Today Loulou and Kit helped me to make the best cucumber crocodile ever.
Step two, Lulu putting in the teef.
Step 3 putting in the goodies (cheese topped with gherkins or cocktail onions) plus googly eyes made from stuffed olives, and legs made from slices of bell peppers…
Grr! Kit spikes the croc with a toothpick loaded with cheese and an onion.
The crocodile in all his splendour.
We scoffed the cheese and pickles whilst drinking Ptolemy’s MAGNUM of champagne. Part of her prize as Fabric Designer of the Year, we made many toasts. To us all for being so lucky in life to have such wonderful friends, to the completion of the Silver Screen Suppers book (this happened today with Groucho) and to Maxine, for bringing Ptolemy into the world.
What a wonderful, fabulous day full of friendship and cucumber.
