Kansas City Royals Cocktail and Giveaway

It’s a great time to be a Kansas City Royals fan! Celebrate the World Series with this fun Royals Blue cocktail and a Kansas City Royals t-shirt and hat flash giveaway!

Kansas City Royals World Series Cocktail from dineanddish.net

If you live in Kansas City, you can’t help but to have caught Royals Fever. The Kansas City Royals post season games have been unbelievable! And here we are, in the World Series, which hasn’t happened for this team since 1985.

In fact, I was in 6th grade and I remember I liked a boy who was hugely excited that the Kansas City Royals were facing the St Louis Cardinals in the World Series. I had no clue what any of it meant, because well, I was a 6th grade girl and couldn’t be bothered by that kind of stuff. But, in order to get the attention of said boy, I pretended to be the BIGGEST Kansas City Royals super fan! I have vivid memories of talking to him in the hallway before class started about the games and being all twitter-pated that he was talking to me. Needless to say, the “relationship” didn’t really last much past the world series… I mean a girl can only fain interest in something she is clueless about for so long. I’m sure he eventually caught on.

Flash forward to 2014, and the Kansas City Royals are in the World Series again…and it’s a BIG deal! And again, I’m trying to get the attention of a boy, but this time it’s my 12 year old son. You see, it’s pretty cool when your mom knows a thing or two about sports. And when you can have common interests with your almost teenage son (which means conversations that get him saying more than a yes or no grunt answer), that’s a good thing!

Halloween Party Idea – Frankenguac

A fun Halloween Party Idea using fresh California Avocados to make a quirky and cute guacamole dip shaped like Frankenstein. Meet Frankenguac!

Frankenguac fun halloween party appetizer recipe from dineanddish.net Fun Halloween Food!

Friends… if you know me at all you know I am not cutesy or crafty or “kid food” creative at all. In fact I used to be the food editor for a kid’s food magazine and every time I was assigned to do something cutesy with food, I cringed. I just don’t have that talent like some people do! I love to throw a good Halloween Party but my food is typically pretty standard. Soup, bread, salad… nothing cutesy.

So when my friends at California Avocados challenged us to make a fun halloween party recipe using their fresh, California Avocados, I cringed. Ugh! What was I going to make?  [Continue reading]

Plus, enter to win a Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker Cook & Carry!  I am blaming this Slow Cooker Butterfinger Hot Chocolate recipe on Anna from Crunchy Creamy Sweet.
