Last Saturday, we had a bridal shower for my Daughter-In-Law (to be!), Kiren. The Daughts (Miz Chelsea Erickson of Beauty by Chelsea), our sweet friend, Dixie Moreau, and I, did NOT do too shabby! The two of them worked the Shampps (our word for champagne) Bar, and EVERYTHING ELSE. I handled the cooking and baking! We had creamy pasta salad, lemon thyme bars, crudité, crack sammiches (see past post Man Food, which obviously became Woman Food), two kinds of quiche, cinnamon rolls, bread pudding, fruit salad, mini panny-cakes (my own word for pancakes) with blueberries on top, orange cranberry muffins, and cucumber-radish canapés, along with three different juices and fruits for the Shampps Bar to go into the sugar-rimmed glasses! Whew! So you can OBVIOUSLY see why I am only going to post one recipe, and probably the easiest, and yet super-chic: canapés.
These little beauties were DELISH! The wedding is boho-chic, and these went perfectly with the theme!
1 pkg white bread (I know, I know. I preach against it all the time. But this is a MUST to make these successfully)
1/2 stick butter, softened
2 cucumbers, washed and sliced thinly
1 pkg radishes, washed and sliced thinly
1 cup sour cream
dill, for garnish
Take the bread and with a round cookie mold (or some other kind of pattern that will mold two small rounds out of one slice - a small glass, perhaps?) make two small rounds without crust. Lightly butter each round, then pile cucs and then radishes on them. Place a very small dollup of sour cream on the pile and then garnish with the dill. Sounds too easy to be delicious? Try it and see for yourself!
I appreciate all the hard, HARD work Dixie put in. She is a MACHINE!
(I seem to be focused more on the food and less on Dixie Doodle! - sorry Pretty Girl!) And of course, The Daughts and all HER HARD WORK! (#hostesswiththemostess)
Below is the Love Fest among The Daughts, The DIL, and me (She!)
And last but certainly not least: THIS gorgeous bunch of crazies!
