We had a big night planned for the Olympic Opening Ceremonies.
We planned to watch the ceremonies while eating Fish & Chips (a popular meal in London) and holding our paper Olympic torches.
but then… a big storm blew through our town
The storm knocked down this tree and knocked out our power 😦
so our Olympic party started the day after the opening ceremonies 🙂
we ate Fish & Chips
There really couldn’t be and easier meal.
I used frozen Beer Batter Fish and Frozen Steak Fries. I baked both.
We made our paper torches
These were so easy to make.
- construction paper; black, orange & red
you just rolled the black paper into a cone, and taped it shut and cut out the flames with the orange and red paper and use tape again to put the flames into the cone.
so even though we got off to a rough start we are still planning on have tons of fun watching the Olympics.
next up, we are planning 12 different menus each one representing a different country.
we chose 12 because it is 2012 😉
of course all of these dishes will be simple, budget friendly and in no way “authentic”… they are just meant to be a fun and creative way to celebrate the Olympics.
