Okay, everybody, stand well back. Guthrie beren Melanell, Chief Sword, is blogging today. Just be calm and don’t make any sudden moves, and chances are pretty good that nobody will get hurt.
I’m supposed to talk about food. I’d rather talk about fighting, but I don’t mind talking about food. My favorite food is game, but the bloodless worm who keeps this establishment has no stomach for fighting, hunting, or killing, and eats very little good, red meat.
So I’ll talk about gravy. That should be mild enough to suit even her infantile taste. I do like gravy with my meat or potatoes or bread. Or this:
Mushroom Fritter With Gravy
A cook in one of the villages I rode through made this up for me during the border wars. I had found some wild mushrooms — morels, they’re called — in the woods. She halved them and soaked them in salt water for about ten minutes, then mixed them with flour, egg, and milk and fried them in butter. When they were done, she made a gravy from butter, flour, and some of the soaking water.
They were so good, I let her leave the house before I burned it down.
Guthrie appears in the SAGE trilogy, where he comes to the sort of end he ought to come to. The SAGE books are available from independent booksellers through Indiebound and at Amazon in print and electronic versions.
