The Hostess with the Leastest

My elder sister is getting married, remember? Well, last night was the rehearsal dinner. Eventually there will be pictures. But not now. Now I'm getting ready to host 30 out of town guests and bridal party members. Because you have to do something to fill up the time before the ceremony. So it will be lunch at Poppy's.

I'm not cooking for 30. I ordered lots of stuff from a local foodie supermarket. Like Couscous Salad with Cranberries, Walnuts, and Scallions with a blah-de-blah vinaigrette dressing.

But I have to make something, too. So I'm making Fran Drescher's Not Caesar Salad. And blackbird's summer dip.

Oh, and I found out my sister wants me to do the reading at the ceremony. Of course I said yes. "I always do the Bible reading at your weddings!" I exclaimed.

So OK, this is only the second marriage. WHATEVER. I thought it was funny.


  1. Nothing like having a family tradition!

  2. Sounds like fun! And your comment to your sister: HILARIOUS. My own sister probably would have murdered me on the spot, but those would have been great last words.

  3. That IS funny!! I'm going to remember that one :)
