Edible Fruit

Take the Lingon Berry, or Lingonberry, partridgeberry, mountain cranberry or cowberry for that matter, its bright red color makes it look real yummy when it is still on the bushes, but it is not a good candidate for eating raw.  This bitter fruit needs sugar to be transformed into a jam or syrup that pairs well with wild game, red meat, fish, and several desserts.  The red berry is both smaller and juicier than its distant cousin, the cranberry, and closer in makeup to raspberries, yet with a tart and sour taste.  We should consider using some Lingonberry Sauce to serve with that herbed rack of lamb at your infare, as every newly married couple needs a great reception when the new bride enters her home for the first time.

The party will only be for close relatives and I will prepare a five course meal that includes a soup, an appetizer, a salad, a main course, and a dessert.  Life has this transitoriness quality about it, we are here for a short time and then we are gone, so we must celebrate all the special moments that life has in store for us and not get hung up on the fleeting caudacity of how brief life actually is.  We can start off with my creamy mushroom soup, as I usually get wonderful compliments on that.  For the appetizer we can have some fried chicken wings, stewed greens, black-eyed peas, candied yams and cornbread that should give it real soul food appeal.  Then I will serve my celery, apple, and almond salad.  Our main course will be the rack of lamb served with roasted potatoes, creamed spinach with a pinch of grated Parmesan cheese, asparagus and rolls.  In order to guard against everyone consuming too many calories, for dessert I will make my mascarpone Amaretti cups.

Every party needs some type of gimmick to be successful and I will provide a good light show, with lasers adjusted to music that everyone will enjoy.  I can get the lights to sputter, making a series of soft explosive sounds in cadence with the music. The lasers will come in different colors green, red, blue and yellow and by mixing them, I can get a nice looking purple, violet, lilac, or mauve color that should be fascinating to see.

  1. Wonderful use of the prompt words. Grand Rapids Public Museum’s planetarium does laser light shows set to music, including this one. Have been many times over the years. It’s very fun and relaxing.
