Menu: Phillies in the World Series Game 1!!!


My PhillyBoy is obviously very happy that the Phillies are in the World Series. What does that mean? Our friends are coming over for Game 1! While I am not the biggest sports fan, I am super excited that MY team (yes, I am a PhillyGirl too now) is in the World Series and even more excited that we are having a small party! Since it is in the middle of the week and after dinnertime we are keeping it light and simple. You can use a menu like this for any tailgating party or football party. I just asked PB what to call a “football party” and he just laughed and called me a little foreigner. I guess growing up as a first generation American does have its disadvantages!!!! Anyway, here is what we plan on serving at our baseball party:

  11. Love your schedule.. so organized you are!! Sounds fun…my sister -in-law lives in Ardmore and got tickets to the game.. she is stoked! Enjoy pretending to watch.. lol πŸ™‚

  12. Your menu looks delicious – definitely ‘crowd pleasing’ fare πŸ™‚ I hope you enjoy the games, baseball is slow – but the payoff can be great! Go Phillies! I’m going to the WS games in Philly and I can’t wait.

  13. Josh is thrilled too! What a great menu- can we come over??
