Alisa. 37. New Hampshire. Married for almost three years to this wonderful, funny, smart guy. Previously married. Went through in-vitro fertilization to have my five year old magical son Keegan. Stepmother to the charming Isabelle (6). Gushingly in love with our baby boy Harper(1). Policy Wonk and dreaded bureaucrat. Lover of fine cuisine, honeybees, truly romantic moments and the underdog.
Curried Beef Short Ribs

Finishing this dish with lime zest and juice brightens its rich flavors.

Yield 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces ribs, 2/3 cup rice, and about 2 1/2 tablespoons sauce)

To answer Becki's questions:

How about, the schedule for the wedding?
The wedding ceremony is Oct 22 in St. Croix. We will honeymoon there the rest of the week. We will stay somewhere really luxurious for the few days afterwards so we can get massages, room service, etc. Basically not have to leave the room if we don't want to. We will spend the rest of the week at the villa we rented for the ceremony.
In Nov. we will have a party here in New Hampshire to celebrate with all of the people who can't be in St. Croix. That is being held at a beautiful inn and will be an afternoon party with the kids there too. We plan to show the video of our vows and the photos from the island. I can share the menu after we make the selections this Sat. The cakes are coming from the bakery where we had our second date.

What will you being doing a couple days before, the day before, do you have a list of events leading up?
We arrive in St. Croix the Friday before to pickup the marriage license. It's a US Virgin Island so that isn't too complicated. The wedding planner will have done all of the preliminary stuff for us. The day before we will probably go snorkeling and hangout with the wedding guests. Because it is so small we don't have details to run around and cover. I will have my hair done and it will be based on a style my stylist up here is doing for me. The ceremony will take place Sun evening and we will have it on the beach. Afterwards we will have cake and champagne. When the photos are finished we are taking everyone out to a nice restaurant (perhaps here) and there will be live music there as well.
