Can you tell we went the easy route when it came to side dishes for our picnic baby shower? And why not? We didn't sacrifice flavor or visual appeal in the least, and the ladies were so appreciative that they could eat their little bellies full out without regret.
Shauna must have a berry patch hiding behind her townhome, because these strawberries, raspberries and blueberries that she brought were perfection. I could have gone to bed snuggling the leftovers.
So far you have the Wedge Vine Tomato & Avocado Salad and fresh berries to accompany the Cashew-Chicken Rotini Salad . The third side dish is the easiest of all: kettle chips! I couldn't resist. Salty, crunchy, and unpretentious. The menu needed some crispiness to go along with the other softer textures, wouldn't you agree? Normally I'd say that a basic potato chip would be tacky at a shower, however, in this case it seemed to fit the casual picnic vibe we were going for. Besides, don't you worry; we got the yummy, quality, thick ones.
