Holy Matrimoly, Batman, It’s Wedding Week!

cold, raw tofu in nori
New York has Fashion Week. College campuses have Greek Week. Hollywood has Oscar Week and Emmy Week. Here at The Delicious Life, there is that much anticipated seven days filled with itty bitty chiffon bows, tulle, shimmer glimmer papier-maché floral fantasy, tangerine taffeta and orange-peach organza…It’s Wedding Week!

Yes, stargazers, we obligingly shrieked through the proposal. We smiled through the engagement. We even survived the first meeting of the parents. Now, what everyone has been awaiting for months on the edge of their g*ddamn garters. Seven glorious days and nights, maybe even more if we’re lucky, of pure white wedding preparation wonderment, all leading up to that final moment. Building up to that breathless climax . That incredible, ecstatic peak when I..Oh! Ohmigod! I…Yes!

I get to eat.

how many ways to dress up raw tofu? not many

But up until then, up until the last guests set out on their merry way from the rose-petal strewn, white-tableclothed, floating votive candled reception, and I finlly get to shimmy out of that ridiculous dress, I am not eating. My body is simply subsisting on…saeng doo boo. Cold, raw tofu.

I love tofu in any format. I love saeng doo boo, rolled up in a piece of nori, and dipped in soysauce mixed with a little sriracha for a spicy kick. But let me tell you, even a New York Strip grilled bloody rare and dripping with blue cheese butter three times a day, every day, for a week can start to taste like…Salisbury steak.

Let the countdown begin. *sigh*

Congratulations, Sarah! And good luck with the tofu. At least it’s only a week.

i have wedding week next week.
and even though, like you, i am a bridesmaid, i just haven’t bothered with the dieting.
but they have put me in charge of food coordination on the big day. that means i get to go to the kitchen and tell the caterer when to bring out the food.
(of course i have to try it all first to make sure its ok, don’t I??)

Of course. Checking for food poisoning, and all that. Have to watch out for the safety of the bride and groom!

aw, thanks nic! i’m so proud to be finally getting rid of my sister, lol! ;) (thank goodness it’s not my wedding!)

sam: i wouldn’t have bothered with this ridiculous temporary lifestyle change if it weren’t for the fact that the dress was too small to begin with, lol! and yes, like you, i was the food captain for all nuptial activities, which was the ONLY way i could survive this whole thing. :)

Why don’t you try making some of the regular salads like Chinese Chicken Salad, Cobb, or even Tuna Nicoise, but substitute tofu for the meat? The at least you have the flavor component of the dressing and other salad ingredients!

You know, most people censor “g*ddamn” by putting an asterisk in the “damn” part, not the “g*d” part. haha!
