Free food.........Yum

I had the food and cake tasting this Saturday. I wasn't sure what to expect, but everything was great.

The dinner is going to be yummy. We are having 3 meats, 2 veggies, and 2 starches. When we went for the tasting there were really only 2 things we weren't sure about. The chicken and the side of pasta. We were hesitant on picking a chicken because one had mushrooms and the other was bland. I loved the mushrooms, but we wanted to be sure that people would eat it also and I know a lot of people don't eat mushrooms. We finally decide that if they didn't like it they could pick something else. Plus the kids are getting fries and chicken strips (LD's choice, not mine), so they won't complain.

As for the pasta we had 4 choices; Alfredo, Pasta Con Broccoli, Lasagna, and a Bow Tie pasta with red sauce. I hate Pasta Con Broccoli and the Alfredo was out because LD tends to get sick off of cream sauces. He has a slight touch of lactose intolerance, which means I don't have to worry about him eating any of the ice cream. More for me!!! Ok back to the pasta. We decided that Lasagna is too much of a meal to be a side, but if the Bow Tie pasta sauce was bland then we would do Lasagna. The Bow Tie pasta was very good. The sauce had lots of seasoning in it to give it a good taste. Our choices were made.

After this was done we were off to do the cake tasting. I had decided that my parents and his parents could come to the food tasting, which his parents declined, however I felt strongly that only LD, Munchkin, and I should be present for the cake tasting. This caused a problem since we had to bring the samples home to taste them and both our houses are usually swarming with family. His family had a graduation party Saturday afternoon, so the house was conveniently empty. Munchkin went to the graduation party, so he missed the initial tasting, but he got to finish the samples off later that day.

The two of us have different tastes in food, which can cause problems, but we did end up agreeing on one flavor and then we threw in one that each of our mothers requested and then the traditional white with fruit filling. We figure that the grooms cake can be the chocolate one, since that seems to be the tradition anyhow. Now I just have to have him tell me what he wants it too look like so that I can get that taken care of.

Saturday was a good productive day. I got 2 things down, but I have a ton of things still to do. I can't believe that I have less than 4 months to finish planning this wedding. Time has flown by, so I guess I better get my butt in gear and finish planning.
