Will You Marry Me?

Do you ever plan your dream wedding?

Really, I don’t need a big wedding affair that costs tons of money. Just as long as I’m with the man I love… oh, and as long as there’s chocolate involved.

And maybe some cute and festive Strawberry Shortcakes.

Vegan at a Wedding

One of the reasons weddings are on my mind is that my old college roomie just got married. It’s so weird, seeing my friends—people my age—getting married. Makes me feel like perhaps I should be thinking about marriage too… No, never mind! I’m still young. There’s plenty of time to be married! 🙂

As it turned out, the venue was well-equipped with vegan fare. Above is my first plate: balsamic portabella mushrooms and roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, and fresh fruit. I also had a plate with hummus and whole-wheat flatbread. And then another veggie dish. The asparagus and raspberries were so good!

Above, with my second veggie dish. This one also had jicama, which I finally learned to say correctly: it’s pronounced hi-ca-ma. Like hiccups!

What would be your dream proposal? Or, how did your significant other (or you) propose?

Mine: He writes out “Will you marry me” in chocolate syrup.

Or maybe he stuffs the ring inside a chocolate cupcake. Heck, forget the ring. I’ll just take the chocolate. What’s so great about diamonds anyway?

    I want manfriend to propose from the sidelines of one of my marathon races – with a big sign! Preferably after mile 20 when I’ll need a distraction from my body wanting me to die. Hah.

    Well, i am sorry, you are talking about “healthy and highly nutricional” recipes like all the time and you seem extremely underweight. You are only taking care about the low calorie part, and you really are not a very nice healthy example…

    My husband dressed my guinea pig up in a tuxedo (complete with top hat) and put the ring around his little arm. Surprised me with the pro-offered pig while I was in the middle of doing some work-related essay. I think I made him pose for a picture before I said yes.

    (Found this looking for your avocado-free guacamole which is also stellar.)

    How long will the cookie dough keep in the fridge? I made a VERY big batch to enjoy a chocolate-chip-cookie-dough-breakfast the next few days and if I can restrict myself not eat it all until tomorrow (which I highly doubt, though) how many days could I keep it?
