We always love contests in the shop so how could we resist playing the Super Bowl Square?
But wouldn’t you know it? The person who won both the 1st quarter and the overall game was Ashley – who doesn’t even follow football and was certainly not to be found in front of the game on Sunday!
I spent the hours, leading up to the game, in the kitchen whipping up the prizes. That, I must say, was probably as much fun as watching the game – and the ads!
Here were the prizes…I think the theme is obvious!
1st quarter winner – Chocolate Brownies with Guinness
2nd quarter winner – Beer Cheese Soup
3rd quarter winner – German-style Fried Potatoes with Lager
Overall winner – Drunken Sausages and Peppers in Pale Ale
Our house is for sale so we aren’t allowed anything out on our kitchen counters (except for our canisters) so I was glad for an excuse to pull out our Pewter Measuring Cups and Spoons. It just doesn’t seem right keeping them hidden but, once we get a buyer, I will have them right back out.
our Bird teaspoon took a tumble into the disposal a bit ago. I need to get it replaced. If this happens to you, we can either hammer out the dents and sand the edges a bit….or we can give you a recycling credit on it towards the purchase of a new one. But, I hope you are more careful than we are!
Next posting….the recipes, of course!
I hope everyone enjoyed the Super Bowl or, if not, a quiet Sunday afternoon while everyone else was watching!
