I'm a bad blogger

And I'm so very sorry!!!! I really haven't had any wedding planning to blog about, and I honestly haven't had any time to do so with my new job. But don't you worry, within the next few weeks I will be blogging about choosing a reception site (we have it narrowed down to 3: snow hill manor, glen echo, and the comus inn) and going dress shopping -- so there is definitely more to come!

For now, I have been playing around with menus while looking at caterers websites. Today I was looking at R&R Catering and created my own menu combining their Tex Mex and Upscale BBQ menus, since I am Caucasian and my fiance is Spanish. Here is what I came up with tentatively, and I think it sounds soooooooooooooooooo good!!! What do you think??

Nine layer dip w/chips
Shrimp, mango and papaya skewers
Texas BBQ meatballs
Garden Veggie display

Salmon burgers w/wasabi mayo and ginger
Grilled rib eye steaks w/chile lime tequila compound butter
Black bean and plantain enchiladas w/queso fresco
Chicken fajitas

Upscale macaroni and cheese bar
Aztec grilled corn station

Asparagus and roasted pepper caesar salad
Southwest pasta salad

Parsley and chive mashed red potatoes
Southern green beans w/bacon
Spanish rice
Chipotle whipped sweet potatoes

Creme Brulee
Ice cream sundae bar
Wedding Cake

Red and white sangria
Alabama Sweet Tea
Various beers and wines
Soft Drinks

I'm using R&R Catering as well. So far everything has been great. One thing to keep in mind if you're on a budget, is that even though the pricing they have for food is really good you still will need to factor in the cost for servers, bartendars, linens/dishes (assuming your site doesn't provide those) etc. I found that the actual food cost is low it's everything else that adds up. Good Luck!

those menu items look amazing! looks like a Ton of food.

I agree with SG, watch out for the "everything else." You're probably already on top of this, but just make sure they give you all of those extra costs up front (even if it seems like they're showing you everything, you'll want to make sure and ask about delivery fees or anything else that will be tacked on). When I was hunting for a caterer it was like pulling teeth getting that information.
