Blog was down, but I was just awoken from sleep by my crazy brother in law yelling from New Orleans, so I guess the Saints won! Here’s the delayed post..
Best commercial yet: GOOGLE I heart Google.
I’m blogging LIVE from the Super Bowl!! Not wanting to miss the party, I brought my computer so I could chat, type and watch in the final quarter instead of having to do it when I get home. I gotta get up at 5AM regardless!!
We had a busy afternoon of yard work
(Matt painting the mailbox – he’s awesome and worked all day on the house!)
And me grocery shopping
(SCORE on the 3 giant cans of pumpkin I found!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I also found the new dessert Oikos and decided to try out the caramel
I had just a little bit of time to whip up some of Kelsey’s Pimento Cheese!
These Organic Valley cheeses arrived on my doorstep this past week and I knew they would be perrrrrrrfect for pimento cheese for the Super Bowl! I had a taste of each while I prepped and they were delish. I love sharp white cheddar!
I followed the recipe exactly except I use greek yogurt instead of sour cream! So easy and always in my fridge
Grating by hand is hard! But I didn’t want to dirty up the Cuisinart.
One of my very favorite foods!
We threw on our
shoes slippers and made our way to Kate + Nate’s for the big party. Both Matt and I LIVE in our Target slippers!!
This is the biggest party our friends group has ever thrown! EVERYONE was here!
Matt and Gilbert got right to scruffing
And I got right to eating!
I brought over these Old London Bagel Chips they company sent for me to review. Yummy!
I sipped on two POM + soda mocktails with lime and cherries throughout the night. Having to be up for work tomorrow I didn’t want to drink any alcohol.
I nibbled on chips and dip while we waited for everyone to arrive with their pot-luck contributions. I was quite hungry from my run by 5:30!
We had lots of variety representin’ tonight!
Kale chips made me ME!
Buffalo Chicken dip [I don't have any of these recipes – sorry!]
And WANGS made their appearance
Costco pizzas – which are really good!
Kate’s famous salads
Diana and I clicked away!
I wasn’t that hungry after nibbling through the dips, but I filled my plate with veggies, a slice of pizza and …more dips!
There were many doggies present tonight too – it was quite the full house! Lots of barking from both the dogs and the men!
For dessert, Diana brought some yummy football chocolate cupcakes
And Conor brought Zeppole (homemade donuts!) which means “cloud” in Italian
Emily and I split a cupcake
Which I munched with a cloud
I ended the night with two of Kelsey‘s late-arrival goat cheese balls
Snacked on the rest of my pimento cheese as we packed it all up to go! I’ve got a fun salad to take for lunch tomorrow
I think I’m headed home now to get in bed. Our friends are starting to leave and this girl needs her beauty rest! Hope y’all had a great Super Bowl evening!
PS. You’re going to want to be here early tomorrow morning for a little coupon special <3
