We had a great weekend.
Basketball games and science project on Saturday. Church and Super Bowl Party on Sunday.
If the Patriots are in the Super Bowl we cannot go to a party or have a party. Dan must be able to completely focus on the Patriots. Since the Patriots didn't make it to the big game, I decided it would be a perfect time to invite the BFF and her family over.
I kept the menu simple:
Homemade Ranch Dip and potato chips
Homemade Guacamole and tortilla chips
My secret recipe Pepper Jack Pimento Cheese Toasts
Pioneer Woman's Sloppy Joes
Baked Beans (provided by my mom - leftovers from Sunday lunch)
Key Lime Pie (purchased from the supermarket)
Cream Puffs (purchased from the supermarket)
Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding (provided by my mom - leftovers from Sunday lunch)
And last but not least, I made Cosmopolitans.
And that's the only picture from the whole evening because I was too busy chatting and eating and enjoying myself to think about taking pictures.
So in this very spot visualize 6 very cute kids roaming in and out of the kitchen helping themselves to food and drink when they weren't playing and entertaining themselves and 4 very cute (ha!) adults eating, drinking and making merry and occasionally remembering that there was a football game on in the background.
Shhhhhh....don't tell my husband this but I may secretly be hoping that the Patriots don't make it the playoffs next year either.
