Door County runs at an extremely slow pace in the winter… something I think all Door Countyites cherish. While we all are waiting patiently for spring, Mark and I are waiting for our first grandchild to be born. Carissa and Josh are expecting a baby girl in the middle of March and we are all super excited. Nellie, Emilie and I had a baby shower for Carissa on Sunday. She got really beautiful things… lots of pink. Sure hope that sonogram is correct.
My friend Kim from Pink Bakery in Egg Harbor made the croissants for the chicken salad and the cutest cupcakes I have ever seen! There were four different flavors including chocolate ganache with red rasberry frosting and cherry almond with a buttercream frosting. They were all really delish and a big hit with all the girls.
I made Sangria and pink lemonade and a tarragon chicken salad that I tried to copy from the Door County Bakery who makes the absolute best. I think it was the loudest shower I have ever been… between my own daughters, their friends and my nieces, there were a lot of laughs. I think everyone had a really nice time. I know I did! I loved all the little pink things for the baby. Egg Harbor will have a new little resident in just a few weeks. Stay tuned.
