Tom Bawcock’s Eve

December 24th, 2010 · No Comments

Trust you were all able to celebrate Tom Bawcocks Eve!  It’s a great way to get Christmas off to a good start on the 23rd – a day ahead of most people.

The image of Tom going out and battling the elements to catch fish so that the village of Mousehole didn’t starve for Christmas is perhaps a little extreme for us blue water cruisers.  You can make the pie and sing the song.

Andrew brought down some of the odd liqueurs that have accumulated in the cupboard over the years.  There was some grand marnier and galliano and these have been put to good use in Harvey Wallbangers and Mellow Yellow Birds! Recipes below.
