I'm LOVING watching all of these Olympic events and following stories from the athletes. I'm finding myself especially interested in the stories of all of the women and moms in the Olympics this time around. We are watching the games together as a family and I think beach volleyball and gymnastics are my favorite so far. Swimming always stresses me out even though I love it and I'm really excited to check out all of the other events.
What are your favorite events to watch??
I have resisted the urge to decorate my house in red, white and blue, but that hasn't stopped me from making festive treats. I made mini applie pies a few years ago and they were so cute. I'm hoping to find some good apples to make them again this year.
We're cheering on the USA by eating some delicious red, white and blue classic American foods while watching these super athletes compete :) My mouth is watering at this apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream! The kids have been wearing red, white and blue and Olive now shouts, "GO FOR THE GOLD!" at the TV during every event.
All of my instructions can be found here and here's a little sneak peek:
I am also planning to make some all American meals to enjoy during the Olympics. Kevin will do the grilling and I'll plan the sides.
