wedding receptions!

I had two weddings this weekend, one Saturday and one Sunday. It’s great celebrating with family and friends, it kinda wore me out, but it was worth it! Both of the happy newlyweds remembered me and had a vegan meal for me, so much better than stuffing my purse with Luna Bars 🙂

Unfortunately I could not get a good shot of my meal at the second reception, but here’s from the first…

Baby spinach salad with walnuts and cranberries, and I think I tasted brown sugar?

Eggplant with marinara sauce, and some kind of breading or coating underneath. I couldn’t tell what it was, but it was delicious. The veggies I think were just steamed, the artichoke was my favorite.

And I actually got a dessert, a couple strawberries dipped in dark chocolate. It was my first time getting full at a wedding reception!

The second time came the very next day. Last night at the second reception I thought I was going to eat veggies and hummus, the two vegan things I found in the buffet line. When I got back to the table, I found a big plate of some sort of root vegetable curry. There were carrots, but we couldn’t decide what the other was – maybe parsnips? Served with rice. It was bright yellow with turmeric, and just lovely. Luckily there was lots of dancing after each meal, hopefully I burned most of the calories I consumed.

A big Thank You to my friends for thinking of me on your special day!
