I'm still dreaming of the Salisbury Steak and mashed potatoes I made for dinner last night. Do you know my family eats 3 lbs. of ground beef and 5 lbs. of potatoes for ONE MEAL? And I only have two teenagers! The chilly weather is finally upon us which means cooking those big comfort meals is back in style. Summer can be so judgey when I try to make meatballs and marinara and beef barley soup, but not winter. Oh no, winter's like the perfect combination of huggable grandmother and stretchy sweatpants that just makes you want to sit down, enjoy a nice meal, and add body layers for warmth to get you through until judgey summer comes back again asking you what happened?!?!
Speaking of good food, this past weekend we went to a wedding, which I was VERY VERY excited for and it did not disappoint! We were running late to the wedding and had to do the walk of shame from the front door of the church to our pew because we couldn't get in the back entrance where the whole wedding party was all lined up and waiting. Fashionably late is still a thing, yes? The Nuptial Mass was beautiful, so extra Catholic in the songs, homily, and little teachings in the booklet. The reception was so much fun! They had a macaroni and cheese bar, where you got served mac n cheese in a martini glass and then added toppings of your choice. I made mine buffalo chicken mac n cheese and Phil was all about the bacon! Dinner was delicious, I had chicken, Phil had prime rib, and the dance floor was rocking all night. They had wedding cake and a sundae bar for dessert! I have so many funny/happy memories from the night:
