Right now it’s game time, so the boys and I are watching Denver and New England play and man, it’s a good game! Yes, Denver has carried it, but we had hoped New England would stay a bit closer with the points! We love watching football on the weekends.
Last night Fred and I headed to Walmart after his son’s baseball game to stock up on some DiGiorno pizza’s so we could eat some good grub and celebrate the the games before the Big Game! Ahhhh I can hardly wait for February 2nd!
Now, I’ll be honest here…I had 3 DiGiorno pepperoni pizzas in the freezer already. Hey, they’re on rollback for $4.50 right now, so I’ve started stocking up. This time I grabbed a Three Meat and 4 Cheese, and yea, one more Pepperoni.
I got it in my head that I would cut the pizza up into football shapes and one of the pizza’s into a goal post. Hey, I’m not one to think outside of the box or creatively so that’s all I had. hahahaha Thankfully, I grabbed some decorations to make sure we were festive! I wish I had all of my football decorations from home. I have the best platters and dishes. Sigh…I’ll get back home to get those things one of these days!
I cut up the pizza after they were defrosted a bit and got them into the oven. In the meantime, I make a 5 Cheese Spinach Artichoke dip. Again, I don’t have my slow cooker with me so I had to make it on the stove. Sweet Fred brought his over after I already had it pretty much cooked. It definitely could’ve used some extra slow cooking time.
As soon as the first game started, the guys and I grabbed our pizzas and sat down to root on our teams. Since Green Bay isn’t in any of the games, Buddy doesn’t care who’s playing. Doodle was hoping the Patriots would win and I was on the fence. I like Tom Brady and his team, but I also have an affinity for Denver since we lived in Colorado for 7 yrs and I was a HUGE Elway fan and now I’m a huge Peyton Manning fan! I bet Indianapolis is kicking themselves for letting him go! They got so close this year, but Manning is bringing Denver to the Big Game next month! Woot!
Now we need to warm up our leftover pizza and eat some cheesecake for the second game of the day. We’re pulling for Seattle. Yet another place I lived AND they have Percy Harvin who’s from Minneapolis and is on the only jersey I own, but from my hometown team from last year, not with his new team! I’m hoping they win and there’s a Denver/Seattle battle.
The last time I saw them together was in 1985? We had just moved to Seattle from Erie, CO and I thought Elway could do no wrong. Denver came to the Evergreen State and my parents gave my brother and I tickets to watch them. There he and I sat at the stadium as 15 and 10 yr olds rooting on our old team in our new city. lol Let’s just say, we didn’t make any fans in Seattle that day!
