My First Mother’s Day!

Where was I??  Oh yeah…

I had a Baby!!


Figure Mother’s Day is a fitting day for finally updating my blog to tell you all about the arrival of Miss Charlotte Rose :)


My due date was April 22, but she decided she wanted to join us on April 5, 2013 at 7:59pm.  She was a little peanut at 5lbs 4oz. 

But first a quick recap of Mother’s Day because we had a delicious brunch at my aunt Joan’s house!

Thanks to Pinterest (and Food and Wine magazine), she found this awesome egg recipe that was so delicious I can’t wait to re-create it at home!!

Here’s the recipe:

My aunt used Portuguese bread instead of brioche, but it was incredible.  Such good flavors. 


There was also a French toast/bread pudding dish, a baked frittata (with lots of veggies, sausage, and feta cheese), salad, fruit, bacon, sausage, and yummy cakes for dessert.

And of course lots of baby-holding…



Charlotte with her mom, grandmother, and great-grandmother!

Since I knew we had a family gathering today, Charlotte, Brian and I spent the day together yesterday.

The highlight was definitely this guy:


That is a MASSIVE lobster roll from Belle Isle Seafood in East Boston.  We saw it once on that Anthony Bordain show, “No Reservations”, and I’ve been wanting to make a visit ever since!  

The lobster rolls are huge, and simple…just lobster meat and a little mayo on a grilled hot dog bun.  There is WAY more meat than the bun can handle but that’s fine with me :)  I ended up eating half of it with a fork.


We also got clam chowder to try it out and it’s one of the best I’ve had.  Creamy and very flavorful.  It’s slightly  out of the way but we will definitely be back. 

I can’t wait to share all about her birth, but right now I’m just excited to get this one post done!  Hopefully this will kick me back into gear because clearly I have a lot to share.  We are just loving every minute with her right now.

But for now some more pics of the little one :)
