Tonight is game one of State of Origin – a state vs state game of rugby league that makes Adam as excited as a school boy.  So, it’s quite fitting that tonight we have a bunch of his school friends coming over to watch the game.  I have to make a confession that I’ve lost interest in state of origin in past years, but I still find it a great excuse to get together with friends you may not have seen in a while and eat tasty, footy food.  I wanted to make substantial finger food that could all be prepared in advance so I can catch up with everyone and not be stuck in the kitchen while they’re watching the game.  These are some of my go-to finger food menu items – so I’ve included the recipes I use if you click on the links below.

    Oh my goodness! These all look absolutely delicious, I’m going to have to give them a try.
    I’m like you, lost interest in the State of Origin a long time ago, must be a man thing!
