Having a delightful lunch with my significant other, I wondered would a perfectly put together BLTs be the preferred lunch of Steampunk world?

This is apparently a working vacuum coffee brewer.  Just a little steamy.

I love to cook and eat! What an inspired idea for a group.

Though considered peasant fair, Welsh Rabbit is my favorite culinary delight from the British Isles. 

Welch Rabbit

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar

½ cup ale

2 tablespoons butter

½ teaspoons paprika

¼ teaspoon dry mustard

1 egg, beaten

6 slices of toast

Heat cheese, ale, butter, and seasonings in a double boiled boiler; stir until smooth.

Slowly add 2 tablespoon of hot cheese to the beaten egg to temper, then add back to melted cheese.

Stir until thickened.


Serve over toast.

I use extra sharp cheddar, dark ale, and sourdough bread.  Milder cheese, regular beer, and white bread can be used.

I have found a MOST useful site that directs you to tea rooms and tea suppliers in the USA:

We were directed to it by Sarah and Brad, the owners of FANCY THAT, a tea room in Brockton MA.  Lovely people, nice to chat with.

In case there are more cases of the flu or head colds, let's get a big pot of chicken soup bubbling!

That would have been a sight. I could just see kids running around thinking "our parents have lost their minds-they're setting the food on fire." Naturally, once they realized all is well, now its cool-so do it again. Kids-bless them, they make life interesting.
