We also had pigs in a blanket. These were previously frozen and I just baked them in the oven, so I can't really take credit for making them. They were good dipped in some dijon mustard.
I also made a buffalo chicken blue cheese dip. I'll put that recipe in another post because I'm too lazy to go find the recipe at the moment.
For our "main" meal, we had burgers and baked sweet potato fries. I had a regular burger with toppings but I made Mark a blue-cheese stuffed burger. I always use this recipe by Paula Deen for the fries (ironic that a recipe from her is kind of healthy). They are easy to make, but as they approach the final minutes in the oven, you have to watch them carefully. There is only a small time window when they go from perfect to totally burnt.
