Most men never experience the inner workings of a baby shower. Whether its out of fear or out of instruction, we stay away leaving our questions to be answered by stories and interpretation. So when I was asked to cater a friends baby shower this past weekend, I was more than a bit nervous. Would my presence alter the day? Would my food be able to please 26 women? Would I make it out alive?
No, Yes, and Yes!
It was such an honor to help out and make this day special. Despite the awful weather, we we’re blessed with just enough time for me to grill up a feast for all of the guests. And with the help of another friend and recent culinary partner, there were cakes and cookies galore for everyone to finish their meal with. Along with that strawberry basil cocktail everyone seemed to truly enjoy the day! Congrats Judy!
