Amuse Bouche

Well I just can't seem to get enough responsibilities in my life. Or so you'd think judging by how quick I am to take on new projects. On top of my Haiti event and my mom's tea party, I'm now planning a baby dedication for Gabriel! His first birthday is at the end of April and we'd been trying to plan a dedication for him since October but we just couldn't find a date that would work for everyone. Well, we figured we'd try to get one going again instead of a birthday party for him. Besides, it's got all the same features as a birthday party... there will be cake, grandparents, great-grandparents and presents... and a pastor. But he's cool :) The biggest issue with the baby dedication is that it will be held at our house. The reason that's an issue is that right now our house is renovation central. So we have a little over a month to finish up the renos we have started and tidy up all evidence of it.
Today I'm trying to figure out a fruit Amuse Bouche for my mom's tea party. I have these adorable amuse bouche spoons that I got for Christmas but I haven't had the chance to use them so I'm going to do some fun stuff with them at the party. Oh yah, and I'm planning to make chilled soup shots and proscuitto wrapped apples too. Although, I always sear my proscuitto - it's so much better that way!
I'm also going to run alot of errands today. Mostly for my Haiti event. I need to sell some tables and to find a few more Silent Auction donors. It's funny, it isn't even lunch yet and I've already accomplished a load of stuff and yet there's so much more I need to get done today.
Well, I'd best get started on my big to do list. I hope Gabe's up for the ride!

  1. Amuse-bouche? You are super fancy, Steph. Though if I remember correctly from your house-warming party, you are an excellent chef.

    When is this Haiti function? It sounds awesome.


I would love to know what you think of my recipes, or even of my antics! Let me know!
