I’ve got to say that I was over the top in the food department this weekend. That being said, I might as well go with it for the purposes of our favorite day of the week…What I Ate Wednesday!! As always a curtsy to the lovely Jenn at Peas & Crayons for being the hostess with the mostest! A hug to whoever knows who the original hostess with the mostest was! (I bet Ele or Val will know the answer) Before I get carried away with nostalgia…let’s get carried away with Food!
I’m going to work backwards, just because I feel like it. Sunday was birthdays for as far as you could see. We started out at about 1pm at my sister Ele’s to celebrate niece Carrie’s birthday.

I was greeted by these happy faces!
Oh, no…not pizza!
Ok, so I ate 2 pieces. 😦
The cake with Ralph’s “special candle” again!
Cookies and cake…who could ask for more!
Later that same day…Birthday number two. Our grandson, also a Patrick turned 17!
Patrick, Alex and their Mom, Heather
Bill and Ralph
Oh yes…food…the Steakhouse Dilemma again…
Large house salad with ranch on the side…please don’t mention the peanuts in the bucket…:-(
The whole gang heading home…Birthday Day is Done (What’s wrong with my neck?!?)
Saturday was wedding day! You can see the story of the wedding here. This post is all about the food!
Thanks to the Mother of the Bride, food choices were vegetarian friendly. My favorite thing was a wonderful eggplant dish. Grilled eggplant topped with fried eggplant topped with a large slice of tomato, cheese and basil. So good. The kindly server gave me a second one when I turned down chicken and told her I was a vegetarian. I didn’t realize Ralph had gotten one just for me. Three I tell you! So Good! There were also green beans, veggie medley and garden salad. I was STUFFED!
But there was more to come…
Brownies made by the Brides’s Mom. Brownie and caramel and walnuts…Oh My! So tasty. I had styling assistance by both Ralph and Ele. Guess they think I need a Lot of help!
Oh, and cake…did I mention cake?
It doesn’t look it, but it was pumpkin spice. Very subtle flavor and wonderful not too sweet icing. I should have styled it, but I wanted to eat it. It was wonderful. The man who made the cake was at our table and told us all about the process.
I saved the best for last.
The cake was so beautiful, I wanted to save it for last. Again, it was a wonderful day and full of wonderful tastes.
So that’s it from me for What I Ate Wednesday. Be sure to stop by Peas & Crayons to join all of the fun. Say Hi to Jenn and all the revelers. Read some blogs, leave some comments, drool a little when appropriate. It may be the most fun you can have with your computer!
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
