Chinese Fooooooooood

Mom suggested that I write about what I did yesterday. I thought this would be a good idea since it is one of the reasons I am in so much pain today.

Yesterday our friend Kendra and Allen got married. It was a beautiful day with a nice ceremony, wonderful music, and from what I hear a great dessert reception. However we did not make it to the dessert reception. The reason was because Ryan and I catered the wedding dinner!!

After the reception the bride and groom hosted a dinner for their out of town guests. I'm guessing we served about 50 people, and it was all chinese food. This was Ryan's specialty and was a no brainer for Kendra when we offered our services when she got engaged. She gladly accepted our culinary expertise and asked if we could make Chinese food.

The menu included: friend wontons, egg rolls, dumplings, corn soup, white rice, beef and broccoli, sweet and sour pork, and dragon and phoenix. The last dish was a tradition wedding dish which normally consists of lobster and duck, for this occasion it was shrimp and chicken and represents the bride and groom.

There were also fortune cookies, candies, and tangerines.

It was a great day, and I think Ryan and I were very successful. It made us think we could really rock out a diner business.

I wish I had pictures, but I was occupied with other tasks. If something surfaces, I will post some for you to see.

I am soooo glad that you are blogging again - I have really missed reading your entries. I will continue to keep you in my prayers and also keep a watchful eye out for any helpful information about fibromyalgia. One thing I suggest is to surround yourself with people and things that will make you laugh. You need to have some happy times to lift your soul. Hugs, Penny
