Summer Olympics 2012

The Summer Olympics start this evening at 9pm est with the Opening Ceremonies and run until Sunday, August 12th. For a complete listing of all sporting times and schedules, click HERE.  Our family likes to watch them; however, we don't usually have any parties surrounding them or watch them on a consistent basis but my favorite sport to watch is gymnastics. While looking for information on the schedule I came across this list for how much food is needed...amazing!
  • 25,000 loaves of bread
  • 232 tonnes of potatoes
  • More than 82 tonnes of seafood
  • 31 tonnes of poultry items
  • More than 100 tonnes of meat
  • 75,000 litres of milk
  • 19 tonnes of eggs
  • 21 tonnes of cheese
  • More than 330 tonnes of fruit and vegetables

So, since I'm from the good old US of A, I thought I'd share some red, white and blue recipes with you in case you're entertaining this weekend. Click on the title to be taken to the recipe. Enjoy!
