Astros Playoffs!

Here’s the deal: the Astros don’t make it to the playoffs often. That’s a crazy understatement, but hang with me! So when they do, it’s a BIG deal.

We kept up the stadium food, with chicken in a waffle cone with mashed potatoes. It’s a real thing at Minute Maid Park!

And had nasty nachos again. On “stadium plates.” With a tomato, cause I’m only SO fun…(they like to eat them like apples instead of cut up. It’s weird.)

The Astros introduced these crazy uniforms in 1975, which is “arguably, the most radical uniform redesign in major league history.”

They came to be known as “tequila sunrise” after the famous cocktail:

So when we make anything Astros, it’s tequila sunrise, aka, just mix red, yellow and orange together and Brian’s thrilled!

(Which has me wondering why we don’t make these?? Hmm. It’s on my to do list as of just now!)

These were cake batter truffles.

Brian decided to make Astros bread. (No, he doesn’t cook. Or bake. Well, he makes what the kids say is the BEST EVER mac and cheese. From the blue box…)

I had to fight to not take over and micromanage. Apparently I’m a control freak.

He did it!!

He was VERY proud! It turned out great!

  

He then spent the next 30 minutes telling me how hard it was to make things homemade! 🙂
