Well....make that a big sigh.
Hubs is deploying again. Short notice. Unexpected....and sucks to say the least. We are having our housewarming party this weekend (welcome to the area, nice to meet you, see you in half a year). BAH.
But anyway....this is my first time living on the West Coast. And NFL games start....at 10 am. 10 am! Its crazy! We now have to do football brunch/breakfasts instead of the normal late afternoon stuff your face snacks.
And oh yeah, Im still on a diet.
So far here is our menu:
Husbands Sausage Gravy (which actually isnt that bad because he adds chopped mushrooms and uses skim milk)
Buttermilk biscuits from scratch (no canned biscuits allowed in my house per husbands orders)
Kolaches or pigs in a blanket
little smokies wrapped in bacon
But wait...that covers the morning game. what the afternoon one that starts at oh say 2? This means I will have to segway into a new menu...so more cooking and planning.
Chili/Pepperoncini Beef or whatever else. It is currently in debate between us. Whatever it is, it needs to be freezable because I know people wont eat as much as I think they will!
Veggies (yeah I can eat those!)
Dip (oh dips.....I love you)
cupcakes/cake pops/ or cookies
homemade pretzels (because they are the bomb)
jalapeno popper dip
Thus is my football menu.
And my sadness that its probably the last party Ill get to throw with the hubs before he leaves. the NFL is cool because they let military members stationed overseas watch games online for free. :) This means the hubs can watch the Broncos....hopefully
win a few. Im still mad about last weeks loss. But I guess that means the players will be too!
And it looks like I will have to drink a light beer (coors light....I grew up in Colorado so I can say that I can taste the Colorado water in it). But I want a full Belgium lambic. Oooh...add that to my menu
And about 6 hours of cardio :)
