Because a) I'm so excited to see him for the first time in two weeks I am actually bouncing in my chair (and squealing), b) he's so sweet to drive all the way down to be my human pillow and c) he will maintain the ability to masticate solid foods, I have stocked up on two things that are near and dear to his heart:
I'm going to try this rhubarb bread pudding recipe. The very name of this recipe elicited the same response from both Harry and my Dad-- wide eyes, a dropped jaw, and a lot of rapid nodding.
In case you're curious, here's the recipe!
8 slices bread without crusts, toasted and
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 1/4 cups white sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups diced rhubarb
1/4 cup chopped walnuts
1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Some say it was staged, others say it's totally convincing. Either way, it makes me even more grateful that I'm NOT getting married by a swimming pool.
And just since this wedding video makes me (and everyone else who's ever seen it in my presence) CRINGE, here's one to take the edge off.

The wedding cake comprised of Hostess Ding Dongs
The bridesmaid dresses rented from nearby Ballroom Dance studio.
There you have it. You can all count on those things NOT being a part of the big day. So rest at ease.
I may however hide something special in the wedding cake. But not shrapnel. Something classy, like a kazoo or a G.I. Joe.
