I interupt this food blog...

To bring you what we did ALL. LAST. WEEKEND.

MARCH MADNESS!!!

I have a 22 year old son who was serving a mission for our church for the past 2 years.  He loves sports! Actually the whole family love sports.  But he felt like he had really missed out on some serious viewing while he was gone.  This year the NCAA changed a few things for their basketball tournament.  Every game in the tournament would be played on live tv.  That meant 4 channels would be covering every game. Live. It also just happened to be my sons spring break from school.  Coincidence?  He thinks not!  So he and his good friend planned out what would be the "perfect weekend".

Here is what greeted any guests.


Here is how the converted family room looked.

Yes.  That's 4 tv's.  We normally only have one tv in there (although now my husband thinks this is a perfect setup).  

And of course we needed to have our bracket nearby.

Yep, husband managed to print out a 3 foot by 4 foot bracket.  That baby will be up until April 4th when the championship game is played.

There was plenty of excitement here last weekend.  We had tons of guests.  And plenty of food too.  I'll be posting a few of the recipes I made in the next few days.  But we also had some good old standbys too.  Like...

PW Sheetcake
Shirley J Chicken Enchiladas
Peanut butter Cookies
Queso Dip and Chips
Panini's
Hot Wings
Corn Dogs
Banana Bread
Chips and salsa
Pot Roast Sandwiches
Lemon Squares
Caramel Popcorn

And of course, plenty of soda pop and candy. 

We all had a great weekend.  48 games in 4 days.  I was tired by Sunday night!

I hope your weekend was as good as ours!
