I have the privilege of planning and preparing a menu for a wedding celebration next weekend. Upon the ceremony conclusion, there will be light appetizers, dessert and of course, champagne. There will also be an afternoon celebration as well. Here’s what I’ll be doing for immediately following the ceremony:
*Large shrimp shooters-mini shot glasses filled with homemade cocktail sauce to about 1/3 full. A large shrimp will be placed into the cup, then sprinkled with finely chopped fresh parsley.
*Prosciutto bread sticks with boursin cheese and arugula.
*Skewered grape tomato, basil and fresh marinated mozzarella balls.
*Individual cheesecakes with fresh raspberry sauce
*German chocolate cupcakes
The afternoon celebration will be casual with more delicious food offerings. Here’s what I’m doing:
*Warm individually wrapped ham off the bone sandwiches with swiss cheese and dijonnaise.
*Bacon wrapped large shrimp with chipotle dipping sauce.
*Warm potato salad with bacon, blue cheese a sweet apple cider dressing.
*Green salad with toasted walnuts, pears, blue cheese. Homemade dijon dressing.
*Carrot and bulgur salad with toasted pine nuts and feta.
The grand finale? I will be making a moist spice cake with cream cheese frosting. I will simply decorate it with fresh flowers.
I will be up to my eyeballs in amazing ingredients next weekend!
Have a great day:-)
