Draughts at the Draft

These little town blues
Are melting away
I’ll make a brand new start of it
In old New York

The NFL Draft is my sports Christmas. The pagentry. The suspense. The crazy suits. You just can’t beat it. Last year was our inaugural Draughts at the Draft party, and I am so excited for the second installment. This year themed food and Bingo have been added to the mix. I wanted to share what I am working on before the event in case you would like to select a bingo card and play along at home or print some off for your own gathering.

My current plan is to serve several 1st round draftee inspired dishes, all of which have a link to my Pinterest inspiration.

Sammy Watkins “Special Brownies”

Anthony Cookie Barrs

Johnny Football’s “Signature” Chips and Salsa

Blake Bortleaise Toasts – this doesn’t have a clear connection to the pin I posted, but how can you not make something with Bordelaise when the kids last name is Bortles?!

Justin Gilbert Grape, Blue Cheese & Honey Crostini

So that’s the plan, I will post pictures hopefully on Friday and let you know how it all worked out.

  1. I tend not to leave a great deal of comments, however
    i did some searching and wound up here Draughts at the
    Draft | Cooktestant. And I do have a couple of questions for
    you if you tend not to mind. Is it simply me or does it appear like some of these comments look like left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep
    up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a
    list of the complete urls of your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  2. continuously i used to read smaller articles that also clear their motive,
    and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading at this
    time.

  3. Have you ever considered about including a little
    bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
    Nevertheless think of if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and clips,
    this site could definitely be one of the greatest in its niche.

    Amazing blog!

  4. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to
    get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but
    I’m not seeing very good results. If you know of
    any please share. Cheers!

  5. Please let me know if you’re looking for a article writer for your
    weblog. You have some really great articles and I think I would be a good asset.

    If you ever want to take some of the load off,
    I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back
    to mine. Please send me an email if interested.

    Kudos!

  6. Wow that was odd. I just wrote an incredibly long comment but
    after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up.
    Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Regardless,
    just wanted to say great blog!
