Mmmm, mmmm. I love going to baby showers, the food is always so pretty and delicious. Fruit salad, veggie tray, "chicken pillows", cake, and punch. I posted the cake pictures on my blog. I had 2 plates of food, and a slice of cake. The punch was grape juice concentrate and sprite, not exactly low cal.
And of course the hooded baby towels that I do for new mommies was ooohed and aaahed over. I use the nice big fluffy towel, pleat the center, and a hand towel for the hood. A cute ribbon combination or fabric and ribbon is sewn to the hood. I use the same ribbons to make a matching washcoth, and wrap it all up with the ribbons. These are big enough for kids to use until they are 4 or 5! Moms love them. I actually have sold a couple, which is nice. I have done so many that it only takes me about an hour if I am not interrupted.
These chicken pillows are so yummy! I make a slightly different version. It's chicken, green onions, cream cheese, mozzerella, garlic.... All wrapped in either croissant dough or biscuit dough and baked. I'll make them sometime and post the recipe.
I was exhausted when I got home, had a late night sewing the towel, and the kids let me take a short nap. That should do me until bedtime. I should be cleaning, but I think I'll take it easy and enjoy and piece of cake!
