This year, momentous events in each of my two favorite sports happened on the same day: the Wimbledon men's singles final and the World Cup final. In fact, they overlapped a bit, the tennis beginning two hours earlier and not quite finishing in time for the soccer to begin. I planned and prepared our mid-day meal with the two events as theme. First, strawberries and cream for Wimbledon, then a Continental lunch platter in honor of France and Croatia.
The only part of the meal I technically "made" was the cream for the strawberries. My wife found a recipe for Mock Devonshire Clotted Cream at RecipeSource. Thankfully, it's a simple concoction easily thrown together in a few minutes. The real deal is a multi-step process over multiple days. It tasted yummy - in fact, too good to remember to take a photo before it was all gone.
For the record, my rooting interests lost in both events. The food was nice, though.
