Way back when, I told you all that I play bunco and I was the to be the hostess for February! So….. I decided to do my What I Ate Wednesday with what I made for the special night!
Usually the hostess makes dinner & dessert, provides snacks, and a great place to have fun. I wanted to spruce it up this month and I planned bunco around BRUNCH. Who doesn’t like brunch food? Especially when it is being had at 6pm. Does that make it a BUNCO BRINNER? Maybe, but I still went with brunch.
Sidenote::: pajamas were required 🙂

**Somehow I didn’t get a pic of the mimosas… I blame it on the champagne 😉
Dinner was a family speciality of mine. It has been passed down on my mom’s side of the family forever. We call it “Christmas Breakfast.” (recipe at the bottom!!!) I am sure it is really called Ham & Cheese Casserole or something rather… Christmas Breakfast is just easy.
Along with Christmas breakfast, I served bacon and sausage. (Pork lovin, are we?)
For a nice little carbohydrate to go with our protein, I made Whole Wheat Blueberry Muffins with CHOBANI! (Recipe coming soon!!)
A nice little fruit salad accompanied dinner with cantaloupe honeydew melon, grapes, strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries. It was juicy and refreshing. Much needed with the other heavy dinner components.
While we played, snacks were placed on the three tables in cute little San Diego Padre hats. (baseball season is almost here & I LOVE the baseball game environment!) These snackys included pretzels, dark chocolate covered almonds & raisins, sour gummy bears, trail mix, and robin eggs.. ya know, the malt ball ones. YUM-O!
Dessert was rather tasty… It came in the form of a Key Lime Pie with a homemade graham cracker crust… I use Oprah’s Mar-a-Lago Key Lime Pie recipe (it’s my momma’s fave)
Along with the pie we had chocolate-covered strawberries!! (always a hit & super easy to make at home)
There ya have it! It was an exciting night had by all.. I even won $20!
