Will You Marinate Me?
Wedding season is over for me this year, which means it’s time for a wrap-up (of the food of course, what else?) Two valuable notes:
I’ve noticed that sometimes it’s not a bad idea to order the veggie at a big event like this. They have to prepare far fewer of them, so often it’s something way more original. Check out the crazy layered concoction our one veggie friend got at Travis’ wedding (above), compared to the typical dry steak (below) served to the rest of the table.
At Coli’s wedding in Chi-town, the stand-out dish was the shrimp ceviche. (Am I behind the foodie times? Hadn’t heard of this before.) Now, shrimp is the one food left that my still developing taste buds can’t handle, yet I loved this dish. Somehow the citrus dulls the taste of the shrimp, which I usually find to be too strong. Or maybe it’s just that my taste buds themselves were dulled enough, since this was served quite awhile after cocktail hour started. Anyway, I clearly know eff-all about preparing shrimp, but can someone cook this for me please? FoodNetwork.com’s got a recipe.
