I'm cooking for my BFF's baby shower this weekend & am second guessing my menu. It's co-ed, child-friendly, with about 60 invitees & happening at 1 pm so the main dish will be a smoked pork shoulder pulled to make make sliders with. It will be sans sauce because mama-to-be hates sauce but I will have some off to the side to those who like it.
I planned on having these sides:
fruit salsa with cinnamon sugar pita chips (said mama-to-be loves this recipe so it stays no matter what!)
garden salad (lettuce, tomato, black olives, carrots, red peppers, etc...)
along with water and soda, I'll be providing sweet tea & lemonade for refreshments. there won't be any alcohol/beer/wine available per MTB's request. and grandma-to-be is providing a cake.
I'm realizing this all sounds just a bit heavy and boringly predictable &, frankly, like a lot of work. I happen to be moving the night before the baby shower so I'm trying to streamline my workload along with freshening up the menu.
I'm open to any/all suggestions y'all might have. I've been a long time board lurker & trust that there will be some great ideas I haven't thought of!
