Can you help us bless our wedding dinner?

Can you help us find the transcript of a blessing or poem from Praire Home Companion? Either that, or some other suitable grace for a Catholic/atheist/multifaith wedding blessing before dinner.

Teradude and I are working out the final details of our wedding and reception, and we're looking for a blessing to say before dinner is served. We'll have a good mix of Catholics, Protestants, Jews and atheists, so we'd like something that's not too "churchy" but also expresses our thanks for all the good things in our lives. Any suggestions?
Teradude mentioned a blessing or poem he heard from Garrison Keillor on Prairie Home Companion a couple years ago (perhaps around thanksgiving time) that might just fit the bill. He can't remember all of it, but it ended with something along the lines of "...this happy condition, gratitude" Does this ring a bell with anyone, and if so, can you point us to where we can find the full text, or a recording?
Otherwise, we'd welcome other suggestions for a brief blessing to say before dinner. Thanks!
