Somebody, please, for the love of God -- HELP ME!!!
My mission, which I've already chosen to accept, is to host a baby shower for our friends. I threw Jon under the bus, too, as he is the co-host.
Not so much.
See, this is a co-ed shower. So no dainty tea type bullshit will work here. And it's for around 30 people who will be at our house from 11 a.m. - 3 p.m., also known as lunch time. And we don't really know about half of these people. And pregnant people can't eat, like, ANYTHING THAT TASTES GOOD. I really need some help.
I've scoured recipes sites for a workable menu to no avail. So far, the front runner is varied paninis with some salads and such. I'm a cake baking champ so I've got that covered. Despite our ongoing affair with restaurants, which was born out of lack of time rather than talent, Jon and I can kick the ass out of any recipe we come into contact with. That said, I'm not making foie gras canapes for 30 people that really won't give a shit. I'd like a menu that is really damn tasty without requiring us to be in the kitchen for the three days leading up to the party (or during the party for that matter).
Normally I can plan a party at the drop of a hat but with this one, my dearests, I am at a complete and total fucking loss. Please send help. I've got about three weeks to figure this shit out.
