Finding photographers you ask? Shouldn't that have been one of the first things on a wedding list? Wouldn't the majority of photographers already have the day booked being that it's the long weekend?
You are all correct.
Our lovely photographers that we had pencilled in six months ago decided with six weeks to go, that they are no longer going to "do" photography. What makes matters worse was that they had decided this months ago, and had claimed they had "tried to get hold of us". Even with both our phone numbers and e-mails written down on paper and in their phones, neither the fiance nor I, heard a peep.
To make matters worse, the pair of them decided to attempt several poor excuses as for their decision instead of simply apologizing and giving an honest answer. Even when confronted, the dysfunctional duo had no excuses or reasons for their departure.
It goes without saying that the fiance was not happy. Woe to the soul that gets in the way of a bride-to-be I say!
Luckily we have managed to find some photographers that are open for the day, I guess we just have to hope that they turn out, because we have few options now.
And to the pair of paparazzo, I extend a finger in your general direction. And no, it definitely wasn't my thumb.
So as you can imagine, we needed to unwind a bit. And after some liquid refreshments, I felt the need for some melted cheese. Does anything make you feel as good as some inebriation and melty goodness? This was actually a recipe I was eyeing for Cinco de Mayo, and I'm glad I didn't hold out until next year!
The cheese is actually goat queso from a local farm and was, in a word, amazing. I don't know how close it is to a normal queso though, but the recipe should work regardless. Sorry about the photo, but it was a late night snack and I choose not to wait for sunlight. Hunger comes first!
Oven Roasted Queso Fresco
Queso Cheese - approx 8 oz (mozzarella or romano could work as well) and a bit extra for topping
Salsa - 2 tbsps
Onion - 1/2 finely diced
Soft tortilla's, potato chips or crackers to serve.
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Cut the cheese into large slabs or slices and place in an ovenproof skillet. Spoon a little salsa over the top. Place in the oven and cook for about 10-20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and starting to golden. Top with the onion and some grated queso cheese.
Serve and eat immediately. If you wait too long, the cheese becomes cold and difficult to spoon out. You may want to have a small spoon to help with serving.
