We’ve had a great thread going where newbees have been welcomed to the site… but that thread has gotten long, and I don’t think some of the Veteran Bees always check it. So we thought that starting a weekly welcome thread might do the trick!
We’d love to meet you newbees and learn something new about the oldbees. So please introduce (or re-introduce) yourself here. I hope to see lots of frequent posters participating as well! I’ll give a topic so that we can learn something new about you each week.
This week’s question: If you could have an endless supply of just one food, what would it be and why?
I can start. I’m Mrs. DG. I’ve been here for a year, and recently got married in a whimsical, eclectic, vintage inspired rustic mountain wedding… Mr. DG and I have known each other for 7 years. He asked me out for 3 years, and I kept saying “no”. But we finally figured it all out 4 years ago, and have been so happy together ever since!
My endless supply food would have to be buffalo wings. Not only are they a favorite (perfect for any meal), but they also contain capsaicin, which sometimes cures migranes for me. So I’d love to have an endless supply of fresh out of the fryer buffalo wings. I’d just also need a home gym to counteract the mega-weight gain I’d experience!

I’m mechiebaby, I’ve been around for a few months, but only engaged for about one! *blush* We’re getting married in Malaysia, which is where his family is from, in a Hindu ceremony, which simultaneously excites me / scares me since I am so clueless 🙂
Bread. I love bread. If I go to a new restaurant and they have a bread basket they automatically get an A from me (unless its stale!). I sometimes just eat pieces of bread (not toasted, no butter or anything) for breakfast 🙂

I’m tessabella76. I’ve been here for about 6 months, about 2 weeks before I got engaged. We are planning a simple, vintage, family-friendly wedding is less than 3 weeks.
My endless supply of food would be ice cream. The first 4 months my fiance and I were dating, we ate ice cream every night I was at his house (which was 3 or 4 nights a week!). Needless to say, our waistlines starting growing so we’ve cut back to once a week!

Mechie- That sounds like a challenge! Hopefully you are able to enlist his family in Malaysia to help with the planning 🙂
and Tessabella- isn’t it funny how much easier it is to over-indulge when you are happily in love? 🙂

DG-Exactly! You don’t even think about what your eating!

Hi! I’m SanDiegoAli. I’ve been around here for 10 or so months, a lot of that time was lurking though, as we didn’t officially get engaged until February of this year. We’re planning a small, low-key garden wedding in on of the locations in Balboa Park here in San Diego. I’m an “encore” and so is my groom.
My endless food supply would probably be my mom’s homemade chicken soup – yum!!

I’m budgetbeautiful. I’ve been a registered user at WB for about a year, but I’ve been lurking on the site since April, 2008.
My endless supply food would be ice cream. I don’t think I could ever tire of it! Thank GOD for low fat 100 calorie ice cream or I think I’d go nuts in the final weeks leading up to my wedding, I need my fix!

Hi! I’m OttawaBride, I’ve been around for just about a month or so! I “lurked” here for about a week before I got engaged. My boy and I both just graduated university this year and are fortunate to be working full time jobs. We moved in together about 3 months ago, and have been together about 2.5 years.
We’re planning a small intimate affair (50-60 guests) in my FI’s hometown (where we now live). We’re having a long engagement because the boy is busy working on getting his CA – which is called something else in the US… ah, CPA to you Americans 🙂

Hello all, I’m hcritton. I officially joined weddingbee in April though I was snooping around the site for several weeks before that. I’ve been engaged since March and my wedding is in 13 days!!!!!! We’re getting married in Vegas and than having the reception here in Seattle the following week. I owe a lot to weddingbee because the site and the bees have truly been an inspiration to my planning and projects.
My endless food supply would be Mexican food. I could probably eat it every day now as it is. I love tacos, tamales, enchiladas, nachos…. so yummy! I want some now just talking about it!

Hello all! I’m Minutiae (“Minoosha,” meaning little details) and I recently discovered Weddingbee in my pre-engagment-but-it’s-inevitable-at-this-point-so-I-better-start-doing-my-research-during-the-summer-so-I’m-not-distracted-from-college frenzy! …Got that? Aaaanyhow, my SO and I have been together for about ten months and a century, and I’m planning on a budget-friendly spring wedding in my home church with a backyard reception. I’m hoping for an emerald engagment ring, a short engagment, and a long honeymoon in Ireland. 🙂
If I could have any endless supply of just one food, it would have to be…chocolate. Standard. Classic. Fattening. Yummy.
No, wait! Chocolate marshmallow ice cream. Mmmmmmm. Best ice cream flavor ever.
No, no, banana bread! There’s nothing more delicious than a fresh loaf of savory banana bread.
Wait! My grandmother’s brown sugar rolls! They’re to die for, seriously.
Then again…yup…it has to be blueberries. Nothing beats fresh blueberries!

I am Mrs. Starfish… I have been on here about 2 months. It only took me one day of snooping around the site to decide I HAD to join WB. I am getting married next March & impatiently counting down the days although recently i have been a planning slacker.
My food would be… frozen rasberries. They never go bad and I can eat them while watching tv instead of chips and not feel guilty!

Minutiae- you are cracking me up!
I seriously considered putting buffalo wings and pretzel flips on as my endless supply foods, but stayed strong and kept it to one. Now you are making me wish I expanded my list!

Hi! I’m MissOMally. I’ve been playing around on Weddingbee for about 5 months and I finally got married last month. We had a small (60 people) destination wedding on a private ranch in Jackson Hole, WY. And now I’m thoroughly enjoying being a newlywed!
@ Minutiae – My favorite ice cream is chocolate marshmallow too!! Only I have a hard time finding it anywhere…
