help needed - baby shower menu

jmacd | Nov 4, 2009 11:48 AM

I'm helping to host a baby shower for about 30 guests, some vegetarians, and I'm having a hard time finding a menu that I'm completely thrilled with. I figured I would come to you all as my trusty food professionals! It's a 1:30pm start time and I'm guessing people will have had a late breakfast but no lunch. Here are my thoughts:
pickle board - pickled veggies (fave of the mom to be)

cheese boards - served on slate boards with some good local cheeses, honey,
breads - one sweet, one plain, and spicy mustard from dr. gonzo

crudites, hummus (or creamy dip)

pita chips, carmelized onion dip or buffalo chicken dip (undecided between favorites)

mini blts
bacon, lettuce, tomato, aioli/mayo on baguette slices

bbq tofu sandwiches
baked bbq tofu, sharp cheddar, foccacia

chicken salad mini croissants

lentil salad

green salad
I'm waivering on whether it's substantial enough food and whether the lentil salad is really the way to go. would you for something else warm given the cooler fall weather? or does it balance out well? looking forward to all of your comments, thank you in advance!
