Where does the time go? It's hard to believe that a week ago at this time, I was baking in my sister's kitchen like a crazy woman, helping prepare some of the goodies for my niece's wedding reception! (Isn't she adorable?) I'm so excited to share with you some of the marvelous items that we got to eat, see, and experience at this reception. It was amazing.
But first a little background info... My sister has a great friend named Lorraine, that moved away to Las Vegas a few years ago and started up a catering business. She has always had a knack for entertaining, so it is perfect that she is now running a successful business in which she is so talented. She was the brains behind much of what you'll see.
Now, my sisters and I are fairly simple folks---not a whole lot of fluff and frills. Not that we don't like that sort of stuff--we do! We just don't naturally think in those terms very often, (or don't have the patience sometimes to do it like that!) So, while my sister and my niece had ideas and thoughts of what they wanted, Lorraine expounded upon them, took them to the next level, and made everything just top-notch.
So, today, I'm giving you some images of the fantastic food we experienced, and letting you drool over it all during the weekend. (Wish that I could share some of the recipes with you, but unfortunately, I was sworn to secrecy by Lorraine, and later my memory was erased, so no luck! Sorry!)
Next week I'll have more on the decor and fun that we had, along with more information on Lorraine's business. Enjoy!
The evening's buffet menu:
~Grilled Teriyaki Chicken and Pineapple
~Parmesan Twice Baked Red Potatoes
~Lemon Streusel Bars
~Double Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies (I got to make both of these, and wow--were they addictive!)
~Mini Fruit Pizzas
~Veggie Shooters with Garlic Dip
~Chocolate Trifles--Do those look incredible, or what?
Everything was so beautiful and delicious! Have a great weekend everyone!
