The Spice Wippitts

We're a bit late posting this week. Sorry. As we keep telling the Madwoman, it's probably due to weakness from lack of food. Anyway, last Saturday we were jollied off to the Open Air Museum to have our heads stuffed with yet more history. As we keep telling everyone, never mind filling our heads, try filling our mouths a bit more often instead please.
We found a historical looking person - clutching tankards and glasses, he was also obviously in search of sustence, so we followed him in hope.
This started to look hopeful. This weeks historical re-enactors were apparently on their way to the Spice Islands via Chalfont St Giles. We were less interested in the itinerary than that here were lots of spices, perfect for creating a luscious sucking pig marinade! 

At last we found the kitchen area, and got quite excited when we spotted a fire being started in a  sucking pig size tray, although we couldn't see a spit for it anywhere. Turned out all that effort was simply for boiling water to wash things in. Hmmmph. We are the Spice Wippits and we'll tell you what we want, what we really, really want ...
