Earlier this week I shared our Evening to Nourish table decor...today I'm sharing our menu and recipes!
Don't forget to subscribe to the blog via email so you have access to the printable menu (both the above version as well as a blank one) and printable place cards, as well!
I'm SO sad I didn't take photos of the food! Y'all...TOTAL blogger fail.
Baby Elsabet ended up having the flu that day and my sweet friend Kendra came over to help prep but just held Baby Girl for a few hours while I cooked, instead. I think they both were in heaven, savoring all those cuddles.
As you can imagine, the day ended up a lot crazier than planned! Especially being summer and having all six kids home anyway. Woo! Insanity.
Since I don't have photos of our food to show, I'm linking directly to the recipes I found online.

Barbacoa Beef Street Tacos (in the Crockpot!)
(I used Chicken instead...but still used the beef broth, etc.)
It was amazing.
Instead of doing another meat taco, I wanted to make sure I had enough for my veggie loving friends.
So instead I used black beans, freshly sliced avocado, and chopped pineapple.
(Managed to take this photo before adding the chopped pineapple)
The incredible looking Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette on the below photo is every bit as good as it looks.
All my friends wanted the recipe...so ladies, here it is!
After blending the yumminess up, I poured it into little jam-jars, placing several on the table so our guests could put it onto whatever tacos they wanted.
Mexican Chopped Salad
Oh.My.Gosh this was good! Totally making it again soon.
I always like having a fun little cocktail for dinner parties.
When I found the recipe for a Margarita Sangria (we called it a Sangrita), my mouth instantly started salivating, I knew I'd found a winner!
I forgot to add the cilantro at the last minute, so we had it without. Next time though, I'd love to try it with that beautiful herb!
If you make it, let me know what you think!
Everyone hated the food. Obviously. haha.
There really wasn't a leftover to be seen.
For dessert, we had blood orange sorbet with a touch of Whipped Cream Vodka on top.
It was simple and yet a touch fun and decadent.
Think you might host your own Nourish event?
If you do, I'd love to hear about it!!
