I. Ate. So. Much. Food. Yesterday.
But of course, what’s a Super Bowl party without a ton of delicious food, right?
Late yesterday afternoon, Jay and I went over to our cousins’ Jenny & Steve’s house for a fun little Super Bowl gathering. There was plenty of food all day long, including veggies and dip, two kinds of taco dips, and lots of chips.
A little while later there were risotto balls, bagel bites, hot dogs and kielbasa with sauerkraut, one of our contributions for the day- our favorite crockpot meatballs (which Jay took care of all on his own), and chili.
And we also can’t forget about the desserts…we had cookies, brownies, chocolate peanut butter rice crispy treats made into mini footballs (how cute, right?!), and cookie dough dip with toffee bits (<– pretty sure both recipes are from Pinterest, not sure which ones).
My contribution for the day was these Chex Scotcharoos, which were also a Pinterest find.
Oddly enough, I actually didn’t have one (minus a few little crumbs while cutting them) so I can’t really tell you how they were. There are a few leftovers though, so I’ll keep you updated.
I started out by nibbling on some taco dip and veggies, but once everything was ready, I attempted to combat the munchies by making myself an actual, sit-down plate.
Two mini potato rolls (ate one), some kielbasa, meatballs, taco dip with celery and chips, and a small bowl of chili, which was absolutely incredible.
I even got to take some of this home as leftovers, which I’m super excited about.
So even though I made myself that plate, I do believe it helped…but it definitely did not stop the munchies. Then again, it also doesn’t really help when you eat at six and then are still around the food until after 11pm.
My nemesis as the evening continued was most definitely Sarah’s cookie dough dip. I found myself getting up continuously, grabbing a couple of bites here or there, which I can only imagine what it added up to. Jay and I left shortly after the game ended (not getting to bed until a little after midnight…ooof) and we both agreed that we were feeling rather stuffed and a little icky.
But over consumption of food and all, last night was definitely a BLAST. We got to spend the evening with so many of our friends/family (Sarah, Jeff, Mal, Brian, Andrea, Brook, Christina, Matt, Jenny, Steve, and the kiddos), and I even came *this close* to winning a fun pool that we all bet money on (darn you, Mal, for beating me!).
As for the commercials, did you guys watch and/or enjoy any? There was actually quite an amusing moment at one point in the evening for all of us…did you happen to see the new Budweiser commercial with the Clydesdales? Yeah, well, if you haven’t seen it, you absolutely have to, so I’ve embedded it here…BUT, I’m warning you…it made me cry like a baby.
Yes, I wound up crying (and was not even able to stop easily after the commercial was over), which gave all of us a pretty good laugh. I seriously couldn’t make it stop. I mean, I’ve always been able to cry fairly easily, but I’m blaming this one on the pregnancy hormones once again.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who cried at this…(Chelsey, I know you’re with me!).
Speaking of pregnancy hormones, the Baby Tooth page was updated this morning!
And just in case you missed it, here’s what was happening over here for the rest of the weekend.
Here’s to hoping today goes by quickly, because I am exhausted and am already looking forward to getting back home and getting to bed early. If my energy allows, I’m going to attempt a workout, but we’ll see!
Question for the Morning:
Did you watch the Super Bowl? Did you have a favorite commercial?
