Making Do

My niece got married last week, which was the reason we returned to Ohio for a brief, wet and chilly stay. I called her to see if she needed anything done to help with the preparations the day before the wedding and was told I could help in the kitchen. Okay.

Friday morning (the day of the wedding) I called again to see what needed to be done that afternoon and my niece told me we needed to pick up the food, bring a wine bottle opener and OMG yes, she could use our grill. It seems that we were going to be preparing food for one hundred people on a single stove otherwise. Gulp. What followed after we arrived on site was chaotic, as the rental hall provided nothing in the way of pots, pans, cooking utensils or anything we needed. One of the groom's aunts shipped off her husband for some quick supplies, others had brought a cookie sheet or a pan so we started with what we had. Denny ended up cooking some of the chicken kiev on our little propane grill and later heated up frozen pans of macaroni and cheese on it. Folks, necessity was surely the mother of invention that day! With a lot of help from both sides of the soon-to-be-joined family, we got her done. It was a beautiful wedding, the bride and groom have no idea of the craziness that went on in the kitchen and the guests enjoyed both the wedding and meal. *Whew*

And aren't they just the cutest couple?

They are adorable!

Nice job on everyone pitching in and getting it done. It may have been hectic, but I bet it was a lot of fun! [Surprised Denny didn't go back and get the whole fifth wheel with your stove and micro :) kidding, kidding]
