One of the tasks on my list that I've been putting off until closer to the wedding was choosing the final menu. Maybe fate somehow had this in its hands, because Maggiano's just updated their menu offerings, which would have negated all the hard, hard work it would have taken to choose between an omelet or a scramble :)

Upon reading the updated menu, I am once again so glad we're having the reception at Maggiano's! One thing I had stated from the beginning of this process was that I did not want to pay $60 a person for dry chicken. Tom is not a picky person, yet we somehow end up in the McDonald's drive-thru after several weddings because neither one of us could eat the chicken. I think Maggiano's offers the best of both worlds -- affordability (surprisingly) and FANTASTIC food!

Our package includes:
  • Assortment of muffins
  • Sliced seasonal fruit
  • Croissants, Assorted Jams & Butter
  • Fresh Baked Zucchini Bread
  • Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake
  • Assorted Fruit Juices
  • Regular & Decaffeinated coffee
  • Assortment of Hot Teas
  • Fran's Potatoes with Roasted Peppers & Onions

Along with a choice from one of each bullet:

  • Scrambled Eggs, Italian Sausage & Bacon Frittata, or Spinach & Tomato Frittata
  • Cheese Crispelles, Apple Crispelles, or Cinnamon French Toast with Caramelized Bananas
  • Italian Sausage or Bacon

Because a few people attending are vegetarian and one of my coworkers is Muslim (no pork products), I'm leaning towards choosing the Spinach & Tomato Frittata, and then those who want meat can enjoy the bacon. Also, I LOVE almost anything banana, and I love me some french toast, so I think that's what we'll go with in the middle category.

I do have to run it all past Tom, but I'm pretty sure he'll just shrug his shoulders and say, "Whatever. I eat anything."

So, what do you think? Put your votes in now, or forever hold your peace! :)

*normally I detest Rachael Ray, but in this case, this was the only clever title that I could come up with.

i would choose the sausage and bacon frittata, and the other two I agree with you on. That's my vote!

I agree with Bec. it would be nice to accomodate everyone, but this works for the majority. meat fritta, french toast for thoses you cannot partake, and then suasage. . .plus you will have the wonderful other choices like zucchini bread!
