Tonight was C & M's wedding. Even though I didn't cook any of the food I thought it would be nice to take some pictures for this blog anyway, as a tribute to our dear friends.
I forgot to take pictures of the cocktail hour. Needless to say there was a ton of food. I sampled maybe a fourth of what was available. Favorites included roasted beets with onion, penne with vodka sauce, meatballs, eggplant rollatini, calamari and coconut shrimp. There were also a ton of pasta salads, shrimp cocktail, pigs in a blanket, eggrolls, mozzarella and tomato salad, etc. etc.
I apologize in advance for the horrible lighting. I blame the reception hall.
Dinner started with minestrone soup:
...a light broth with pasta and vegetables.
The salad course:
...consisted of lettuce, tomato, cucumber and radish with a balsamic vinaigrette
For my entree I got the chicken francaise:
...which was lightly breaded with a lemon sauce and served with roasted potatoes, zucchini, squash and carrots.
In addition to wedding cake:
...there was a Viennese table with a chocolate peanut butter cake, eclairs, cream puffs, mini cheesecakes and a chocolate fountain with strawberries and bananas for dipping.
CONGRATULATIONS, C & M!!!! We wish you many years of happiness together!
