thirteenfridays – Strawberry Moon Special

thirteenfridays
St Anthony is the patron saint of lost things, how appropriate for Absent but not Forgotten that in 2014 his feast day of 13th June is on a Friday.  Coinciding with a full moon, known as a strawberry or a honey moon, a great excuse for a thirteenfridays special.

So cheese ( because that’s what the moon is made of…), fish and bread for St Anthony’s feast day, honey and strawberries for the June moon and our usual thirteen-ness in ingredients and numbers. Blue Moon beers and honeyed mead to tipple.
