Do it Yourself

Our Weekend with Friends Football Menu

 We had a wonderful weekend with friends and football. 

Around this time of year, every weekend, until football season ends, will include some type of football related activity, whether Fantasy Football drafts, games at home or games at a stadium.

I’m head football activity chef and this weekend was my husbands Fantasy Football draft. In fact, he joined two leagues and ended up having two drafts at the same time. I was no help with draft picks, so I decided to make a little sumptin’ sumptin’ in the kitchen. 

My goal for dessert was Strawberry Cream Cheese cupcakes, but while talking to my husband, I added two cups of powdered sugar to the recipe in place of flour. 

The cupcakes turned out too sticky so I pulsed the that couldn’t be salvaged in the food processor and made a Strawberry Trifle.

The overly sweet cupcakes worked perfectly for this dessert.

There were four cupcakes that held their shape despite the excess sugar, so I iced them with cream cheese frosting.

For the main dish, I made fried chicken drumsticks, buffalo wings and hot wings. For the side, I fried up some homemade fries and baked some frozen fries.
Since we were having friends over, I pulled out the  2 gallon juice dispenser I ordered a few weeks ago and made a pitcher or iced tea. 

Everything was made ahead of time making it possible for me to enjoy time with my family and our friends. 

Let's continue to conversation in the comment section.
