Bearnaise Sauce

Peter, dear, this is for you. This is second time of posting - my first seems to have got lost. The recipes for the sauce are a bit too long for my poor arthritic fingers to type, so why not google it? The first one on the list also has a demonstration video so you should have no problem.
Hubby is having a respite stay in a home for the confused but cantankerous. He has been like that since the illicit still in his new shed was raided in April. So I am having a Yogurt Knitting and Knees Up party on Saturday night. All welcome. Bring wine and pork scratchings.

Wow - first Peter reappears and now you Mrs Twine. It's lovely to have your quirky self back. Now we just need Madame Bovary.

Thank you for your message, BB. However, so far as Madame Bovary is concerned, I am a little shocked. I understand she is staying in a hotel in New York and spending wildly on Woody Allen's credit card. I am surprised at both of them.
Now that the still has been removed from hubby's new shed (no wonder he wouldn't let me look inside), I have cleared it out and given it a good scrub down, and the ladies quilting group are meeting there once a month. Why not join us?

My darling Brixtie, how are you? Despite my absence from here (internet issues) I think of you BB and often hope your intelligence is putting to right the fools that abound! Now Brixtie, have you seen any good films of recent? I have been living in Tenterdon with an old Aunt who was on her way out, sadly she passed 4 weeks ago, having said that at 94yrs young one should be delighted to be going on a new journey I say. Have had a few Chablis so excuse all spelling errors. So pleased you are still on Lewes Forum, they need a good girl like you. Peter

Mrs Twine, as you may recall my Internet skills are rather limited but have just read your comment regarding PORK SCRATCHINGS, well, in Mount Street, Mayfair, is a fab chef at Scotts, he is Irish, whose Pork Scratchings are superb! Suspect yours are rather yummy too. Peter.

Mrs T, I am off to NYC next month, and shall try and See Woody perform on a Monday evening (Carlysle Hotel misspelt, am slightly p.....) we shall see. I should be there for business reasons but life is way too short to miss a fun eve, thank you for the reminder. PB

@ Peter Byron - I think you would be wise to get someone in to do the cooking - it will give you time to keep your guests glasses filled. Glad to see on another thread that you had a good day at the races, which may help to make up for the bankers. I am pleased to hear that the chef at Scott's pork scratchings are still up to expectations; he is an old pupil of mine, but his crochet and hummous doilies were always a disappointment.
Peter Barber - You must definitely see Woody, and advise him to put a stop on the card Mme B is so profligately using. Things are getting out of hand.
However, one more NY thought for both Peters, as in another thread we spoke of Dorothy Parker - and this is very much her:
A single flow'r he sent me since we met.
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet -
One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;
"My fragile leaves", it said "his heart enclose."
Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose.
Why is it no-one ever sent me yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.

Peter, I just assumed he was your alter ego. No time to write more, must get back to my lentil stroganoff.

My God Mrs Twine, you know how to make a man drool!! Stroganoff is one of my all time faves, Rick S has a fine recipe for Beef S in one of his books. Had Veal (shhhhh) Chop for my dinner, was very good. Am retiring early this evening, had a busy week. Am reading Charlie Chaplins memoirs, most moving book. Good night Mrs T, sweet dreams.

I wish to make it clear I shall not and have no wish to go to New York, Summertime in England, in particular Lewes and the South Downs, even with the rain, is beyond delightful. A charming female who works in Waitrose has just called me (I gave her my number some time ago) so am ready for an evening discussing good food and wine. Cheers, Peter BYRON.
