Baby Hummus Sandwiches for a Virtual Baby Shower

Baby Hummus SandwichesThis invitation to a virtual party really excited me.  Why?  Because it’s for Annie’s baby shower!  Annie is a food blogging friend at Annie’s Eats who is pregnant with her second child.  It’s a girl!!  Annie and I started blogging around the same time and she’s been an inspiration to me since day one.

I remember when Annie was expecting her first baby a few years ago, a precious baby boy.  It’s actually a vivid memory, and I distinctly recall thinking how cool she was because she decorated super cute sugar cookies to announce her pregnancy on her blog.  At that moment I thought, “wouldn’t it be fun to somehow throw her a virtual baby shower?”  But, I quickly dumped that thought for two reasons:  1) I hardly knew her at the time and figured she’d think I’m a freak for offering to do so <smile>…and 2) Being new to the blogging world, I had no idea how a virtual party would work, or what that would look like.  In fact, I don’t think there were any previously thrown virtual parties at that time.  Now, here we are doing it!  🙂  Thanks to Courtney, another friend who blogs at Cook Like a Champion, for hosting!

I chose to serve these Baby Hummus Sandwiches at the party in order to offer a vegetarian option.  They are filled with layers of hummus and veggies, and a sprinkle of feta cheese.  Having small sandwiches like these at a party makes it easy for your guests to pick them up and eat them, even if they don’t choose to grab a plate!   Don’t just save these for a shower, serve them this Sunday at your Super Bowl party!

Annie and Courtney both posted a round up of all the food the other guests brought to the party.  Check out their posts to see the gorgeous photos and snatch the links to the other recipes.  These bloggers are some of my favorites where I have found many delicious recipes.  I’m sure you’ll find yourself drooling!

Congratulations, Annie!  Super excited for your sweet baby girl to arrive so we can all give her a big virtual hug!  🙂
