Preparing to Be a Bridesmaid


3 comments

I'm a "no fuss"girl so doing this was fun.  My friend convinced her husband that she needed to go with me since I didn't know the nail tech and they did.  She was able then to get the "Barbie" nails.

What does the food have to do with it?  After these services, we were fed these wonderful Colombian foods.  Yes, we were at the home of the nail tech, who is Colombian, and my friend's husband took the directions on how to prepare these foods while we were getting our nails done.  I think he did a good job and now I have a few more recipes to attempt.  :-)

So what did she serve?  Eggs over easy (it was my first time eating eggs cooked this way), rice cooked with garlic, and a vegetable salad - squash, zucchini, tomatoes, onions, grapes served with a dressing she prepared last.  The dressing was a combination of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper, and Dijon mustard.  It was so fresh and so good!

  1. Go go bridesmaid! What a fancy pedicure you got.
    What are eggs over easy? Half-cooked eggs? Never tried Colombian food before. I am a food ignoramus. ;-)

  2. @ Alhana: The "French manicure/pedicure" is probably all I can handle. It would be a rare day to see me in more than this. LOL

    About the eggs over easy: All I can say is that the yolk is not fully set. If you fry them hard they are not runny one bit. She put butter in the pan, cracked two eggs in there, let them fry a little then placed a top on the pan to steam them some and finally slide the eggs over the rice. It was a first for me. It was good.

    About the Colombian food, I have only tried Colombian food once before. It just fascinates me how people can have a very similar culture but the food is prepared in different ways, down to the rice. I don't know what culture created cooking eggs this way but I know it's popular in many places.
