By spotted dick, I'm talking about the dessert of course. I figured since it's been far too long since we've had a dinner party on hubpages, I figured I'd start one. Who wants to join me in having a nice dinner party on hubpages, while dining on this delicious spotted dick that you see in the picture.
When I first saw the post, I was thinking of SOMETHING ELSE entirely. However, when I saw what you meant, well........I decided to bring some nice cidered tea to the occasion. However, BEFORE dessert, let's have some dinner: 5 roasted capons with oyster and cornbread stuffing, wild rice, peas, buttermilk biscuits, and arugula salad with creamy buttermilk dressing. For creating a musical atmosphere with ambience, we shall play some classical music; perhaps Night on Bald Mountain by Mussorgsky and Ravel and a Fifth of Beethoven. Another good musical piece for the party would be Marian Anderson's arias e.g. Ave Maria.
When I was in 5th grade there was a boy in our class who had spent some time in England as a child. One day we went around the room and said our favorite dessert, and of course, he said his favorite was spotted dick. Everyone started snickering, except for me because I was so horribly innocent.
I had no idea what was so funny and kept envisioning British people eating dalmatian-styled dessert.
