Cucumber Crocodiles

Meet Boris, Vincent and Peter.  Made for last night’s Halloween party at Moors Bar in Crouch End.  Ha ha! As Angela Coniam pointed out, if I had made 4, I could have had Christopher too!

Still time to enter my competition over at Silver Screen Suppers….

Prize?  A jar of Bette Davis Marmalade made by yours truly. All you have to do is answer this multiple choice question.  You can email me or put your choice in a comment.  Closing date Monday 31st October at midnight.  Overseas readers welcome to enter – I’ll find a plastic container if it has to travel…

Which of these did Bette Davis say was her favourite breakfast fodder:

1 – Finnan Haddie
2 – Kedgeree
3 – English Muffins

There was a funny moment last night when I was chatting to film-maker Geoffrey Sautner at the bar and he popped something in his mouth.  His girlfriend shrieked, “YOU CAN’T EAT HIS EYE!”  To which he replied, “It’s an olive, I like olives!”  He told me that in Canada there was a kid’s programme that featured Vincent called “Hilarious House of Frightenstein” so I am going to seek that out…
