The Week in Review 1/24/18

Favorite meal of the week:  We have a tradition in our house to make food representing the teams we are rooting for in the playoffs and/or Super Bowl.  This year we rooted for the Jaguars (really we were just rooting against the Patriots) and the Vikings.  And for the Eagles because we love QB Nick Foles, one of our University of Arizona boys!  Plus my husband really wanted Philly Cheesesteaks. For lunch we had coconut shrimp and coleslaw.  For snack we had hummus and pita chips and for dinner Philly Cheesesteaks.  Dessert was mini cupcakes decorated in all three team colors (nothing for the stinkin’ Patriots!), jelly beans in team colors and Touchdown Sundae ice cream. Too much food but we kept the servings small.


Something I am glad is over:  You know how when you put the Christmas decorations away you always know you missed something?  No matter how carefully you look later in January or even February you suddenly notice the overlooked item.  I found mine.  Phew, glad that is over.

In the kitchen, on the cookbook bookshelf, one metal Santa Star decoration.

Something I am looking forward to: Yoga.  I started doing yoga again and it has really helped with the stiffness I was feeling.  Now I look forward to how much better I feel after stretching all those muscles everyday.


Something that brought me joy:  Best. Nap. Ever.  I decided to embrace the spring like weather on Friday (75° and sunny) and take a nap outside on my swing.  Winter returned on Saturday.  Can’t say I am surprised.

Yup, I napped on this swing and it was good.

I agree with this 100%.  Despite my nap. 🙂

How was your week?
