The spring CSA at Hampstead Farms kicked off this week. I brought home some beets, arugula, garlic scapes, mint, and roasted chipotle peppers. I'm really excited to see what else we'll be getting this season. For dinner last night, I roasted the beets and served it over the spicy arugula with some roasted sweet peppers, almonds, and Parmesan cheese. We didn't have any dressing, so I made a quick honey vinaigrette for this refreshing salad.
Last month, my husband and I hosted a baby shower for my brother-in-law & sister-in-law. For those who know me, they know that I live to entertain. I was super excited to start planning. The parents-to-be were doing an zoo theme in their nursery, so they requested a similar theme for the shower. We got some cute baby animal invitations from Gartner Studios. So cute and easy to use. I also made my first diaper cake, which was absolutely so much fun. As for food, we decided on an afternoon tea eats after having a conversation with my sister-in-law about how much she missed Alice's Tea Cup in New York City. It just so happened that I received their cookbook last Christmas from my sweet sweet cousin. The shower menu consisted of a couple of tea sandwiches and scones from the book. But my favorite was the berry berry cupcakes!
