Apparently, several months ago, after watching a show on Food Network that recounted a Madrigal Dinner, I had casually remarked to my husband that it sounded like a fun experience. So, after I had completely forgotten about making that comment, my husband surprised me with tickets to a Madrigal Dinner at the Indianapolis Scottish Rite Cathedral. As a bonus, our dear daughter would also be going with us. A Madrigal Dinner is a Twentieth-Century American invention that recalls an Old World Medieval Christmas Feast.
The players in this play are members of the North Central High School King's Court Singers.
I later found out that we were seated across from the "queen's" parents. Someone asked them if she wore her tiara around the house.
The agenda for the evening.
First we were served warm Wassail and a salad featuring Fresh Greens with Brie, Apples and Walnuts with a Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette.
And here is our roast beast, er, Roast Pork Shank, Haricot Vert and Roasted Potatoes. Warm Rolls and Butter accompanied the dinner.
Peppermint Semifreddo finishes off our dinner.
