Thursday 19 November
We are preparing for Holt's birthday dinner party by cleaning out both the freezer and the refrigerator, to provide room for all the makings. From the refrigerator came some slices of roast pumpkin, from Halloween. From the freezer came a pillow-sized pound of shrimp.
As we got home late, all we had to do was defrost, deshell, and boil the shrimp, while the pumpkin re-toasted. One of the two got piled on a bed of arugula (for extra roughage) and then dipped into ketchup-and-horseradish sauce - you can guess which.
They were rather odd company for one another, but not bad at all.
