Saturday we spent the morning reading in the living room. I love that we are both so into the 'The Hunger Games' books! We've never spent mornings laying around enjoying a book together. Ella was getting pretty annoyed at our lazy Saturday morning, so we took her to the park across the street to run free in the snow - her favorite :o) That afternoon/evening was a marathon cooking day. I couldn't believe how much we made! At one point Andy commented that almost every pot and pan we owned was either in the sink or dish drainer! We were planning a Super Bowl party, so we had a bunch of food we wanted to prep for that. On our cooking list:
- Stuffed Mushrooms
- Chex Mix (double batch!)
- Gluten-free Bread
- Sour Mix for drinks
- Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Puppy Chow
Following our time in the kitchen we watched, you guessed it, 'The Hunger Games' on Netflix!
About five seconds after this photo was snapped, Ella took off chasing that bus. She hates buses. We have no idea why.
Can you believe all the lemons and limes it took to make a batch of sour mix? It's totally worth it.
On Sunday, we still had more cooking to do - can you believe it (Andy couldn't!)? I was able to sneak in a morning yoga class, along with the rest of the neighborhood! The owner of the studio realized that folks weren't going to be practicing yoga when the Denver Broncos were in the Super Bowl, so she cancelled the afternoon classes and I'm quite sure everyone was at the class I attended! It was packed, but such a good workout, so it was worth it. That afternoon we had five friends over to watch the game at our place. I would have taken photos to post, but it was such a somber event, it just didn't quite seem right. Regardless of the outcome of the game, we had great food, drinks, and company.
I hope you had a good weekend What did you do to celebrate the Super Bowl?
