Yes, I actually wrote “recipe for love”. This post will of course be a bit mushy since it’s about us becoming mr. and mrs. superfoodies on June 1. Throw in 2 superfoodies, 2 families, some legal mumbo jumbo, good food, drinks and a cake (of course) and you have superfoodies recipe for love… and marriage! Aside from the torrential rain ALL DAY! everything went great.
Started with a tough workout in the morning (L wants me to post a separate section of the blog about our food/excersice program that has resulted in alot of weightloss, good muscle growth, all the while eating fantastic foods and drinks) and feeling fit and very excited, we got ready for the big day.
After the ceremony, we all piled into a big SUV limo and took the family to our favourite local Italian restaurant, Fazio’s, where we enjoyed great food, wine and service, the cornerstones of our world! They even volunteered to call the chef in early to accommodate our 3 pm arrival time.
We had some beef carpaccio, stuffed mushroom, their version of caprese salad, and delicious bread to start, followed by our go to meals at this particular place: gnocchi and cream dill sauce and tender osso buco, shared between us, of course. Only complaint was that the gnocchi, which are normally like eating soft little pillows in sauce, were just a bit tough, but the flavour was still there.
Everyone else had a great cross section of the menu including manicotti, supreme of chicken, veal chop, salmon, steak, duck! So many flavours! The food and service helped to make the day fantastic. I can’t say enough about how well it went.
After dinner we headed back for some cake that we had made at the Sugar Chalet. Naturally it was banana cake, one of our favourites! Also had bavarian cream in the middle and butter cream icing. In fact it was so good, that L couldn’t stop talking about it on the Vegas honeymoon, just praying that the kids had put the rest in the fridge for our return. (they did!) So… have a look at the pics below and stay tuned for Vegas food times!
