June is a month for weddings…..at least that is what everyone is saying. Well, since I am running behind in my wedding posts, I am taking this opportunity to create a short post about a New Year’s Eve wedding I had a pleasure of attending.
I have attended a Christmas season wedding before, but this was my first time at a New Year’s Eve wedding.
It actually was a lot of fun, because until midnight we all were enjoying a typical wedding atmosphere, but as the clock struck midnight the party switched to a New Year celebration.
This was a very traditional Ukrainian wedding, with the Starosty (Elders…Godparents carrying the icons), the Korovai – a Symbolic Ukrainian Wedding Bread, Greeting Bread with salt and wine, lots of embroidered runners (rushnyky), special Icons for the Newlyweds, the Wedding Cake of course, and lots…lots…lots…of food at the Cocktail Hour and at midnight at the Venetian Hour.
This time I will even share pictures of the dress of the Bride, the Bride’s Maids and the Starostyna (Godmother carrying the Icon).
My sister shared pictures of her currently blooming flowers, some of her veggies and fruits. All these plants will look very familiar to you all, but they are growing in a well-tended garden by my sister, in Cracow , Poland
Today I will share a No Bake recipe for a Low Fat Jello Cheesecake, which is very simple to prepare, presents itself very nicely, and it tastes delicious.
Jello Cheesecake is much lighter than a traditional cheesecake, and to make it even lighter, you may use 1/3 less fat cream cheese, which I tested on one of the layers, and it held up as well as the regular cheese.
