It's some kind of ridiculous need to overfeed people who come to my house. I know I am doing it, but I can't seem to stop. I also have to make absolutely everything entirely myself. Again, I know it's fine to buy things not homemade, but somehow can't convince myself to do it when I'm entertaining. As a result, my Thanksgiving/Christmas is heinous every year because I spend all day cooking/baking. I bake like 12-15 dozen cookies every year, too.
And, for the Super Bowl tomorrow, I have us, my mom, my stepdad, and my dad to feed. So, a total of four adults and five kids (ack, we're outnumbered!). I am making:
Chili con carne
Homemade corn bread w/ honey butter
Sliders w/ both beef and veggie burgers w/ homemade garlic aoili
Homemade buffalo wings w/ homemade blue cheese
Homemade soft pretzels w/ homemade cheese sauce
Red velvet cupcakes w/ white chocolate cream cheese frosting (decorated for the Cardinals)
Devil's food cupcakes w/ vanilla buttercream frosting (decorated for the Steeler's)
Is there a 12-step program for the need to be Martha Freaking Stewart every time people set foot in my home? I need it. I make myself miserable and exhausted and can't stop!
