I wanted to make something special for my best friend’s baby shower this past weekend. Her mom took care of most of the food, and since it was an afternoon event, the plan was to have appetizer-style bites – fruit, veggies, cheese, cocktail shrimp, little phyllo pastries, mini hot dogs, that sort of thing. There was also a beautiful bunny rabbit cake, along with baby-themed cookies. Since I was tasked with bringing some other sweet treats to share, I decided to make a dozen cupcakes and a dozen muffins.
Good morning on this lovely Monday! It’s the last day of August, but it’s still summer in New England. The sun is shining, the leaves are still green, and I am remaining firmly in adventure mode until my new job begins in October (which is when it will both actually be autumn, and I might admit that it is time to put away the shorts). It’s time for my weekly workouts and updates, which are pretty much all about being home and getting ready to head out again for the Dumbo Double Dare.
