The day totally escaped me today. I meant to do my spelt banana bread post before heading out to watch the Superbowl with some friends, but we ended up barely finishing our dessert we promised them.
I loved the readable ingredient list.
Frosting: I made the Hershey’s chocolate frosting following the recipe on the back of an unsweetened cocoa mix container and made a separate batch of basic buttercream. We stuck the plain buttercream in a plastic bag and I attempted to decorate the cupcakes with footballs. Hubby suggested doing some Colt symbols and some “NO’s”. They all came out meh.
Perhaps I should dig out that cake decorating set my mom got me awhile back? lol
We got to Kate and Nate’s house a little late, but just in time for food.
I brought some of my spelt banana bread as a host/hostess gift.
We all gathered in the kitchen to dig into the food.
My favorite part of this group is how everyone has similar eating styles – a tendency towards the healthy eats. Tonight I heard “Ooh, kale chips!” and “Ooh, salad!” Oh yes, my friends rock.
Kath and I captured the night with our cameras.
I had a pom + perrier with lime (and some with a little cherry juice) to drink. The drink was so good I ended up having 3!
When the pizza came out fresh from the oven, I had to dig in.
I snagged a piece of margherita pizza.
Bailey goofed off all night. He’s currently zonked laying next to me whilst I blog away.
Round #2 – more kale chips and some fresh-from-the-oven cheese pizza.
When Kelsey showed up with her goat cheese balls + crackers, I had to try one.
Yumm-O! (and I’m not even a big fan of goat cheese)
Random photo, but I LOVE Kath and Matt’s house slippers. They wore them to the party. So smart! I think I need some of these.
Once I was satisfied with the savory, I hit up the sweets – some zeppoli.
I had one of my cupcakes and a zeppoli.
NOM NOM NOM
The cupcake was so good, I had to have a second.
Hubby and Bailey found a nice spot to watch the game.
Kath, Kate, and moi.
The superbowl party was a blast. Good eats + great friends = FUN time!
Thanks Kate and Nate for having us over! 🙂
