Lately, I've been feeling like I'm running in mud- I don't seem to get very far and it's very exhausting. Next week I'm going to be making and putting up the sauces in bulk, chopping and bagging all of the dried fruits that will go into the Ambrosino and starting the candied orange peels. I'm going to see if I can get in touch with someone who does amazing homemade bread and talk them into doing the Pane de noxe for me in bulk. I'm also going to see if someone wants to take on the fresh noodles for the sweet lasagne dish, and specifically ask people in the DL culinary guild who I know are awesome at specific things if they would be willing to take lead on specific dishes. I know they are awesome in general, but often people seem to respond better to a more specific request- like "you there, you make a rockin' armored turnip- want to throw down for candlemas"?
I'm still trying to figure out how to best make the sergentry meeting work at Ursulmas- it looks like to get meeting space we may wind up getting bumped to Sunday, but enough people day trip I'm concerned that we may loose people we really could use input from - but we will have to make due with what's available. There is a small chance that If the coronets sharing the baronial pavilion wouldn't mind we could maybe, possibly have it there- whenever there is a break in the schedule. I was brainstorming and suggested maybe we could have a dinner meeting just off site, but that didn't seem to be any interest in that either.
