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!
