|Christmas Dining Room Table Set.|
It is Christmas Eve in Hesse Seewald and Mrs. Fritz and I are busy with last minute preparations for the Christmas holiday. Shown above is the dining room table, set by yours truly who doubles as the house butler. I still have to get the silver polish out and polish up a few serving dishes that have been a part of the House of Seewald collection for several generations. Those of you who live in the UK will probably notice the "crackers" that are at each place setting.
Mrs. Fritz is preparing the Christmas Eve feast (which will be eaten in the kitchen) of pork cutlets served in a white wine sauce with sliced apples, wild rice, and French cut green beans. I will be setting the Stilton cheese out on a platter soon so that it will served at room temperature.
While she is working on the meal, Lady Emma and I will go to Christmas Eve service and then hurry back in time for dinner.
Tomorrow, we have a large number of guests, mostly family members, who are joining us for a Christmas Day feast. Mrs. Fritz's brother was able to make it at the last minute, flying in from some foreign post in order to be with us, so we are all very happy about that.
I want to wish every one a merry Christmas. Peace be with you.
