Baby Shower Brunch

Owl Table Decor - stinkin' cute!
Get a passionate vegetarian on your planning committee for anything and I guarantee that the animal products will begin to magically fade from the menu!  You won't even notice that they're disappearing but when you take a look at your plate at the event... no meat!  Voila!

I had the awesome opportunity to co-host a baby shower this past weekend and lo' and behold... meatless brunch!  My dear friend Poonam even pulled a switcheroo and produced a delicious meatless gravy to spoon all over her homemade biscuits.  WHAT?!  I haven't had biscuits & gravy for years - yum.

Unfortunately, we weren't able to Vegan-ize but it's not for lack of heart - just a lack of products!  We included cage free local eggs and milk in the gravy.  I'm going to try to make the gravy recipe with almond milk this week.  I'll let you know how it goes!
Poonam & Michelle (mommy!)

On the menu:

Poonam's Biscuits & Gravy (Recipe coming...)

Sausage & Broccoli bake

We also had a large fruit plate on hand...

The little baby girl that's about to pop into the world will be named Olivia and the mommy-to-be has chosen a owl theme for the nursery.  Accordingly, our cocktail for the brunch was called an 'Owlivia' and came complete with orange slices for Owl Eyes.  (Just a little Prosecco and OJ!)    

Owlivia's waiting to be filled...

Me and Michelle - love that belly :)
