So there are a bunch of threads on this already, but nothing that's really inspiring me.
The shower is for me. It'll be between 20-30 people. No real theme--I'm kind of just choosing random foods I've been craving. (My last shower I did Hawaiian--kalua pork and cabbage, shoyu chicken, pancit, lumpia, tropical fruit salad, haupia cake, punch bowl of Blue Hawaiians.) My mother and MIL are throwing it, but my mom wants me to let her know what kind of food I want. So far my (random assortment) must haves are:
Smitten Kitchen's Quiche Lorraine
My MIL's eggplant parm
I want to avoid anything too "cutesy"--cupcakes, mini quiches, finger sandwiches, etc. It's during lunch, so I'd prefer some substantial food, not just hors d'oeuvrs. My mother is a pretty seasoned cook, so links I could send her for recipes would be great!
Not sure if this is even making sense--please excuse my scattered preggo brain. Thanks!
