Sorry. Way off track there. Let's talk about my most favourite newlyweds.
|And here they are, the new Mrs. Kimmi and Mr. Seanno!|
|At the rehearsal dinner, which was held at Aroma, a Portuguese restaurant just a few blocks from my old apartment. This was some delicious chicken, with a hint of the piri piri pepper that seems so central to Portuguese cooking.|

Next up, the food on The Big Day!
|Sweet potato soup, with the delicious white wine, my bridesmaid flowers, and a DJ in the background. I'd never had a soup made with sweet potato before, but it was fantastic... and very much in keeping with the sunset-hued fall colour scheme of the wedding. The only downside? We ladies all stuck our napkins in our necklines to prevent drops of this scrumptious concoction from splashing on our fancy dresses. I'm considering trying out this recipe to see if I can recreate the experience, since I doubt that The Delta London Armouries is willing to give out theirs.|
|Dessert #1. Fresh strawberries atop chocolate and vanilla mousse, held in a caramelized sugar tuille of sorts, which was cemented to the plate with dark chocolate. Oh, my. Yes, please, and thank you.|
Looking forward to the continuation of feasting as we get closer to Christmas,
