There's no football games this weekend! Hallelujah!
Let's take this time to reconnect with you before the madness of Super Bowl begins next week. Let's get all kinds of self-indulgent. Treat yo'self!
1) Ban tailgaiting food this week.
Seriously. I love nachos more than I love most things, but I need a week away. It's time to get it in on some greens! These Spicy Asian Shrimp Lettuce Cups
2) Hurricanes are okay though...
This year's Super Bowl is in New Orleans. Now is as good of excuse as any to get your Bourbon Street on with a tall, fruity Hurricane
. Let's just call it "training" for the big game.
3) Anytime football is mentioned, the offender must got to do a dare.
Write down a list of dares and keep them in a jar. If someone brings up football, they have to draw from the jar and do whatever the paper says. I'm not telling you to cheat or anything...but, make these Football Spinach Pizzas
and gently nudge the dial in your direction.
4) Make your predictions for this year's Puppy Bowl.
Study your favorite players. Memorize the plays. Take notes on behaviors. Or...you know...just watch this video of puppies!
