My wife and I attended a wedding yesterday, well actually just the reception, we had car troubles at the airport and arrived too late for the actual ceremony. A spinach salad with strawberries, bacon, and other goodies was a part of the food provided. It was tasty, though the dressing was a tad too sweet for me.
But the main thing about the salad was that the spinach leaves were all whole and were all BIG. On the order of 2 - 3 inches, bigger than the size of a credit card, on the order of maybe 2/3rds of a dollar bill. It was sad to see so many of the guests using their little plastic forks to try and wrangle these sheets of spinach into their mouths without slopping dressing all over their wedding clothes.
The groom's mother, knowing my affinity for food ( I did the mashed patoots and gravy for Thanksgiving at their house last year ) asked me what I thought of the catering, but I thought better of complaining about the awkward salad.
You'd think that folks who cater weddings would have a better grasp of such things. Of course, the plastic forks tell a tale as well.
ps: The little cream puffs with the chocolate drizzles were, uh, well, let's just say I probably ate more than my share ;-)
