Game of Thrones party

Hello internet.  It has been a while.  I thought I would show you what me and the Roomies got up to recently.  We had a Game of Thrones party to celebrate the finale… not that I wanted the show to be over or anything.

I had the day off and spent pretty much all of it stressing out about cooking turkey legs.

Also, apparently this is what you wear to a party you are hosting.  Pyjama bottoms.

I did mean to change but because they are so sneakily comfy, I forgot until about halfway through the night that I was wearing them.  Oops.  Oh well, my party- my rules.

Girl Roomie made crowns for everyone.  Everyone.

And yes, that is a mixture of fear and hatred in her eyes.  She really does love me, I promise. 

We ate in the dark, lit only by candles.  We drank cider.  We wore wigs.  Just because.

My friend Kristy is posing for the picture.  Boy Roomie is not.  He is tearing into those turkey legs.  I realise that my American friends are all familiar with turkeys but we really don’t eat it at all over here.  I could NOT believe how giant turkeys are.  Do y’all have giant ovens to cook those monstrous beasts come Thanksgiving?!?!

I baked a lemon poppyseed cake and the recipe can be found here. It came out amazingly! I don’t really trust my baking skills so I was very surprised that I made something so delicious by my own hand. The original recipe didn’t call for frosting, but in my mind it’s not a cake unless there’s frosting.

Hopefully I won’t leave it a week between posting stuff!  Missed you guys!!!

Sooo...your blog posts aren't showing up in my dashboard. That makes me angry...verging on volatile. I was just thinking I hadn't seen much from you so I stopped by and low and behold you HAVE been posting. *shakes angry fist at blogger*

PS - the lemon cake looks delicious and I want to eat it...but that would mean I would have to bake it...and I'm sure it wouldn't turn out like that.

You guys look like you had a blast!! PS - is Magic Mike coming out in theatres there???

Laura, your party looks Fantastic! I've always wanted to host a Game of Thrones themed dinner, and I'm honored you picked my lemon poppyseed cake to share. Is that lemon frosting? I'll have to give it a whirl!
