Oscar Night: Plan your FAB Menu!

I wasn't aware, until I saw the poster today, that Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin were hosting this year's Academy Awards.

That's gonna be fun AND funny!

The 82nd Annual Academy Awards (aka "Oscar Night") airs LIVE on ABC Sunday, March 7th 8:00pm EST/5:00pm PT. Click here for details on this and other Oscar Week events.

Planning a viewing party for "Oscar Night"? If so, Easy Leaf Products has a few delicious ideas to try. These are suitable for the less formal/more relaxed/still FAB crowd. Many want to enjoy the show, minus the suit and tie. I'll be posting the recipes during the upcoming weeks leading up to Oscar Night. (Hence the recipe forthcoming remark.)

Consider that your Countdown. (Sorta)
