bettyjoan Posted April 20, 2014 Share Posted April 20, 2014 I am traveling to San Francisco in May to throw a baby shower for my sister (I'm getting a nephew in June, woo hoo!), and I'm starting to think about the food and drink options. Originally, I was going to spring for catering, but oh my sweet goodness was it expensive (as in, the shower could cost more than my wedding - no thanks). I am a good cook, but I do not want to spend the whole weekend in the kitchen - I want to hang out with the mommy-to-be! I was thinking maybe a couple Boston Butts done in the slow cooker could be good - maybe one Southern BBQ style, and another with an Asian twist. I could get buns/rolls and slaw, for those who want to do sandwiches. I also make a really good cucumber salad, and it is easy to do ahead and in bulk. Does anyone have further recommendations? I get in on Thursday PM, and the shower is Sunday (so I'll have two full days to shop/prep/cook - though, my chefly brother-in-law could get me some things in advance, I'm sure). The shower is from 1-5 PM, open house style, so I suspect people will be making either a late lunch or an early dinner out of the offerings. Thanks so much for your thoughts!
