Our food to guest ratio was a bit off. I might have prepared for 300 people when we really only had 7. My husband and I had decided beforehand that we were having an serious indulgence. We wanted the typical Super Bowl foods. We ordered pizza. I made wings, guacamole, chip dip, cookies and brownies. I am not sharing pictures of everything cause this is not that kind of blog ;) That and I was too busy stuffing my face to take pictures.
I did remember to take a few pictures of the making of our signature wings though. They are pretty simple. I start with Kraft Spicy Honey BBQ sauce and just two ingredients to make it our own.
Apparently, there is nothing like a Super Bowl party to motivate me to finally get the Christmas trees taken down. I worked on it Saturday night and Sunday morning. The trees and most of the ornaments are back in storage. I have about a box to finish packing up after I make a final decision on some ornaments that will be leaving the collection.
Zommie (our dachshund) has been sleeping with us lately, but is always ready to get out of bed when we get up. This morning I couldn't find her. I looked all around the house. I started to panic that somehow she had managed to get left outside last night...not sure how that would have been possible and I remember her being in bed during the night. The mind goes to some crazy places. My husband finally found her rolled up like a sleepy burrito in one of the blankets. He literally had to unroll her from the blanket. She is finally embracing her inner burrower. I definitely felt her pain this morning I would have loved to stayed burrowed in bed. One of these years I will have to remember the Monday after Super Bowl is a good day to take off :)
It was a good weekend and we were thrilled to end it on a high note with a Broncos win. My husband is a huge Peyton Manning fan and we both hope he decides to retire on this high note :)
