Apparently my husband likes football. I mean, hours in front of the TV, the shouting at the TV, the standing up waving arms kind of likes football. We’ve been married just short of 4 years and I had no idea. I remember a friend of my mom’s talking about football once years and years ago. I was a little girl and the conversation has stuck with me all these years. She said that she grew up with her mom steaming in the kitchen every Sunday afternoon while her dad watched football. This friend then said she purposely learned to like football so her future husband and her could get along about it. She ended up marrying a man who liked golf instead but that’s another story. The point was, she did everything she could to be supportive and those wise words from that friend of my mom’s so very very long ago was filed away for some reason to come out and be used now. So I’ve decided to make Sunday unhealthy eating day, where I make a bunch of snacks for my football loving hubby to eat while watching the games. Last Sunday I went to the store and planned a nice snack-meal for my hubby. I didn’t quite make it all the way unhealthy. I’m not sure I have it in me to do that! We had:
Veggies and dip. And no, I didn’t make my own dip. I thought about it, but chances are it wouldn’t go over very well so I bought some. I have a ton left over too, so that might make it into next Sunday as well. 😉 I think Titus ate more of this than anything else! Yay for being healthy!
I also made my mom’s Velveeta cheese dip. People, talk about unhealthy!! But it is sooooooo good! And would be good on just about anything, chips, veggies, baked potato, noodles, you could probably dip chicken in it and bake! I’ve only made this once before, because, let’s face it, I feel my arteries closing on me every time I eat it. Sadly the picture doesn’t do it justice. I’ll admit it resembles dog food, so you’ll just have to trust me on the yumminess of it. 🙂
You have to have a little bit of sweet something on a snack day. Titus went to the store with me and picked these out. Since I was calling it, ‘his day’ I got the box and made them. I’ve had better brownies personally.
I didn’t grow up with football on Sundays. Being a pastor’s kid my daddy took a nap every Sunday afternoon. To be honest, I don’t hate it, but I don’t totally get it either. 😉
Titus said he really enjoyed himself. Which is exactly what I was going for. 🙂 I’d say this first time around was a success. I’m already thinking about what to make for next Sunday!
I love you honey!!
