Well, the Tavern is neither here nor there, as it's quite separate from the
Vigil plans (if anyone's curious about what we're talking about:
http://www.geocities.com/torlanswingmeister/taberna.html ).  It's sort of
coincidence that it's all happening the same weekend...we decided that we
were going to bring the tavern back to Kingdom A&S several weeks before
Vyncent got the offer.  Now it's just a crazy mad race to try to get
everything done in time for the event and juggle the various projects.
Overcommitted?  Nah...

In the end it's not really up to me :-) but I do want to have a good
assortment of recipes to send to the folks to let them choose.  I will
definitely include the orange flower one -- thanks!!

Yeah, I had the same problem when I made the monstacholes for the Duchesses'
Ball.  The hypocras was right there, as were instructions to dip, but no one
seemed to put two and two together...alas.
