typical to these evenings is the "captain" talking us through all that is going to take place, the timing, and who's on what kind of detail. todd was the captain saturday night and began taking us through the evening. 6:15 - start serving drinks to early guests. 7:00 - help seat the guests. 7:15 - ceremony begins. 7:30 - ceremony ends, groom steps on and breaks the glass with a hearty "la' chaim!" 7:31 - serve more drinks and clean up empty glasses (there were many). 7:32 - serve appetizers. 8:30 - put the little cheeseburgers on the buffet table... at this point i became confused and perhaps you can see why. it's just not kosher, but i was told that the wedding was only half jewish. i guess that made it alright.
the important thing, and the nice thing about working for this company, is that i can count on great food to eat when the time comes. there's a magic moment when the captain gives you a nod and says, "take a break and eat some food." mmmmmmmmmm...i couldn't have prepared any of this stuff even with all kinds of time to try. i would have made nachos or something. this was gourmet with little sauces and finger foods...and even vegetables. i don't mind the vegetables, really. when they're prepared, i'll eat 'em.
i should eat well this week. that's a good thing. i'm thanking god for provision.
