Orange Party

Every year my mom, dad sisters and I pick a game during the Syracuse Men’s basketball season and have a corny little orange party…for ourselves. This year we hadn’t found a good time to do it yet so we did it during the Big East Tournament Semi-Finals. And how fitting to be playing our biggest rivals-Georgetown…and beating them in overtime! It was a bit sentimental because this is the last Big East Tournament ever as the conference is dissolving.  It doesn’t mean much to most people but it is pretty sad for us. Actually tonight marks the last Big East Basketball game ever-the tournament finals and Syracuse will be playing (and hopefully winning!) Last year my mom and I went to NYC for the tournament-a fulfillment of a lifelong dream/plan,  but this Orange Party was the closest we got this year. Man, I wish we could pack up our things and be there tonight to witness history for the last time in the Big East! If only money and logistics weren’t issues!

Our Menu:
Orange Glazed Turkey Meatballs
Shrimp and Cocktail Sauce
Orange Glazed Carrots
Orange Pepper Bruschetta
Pasta Salad (made out of orange and white “s” and Syracuse Mascot pasta)
Carrots and Dip
Cantaloupe balls
Pumpkin Pudding
Orange Whoopie Pies
Sunkist Soda

This probably only means something to us, but I wanted to document it anyway! Oh, disclaimer: we DID allow one Indiana Fan into our party, but he was cute so we made an exception! :) (The boys are Indiana Hoosier Fans in our “split marriage” and the girls are SU fans according to the pre-nup.) Hayleigh is wearing the shirt or “dress” that I wore as a kid. I love the tradition of it all, except Hayleigh is much more clueless about what is happening than I was at her age…and much more excited by cheerleaders. Oh well. Sorry mom. :)
