In honor of quite possibly the weirdest holiday, we watched Groundhog's Day with a theme dinner!
Tim was feeling a bit under the weather so I made some comfort food. Punxsutawney Patties, Phil's Spud-Burrows, Groundhog Nut Mix, Six More Weeks of Winter Hot Chocolate, and Surprise Shadow Dessert.
Punxsutawney Patties were just cooked up sausage patties from the store.
I got the idea for this site but she didn't list directions or ingredients so I got a little creative! http://secretsofasupermommy.blogspot.com/2010/02/silly-socks-valentines-day-advent.html
Two large Potatoes
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees
Cut the potatoes in half
Slice the potatoes in small slivers that can stack on top of each other
Put the potatoes in their stacks in your pan (I used a casserole pan)
Cover lightly with Olive Oil
Season to your own taste with pepper, salt, chives, and lemon juice
Put in the oven to 40 minutes
Groundhog nut mix just a prepackaged mix!
Six More Weeks of Winter:
Hot Chocolate Mix and prepare accordingly
Add a splash of Vanilla Vodka, Creme de Cacao, and Malibu
It will literally make you want to sleep for six more weeks!
Surprise Shadow Dessert:
Chocolate Vanilla Swirl Pudding
Using a food processor, crush up about 10 oreos
Open your pudding and top it off with the oreos
Then stick a teddy graham in!
I found a picture on Pinterest and got inspired! http://playtimewithmommy.blogspot.com/2011/02/groundhog-day-treat.html
It was a fun dinner!!
