Football Food

I continued with my football game dinner menus all last week. Appetizers are so much fun to make and eat. I was going to grill the chicken wings, but my propane tank had a leak. Luckily, they're easy to bake. College Boy inhaled half of these. I think he was hungry. There were no leftovers.

I had leftover pumpkin puree from making some nasty pumpkin bars. The bars were bland and not a big hit around here. Inspector Gadget took them to work where apparently people will eat anything. I told him to put them in the break room anonymously. Sneak in, sneak out. I have a reputation to uphold. This pumpkin oatmeal I mixed the night before and let sit in the fridge. In the morning I baked it off. I added a touch of milk to reduce the richness. It was okay. No more pumpkin until October.

Farm progress. Just look at that celery go. It's all organic too. I guess I better look up when you're supposed to put it in dirt. Or maybe I'll go all hydroponic like Epcot. I should have a bunch of celery by Fall. Ha.

Creamed spinach, Meyer lemon, bacon, and goat cheese pizza on the left. Based loosely on this recipe. Next time, I'll steal a car and get the proper ingredients. The whole wheat crust from that recipe is really good. I did have the proper ingredients for that. The other pizza was Italian sausage and mozzarella. Some people don't like spinach around here.

I won these five fat quarters by Kaffe Fassett from A Quilting Life. They are so pretty. I've been so lucky winning giveaways lately. I should play the lottery. Speaking of giveaways, the winner of Rene's Peace pattern is ritainalaska. Congratulations and thank you to all who entered.

Our Super Bowl menu was chicken wings, blue cheese guacamole. veggie platter, deviled eggs, bacon wrapped water chestnuts and chicken livers, and tomato caper bruschetta. We had a small crowd this year. Wasn't the game exciting? Back to normal dinners this week. Happy Monday!


  1. I've never heard of blue cheese guacamole but it sounds great...I have several ripe avocados right now that need consuming. Do you add anything special to your deviled eggs? Congrats on the lovely Kaffe fabric!

  2. Those wings just made me so hungry.


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
