game day | fridays with oscar

it’s finally Friday gang! it’s hard to believe it’s the last day of January 2020. February is going to be an exciting month as we will be exploring all things travel. tips and tricks, new destinations and revisiting vacations gone by – it’s going to be a lot of fun, you won’t want to miss it! as for today on friday’s with oscar, we are getting ready for the big game this Sunday. we have a great super bowl appetizer idea that’s keto-friendly for your game day spread and an easy beer cocktail to give your regular ol’ beer a little team color and pizazz. 

outfit of the day 

per usual, we are going casual today. classic chinos with a twist: these J.Crew chinos (similar here and here) have metallic gold dots, just a little touch of team spirit for game day! chinos are easy to pair with anything, but today i kept it simple with a black cardigan.

and of course, my favorite go-to when it comes to chic, basic footwear: ballet flats (one of my four B’s!). these are Tory Burch and add just the right amount of sophistication to a casual ootd. 

appetizer for the win: Buffalo chicken celery boats

do you love the flavor of Buffalo hot wings, but want to skip the unhealthy fried food this Super Bowl Sunday? this recipe is just the ticket, it combines all the Buffalo-style hot wing flavors in one crunchy bite. keto-friendly and so easy because the recipe calls for a store-bought rotisserie chicken. i made it according to the recipe, but you could certainly dial up or down the hot sauce or the mayonnaise. you can omit the ranch dressing or the blue cheese crumbles, it’s totally up to you – make it your own! it will be a winner no matter what.

the Red Vespa cocktail 

this cocktail is a no-brainer for this Super Bowl, regardless of which team everyone is rooting for, the red/orange color of this easy beer cocktail will appeal to both sides. the recipe calls for a citrus bitter liqueur called Contratto, which i was unable to find here in Athens, so i substituted with Campari. you can also substitute with Aperol. this cocktail is basically the beer version of an Aperol spritz (one of my favorite cocktails!). it’s light and refreshing – just perfect for adding a little glam to the Super Bowl festivities.

    Oh my goodness Beth. I thought Ollie was just an ordinary cat. What a lion! Are you sure Ollie is a domestic cat and not a mountain cat? And beautiful colouring too. But, I have to say my first true love is Oscar…especially when he yawns!
