As for me, well, unfortunately I have to work on Saturday afternoon. So there will be no relaxation time for me while the gals are away having their fun. That theme will hold true even after I come home from work. Provided Mallorey, her mom and sister are back home by the evening hours, I intend to make them dinner. The menu: grilled salmon with some type of sauce or glaze (undecided yet), a vegetable and Derby Pie for dessert. The salmon should be fairly easy to prepare as I've grilled up this dish before but without any sauce/glaze. I'm sure foodnetwork.com or some of our home cook books have some great recipes. A complimentary side veggie will be the simplest part of the dinner. I might even attempt a salad. But then again that might be too much food. Just depends on how hungry everyone is I suppose. Now seeing as how Janann and Marin are travelling down from Chicago to stay with us for the weekend, and I've heard how Marin loves Kentucky so much :) - I thought it would be a great idea to deliver some sweet and rich flavor for the occasion: the Derby Pie. I'm sure there will be plenty left over so they can take some back to Mallorey's dad. No one appreciates good cooking like him. It never hurts to try and impress the future father-in-law!
I'm confident Mallorey and I can get the house cleaned up for this weekend after our recent interior remodeling sessions. She is the most important person in my life and I want this weekend as well as her Louisville bridal shower to be just as entertaining and fun as the one she was thrown in Chicago about 7 weeks ago. Time is flying and she and I will be married in 3 1/2 weeks and I couldn't be more excited to know I will be committing the rest of my life with the greatest woman I've ever known!
(I know I will get some "you're a softee" comments for this post, but I don't really care! Ha ha)
Love you Mallorey,
