Baby Shower Menu: Mint Cucumber Sandwiches, More

mint cucumber sandwiches | @kitchenability

I once had the honor of helping to host a baby shower for one of my dearest friends. I cooked all of the food at the party, and man did I cook!

I made a lot of different appetizers, including several items from Kitchenability 101, like my Sweet Chili Cranberry Meatballs, Pigs in a Snuggie, asparagus wrapped in bacon, and Mediterranean pasta.

I also made cucumber tea sandwiches shaped like owls to fit with the party’s theme. Everyone loved them!

The recipe below is for mint and cucumber tea sandwiches, which will provide you with the tea sandwich basics. From there you can improvise and have some fun experimenting with different combos.

Make these sandwiches, put on some tea and invite some friends over!

  2. Place the cucumber slices on top of the cream cheese
