I don't usually get wrapped up in television shows, particularly since we don't have a tv. But I've read many a book on King Henry VIII and all his drama, so when my uncle, Chris, starting raving about the show I had to go pick up Season One. And so it began. I was immediately sucked in, and the characters are quite well done. Granted, it's kind of trashy, and the first two seasons are by far better than Season three, but I have high hopes for Season 4, which we've just started viewing.
So anyhow, when I picked up these little crown muffin tins on clearance at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago, I immediately thought of Henry VIII's 6 wives. I mean just think - if there'd been two extra tins I could've done one for each wife. Although, come to think of it, not sure it would be such a great historical moment to teach my 5 year old about. I'll keep my amusements to myself.
English Cottage Pie made from our grass fed beef, and some broccoli. Pierce at every bite of it all! Nothing was leftover. Perhaps he has a few royal delusions himself?
