Recipe of the Week: Olympics Party!

The Opening Ceremonies for the London Summer Olympics begin tomorrow so we are throwing a little weekend long London celebration!

I can't wait to see the Royal Family, all the sights and sounds of London and some amazing Olympic competition!  USA! USA! USA!

We will be glued to the TV all weekend long!

Below, I've listed our weekend menu and hyper-linked some of my favorite English recipes!
