I went to a lovely Super Bowl party last night hosted by Cagey and her family. Also in attendance were Dorothy and her family. Before the game began, the men talked about work, the kids played and the bloggers discussed plans for attending the various BlogHer conferences this year.
It was a good game and I was glad the Colts won. However, as someone who works in the advertising business, I found the commercials rather disappointing. I didn't take notes, so I'm finding it hard to think of more than a handful that stood out in any way.
So how about a recipe? My contribution to the game day snackfest was a plate of:
Coconut Lime Bars
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened, large flake coconut
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
2 limes, juiced
Zest of one lime
1 drop green food coloring
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cream together butter, 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar and coconut flakes. Press evenly into 9" x 13" pan (I used my BakersEdge pan). Bake for 15-20 minutes.
In a separate bowl, whisk together 1 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, lime juice and zest, eggs and food coloring. Pour over baked crust and return to oven to bake an additional 20 minutes. After the bars have cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into 2" squares.

Everyone seemed to really like this variation on lemon bars. I'm sure I'll make them again.
So how was your weekend?
