Super... Super Bowl 2010!

Hey all!! How were your weekends?? I am going to get caught up on blog reading... but... first...

A big CONGRATS to the Saint's for their 1st Superbowl Victory. I thought that was exciting for them :) Regardless of what team you were cheering for... I hope you all had some fun parties.

My darling Parents hosted a partayyy at their home...


It was a lottt of fun! People from their church, friends, and their family all gathered around the Big Screens to watch the game, ahem, or the commercials! Haha that was my favorite part!

Remember these?

Well... ours looked more like this...

  1. They took more time than we thought & we waited until Sunday afternoon after church to make them
  2. We should have "chilled" the truffle balls before coating with Chocolate. Bummer!
  3. We should have used a "thinner" chocolate - like bark, not chips.
Live and learn right?? They still tasted DELISH... which is all that matters. Right? RIGHT? Haha everyone seemed to like them regardless.

My parents worked really hard to "remodel" the basement in their home. It turned out GORGEOUS! My mom is an artist, but I think she really has an eye for INTERIOR design too. It was so fun to see the final product!!

Thanks Mom & Dad for having all of us over! Gotta love Parents!

I have a feeling this is a week of SACRIFICE for me. I am learning what that means and looks like... more to come! Happy New Week :)

Good job on the footballs, that's pretty much the way mine looked too. They were no where near looking like the one's that Bakerella made. Oh well at least they tasted good right!!

It was so hard shaping them like footballs, and the dipping in the chocolate was complicated too! I froze mine for a little bit, and the first one was perfect but after awhile they just turned to mush.
