UW vs Boise State   4 comments

Steve and I had the privilege of going to the UW vs Boise State game today at the Husky Stadium. These were not your ordinary tickets.  So first we drove into Seattle with the rest of the Husky and Bronco fans but we didn’t have to drive straight to the stadium and look for a parking spot:


Our tickets included brunch at McCormick and Schmick’s and a water cruise to the Husky Stadium!


We arrived at the stadium and oh my, what an experience to arrive from the water.  There were all sorts of boats and people having stern parties and fans everywhere!  The pre-game festivities were great.


We enjoyed the game seated 10 rows up from the field at the 40 yard line! The Huskies beat Boise State 24 to 10!  Here are some game highlights:


We then returned on the water cruise back to the restaurant.  The weather was glorious today!  Of course I only took 248 pictures! 


Did I mention that the weather was glorious and that the Huskies won? Go Dawgs!

Rolo ® Cookies

2 1/4 c. flour
3/4 c. cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
½ c. sugar
½ c. packed brown sugar
1 c. butter, softened
2 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 c. chopped nuts (your choice)
48 Rolo ® candies (milk chocolate covered caramel)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl, combine flour, cocoa, and soda; blend well. In large bowl, beat sugars and butter until fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Slowly add flour mixture; blend well. Stir in nuts. Chill dough in the refrigerator or just go for it! For each cookie with floured hands, shape about 1 tablespoon dough around caramel candy, covering completely. Place on ungreased sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 7 to 9 minutes. Cool slightly and remove from sheets. 48 cookies.

A side note!  I reduced the sugar in these cookies.  If you want sweeter cookies up the sugars to 1 cup each – YIKES!
