Announcing an Event - Game Night Party Recipes


Hi everyone! The holidays are over, and the New year has begun, so it's time to start with some more fun! Have you seen people discussing and planning to buy HDTV's (High-Definition TV) lately, and switching from Dish or Cable to DirecTV?? Well, that's because it's the sporty time of the year, and the biggest event in United States is around the corner - YES, the mighty NFL Super Bowl to be played on Feb 3rd 2008 in Arizona!! I will admit it upfront, I'm not a huge fan of NFL, simply because I think it's too violent:) But I do like the strategy part in the game, and believe it or not, when you have a group of friends and enthusiasts surrounding you in your room, rooting at every shot, you are sure to get carried away by the excitement in the atmosphere! So, before you start thinking why I'm blabbbering about Super Bowl on my Food Blog, let me tell you about my intention to host a "Game Night Party" event. Even in India and Australia, Cricket is on in full-swing, and for most of the people, irrespective of their location, Friday Nights are generally Poker Nights!:)

So, in celebration of Sports, I have decided to host an Event which will gather simple yet delicious recipes that can help you plan a stress-free Game Night. I also know that a lot of events are out there in the blogosphere, and it can get tiring to keep up with all of them. So I am tweaking the rules a bit here to allow for previously-posted recipes. The purpose of this Event is to gather and share party recipe ideas so that it's beneficial to everyone; I don't want to stress my blogger friends and readers than they already are:) So go on, read the rules, and start sending in your Favourite Simple and Quick-to-Make Recipes!

This event is completed. Please take a look at the Game Night Party Recipes Roundup for some delicious, and easy finger-food recipes! Thanks everyone for participating!

But NFL is on Feb 3rd, deadline is before that!! I am making cheese Fondue this year!
Usually, I make Mexican food or chicken wings anyway, so it doesn't matter. I will see if I have any veg ones in my blog or I will make one for you!:)
We didn't understand Football at first either and then we got huge HD TV and then everything changed, we love it now, specially kids enjoy the game ad the food too!!They get to eat in the living room sitting on the carpet on that day!:P
Congratulations on winning the beautiful book!:)

Sounds like lots of fun Mansi! Looks liek this is my first time here... unless u changed the look of the blog anytime recently :-) You have a lovely blog! And i'll try my best to participate in this fun event!

Ben said...

I am in! I first thought about the pumpkin enchiladas but they wouldn't be too easy to prepare on the big night. It's not that they are real difficult to make, it is just messy. Maybe some kind of veggie molletes? Is cheese allowed? I don't think so, well I will have to think about this. I like it when it is really a challenge.

Great blog, sorry it took me so long to come visit but with so many new projects for the new year time has been tight, but I am subscribing right now. BTW congratulations on the award, those cookies look delicious!

Mansi Desai said...

Hi Latha - welcome girl, and great to know you are participating!

Ben - cheese is totally allowed! and thanks for bringing it to my attention; just no meat or seafood:) looking forward to your entry, and thanks for all the kind words, and for sparing some time to comment:D

Angel said...

looks good Mansi:) so eggs and cheese both are allowed, right? I'll come up with something

Hi Mansi, thanks for your invitation and sweet comments on our blog! I've never watched Super Bowl, but I did go to a European football match once, and it was pretty interesting! I think we had muffins as a snack then, and the other spectators were mostly having grilled sausages...

Your blog is just lovely, I'll check back soon!

-Anni.
