Super Bowl Stuff and Such...

We decided to have a few friends over to watch the Super Bowl and I decided to attempt a semi-hard looking recipe for Soft Pretzel Bites from What's Gaby Cooking.  It wasn't that it was really complex, it just seemed to have a lot of steps.  I got to use my dough hook for the first time and there was even a fun step where you poured baking soda into a pot of boiling water.  You can check out the recipe for more details.
My final picture isn't great but they tasted really good and surprisingly pretzel like.  It was a long process but worth it.

We had a ton of other food as per usual.  B made some delightful blue cheese stuffed sliders.
I missed most of the commercials but I had a good reason.....
There was a baby there! It's my new mini BFF, KMU (we will call her that for the time being, I don't want her to get too famous too fast, Suri Cruise style). Beezus5 had a baby on her exact due date and her first outing was to my basement for some football.  I'm pretty sure Hobie thought she was a giant burrito.
"Hobie, this is not food, it's a tiny person."
Look at her pretty hair.
 I'm such a natural with babies....well I'm working on it.
Telling her stories about her mom from the olden days.
So that was my Super Bowl experience. 
What did you do?
Did you bake anything?
Did any new babies attend your Super Bowl Party?

That is one good looking baby! Looks like KMU enjoyed her first Super Bowl.

Kmu said it was a chic affair and she praised the pretzel flavored breastmilk.

I think Hobie is totally jealous of your new BFF ... or you're right and he thinks she's a burrito. That's a lovely 1st outing! Way to host a yummy and baby friendly partay. I love pretzel bites too. However, I don't have any such hook to make them. All in all, nice super bowling!

Hobie was more like, "Y'all know that thing pooped, don't you?" The pretzal bites were really good though. all the food was.
