When two people come together and decide they are going to spend the rest of their lives together, it only seems natural to have a dinner party to bring the families together. This particular dinner party went beautifully. The families got along famously, the food was delicious, and the couple beamed all night.
So just who is the lucky-in-love couple?
I'll give you a clue.
Half of the couple involves M, who you've heard so much about on this blog over the last year or so.
The other half is...
ME! That's right, readers! That gorgeous ring you saw in the picture of above sits on MY finger. EEEEEEE!!! How in the world did I get so lucky?
I can't believe I'll soon get to call this wonderful man, who proposed to me with the sweetest words under an oak tree at the oldest vineyard in Napa, my husband.
Sigh. I am so blessed.
And with that news, readers, you can bet I'll be stepping up the healthy recipes on this blog. I mean, I've got to get in the best shape of my life so I'll look perfect on the best day of my life. There will still be sweet treats. Don't worry about that. It's just that I'll have to save a small portion for M and I and send the rest to work with one of us. Seems like a fair trade :-) For now, I leave you with the menu from our engagement dinner. I'll be posting these recipes over the next few days.
Pink Lady apple slices
assortment of crackers
green salad with M's favorite lemon vinaigrette
King Estate Signature Pinot Gris (from M's home state)
Dessert:Whitehall Lane Belmuscato (purchased the day M and I got engaged)
