Vanessa’s Baby Shower: The Food

It’s Monday, and the only way to start the week, especially THANKSGIVING week, is with food.

I don’t really have lots of pictures for this post, but I’m going to talk about the shower food anyway.  We could’ve done a taco bar with several meats and all the toppings and the shell of your choosing, but since the shower started at 3:00, I didn’t think a full meal was the way to go.  Instead, we had Mexican food-inspired snacks, sweets, and sips.


The snacks:

  • Chips, salsa, and guacamole
  • Jalapeno poppers (These were supposed to be cream cheese-stuffed, bacon-wrapped jalapenos.)
  • Veggies and dip
  • Vegetarian taco cups
  • Meatballs (with a little spice thanks to cayenne pepper)


The sips:

  • Citrus sangria (recipe: big bottle pinot grigio, big bottle moscato, pineapple rum, peach schnapps, one can pineapple chunks in syrup, plus sliced fruit like oranges, limes, and lemons)
  • Classic margaritas (But made with equal parts tequila, simple syrup, and lime juice – sooo good!)
  • Soda and water


The sweets:

Mexican food and margaritas: If those don’t say “baby shower,” I don’t know what does.
