allochthon treated us to an extremely lovely dinner, and I was actually able to eat much of mine! What a deal. I fear that the secret may be that I had wine with a good nose to start out with, but I suppose if I have to have wine with dinner for a few more days, I can deal with that. Also the heightened smell made the delicate almonds a much sturdier flavor, rah. Pictures of the Dread Pirate Robin (Froggy Roo the Sticky?) forthcoming.
