Easy Baby Shower Menu Ideas

When you are thinking about food for a Baby Shower it is best to keep the Baby Shower Menu Ideas simple. Do not make things more difficult for yourself than they have to be.

For a fun baby shower it is important that the food is tasty, that is true, but many simple and easy Baby Shower Menu Ideas can still be tasty and fun. Concentrate on the other aspects of the baby shower and keep the food simple.

One way of keeping things simple is by making full use of any kitchen appliances you have. Think of dishes that can be made easily in any of the appliances you have and plan your menu around those.

On the other hand, if it is summer and you are having the baby shower outside, serving cold dishes is a very good idea. What I suggest then is serving only one hot course and making the rest cold.

If you have a slow cooker such as a Cuisinart PSC 350 3 1 2 Quart Programmable Slow Cooker, that is a three and a half quart slow cooker, you can serve a hot soup as a starter, for instance, and follow it with a cold main course. For your main course you can serve a variety of cold cuts, salad and fresh homemade bread.

Cold cuts does not have to work our expensive as you can make roasts etc. yourself and then slice them with a slicer such as a the Chef's Choice 632 International Gourmet Varitilt Electric Food Slicer. The fresh homemade bread can be made in a breadmaker such as the Cuisinart CBK 100 Programmable Breadmaker. For all the chopping you can use a food processor as one of the Cuisinart 11 Cup Pro Custom 11 Food Processors.

And the last appliance that can come in handy is an ice cream maker such as a Cuisinart ICE-50BC Supreme Ice Cream Maker. With this ice cream maker you can make tasty homemade ice cream in no time.

Ok, so none of us have this many kitchen appliances in our kitchens. I know, but I am only trying to show you how you should think about Baby Shower Menu Ideas. The idea is to make it as easy as possible and as stress free as possible so that you can enjoy it with your guests.

Remember, tasty food is preferable to "fancy" food that does not taste that good. A hearty meal will always be preferred over something exceptional the does not really taste all that good.

There is one more thing to keep in mind when you are thinking about Baby Shower Menu Ideas, what the mommy-to-be can eat. Ask her if there is any food that does not agree with her and make sure you do not serve it.

As far as alcohol is concerned you also have to check with her if she will be comfortable with the guests having wine with their meal while she is not allowed to use any alcohol.

So, by keeping these few suggestions in mind you should not have a problem coming up with easy Baby Shower Menu Ideas.
