Ria has an extensive post about the party here.
Here are some of the foods we had at the feast including links to recipes I was able to find (more coming).
- Grape Juice
- Cheese (I'm not sure what kind we had)
- Fava Beans
- Ham (one of my nephews carved the ham into the Boar's Head pictured above)
- Red Wine Sauce for the Ham (the alcohol, of course, is cooked off - I'm hoping that "coyote" will share the recipe with us - it was quite good!)
Of course we had to sing The Boar's Head Carol in honor of the centerpiece. There was a costume contest and a team skit contest based on portions of the Aeneid (this is a regular feature of their club meetings).
I thought it was particularly interesting to celebrate the party in presence of a relic of St. Matthew (which was given to us a few years ago). Rather appropriately, we also had a handful of ancient Roman coins (after all, Matthew was a tax collector).
