What I've been up to ...

SPOILER WARNING: if you are coming to the wedding and you want to be suprised by the meal, stop reading NOW!!!

Well, this week has been crazy. I had a visit with my specialist on Tuesday, who is based in Toronto. I was referred to her when I was living in Toronto in grad school, and since I like her and trust her, I haven't asked for a referral to someone closer to me! So, I took the train there and back in the same day. Yesterday, I spent half the day with my mom visiting her doctor. And got good news! Not great, but certainly better than most people hear. And today, I took a long lunch to meet with the reception venue to finalized the dinner menu.

So, I heard from a friend who was married at the same place we're having our reception that their cold peach soup is amazing. So, our soup course is cold peach soup. Our salad course is the standard garden salad with a cranberry vinaigrette. The dinner is choice of chicken, salmon, vegetarian, or kid's chicken fingers, served with Ontario wine. The dessert will be a fruit-pecan upside down cake with a caramel or rum drizzle. Apparently, the chef just came up with this recipe a few days ago (it's not on the menu yet!) and all the workers there couldn't stop eating it. So I was sold!

So, yay!

That sounds delicious. Perfect flavours for the season, and Ontario wine will be a great match.
