THE TASTING!

This past Monday we took an important step in becoming bride and groom - husband and wife. We are one important step closer to this union.
Getting our wedding license? No
Finishing marriage counseling? Nope
Picking up rings? Nada

THE WEDDING FOOD TASTING!
That's right, Monday evening we went to the Westin to complete our food tasting and let me tell you it was fabulous. First, they treat you like royalty. You feel like you are hosting a $10 million event at their venue (although it is close) and that you are one step away from Barak Obama. They had our names posted in the hotel, we entered into a perfectly set room with red, white and champagne glasses. Appetizers awaited our entrance. It was perfect.

In the spirit of holding nothing back...except for the bride and groom's surprise entree...let me entice you.
We started with ahi tuna spooney thingies that were a little spicy and a lot delicious. We then tried Cesar and another type of salad inside Parmesan cups (amazing!). Finally, we tried the mini beef Wellington's. Which, clearly, due to my employer - we had to have - but they were also phenomenal!!!

We moved on to appetizer/salad. Now when you go to a wedding or any other event, you always start out with the same boring soup or blah salad. Therefore, we said we'd try the salads but really wanted something different, more of a starter rather than soup or salad. Salad was fine, but we were right - the 'starter' is much better. And, dinner will be late, so there will be something there when you sit down that will be more substantial, and delicious if I do say so myself. So...no salad - starter instead! I like to break rules.

Dinner....the fillet with mashed potatoes and asparagus is awesome, the vegetarian roasted red pepper pasta is outstanding, and the bride and groom's choice is just PERFECT! You will love it! If you're nervous to order it, I promise, it is something the vast majority of people will LOVE.

We also tasted the various wines, which will not disappoint. I hope it is as good as it was for the tasting, no promises, but I have high hopes. The wait staff is awesome, I wanted to take the head wait person home with me - she was just adorable!

Now that's what I'm talkin about...now we're ready to get married!

FOOD - CHECK!
