"After the Maid"

My "after the maid" service is my unique service. I do not know of anyone doing this. I come preferably on the day the maid comes, bring dinner for the family, something to drink when you arrive, and a snack. I can have everything ready to warm, time it so that it is ready to eat when you arrive, or have ready in your frig to finish baking. I give you menu choices and work with you to make it "kid friendly" if need be.

At this home, I made a chicken tetrazzini, a green salad with pears, feta cheese, and candied pecans, my Zuni dense no flour chocolate cake, and chocolate covered strawberries.

Even if you do not have a maid, you will enjoy this service. We aim to please.

Tuna Salad Sandwiches

Relish Tray
Potato Chips
Home Made Salsa & Tostitoe Chips

Guest enjoyed home made sandwich fillings with fresh breads, some from Central Market, Houston. To add to the romance of a wedding shower, we chose floating candles and lots of votive candles with rose petal sprinkles of red, pink and ivory.

One focal point was a place for guest to leave a "Recipe for a Happy Marraige" coupled with hand made cookbook covers to reflect the bride and groom.

Special party favors were pretzels dipped in
white chocolate and drizzled with milk
chocolate and special tags honoring the
wedding date of Josh & Josie.
