My dear friend is having a baby this month. A few weeks ago I hosted a celebration in her honor. It turned out great. The menu was delightful – I felt it was worth sharing.
In seeking inspiration, I scoured blogs and websites (of course) and lo and behold – Martha Stewart does not disappoint! I settled on Martha’s menu for a French Countryside shower. Perfect, as the mama-to-be is a true francophile. On the menu:
Potato Leek Soup – Such a straightforward and delicious recipe. I have welcomed this recipe into my rotation. Served in mugs for ease.
Radishes with Chives – These are so simple, pure, and delicious. The bed of salt that they are presented on also adds a world of flavor.
Pisaladiere – the onions that cook down for over an hour with a touch of sugar are like candy, wow
Chocolates – A nod to our hometown, we’ve been friends for 30 years, the chocolates came from Sweet Surrender in Bakersfield.
Strawberry, Banana, Orange Mimosas
I kept the decorations fairly simple. On my last trip to Texas Antiques Week I found the ‘bebe’ letters at one of my favorite vendors – Clutter. They are vintage float letters from a parade in San Antonio.
What do you think? Might you try some of these recipes yourself? I would personally make each of them again (Thank You Martha). Bon Appetit.
