Royal Wedding Menu

"Love is a smoke made with the fume of sighs. Being purged, a fire sparkling in lovers' eyes. Being vexed, a sea nourished with lovers' tears. What is it else? A madness most discreet, a choking gall and a preserving sweet." - Shakespeare

"Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love." - Charlie Brown

And so, Prince William and Kate Middleton are about to be married. On this day, single girls and women over 13 and (hopefully) under 35 will mark the Royal Nuptials with the aid of Kleenex, Haagen dazs (or Ben & Jerry's), and chocolate (and maybe even by pinning a photo of Kate to a wall and practicing their dart-throwing). If anyone reading this meets the above criteria, and this sounds like your plans for celebrating the marriage of Prince William, I recommend Godiva for the chocolate part of your festivities. 

For those of you planning to watch the Royal Wedding in a positive frame of mind, and who are looking for ideas for appropriate snacks, here is my suggested menu for the day:
  • Tea (I recommend Yorkshire Gold) in a pretty teapot with pretty teacups, with sugar and cream on the side, if you so wish.
  • My recipe for Tea Scones from a previous post. Serve with clotted cream and your favorite fruit preserves (or marmalade).
  • My recipe for Cucumber Sandwiches from another previous post. Cut the crusts off the bread for an added touch of elegance.
  • If you can find a nearby retailer that carries them, these delicious, raisin-filled biscuits

God bless the bride!
