September = Summer!

Unlike the rest of the Bay Area (and the country), June-August isn't really summer in San Francisco. Our heat wave comes in September! What better way to kick off this lovely season than with a jam-packed Labor Day weekend?

Mrs. Foodie and the Feast has been on hiatus, partly because she has a bun in the oven! I made the food for her brunch baby shower, with a little help from some of the other ladies there.

L: Orange Oatmeal Pistachio Muffins, M: Deviled Eggs, R: Tea Sandwiches
(smoked salmon + cucumber + herbed cream cheese, garlic & artichoke hummus + olives + sundried tomatoes, chicken salad + apples + walnuts)
Not Pictured but very yummy: Roasted Heirloom Tomatoes! (some were stuffed with breadcrumbs)

L: Pate Sucree Fruit Tarts w/ Vanilla Pastry Cream (raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, & white currants),
R: mini chocolate-vanilla cupcakes with cream cheese frosting)

Other weekend activities included a wedding, time with the fam, and the Cal-Tennessee game. I'm blog-happy and made a new one! Another random aside, this song is my official summer anthem. Yay for summer!

Ooooh those pictures looks so pretty! The muffins were so good this weekend. I'm hungry now. But I can't eat that stuff so I'm going to buy fruit.
