My Big Fat Greek Wedding Feast
So my 35 year old son finally decided to take the plunge and get married, but to a Greek woman! Doesn't realize that we are Italian? Oh well. So since this was going to be a big Greek wedding, we decided to invite my son's favorite character from the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding
. And Surprise! Surprise! He decided to come! Now, like I mentioned, my son is 35. He is also 6' 5" and not afraid to admit he loves the boy band, *NSYNC. This is Peter:
So, we invited Joey Fatone, who played Angelo. In the movie he plays the comical cousin who comes out as gay in the sequel. That is a really, really short bio, but I haven't seen the second movie - don't you dare
tell him! We also invited him because he can actually dance. I did see him on Dancing with the Stars
, did you?
One of my favorite scenes from the movie included this quote:
Nick Portokalos: Listen, you know. I really think you should say, "Eho tria orchidea.
" It means, everyone, let's come in the house. I think everybody will really like it.
Ian Miller: [mispronouncing] Eho tria orchidea?
Nick Portokalos: Yeah! That's good! Very good! You got it!
Ian Miller: I'm not falling for that again, Nick.
Nick Portokalos: What?
Ian Miller: Yeah, what. Angelo? How do you say, "Everyone, let's go into the house?"Angelo: Eho tria orchidea!
Nick Portokalos: Hum?
Ian Miller: Everyone! Eho tria orchidea!

Did anyone catch the theme? My future daughter-in-law wanted a big, fat white wedding, well, I gave her a big, fat, white menu! Did you figure out which recipe I made? It was the cauliflower. I also made the pork, but not for this challenge. And one more thing. Doesn't the ice cream look like a bunny?
