In this house, we love Football. Good, old fashioned NFL football. Sure college ball is good but we really love the NFL more than anything else. The season officially started last Thursday but no one really wants to have a football party on a Thursday night so our big kick off day is always the first Sunday of Football. My husband and I both put together a Fantasy Team every year; usually my team is stacked and it is fabulous. This year, not so much. My team kinda stinks already. I need to try and pick up some different players or my season is shot!!!
Who do we cheer for? The Detroit Lions, of course! You know the song . .. Stand By Your . . .TEAM! They won Sunday - the first game at home - it may not have been pretty but it was a win. I don't think any team has ever had more touchdowns taken away in one game and STILL managed to win.
This past Sunday was great - here are a few pictures to showcase our day.
In reality the boys did not watch TV at all, instead they played with the Game Cube for hours. Josh is a video game junkie (only when we allow it, again, don't judge). Their favorite is a race car game even if it is really kind of hard for them. We are in the process of ordering a second controller for Nate to use as well as Mario Cart since it will be a little easier for the boys to use. We have found that if we let them play on Sundays, we get to watch a lot more football.
Since it was Kick-off Sunday we had to have some good food!! Unlike years past, I chose long time favorites and did not over cook. I also picked things that, for the most, I could make on Saturday - I wanted to do as little cooking as possible on Sunday.
Bacon Crescent Rolls for 20 years and they are always good!!
After munching throughout the afternoon, we had Sloppy Joes for dinner with left over munchies and chips. My husband said it was a fabulous food day and that is always good!
For the record, I don't cook like that every Sunday. Most Sundays we have a roast or some other dinner item that can cook through church so it is ready and then pizza or Sloppy Joes for dinner - again something that is either frozen and cooked or that I can make on Saturday.
We are looking forward to a great football season. It is the first introduction to fall - my favorite season!
