May the Funfetti be with you….

We had a CRAZY busy weekend this weekend. Friday was MDP’s 40th birthday. The skids came over and we took him to our new favorite place to eat and inhaled food (I had the Peanut Butter Bacon Burger which may sound gross to you but is totally awesome). Then we were off to hockey to burn that burger off. :)

Saturday was of course Groundhog’s Day which if you are a long time follower of this blog you know it’s my favorite holiday of all time. So I got my well wishes and had my traditional sprinkle donut and Chinese food. We also very excitingly got to run errands and took in 9 year old basketball.

Sunday while everyone else was getting excited about football we went and played an hour and 45 minutes of pick up hockey and then off to a Super Bowl Party. I didn’t spend any time watching the game. I mostly chatted people’s ears off especially the guy who was named after Star Wars! His sister too. That is so what would have happened to my kids. He couldn’t dispute my genuine excitement for his name as I was wearing an Empire Strikes Back t-shirt. :P

Since it was MDP’s birthday all the food (well all the sweet food) I made for Super Bowl had a birthday theme. And so came along Birthday Cake Caramel Corn. It’s addictive and bad for you and I didn’t care because I had skated a bazillion calories away at hockey. It’s today when I have no hockey that it sticks to my hips. :D Oh well

Isn’t my Groundhog Day card cute? The skids got me that. :)

  1. Ohhhhh I love birthday cake/cake batter anything!

  2. I would never have thought to put sprinkles ( cake batter mix!) on popcorn. But it shouldn’t surprise me that you did! Very fun and festive.

  3. Yummy!!

    I’ve never heard of Groundhog Day being a favorite holiday before, love it.

  4. I hope MDP had a happy birthday! You certainly spoiled him. I wonder if I couldn’t mix caramel into sweet corn ice cream, then put a funfetti swirl through it, and toss some of this popcorn into it. Yum, I think I need to try that! :)

    Naming people after Star Wars FTW. People should all name their kids after what they’re nerds for. :D And I have to beg you to please, please tell me whence this Peanut Butter Bacon Burger came. I know my oldest brother would love one so much.

  5. What an awesome caramel corn! And my nephew was named after Luke Skywalker… and my sister in law’s recently deceased grandmother Lucy.

  6. Oh by this looks really good :)

    Happy Belated Groundhog’s Day!

  7. Hummm! Peanut Butter Bacon Burger? I think you should totally recreate that! Oh and I knew a guy who named his son and daughter from Star Wars… betcha can’t guess what their names were!?! ; )

    Oh and you can never go wrong with cake batter ANY thing in my book!

  8. Woman you are a genius! I love you!!!

  9. Wow this would make a great snack! Caramel popcorn alone is delicious, I can’t imagine how good this must taste.

  10. While visiting our son in San Diego, we went to Slaters 50/50 (actually in Point Loma). I ordered the peanut butter and jelly bacon burger, which they said was one of the best sellers. It was awesome! It sounds strange but was really tasty. Your birthday cake caramel corn looks and sounds delicious. Thanks for so many tasty treat ideas.
