Bardic Dinner, 09-13-2003, Celtic Lands

This month has been our turn to host things, and we had the monthly Bardic Dinner at our place Saturday night. The food theme was Celtic Lands, and the reading from the Irish myths. A number of delicious dishes were presented: Shelia Haberland did savory Breton crepes as appetizer, Tim Kozinski provided Root Vegetable soup ala the County Clare restaurant, main dish was Beef in Guinness (by Chef Gregory) supported by baked potatoes and carrots. Bob Seidl brought an elegant syllabub for desert. Georgie was Skald for the evening, and read from the life of Cuchulain, the great Irish hero. She gave us portions from his early life, the incident that got him his name, Bricru's feast, critical parts of his defense of Ulster in the Cattle Raid of Cooley, with its beginnings and endings, and his eventual death by the treachery of his many enemies. Georgie read well (as always!) and a very good time was had.
