If I could make my perfect menu….2

If I could make my perfect menu….2
you may have seen this post under the title of my 21st menu – so my 21st came and and for some unknown reason I didn’t manage to find anyone who wanted to foot the bill for me to create this menu. I decided the next feasible opportunity for this menu is my wedding – so for my future husband (if you are reading this whoever you may be) we are blowing are entire budget on the food, I’ll wear jeans.
