Asian supermarket. I picked up some chili oil and will have to go back there at one point for other supplies.
At the Cafe Adriatic, [livejournal.com profile] raggedy_man was already waiting and the others arrived soon, too, except Ola, who had a big deadline and couldn't make it. :o(
Masses of delicious and reasonably priced food were ordered and enjoyed by everyone. I had the smoked tuna carpaccio with rocket salad as starter, roast pig belly with onion smashed potatoes as main and the dark chocolate coffee cup as dessert with a very nice Barbera. It was all wonderful.
I immediately made the resolution to go there once every month until I've tried everything on the menu. :o)

Got a text from Calling John asking when I would be there. Apparently, I didn't have the last set so we had to scramble a bit to get out of the restaurant but I made it in time.
Apologies for screwing up the first track but bloody Loki had switched off the cross fader again which I noticed too late. Sorry about that.
It was quite quiet so I had the occasional empty dancefloor but on the other hand I was surprised how well some of the other tracks were received (especially some of the medieval ones like Drachenschiff, or Samsas Traum and Lluther) so woo for a non standard set that not only made a difference but was actually liked.
After my set, I chatted to [livejournal.com profile] vyvyan and [livejournal.com profile] razornet for a while and then caught a taxi home at about 1:40.
All good.
