i may not be a football lover, but i am definitely a packers fan by default through marriage.
can i just tell you i am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy that the packers won the superbowl? countless sundays of marshall’s mood for the following week being determined by whether the packers won or lost.. and it all paid off, because they are the champs.
phew. that was close. thank you for winning, packers, you made my life a lot better.
kristen & rory are amazing and made a packers cheese shaped cake.. isn’t it fantastic??
i was impressed with their skills!
everyone was having fun watching the big game.
i made a few snacks for the game.. not many, because there were only a few of us and i have mastered the talent of not making wayyyy too much food.
apparently marshall & i were missing mexico, because all the eats were totally mexican themed.
i made chicken quesadillas~
i made some with whole wheat tortillas, too.
marshall made his famous guacamole and we served it with chips and mango salsa.
i also made some vegan taco soup.. i simply swapped the meat out of my recipe and replaced it with brown rice. the rice absorbed all the liquid and it became more of a taco chili rather than soup.
i had a bowl of taco soup/chili with a dollop of chobani greek yogurt, some guacamole, cheese and a couple quesadilla wedges.
avocados are so good right now!
i also made a batch of my vegan peanut butter bars for dessert.. but was too busy trying to understand football and didn’t get a photo.
i think i actually understand the game now! too bad the season is over. i hope i don’t forget everything i learned before next year.
before i go, i want to announce the winner of the alexia giveaway:
congrats, erin! send me your mailing address ASAP and i will get your loot shipped out to you. thanks to everyone who entered!
ugh. first day back to work after my lonnnng vacation. that’s going to be rough. to top it off, my boss asked me to go in early AKA 6:30 AM. guess i better call it a night!
i will be back next time with another mexico recap. don’t worry, once i finish all my recaps i will get back to the 30 day challenge. i haven’t forgotten.. it is just on pause.
did you watch the super bowl? who were you rooting for? or did you just watch it for the commercials?
one more thing.. that half time show was HORRIBLE!
