Wedding Dinner Menu

Most of you haven't been talking with me about my wedding a lot, which is probably a relief for you. And for me, I am more stressed about painting Scott's house and moving. However, now I find myself considering the menu for my lovely dinner and I would like to run it past everybody, please feel free to add in your opinion and tell me what you think. Some items I am not sure about and others I may have missed.

Now, you do need to know that my theme is 'picnic' for the reception and it is in my mom's backyard. It is very nice and I am buying lots of red and blue gingham to make picnic blankets and tableclothes. The food is a 'make your own sandwich' buffet and I am having cake that is not a wedding cake (mainly because I can't convince myself to spend $800 on something I am going to eat and that nobody will really remember). Without further ado, here is my current menu choices:

Appetizers & Sides
Deviled Eggs
Baked Beans
Cocktail Wieners
Spinach Dip
Crackers & French Bread
Strawberries / blueberries / raspberries
Fruit Platter
Potatoes Salad
Garden Salad (Ranch and Italian dressing)

Roast Turkey
Roast Beef
Pulled Pork

Medium Cheddar

Mustard (x2)
Cream Cheese
Cranberry Sauce


Ice Cream Sundae Area w/ hot fudge, caramel, nuts, coconut, butterfinger pieces, whip cream

Sorry to be a Debbie Downer here but sprouts can be quite the carrier for foodbourne illness. I'm not saying this to deter you from having them but just to make you aware.

Infections Associated with Eating Seed Sprouts

ah yes, that is why you cannot eat them when you are preggers, but they are still quite popular. I am not sure why as they have never appealed to me.

I like sprouts and will risk food born illnesses for them. Mmmm. Sprouts. Particularly at Brueggers on the roadhouse turkey sandwhich instead of lettuce. Mmmm.

Looks like fun choices.

this sounds like FUN!! and it also greatly appeals to my love of sandwiches, eggs and CHEESE. i think you've got the hang of it... ;o)

Yeah, I eat them all the time too but I just wanted to alert the 10lees. The public health worker in me made me do it.

Ahhh, finally a fellow sprout lover. Mwahh hah ha ha haaaaaaaa. Someday, we shall rule the world!

I was more than a little disturbed to learn that you can get e. coli from bagged salad. That's disturbing because I don't eat sprouts nearly as much as I eat lettuce. And I like the bagged salad, I'm not going to lie.

I can't help leaving the message after i saw it!!

Oh...i wish i was still in Seattle,but not in this raining city...-_-

To add to the disturbation of bagged salad... We had an incident of e. coli in the Twin Cities last year with Dole salad sold at Rainbow Foods. Neat eh?

Hi Ping I am glad you had a chance to check out my blog. Now I can brag that I have a reader in Taiwan!! :-)

mmmmmmm, e coli, tasty. I am not sure I'd want a free bag of e coli lettace, but to each her own.

So what does everybody think about the ice cream idea? I know it isn't usual for a wedding... yeah or nay??

Posted by: 10lees at May 16, 2006 08:55 AM

I like ice cream. "All we need is some ice cream and a hug."

Is it going to be B&J's Oatmeal cookie cunch cause that would be awesome.

Posted by: dr gonzo at May 17, 2006 07:45 AM

i didnt post that. i am assuming it was brandi using my moniker and link b/c it defaults on betsy's computer.

however i too am a fan of oatmeal cookie crunch.

That is a very delicious ice cream, but it's not really a sundae type of ice cream. more of an 'i'll eat it until i am sick' ice cream.... but there are so many people who love it are going, maybe I should just get that... :-)
