after the super short and to the point wedding, we were invited to join the couple at a place called Mariah's where we were served (i use serve loosly as it was a reception buffet, so you can get only what you love) appetizers of raw veggies and dip and a cheese tray, the veggie tray had red peppers, cucumbers broccoli cherry tomatoes and of course carrots. im not really sure what kind of dip it was with them but it was creamy and delicious. next we were called to the main meal by the heavenly smell of ham as the wait staff opened the lids of the serving dishes, but i will get to ham in a minute. i almost decided to skip salad since i just ate a bu
nch of veggies but i looked over at the bowl of the bride's 7 yr old neice and she had that bad boy loaded up with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers a little lettuce and cheese and some yummy thick ranch dressing, my bowl ended up looking similar to hers except i threw on what turned out to crunchy roasted black eyed peas, who woulda thought? i loved it!! ok the homeade mac and cheese was good though we all agreed that my MILs is better (love ya mom). i totally loaded up on mashed potatoes with the bits of skin mixed in, i think it was also mixed up with some sour cream and chive because there was no need for butter or salt. the next dish was zuchini and squash, you would think i had enough of that this summer but i had some anyway and it was good stuff. and now the moment you have all been waiting for
................. DA DA DA DA....................
(sing it) hhhhaaaammmm!!!
and good ham it was not too salty, cut it with a fork thinly sliced hamm, with some pineapple, but i didnt eat any of the pineapple.
then there was carrot cake for desert, it had caramel glaze drizzled over it, yum.
so that was the food.
oh and i wanted to show you guys this. apparently mr. potato head is trapped in our living room vent and making a vain attempt to get someones attention.
