Yesterday and this morning I was busy preparing the dessert bar for a baby shower we were having for a friend. V hosted at her house in San Francisco. I tried to make pink desserts since the new baby is a girl.
Strawberry Green Tea Madeleines (made with strawberry flavored green tea powder)
Lemon Curd Thumbprints
Sea Salt Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (made with pink M&Ms). Recipe here.
Neopolitan Mochi Bundt Cakes (made with mochiko rice flour for that chew, recipe here.)
Rice Krispy Treats tinted pink.
Plum cake. Recipe here.
Strawberry cupcakes with lemon marscapone frosting. (Made with Betty Crocker stawberry cake mix and recipe here for frosting.)
We didn’t just have desserts, the rest of the lovely brunch was made by the other guests. We had blueberry waffles, scrambled eggs, chicken apple sausage, bacon, and scones.
After our delicious brunch, we just hung out until the kids got tired. Simon enjoyed playing with the balloons.
Simon has been learning lots of new words, including “shovel”.
After we left San Francisco, we went to Lowe’s to buy some flowers for our front yard. Simon really likes water features so looks like we’ll be setting one up in our front or backyard for him at some point.
Before we went home, we picked up this train table that Ron found on Craigslist. We put it together while Simon was sleeping. We will have to wait and see if he likes it when he wakes up in the morning.
