Score BIG!

Two years ago our basement was transformed into a more "livable" space. Oh, it was lively before that, playing host to many kid-friendly parties, but as our kids grow older, their toys grow more expensive. The basement transformation began when Sara purchased a ceiling mounted projector and 8 foot screen. Next came Michael's surround sound system, and before we knew what hit us, we were hiring a contractor to insulate and sheetrock. Carpet was laid. Thanks to my brother Gary, the ceiling was hung, and our media center was born! 

Our family started a new tradition of inviting family over for a Sunday afternoon Vikings football game, in our new "theater." We eat, cheer, and eat some more.  Two years ago the menu was barbeque and picnic food. Last year it was a baked potato bar with all the trimmings. What will it be this year? Veggies and dip always  "score" big with our family. Midwest Dairy Association can answer the question of "What kind of dip shall we make?" Any suggestions for the rest of the menu? Leave a comment. I'm open to suggestions. Touchdown!


  1. Dena and I vote for Hot Bacon Dip! Mmmmm!

  2. Sounds good! I'll record your vote. We're thinking the game againest "da Bears!"
