Wedding whirlwind!! My wedding season has come to an end and it’s been a great time. I’ve never seen my friends so beautiful and happy. This past weekend was no different. My bestie from college, my dear KK, was married this past weekend in Upstate NY to her love, Mr. Deeter. It was a completely different affair than S’s farm wedding– both were amazing- but this was big country club 3 day affair, the whole enchilada.
And please, don’t be mad, but. Big BUT. I forgot my camera. For the whole thing. Didn’t take a single photo. As did the other girls I was with. I have my fingers crossed that the one KK’s photog took of us on the dance floor comes out well, b/c if not, well darnit!
KK looked phenomenal, it was a lovely ceremony, filled with family and traditions, there were touches of both of their family heirlooms and tributes to those that couldn’t be there. Then there was the reception. I had asked her Dad, Mr. K earlier in the day, “What’s for dinner?” He took about 10 minutes to answer completely. The food was great, different stations- carving, mashed potato bar, salmon bar, everything for everyone. And the cake. It really was the tastiest wedding cake I’ve had to date. Simple yellow cake with raspberry jam/curd in the middle, and a light whipped frosting. I could’ve eaten 5 pieces, but I stuck to one so I could get my dance on :).
The weekend was amazing, I was so unbelievably thrilled to be able to share this with KK and Deeter, Mazel Tov you two!!
I wrapped up the weekend, with a flight back to Boston and was treated to comforting meal of risotto & homemade bread with Nate & Kate. Nate picked me up at the airport and Kate made us all dinner. They take such good care of me! They knew I probably didn’t have anything ready for dinner and would need to go out and get something, so we had a nice dinner in and got a chance to catch up. I also brought them goodies from the wedding, a few leftover Buckeye candies from the reception. It’s a Columbus, OH thing, OSU-Buckeyes-Buckeye candies. Don’t worry, I’ll be documenting them being made this christmas with my dear C$ and her mom. (Yeah, sorry, I give my friends weird nicknames, you’ll get used to it)
Well I certainly have been rambling now for awhile, as for the title of the post, since I’ve been fully enthralled in wedding fever I thought it only an appropriate nod to the tradition, so for dinner I had:
something old: week old veggies from the farm that needed to be used up
new: recipe for you to see here
borrowed: my mom’s pyrex baking dish, I’m pretty sure this migrated somehow from her house to my apt
and…. purple?: purple cauliflower as well
