Party 20Dec14 & Recipe For Creme De Nez

Yesterday afternoon, hot and sunny for December, was party time !

Einar (Papa Noel, Father Christmas, Santa Claus or the man who dresses up as an excuse for women to sit on his knee) and Jenny (the hostess with the mostest who laid on a fabulous feast) held a party at the Parra Bar in our local village.

Thank you so much dear friends !

Ralph’s Christmas Recipe For

Creme De Nez

Step One : Find a willing woman.

Step Two: Then find one who can conjure up a very thick “blancmange” chocolate concoction.

Step Three : Cover said woman chocolate with thick cream.

Step Four : Ask a sozzled friend to make a crater in the cream and fill with brandy.


Step Five : Ensure a friend (an Adrian preferably) thrusts said dessert up my nose.


Step Six : Laugh !


That is how to make Creme de Nez (Nose Cream dessert)

No Ralph was harmed in the making of this dessert !

  2. What a bunch of party animals!! It looked a touch cool, so many cardigans in evidence.

    Umm, you’ve got something growing on your nose.

    Merry Christmas, and a steady New Year, my distant friend. ❀ oxoxo ❀

    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€
      Party animals ? Okay. You caught us !
      Most of these photos were taken as the sun set and the temperature dropped really quickly.
      Ummm, so I have ! Got a tissue ?
      A Merry Christmas to you and all in Dismal Swamp.
      Love. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Lynne πŸ˜€ Thank you so much and may I reciprocate your kind words. Ralph xox ❀

  3. Great to see that you are surrounded by good friends at this, or any time of the year. Did you send that nurse you brought home with you back to the hospital yet?

    Greetings from grey damp England!

    • Hi Bill πŸ˜€
      Thanks my friend. They are good friends and well treasured πŸ˜€
      Now about the nurse. I have done a head count in my apartment and there is just me and the 2 cats. She is not in the broom cupboard ! I must have been imagining things or the tablets are wacky ones πŸ˜‰
      Merry Christmas Bill.
      Nice to know that there is no change in the UK weather then !
      Ralph πŸ˜€


    • Hi Amy πŸ˜€ T’was fun ! If I ever have another one I will take you up on that. I’ll have one for you !
      Merry Christmas my friend. Ralph xox ❀

  4. Judging by your smile, I dare say dessert is spiked? LOL

    … And, are you insinuating that Santa is really a dirty old man in disguise? I’d better warn Olivia. She might get excited. πŸ™‚ ❀ πŸ˜‰ LOL

    • Hello Marcy πŸ˜€ I think the whole afternoon was spiked !
      Just joking ! Not really. Santa Einar visits two or three mountain villages and the local train where he passes out presents to the children who don’t have a lot around these mountains.
      Oiivia seems to get excited whatever a man does πŸ˜‰
      Merry Christmas. Ralph xox ❀


    • Hello Christine πŸ˜€ Yes. It was a fun party ! A very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year to you too. Ralph xox ❀


  5. Ah, yes, the dessert!
    …and from the snow on your nose,
    And to my delight…
    …. I heard you exclaim, ere you drove out of sight,
    Love to you my dear Ralph!
    Peace on Earth, and all good wishes.
