Baby Shower Luncheon - Part 3!!

OK - I promise this will be my last post on the baby shower!! I just have to show you some of the great food we had - I have a funny relationship with food - I love to eat it but am not sooo fond of cooking it. My daughters can't believe I don't love to cook like they do but after 35 years of cooking it really does become a bit of a chore!! I must say though I really did excel myself last weekend - even if I pat myself on the back!!

We enjoyed lots of homemade sausage rolls, quiches and pinwhells as well as this fabulous cob loaf. It was a scooped out cob loaf of bread filled with a great cheesy mix then put back in the oven to crisp up. We served it with pieces of toasted garlic bread - very yummy!! DN 1 made these great little pikelets with mustard in them then topped them with a basil leaf, cherry tomato and bocconcini - just devine!

I made these waffles - they are just a batter mix and fried in shortening which we topped with curried prawns or cheesy asparagus. Very easy and very yummy!

We also served sushi and a delicious chicken/mango/avocado mix served in papadams but I don't have a photo of them on my camera.

As usual in our family desserts were a major attraction - the chocolate cupcakes (the plate was full to start with!) were really popular as were the individual mint cheesecakes.

We had a stand of cupcakes decorated in pink or blue which were fabulous as well as a plate of tiny cupcakes with baby footprints on them - if you look carefully they have only four toes - the cakes were so small we could only fit four on!!

We are still waiting for the little bundle to arrive - due in two weeks so we are all getting very excited!!

Today I am joining Foodie Friday with my baby shower luncheon.

I looked through all three posts -- what a charming shower and I'm sure, loads of fun! Since I just had a bridal shower....perhaps we can look forward to one of these in a couple of years! LOL

Everything looks great - but that Cobb loaf is to die for! I'd love that recipe! That looks like a really fun Baby Shower!
