"Announcing a Mysteries of Udolpho dinner! The book that Catherine Morland is fascinated with takes place in the Appenines, in Italy. So let's have some Northern Italian food, which I've been hungry for lately. Any intriguing or mysterious ingredients are welcome!" -- Stacey

Stacey hosted a surprise baby shower for Leslie. She decorated her home with a baby boy banner and yellow and blue balloons and streamers. Margo brought a delicious Chocolate Mousse Cake from Schubert's bakery decorated with baby bottles, ducks and building blocks. In addition to lotions, baby clothes, pajamas for Leslie and a diaper genie, the group bought Leslie a silver necklace engraved with Epicureaders and her name to match the ones the group purchased for their 4th anniversary. Lena bought a "Nemo" kite for Leslie's other two children, Lauren and Henry.
