Here are the dishes we sampled - 2 salads, 2 mains and 2 desserts. In the end, I think the dishes we have at our wedding will be from another menu. But, I'm confident that any option will be good.
Both salads were good. The first one was a pear and candied walnut salad. Overall, the salad was pretty plain, but the candied walnuts were delicious. Unfortunately, one of our guests is deathly allergic to nuts - so that won't work.
To taste, we tried a beef and chicken dish. Because I so rarely eat it at home, I'll order steak at a restaurant. This one was...just ok. Not bad, just not a tonne of flavour. The dollop of garlic butter on top didn't do much for the steak.
Saturday was a day full of shopping for everything I need to take to the seamstress tomorrow. I'm not much of a shopper, so any way I could get out of going to multiple malls to buy a pair of shoes was highly appealing to me. I ended up going with these shoes. They're not something I would typically wear -- but I think they're cute, will go with the dress and will be good to pair with a number of different outfits post-wedding.
The shawl is coming along. I'm now more than half way done. But I really need to pick up the pace. (Note: The shawl looks crappy at the moment - but will get better after blocking)
Speaking of which...back to the shawl.
