Hello friends and HAPPY NFL THURSDAY NIGHT GAME DAY!
Yep! The Bengals play tonight, and your girl is hosting a Bengals watch party!!!!
I am SO EXCITED! We’ve got our Christmas tree up, the Bengals on TV, and some wonderful friends and family coming over to watch Joe Burrow hopefully beat the pants off Baltimore!
Talk about a 10/10 day!
This will be the SECOND party we’ve hosted in the last four days! Yep — we hosted ANOTHER party here on Saturday.
(Steven and I have always LOVED hosting, even in NYC when we had teeny tiny apartments!) So now that we have the room, we’re taking advantage of it!
Aren’t I stressed? Or overwhelmed with hosting?!
Because I have hosting down to a science. And I’m going to share with you exactly how I do it! And BONUS: It’s a gluten-free-friendly affair, without depriving the gluten-full people their cookies…literally.
SO: I make a BEAUTIFUL veggie tray, with hummus to dip.
Along with that, I make a legendary charcuterie board, complete with prosciutto, three different types of cheeses, grapes, pistachios, and gluten free crackers!
I also have bowls of popcorn– (this black and white fudge drizze is out of this world!), chips, and pistachios.
And then so my gluten-full folks (because you know they’ll complain….haha juuuuust kidding…) I make some of my famous peanut butter cup cookies. And I’ll put out either some store bought GF cookies or plain peanut butter cups for my gluten-free folks for dessert.
And there you have it! It is SO easy. I guarantee you already have most of these items in your fridge. And I just keep an extra block of brie cheese in the fridge in case a spur of the moment get together arises!
Let’s GO BENGALS!!! Let’s hope we pull out a win tonight!!!
