I went to my food tasting Wednesday night and it went well. I had to fly solo since Myron was out of town and my mom couldn’t make it because her car was being serviced. But I persevered and had 3 entrees to taste all to myself!!!
Well let’s get right to it with the food porn.a.ge!!!
I wasn’t overly impressed with the beef dish. It looked like sliced brisket to me. I didn’t care for the scalloped potatoes at all. They were a little hard. The banquet manager encouraged comments so I noted that on my selection sheet. The chicken and fish were both good though the sauce on the fish was a little heavy. The creamed spinach was not good at all and did not look visually appealing.
So, I guess you are wonder what I ended up choosing, huh??
(PAUSE FOR SUSPENSE, LOL)
I ended picking the chicken dish, mashed potatoes and veggies. I didn’t pick the fish because Myron is not a huge fan of tilapia and because we are having a seafood appetizer. And you never know who doesn’t eat seafood. So I guess I played it a bit safe.
Our final menu will go something like this:
- Deviled Eggs with Caviar
- Spinach and Artichoke Dip
- Shrimp Ceviche
- Chicken Brochette
- Honey Ham
- Blackened Cajun chicken with crawfish sauce
- Herbed Pork tenderloin carving station
- Garlic mashed potatoes
- Veggie medley
Our package comes with soda, raspberry tea, water and coffee. We are bringing in wine (a merlot and moscato) and beer.
Overall, I am happy with how the menu turned out. I am so glad that Myron gave his input, which was important because it’s his wedding too.
I guess we will see what folks think about it all on September 26th!!!
