A cup of peanuts for the foodies

The Soccer Euro Cup will start very soon (next Saturday) and that along side with a lot of shouting means one thing: snacks!

I love soccer! This love started when I was very young, my dad started taking me with him to the stadium when I was only 6. During many years those sunday afternoons where we would go cheer for our team were the highlights of my weeks. Now I don't go as often as I would like, daddy is not here anymore to take me, and going without him will never be the same but still I love the stadium atmosphere and try to go when I can.

Besides my team I'm a huge supporter of my national team! In fact my all country is, the country stops whenever there's a big competicion like the one that is about to start. We put flags everywhere, dress in the colors of the flag, stop working to watch the games, get together to watch them, scream, laugh and cry when we loose. We are pretty passionate about soccer arround here!

I've made these peanuts today so me and my friends can have something to munch when watching the games. The recipe is the same as this one, just change the sunflower seeds for peanuts or any other nut. They're sooooo good!

I also want to share these peanuts with all my fellow foodies from the Foodie BlogRoll that I've recently joined. Thanks to Jenn for creating this! If you want to join it just follow the link on my side bar.

Lastly I would like to invite all of you to vote and guess who will be the next European soccer champion (voting is happening on my sidebar). When the Cup is over I'll make a dessert or something sweet that is tradicional from the winning country, so stay tunned!

Mmmm, do you take votes for the dessert as well? I don't think our national team will win but if (big IF here!) that happens I'll make a traditional dessert too. Is that a deal? ;)

Força Portugal!!

I'm happy that you're happy about soccer. It's not appreciated enough, you know? Like tennis.
Now that's a sport. It's really fun.

Emiline- Oh yes soccer is not really apreciated in the US. But sports popular there, don't get any attencion here, like basebol.

Just found your site...peanuts look delicious! I am cheering for Portugal here in California (both of my parents were Portuguese).

Clumbsy Cookie said...

OH MY GOD!!!! I *need* these peanuts right now! I'm not a big soccer fan, but I'd happily savor these peanuts watching a good movie... ;o)
Thanks for sharing such a great recipe!

Cinara estes não levam mel, mas se quiseres rouba um bocadinho ao açucar e junta mel e assim vais ter um clone mais parecido com os que tu gostas!
