We hope we don’t sound prehistoric when we say that this ceremony and reception, which took place at the Field Museum on May 24, 2014, was absolutely dino-mite!

Let’s go back in time, shall we?

Field Museum Picnic

What a perfect day for a museum picnic! Today we were tickled to be invited to Food For Thought’s Picnic at The Field Museum. All done on the terrace, we were wined and dined with an amazing menu of Pomegranate Glazed Poussin, Grilled Soft Shell Crab, Grilled Pork Belly, Roasted Veggie Ratatouille, and for dessert: Peach Cobbler, Cherry Clafouts, and FFT Churros.  Picture 11 Picture 12

Picture 14The apple and berry pie to-go were delish!

It was a gorgeous way to spend a Thursday afternoon in the sun!

With love by Alyssa.
