I think my hips just got bigger....

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!

Glad you had a great time! How did the cake go - did everyone totally love the total chocolatyness? hehehe

Yes! I had to fight to bring a couple pieces home for Mark. One lady said she doesn't really like cake, but tried a piece because everyone was raving, and said she would like to have the recipe! I really like that cake... They like that it is really chocolatey without being overly sweet, because of the sour cream.

Are you going to post the recipe? That's sounds so yummy! And I love the idea of making a washcloth to go with the towel. I make those too and just made one last night!
