Fiesta Wedding Shower

July3

There are a couple of families in our life, whose edges are so overlapping and intertwined with ours, that it is hard to see where they end and we begin. Is this true in your circles as well? Recently, we were all together to celebrate the upcoming marriage of one of the  daughters of this large brood.  Sister #2 was the host for the Sunday afternoon event.  Many hands contributed to the food and the success of the event including the bride’s best friend who joined the festivities via Skype from Austria.

The theme was a Mexican Fiesta and the gifts that were showered upon the couple were gifts that they could enjoy on their honey-moon in the Caribbean.  The bride wore a “fascinator” which was a little decorated black sombrero.  The prop did not diminish how positively glowing and elegant she appeared.

Upon arrival, there were platters of shrimp ceviche and guacamole and chips.

Sister #2 also found a recipe for a slice made of the same ingredients as chilies relleno.   The tastes were similar but way easier to eat than the classic dish.

These black bean and goat cheese quesadillas were perfection too.

Here’s a clever idea: she prepared these little to cups.

Which we then filled with our desired amounts of meat and cheese

and topped with our favourite fixings.  A mini taco bar!

But my favourite appetizer was Tequila Chicken in Corn Bread Muffin Cups.  She said that the cups lend themselves to a scoop of pretty much anything that you might choose.

Love-that is all.
