The One Where They Did it All Over Again

Catering again tomorrow... This time, a big wedding reception. I thought you might like to see a couple of pictures from last Saturday’s 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. It was really beautiful.

These meringues are Fawn’s specialty. They are actually mini pavlovas, if you know what that is. They simply make my heart go pitter-patter. And not just in a pre-diabetic palpitation sort of way. She brought me a platter of them for my birthday. I let everyone have just one, and then I ate all the rest all by myself.

Here is a glimpse of the Shrimp Scampi Caesar Salad from the recipe I posted last week:

I also adore this punch. The trend for the last couple years has been lemonades. This is so much simpler... plus I just love anything fizzy.

I was thinking I would post a recipe for something-or-other tomorrow, if I am still alive at the end of the day. Does anyone have any special requests? Tell me your request, make it interesting, and it shall be granted. Just don’t ask me for the recipe for the meringues. I don’t know it, and I’m not asking... some things are just so magical they should remain a mystery.

Coconut shrimp!!! I wish I were there to help you. Soon, soon. Did Josh tell you that we might come up for a day next week? It depends if we get UCLA housing or not. If we get it we wont come down but if we don't we need to go look at a place that our friend owns that she is willing to rent to us for super cheap. We'll probably know June 1st if we are coming or not.

Wow - Now I am hungry! Everything looks so good. That cake is gorgeous!
Do you do catering or did you just attend the party?

I bet the happy couple loved it!!
