No, no baby, only a Ch’en Ch’en. However, after being married since January,we finally had our wedding reception. After much planning and effort put in from my beautiful Meh, a very Mexican themed fete was had.
It could not have been a more perfect fall day…and according to Mr. Irving, “it was, as I have said, a fine autumnal day; the sky was clear and serene, and nature wore that rich and golden livery which we always associate with the idea of abundance. The forests had put on their sober brown and yellow, while some trees of the tenderer kind had been nipped by the frosts into brilliant dyes of orange, purple, and scarlet…” and the food could not have been more abundant. The courses included homemade black bean burgers, Mexican rice, tofu vegetable dishes, vegetarian tamales, and lots and lots of desserts.
Homemade pies, caramels and blueberry bread from Suzy, and of course four dozen vegan cupcakes, that were provided by Meh’s own neighbor, Dreams to Reality.
Sampling of course was needed in preparation for this, and oh my. I do not know how she did it, but she made the best vegan hazelnut and chocolate cupcakes I have ever tasted. I only wish she had a store front so that I would be able to buy one everyday.
I knew that Sandra (the owner) was good, since she made my Tim Burton meets Lewis Carroll birthday cake.
The soiree was a complete success thanks to some of the most amazing friends and some of the most filling foods a girl could ever hope for.
