My dear Wedding Jie-Meis, of course all of you had such perfectly valid reasons, I cannot be angry with you. But I wanted you to know how much loving effort I took to prepare the feast that you would have attended, if you had been able to make it. No, no, this isn't a guilt trip. Well...not really anyway.
There was other food catered from other sources, but I cooked all of the below:
Coleslaw - I chopped everything by hand, even the cranberries, so that the taste would be more even.
Shepherd's pie - see how beautifully crisp the top is.
Grilled wings. They came in two flavours - Italian and Chinese. I woke up at 7am just to marinate them.
Now you see it, now you don't. The boys lapped up everything :) I hadn't known that I'm such a good cook. Haha, but there is little likelihood of me repeating this feat. After slaving away in front of the oven the whole day, I came down with a fever. So I'm sorry to say that the next time, it would be good old potluck.
