It’s only been a couple of weeks, but it feels like an age ago that we got married. I meant to post this last Friday but life and the post wedding blues got in the way.
When it came to food for our wedding, we needed to keep it fairly simple as we had some fussier eaters in attendance, including my mum who generally sticks to British food (think pub classics). However, Ed was also keen to keep some of the traditional Greek dishes in the menu.
I tried to compromise by mixing the menu up a little and this is what we ended up with…
Beef Meatballs with a Yoghurt & Mint Sauce
Sausages rolled with Bacon
Chicken Nuggets with a Mustard Dressing
Selection of Breads served with Olive Oil and Olives and a Tomato Pesto to accompany
Feta Cheese baked with Tomato and Pepper
Chicken Fillet with Tomato sauce baked in the oven
Pork Steak with Mustard Sauce & Orange
Stuffed Tomatoes & Peppers (with Rice & Herbs)
Oven baked Potatoes
Mixed Vegetables in the oven
Fresh Fruit Salad, followed by our Wedding Cake
Bar the cold appetiser (the olive oil and pesto never materialised so we basically ate dry bread and olives), and the fruit salad (which arrived after everyone was up dancing)…it was all really well received and I particularly liked the main course (I had the chicken).
The canapés were a lot bigger than they are in England, and although I only had one of each, I was feeling fairly full by the time we sat down to eat our meal!
