Not Engaged Yet

It's Monday, which means I can say...

I'm getting married this weekend!

I was on the phone with my mom on Friday about the final payment to our venue (I'm so lucky that my parents are paying that part) and she was like "Wow, so, uh, this is actually going to happen isn't it?" and I said "apparently -- I have no idea how that happened."

I keep going back and forth between crazy excitement and crazy panic... with a few moments of utter disbelief sprinkled in.

So I really wanted to make a WR AW today but I don't really have anything new to share... so I thought I would just share our menu.  Everybody likes talking about food, right?

So for our appetizers we're having a fruit and cheese display plus three passed hors d'oeuvres:  chicken salad sliders, beef sliders with grilled onion and bleu cheese, and mini-crabcakes with cajun aioli.  Yummmy.  Then we're having two salads (caesar and an italian salad with artichokes and feta), three sides (horseradish and gouda whipped potatoes, baked mac and cheese, and grilled veggies) and two entrees (filet mignon and chicken breast stuffed with spinach and gouda).

I have exactly one vegetarian guest.  She's one of my BMs.  I was really worried about the lack of vegetarian options on the menu, but she's fully aware of the issue and is just happy I was thinking about her.

I feel like like the non-vegetarians will love it.  Right?

    Aww, I remember when YOU got engaged (at the zoo!) and now you're a married hag!

    We're all just growing up so fast.

    It sounds pretty yummy.  Can the venue make her a special veggie dish? Or if she eats dairy, let her eat the mac & cheese, veggies or potatoes and then give her a grilled portabello mushroom to substitute the meat portion?

    Squee I can't believe you are getting married this week! Is there anything else you need to work on this week?

    Wow that is so exciting! You are so close! This week will be crazy, I bet.

    Could you ask the caterer for one vegetarian plate? We had 2 vegetarians and they gave them separate meals. We only had to pay a tiny bit extra.

    Jaycee and Danser - I'll ask about providing a different meal for her.  I don't think it'll be possible, though, from what I know about how our venue kitchen works.  I told her I'll order her something from nearby if she wants.

    Thank you for spelling that word right.

    And YES.  We're leaving four days after the wedding for a week at an all-inclusive in Mexico.  My goal is to gain twenty pounds.

    Wow Mexico sounds like so much fun! I've never been there before, as a vegeterian I'd ask for a plate of all of the sides, they sounds so yummy, especially the mashed potatoes!

    I'll have the crabcakes, potatoes, mac and cheese, and veggies, please! Oh, and cake. Lots of cake.

    Sounds good to me, and I don't know about your BM, but I'm used to making meals out of side dishes. It sounds a bit like what I get at Boston Market.
