Reinventing the Game

So this past weekend was Birka, a fairly large event for us in the northeast. 1,500 friends and acquaintances from all over the East Kingdom. It’s shopping, fighting, fencing, and court until you drop. It’s one of the events that you almost always come home feeling more tired  than when you left to go. At … Continue reading »

After making this traditional family dish for our meal plan at Pennsic I have gotten a lot of requests for the recipe. Keep in mind that this is a “cheater” sauerkraut – my family equivalent to a quick and dirty casserole that you would throw together on a Wednesday night. It is not a period … Continue reading »

Post Pennsic Ruminations

I keep a journal during Pennsic. For every Pennsic I’ve gone to I have at least five entries. Most of the time I write them and don’t really come back to them until I’m trying to find something else in  my notebook.  I was cleaning out my computer cabinet today and came across my old … Continue reading »

Viking Hood Part II

So I began working on a Viking hood prior to Pennsic, the assumption being that it would get a bunch of use because everyone was going on the assumption that it was going to be a wet and generally miserable Pennsic in terms of weather. It ended up being one of the driest Pennsic’s in thirty … Continue reading »
