An Italian In His Undercrackers

Look closely at the diners 

I was worried about the food.
After all Chic Eleanor is a fine diner and sara and her Italian Professor have lived their former lives in France and Italy where good food is as normal as breathing
I kept things simple with homemade soup and sourdough bread I baked yesterday morning, I then chose an all in one chicken,chorizo and veg dish smothered in garlic and herbs which impressed everyone and things were going swimingly until Eleanor jumped at the touch of hot dish of buttered beans and unexpectedly  flung them into the Italian Professor's lap
Things then got all a bit blurry with guests leaping and swearing in foreign tongues and with much
 shouting and trousers being pulled off!
Chic Eleanor maintained her composure throughout and sipping her wine said quietly
" I have appeared to have caused a calamity" as my other guests ran up to the bathroom to tend to a groin of third degree butter burns.
But things soon calmed down as everyone returned to finish their main courses. The Italian Professor sitting quite unconcerned in his underpants for the rest of the night.
I laughed until I cried.
A lovely night

    1. I never believed that i will be happy again after much frustration. I have been rejected by my husband after Six(6) years of marriage just because he met another woman and he left me and the kids to suffer. One day when i was reading through the web i stumbled at a post on how chief dr lucky the great spell caster has helped people to restore broken marriages and relationships and curing of diseases. I emailed him immediately to help my situation via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com He told me not to worry that my husband will return to me begging and shedding tears of forgiveness. I am so happy that my husband actually returned to me in 48 hours after i obeyed the words and instructions of chief dr lucky. contact him today in any of your problems for a lasting solution via: chiefdrlucky@gmail.com or call/whats app +2348132777335 Website: http://chiefdrluckysolutionhome.website2.me/

  9. That accident proneness I mentioned yesterday seems to have spread to anyone who visits you for a meal now! Like the sound of the meal though - any chance of that recipe for the chorizo thing?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Easy! Brown 8-10 chicken thighs and drumsticks in oil which has been gently frying a whole loop of diced chorizo.
      Place in large roasting dish with halved small potatoes a whole bulb of garlic broken up red onion and tarragon .cover with the juices from frying and add more olive oil if needed. Cook 3/4 hour at 180 add pitted black olives 10 minutes before serving

  11. Good job he didn't need to go to casualty. How did you acquire these butter burns? Oh! Really? (pssst! we've got a guy in with butter burns to his groin!).

  12. I must admit that buttered beans never get me that excited. Sure it wasn't a striptease party?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh my,,,,only at your house :)

  14. flying butter beans sounds so very harry potter-ish. it's events like that which make for memorable dinners.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Those are the very best sort of dinner parties. I have memories of a broken chair and someone falling through the newly plastered wall of my dining room.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Lesson noted. Beware of buttered beans.

    ReplyDelete
  17. That's a dinner party that won't be forgotten in a hurry.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Another priceless story from you. And this one not even caused by you or the dogs, which is miraculous. Those are wonderful guests. The meal sounds delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  19. the buttered beans will no longer be on john's supper party menu. what a nice group of people though.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Off to an interesting start, the first time you have a male guest for dinner, he ends up out of his trousers. You will be telling variations on this story for years!

  21. Can I really be the first to notice your Dottie photo on the right, which I love, love, LOVE! (Now you're going to tell me that it's been there for months!)

  22. You may have invented a new party game.

    ReplyDelete
  23. That could have gone bad but, since it wasn't ....LOL. Dinner and a show.

    ReplyDelete
  24. ...and a memorable evening was had by all.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Somehow I want to think you planned this pantsless feast/feat.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Only at yours, haha. It sounds like a brilliant evening ... only you could get an Italian hunk to eat the rest of a meal in his underpants and blame butterbeans!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. So, a very quiet and pleasant evening.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I wish Chic Eleanor was my friend John,she sounds great fun.Perhaps you should invite a gentleman for supper,oil your platter well and hope for the best x

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks for the recipe John - I shall try it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Recipe sound delicious. Were they buttered beans or butter beans - need to know!
    I'm glad it all went well despite the calamity.

    I like tbe fact that your guest has his photo taken wearing only his drawers on his lower half, whilst dining at one of you 'candlelit soirrees'.
    AND it has been published to boot!

  32. And, it wasn't you, who flung buttered beans over your guest (or yourself).
    It sounds and looks like a truly wonderful evening.

    What a truly memorable evening. It's clear all of you are classy folks to carry on with aplomb! Whatever shall happen at your next dinner party? Thanks for the laughs!

    Have the dogs forgiven you for consigning them to Bluebell? Has Bluebell forgiven you?

    I've made note of the recipe and thank you for that, too. Enjoy the leftovers!

    Hugs!

  34. Sounds like a really fun evening despite the mishap. Things never seem to go smoothly around you but it shows how loved you are that everyone just carried on.

    ReplyDelete
  35. This will be one of those "Do you remember the time.." stories! Life is interesting at your place.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I find it all rather puzzling. Did they laugh until they cried? How did they react to your laughter? How was the woman who tipped the dish? Why was a warning not given about the very hot dish put on the table? I would have been mortified about the whole thing. In the photo the Italian professor's wife does not look particularly happy.

    8. You have no voice here Ursula . Go away

    9. If the dish had been in the oven the guests should have been warned of potential hazard. I think the scene would have looked funny from a viewing standpoint a like Michael Crawford sketch.

  37. Lordy, you have the best stories. I wonder how they'll get the grease out of those trousers! The Italian professor seems very confident in his own skin, a good thing as it turns out. Your dinner menu sounds excellent and the company just as good. One for the memory bank for sure :)

  38. I can't tell, briefs or boxers?

  40. Your life is a bleedin' Ealing Comedy (mixed with Shakespearean Tragedy, of course, which comes to us all). I am leaving Blogland for a while, or perhaps forever, to try to find the comedy or at least farce within my own petty tragedies. I wish you well John, not that my wishes ever brought anyone any benefit.

    Good heavens! You seem to know the best people- just address the immediate issue and the carry on. However I believe that in the Old days you used to get both dinner and a movie before getting down to skivvies.

  46. And you’ll always have a story to tell . . .
