Are you ready for some football???

Playoffs!!!!

Although my beloved New York Football Giants aren't playing this weekend, I'm still in playoffs mode. The hubs and I are having a few friends over for today's games. Of course I took this as an excuse to bake a new dessert. I was completely inspired by The Good Wife and made a batch of Buckeyes. I didn't use her recipe because I didn't think I needed 8 dozen and I balked at the idea of 6 cups of powered sugar. I love sugar as much as the next person, but my teeth hurt just thinking of all that powdered sugar.

Besides the tasty Buckeyes (four were sampled today and earned high praise from the hubs and that definitely wasn't one of those white lie moments), we'll have the normal football fare- bacon cheese fries, pizza, chicken wings, beer, chips, dip, veggies and whatever my brother-in-law decides to bring. Good thing the I started up running again, I'm going to need to run a marathon every day just so I can continue to fit into my clothes!
