A Sunday shower

This weekend was the beginning of the wedding festivities for our friends Rebecca and Dave.

Today we threw them a shower.


The question was… what to cook for 40 people on a budget? We solved it perfectly.

We wanted our menu to be simple yet delicious. Since it was a brunch time shower we decided upon a vegetable frittata (potatoes, eggs, spinach, red peppers, red onions, cheese, garlic).
A very minimal but very flavorful salad of mixed greens and vinaigrette.
For dessert – cream biscuits with vanilla ice cream and strawberry/rhubarb compote.
To drink – homeade bloody marys garnished with olives and pickled jalapenos.
It was all quite simple yet very colorful and delicious.
We ate, drank, and were merry.
Cheers to the both of you.

  2. Mmm, that looks absolutely delicious! I love cooking things like frittatas and gratins for big groups. I made a sweet potato/kale gratin the other day for a family gathering, and it went over really well, too! May have to steal your homemade bloody mary idea. 🙂

  3. Thank you! Sweet potato/ kale gratin sounds so good!

    By the way…a key secret ingredient to our homemade bloody mary mix: dill.
