Friday

{easy antipasto platter}

It's snowing slightly in NYC today and supposedly we are getting some real snow for Monday. I'm not sure that it will be of Snowmageddon levels, but perhaps another snow day is in the works? I'm not counting on it, but I wouldn't mind it either :) This weekend we will celebrate Penelope's 2nd birthday with a small dinner tomorrow evening and Sunday we'll curl up on the couch with chips and dips for the Superbowl. I don't have any skin in the Superbowl game this year, however, I can't help but root for the Seahawks. Regardless of who's playing, I always enjoy the food. I'm not sure what we'll be making this year, but I know for sure that a cheese board and pizza dip will be on the menu! I hope you have a wonderful and warm weekend!

What are your plans for the Superbowl?

Though I didn't do five things this week, here are some links I loved!
