Wedding Food: MGM Grand in Las Vegas
March? Really? It's been 7-8 months since the last update? Whoa.
Well, The Saucy Coconut has been quite busy, as this post will prove. Yes, there was a wedding, and the reception was catered by MGM Grand Las Vegas in the Skylofts. I married Mr. Coconut in July, and the ceremony was great. Most importantly to this blog, there was great food. We had a chips and salsa station which also doubled as a taco station, a "build your own pita/falafel" station, lots of fruit and vegetables and some of the TASTIEST vegan cake EVER.
Pictured above: fruit kabobs with pineapple, melons, and strawberries.
Next: Vegetable "trays". If you're a vegetarian, chances are you've ended up at more than one buffet where there are only vegetable or fruit trays to choose from. While my wedding did have vegetables, I LOVED the way they were presented, such as the fruit kabobs above or the standing holders of vegetables below.

Grilled Vegetable Kabobs:
These have patty pan squash, artichokes, tomato and mushrooms. Hummus for dipping.

An unimpressive picture of the most impressive cake I've ever had:

While in Las Vegas, we also visited Yellowtail inside Belaggio and Chin Chin inside NYNY. Next post I'll feature the food had on the honeymoon in Kauai, Hawaii.
