Baby Shower!

This past Saturday I co-hosted a baby shower for one of my good friends. You would think I would have gone way overboard on decorations and favor boxes.  But I didn’t.  I spent all my energy on the food!  I made a delicious baked French toast with pecans, mini quiche (vegetarian and with ham), deviled eggs with a hint of habanero sauce, a cheese plate, crackers, fruit, yogurt, chips and mini cupcakes.  Everything was so tasty.

I did one crafty thing for the shower.  I put together a mini album where each guest wrote a bit of advice then we added a picture.  Here is what a blank page looked like.

The basic recipe for the baked French toast is:

1 French baguette, cubed

8 eggs

2 cups milk

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons vanilla


1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup butter



1/2 cup brown sugar

Put the bread in a 9 by 13 pan, mix ingredients and pour over bread.  Cover and put in the fridge overnight.  In the morning, mix up the topping and sprinkle over the top. Add pecans if you want.  Bake for 1 hour at 350.  Yummy!
