A Dinner of Olympic Proportions!

The Olympic rings are seen in front of the airport of Sochi, the host city for the Sochi 2014 Winter OlympicsI love the Olympics, as I’m sure you do, too.  My favorite Olympic memory is from when I was a kid, around the age of 7 or 8, I think.  My parents let us stay up waaaay late to watch Kristi Yamaguchi and eat cookies & cream ice cream.  It was awesome!

Anyway, so because I love the Olympics and because I love a good excuse to be festive, we had tacos for dinner as we watched the opening ceremony.  I know you’re wondering how tacos could be festive for winter Olympics hosted in Russia.Olympic Tacos 005

The colors of these ingredients match up to the ring colors!  Yellow = cheese and shells, black = beef and black olives, green = lettuce, red = tomatoes and salsa!  I had been bummed for a few days that I couldn’t figure out how to work blue into tacos.  Sean came up with the genius idea of food coloring the sour cream!  Olympic Tacos 004That guy!  Always willing to play along with my ideas and get just as (or at least pretty close to just as) excited.Olympic Tacos 007These are Sean’s.  He really knows how to make tacos look good, doesn’t he?  In another life he must have been a chef, restaurateur, food stylist, something.  He’s really got a touch.Olympic Tacos 006I did not have any of those jobs in another life.

Did you watch the Olympic opening ceremony?  It was a little boring, no?  I hate to admit this but we switched to Downton Abbey after seeing the US enter.  But we’ve been enjoying the actual games ever since.  Ski jumping!  How amazing is that?  I don’t ever remember watching ski jumping in the past.  If I were to do my life all over again, I would be a ski jumper so that I could have the sensation of flying without wings or airplanes.
