Okay, I’ve been a bad blogger this week. Things haven’t even really been extremely hectic; I just haven’t been good about writing. I have decided that I need a personal planner (thoughts inspired by Emma at Legally Lovely’s post today), because twice this week I’ve forgotten events that I needed to attend and figured it out at the last minute (workout group and JL meeting).
But anyway, the reason I’m writing this short post is this: I need some suggestions. We’re planning on having some friends over to watch college football on Saturday. I’ve already been working on house straightening (who painted a bathroom and put together a shelf last night? Meeee!), but I need food ideas for this get-together.
I’m assuming it will be mostly guys from Ducks’ section that will be over and a couple of our college friend. It’s an afternoon game, so we don’t have to make a big meal, but I want to have plenty of snacks and beverages on hand. And, I’d like to make most of the food tonight if possible because tomorrow I’m going with my friend H to look for her WEDDING DRESS (did I mention that I’m a bridesmaid?! I feel so honored because I’ve only known her for about a year, but we’ve become good friends).
Anyway, so H, her MoH (K from work), her sister, L (from work) and I are going on a dress scouting expedition, as well as celebrating H’s birthday. Then, I’m rushing home for this, the most important football game of the year, the game that could be a statement game about our improved team and the game that ensure our trip to a bowl game this year (yes, I know it’s only the third week of the season, but as I’m trying to impress upon you all, this game means a lot.
So, back to topic: I need ideas for food for the party. I’ve asked my friend Christi to bring over some sweet and sour meatballs that she makes, which are SO good, but beyond that, I’ve got nothing. I want to impress the law school friends, whom I’ll be meeting for the first time, and I want to not be super-stressed about whether things are ready to go. Plus, this will apparently be only the first of many such events as Ducks has agreed that our house can be a hosting place for the [insert alma mater name here] Bar Association social events.
Recipes, suggestions, drink ideas? I’m all ears.
And, if you happen to be in town, stop by! 🙂
