Football Food

Don't forget to mail out your Sweetheart Swap packages by tomorrow!  
Our link-up will be on Thursday, Feburary 13th!

Skirt: LOFT // Sweater: The Limited 
(My fancy ponytail looked much better at 7am…at least that's what I told myself.)

The sickness will just not leave this house.  The general rule of thumb is that I bring the diseased germs home from school, I get sick, then Scott gets sick.  He always gets it 3 times as bad as me.  While I'm on the road to being able to breathe and speak normally (though I do succumb to a coughing fit after my daily cold smoothie…), he's still on the couch.  

I doubt we'll be doing anything fancy this weekend (and honestly, doesn't today feel like it should be freaking Saturday already?).  I plan on putting the finishing touches on my swap packages (sorry guys…I'll see the post office come Monday), maybe a light workout, some organization around this place, and some sleep.  

Apparently there's a Superbowl this weekend.

I haven't watched a Superbowl since 2011.  The Steelers lost to the Packers and Caleb, the Patriots fan in my 4th grade class that year, never let me forget it.  

However, if I was having a Superbowl party, this is what I'd want to eat…

Guacamole. You can't go wrong.

Black Bean Salsa.  Our favorite!

Jalapeño Popper Dip.  This one really impresses the guests.

White Chicken Chili.  My favorite kind of chili.

Buffalo Chicken Stew. Easy as can be in the slow-cooker.

Pizza. Obviously.

S'mores Fondue.  There are no words.

Ice Cream Cake. Birthday Cake-flavored or Peanut Butter

No-Bake Cookies I made these for the Superbowl in 2010, and had to pawn half off on the neighbors.

…and the ever-popular Cookie in a Skillet.  

You use the big game as an excuse to make football food too, right?  What are you making?


  1. I decided last minute to go to a party at a friend's, Sunday. Jason has been sick too, and so he wants to stay in and actually watch the game. Since I'm STILL on the Whole 30, I'm bringing guacamole w/ veggies, and wings, baked. Exciting times, huh? LOL

  2. We're headed to a friends party and I actually don't have to make anything, which is fine by me! I usually do make something and he has enough to feed an army so he told me this year we didn't have to. So I'm going listen, ha!

    GO DENVER - gotta start rooting for those teams you'll be living in the state for ;)

  3. First of all: that outfit is PERFECTION! Your pony looks so sweet and fancy! I can never pull off a fancy pony. My ears stick out way too much.

    I'm sorry you guys are sick!!

    Thank you SO much for this post. I implemented (as of yesterday) dinners at the kitchen table sans technology (thanks to my 30 by 30 list--it'll be on the blog soon) and I'm really glad I did. Because that's when the husband decided to tell me that he invited the GAs over for the game. That's 6 former football players. I'll make all of this. It's like you just wrote the menu for me ;) :) Thank you!

  4. These all sound yummy! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Jalapeno poppers with crescent rolls, homemade sloppy joes, veggies and dip, pick & peel shrimp here!

    Is scott 3x sicker because he actually is or because men have difficulty handling illness and functioning?

  6. I am actually interested in the SB this year. ;)

    I think I'm going to live stream it on Sunday, if I can. Our movie theater is going to be broadcasting it but Isaiah is out of town and I don't want to go alone. And, you know, no friends, so...home alone watching the SB while I paint cabinets it is.

  7. LOVE that outfit! It is likely that I will have the Super Bowl on as background noise while I work on the tons of school work that I have to do!


Comments make my day!
