a football birthday

My husband is a huge Atlanta Falcons fan, so we a few friends over for his birthday for the game on Sunday.  It was all so last minute and I have zero pictures to prove that it even happened.  But I will share with you the perfect present for a 34 year old and the “menu” for his falcons party:

criminal plus bdplus  White%20Dr_%20Scholls%20Socks

ski mask for playing “monster” (with kids) + bud light pajama pants + dr. scholls diabetic & circulatory socks (for his feet that need to “breathe” ) = one happy 34 year old

we have always made do with “masks” for playing monster – (which i’m guessing is pretty self explanatory – if not: lights all off, dad is monster, has something over his face to be scary, and hides and kids scream their heads off) but i decided to take it another level by going with the “burglar mask”, i’ll let you know how it goes over: or if you live in a mile radius you may HEAR how it goes.

And lastly, we made 34 notes for jim that we left all over the house in places he would likely visit (beer drawer in fridge, on his shampoo, car door handle, etc.)  It took him 3 days to find them all :)


Kids loved it and so did he.  As he collected, he taped them to the bathroom mirror.

On to the menu:  I kept this simple, easy, and as man friendly as i could.

  • boiled peanuts
  • cheese dip (i’ve listed before but it’s worth mentioning again)

4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

16 oz. sour cream

8 oz. cream cheese (softened)

3 or 4 chopped green onions

2 diced tomatoes

1 Hawaiian bread

mix all together (except for the bread). Cut the top off the bread, dig out the inside and fill the bread with dip.  It can be served hot (oven 350 for 30-45 min) or cold.  Serve with fritos

  • jalapeno poppers

20 jalapenos, cut in half lengthwise, filled with cream cheese, sprinkled with shredded cheddar cheese, wrapped in 1/2 a slice of bacon.  Laid them all out on a cookie sheet and cooked for 15-20 min. on 450.

  • -cupcakes (you know i like the kind in the box)
  • -wings (picked up from Loco’s)

happy footballing :)
