I’ve always had a heart for the “new kid” which translates to the “new mom” in my current phase in life. A couple of weeks ago the girls and I hosted a “welcome to town playdate” for a friend of one my sister’s childhood friends (did you get that?) that just moved to town with her family. Planning a midmorning snack for new friends can be tricky as you don’t want a new (or old friend for that matter) to leave with a bad taste in his or her mouth. With this in mind, I sent out a tweet asking for ideas. What was tweeted back was a very sweet tweet: Lemon poundcake with the promise from @worththewhisk that I could make it with on-hand ingredients.
Sounded like a win-win – and it was!
We served the warm pound cake with fresh fruit and juice…
What did you serve the last time you welcomed new friends to town?
