I took a few day hiatus recently…the hubs and I had a few days off together and I just decided to unplug and enjoy our days. It was much needed because it doesn’t happen very often. I feel like there have been a ton of ‘marriage’ articles and posts out there lately about how important it is to work on relationships and to truly be present with one another…and it’s definitely something that I think is important. I find it too easy to let the craziness of life get in the way of what’s really important and I really want to work on always putting our marriage first. Okay, so enough with the sappy love stuff!
Let’s move onto an important topic for this Monday. The Superbowl. Are you all at work with Superbowl hangovers? Fortunately, I have the day off today…but, even if I did have to work, I would have been fine since the game was less-than-stellar. I have always been a Denver Broncos fan so rooting for them was a no-brainer. Um, that was until they decided not to show up for the game. How does that even happen? Regardless, I will wear my Denver blue and orange nails with pride for one more day to celebrate their awesome season.
Even though the game was super disappointing, our food and company were not. Our friends, Bridget and BJ, had a get-together at their house for a few of our close friends and family. There was a ton of food there!…pizza, chili, bacon-wrapped mini hot-dogs, homemade meatballs, cream cheese and bacon-wrapped shrimp, pasta salad, and various dips, salsas, and chips. My two contributions were a Chicken Cordon Bleu crescent ring and Chocolate-Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Treat footballs. I like to always break out the chocolate footballs for the Superbowl. Also, every year, I am reminded why I never make rice krispie treats…I hate working with sticky stuff and trying to get the marshmallow cream to coat the cereal is, honestly, one of the worst things I’ve ever experienced. I always forget until I have to make them…and then I remember that it’s awful. Oh well. The ending product is yummy so it all works out!
I found the recipe for the footballs online a few years ago and I got the Cordon Bleu ring recipe from my most recent issue of Simple and Delicious…one of mine and my mom’s favorite magazines! You can find the recipe for the footballs here and the recipe for the crescent ring here. Make them both. You won’t be sorry.
Even though the game was a bust, the great food and even better friends made up for it and we had a wonderful evening! I still have two more days off from work while Lee only has one so, today, we will probably work together to get some things done around the house. He had to run into work for a couple of hours to get a search warrant (the life of a police officer…you are never really off) but should be back soon. It’s another snowy day around here so staying warm inside sounds like the best option!
Enjoy your day!
Something to share: Who were you rooting for yesterday? Did you have anything exceptionally good to eat this weekend?
