Last week we had a ball catering the wedding of Monica and JR, a really fun couple who sure do know how to throw a party. Not only was the bride beautiful, but her cake was, as well. Check it out!
O.K., maybe this should be called BEEF with a few noodles. Our intent was to share a nice Sesame Noodle recipe, but we got such a good deal on London Broil that we got carried away and the noodles were kind of lost in the shuffle.
It's a really fun dish and it serves well with fish, chicken, pork or garden fresh vegetables. It's easy to make and really inexpensive.

Had a nice afternoon in Kingston, RI. The folks at URI sure know how to have fun.
We had a wonderful visit with Susan and some of the folks at Linden Place in Bristol, RI, while doing a walk-through for an upcoming wedding. You can tell they've been kept quite busy over the winter with projects and the mansion and grounds have never looked prettier. And the fact that there is no sign of snow and the magnolias are in bloom only makes it that much more beautiful.
A perfect setting for a wedding, rehearsal or really any social occasion, the staff has also put together an events schedule that includes something for everyone. From the "It might as well be Spring" concert, and the opening of the visitors season with Family Day with the History Kids, the events keep coming.
Spending a quiet week in the Caribbean. A lobster sure can work up a thirst with all this shopping!
