"Of all Lent's ingredients, the most loathed was the red herring. Very cheap and plentiful, it haunted every menu."

Once again I'm struck by how different continental Europe and Britain was from Scandinavia. I come from a people who survived on turnips - later potatoes - and herring well into the early decades of the 1900s, as the only reliable daily source of protein. Meat was for holidays for the working population.

Written around 1400,this is definitely the oldest book that I have read this year. It is a poem that describes a quest that Sir Gawain of King Arthur‘s Round table accepts at a Christmas celebration. An emerald skinned giant dressed in green enters the castle and makes a strange request. Violent hunting scenes did disturb me. A mystery. An adventure.Part romance.Part morality tale of the time with some added magic.

We don't really celebrate Thanksgiving in this house (although I'll send out a donation to the duwamish tribe as soon as I get my new debit card added to my phone) long weekend brunch is *chef's kiss *. Barely making headway in this which is weird because it's delightful.

Haven't had much time to read this for assorted reason. It's delightful so far, though, although I wish it had fewer direct quotes in Middle English.

I found this so interesting. There is so much detail to immerse you into this time and place in people‘s daily lives. And I do like the way it‘s set up, with the reader “time travelling” there. I feel like this is the setting for (or at least bits and pieces are) many role-playing games, as well as much fantasy, whether on purpose or not. It turns out this is a series! I will definitely be continuing
