Recipes for the shower menu

  • Shrimp ceviche
    This menu item can be prepared totally or partially the evening before it should be served. It can be served in a variety of ways, like a salsa with chips, spooned onto a piece of toasted tortilla in more of an hourderve format, or served in individual containers as a meal course.

    Note: Imported brie made with unpasteurized milk may not be appropriate for expectant mothers so be sure to see where and how the cheese was produced.
