I have hungry eyes.

Happy Saturday, jokers! It is a beautiful four degrees in Calgary today (on Tuesday it was minus 25. CALGARY YOU IS SO WACKY) and tomorrow is Superbowl which means PUBS and BEERS and SNACKS and Joel having to explain to me what a safety is, like, ten times.

Football is like sock-hands, i.e. confusing.

Speaking of snacks, the Food Rioters are rounding up our best eats of January and I find myself weirdly compelled to make tomato sauce. I know, right? That's not even a thing that I really enjoy eating, but I cannot resist when the hive mind is like, Mmmmmmmmtomatosaucemmmmmmm. Also there is butter in it, so.

I know a bunch of you are doing a readathon tomorrow and others of you will be watching the game, but the real question is, what will you be eating? 

It won't be my finger because that snack is taken.

Love the pics! I'm confused about sock hands, too. Mind = blown.

I have given exactly zero thought to both the Super Bowl and to what I am eating tomorrow. I'm not going to have a party or go to one. I might sit around and watch the commercials and then wish I could fast forward through the game. I mean, football doesn't even have a good name. It should be like tackleball or I'm-going-to-get-frontal-lobe-damage-from-playing-this-game ball. It's catchy, no?

Alas I have to work tomorrow. But after work I shall come home and my husband and I will make GIANT bowls of popcorn that will be dripping with REAL butter and salted just the precise amount and maybe tossed with a little freshly grated parmesan. This we will judiciously mix with peanut M&Ms and Reese's Pieces while drinking adult beverages and watching Downton Abbey.

Which means that in between crying buckets over watching Lady Sibyl die all over again on the rerun of last week's episode, we will be stuffing our faces with a healthy whole grain snack.

Well shit if I can't have the finger, then I guess something alcoholic.

My husband is the biggest 49ers fan. He's positively giddy about tomorrow's game. I made him butter cookies in 49ers colors and football shapes and such... taking them to a friends' party.

(Also - is Joel your husband? Because I have an Eleanor too, and my husband is Noel. Scarily similar!)

Gee, thanks for the Downton Abbey spoiler!

That tomato sauce is like crack. Seriously.

Except I've never tried crack. But the effect on me is what I understand the effect of crack on others is. It's unbe-NSFW-leivable.

I do all the eating with none of the footballing, so it's chex mix and spinach/artichoke dip and banh mi sandwiches for me!

I spent all weekend on my retreat eating bread, bread and bread, and then I got home and ordered pizza. So my stomach is doing QUITE well (lies).

I tried "socks on the hands" after seeing it on your other blog. my daughter doesn't really get it. or maybe she does? does "getting it" involve banging your socked hands on the table and sticking them in your mouth and staring at them and waving them around?

Jenners said...

Where did my hands go??? :)

And I am in love with the football onesie!

Ashley said...

Yep...that tomato sauce is going to blow your mind.

But don't freeze it to use later. The butter does not like that.

Can you explain what a safety is? I don't know anything about football. I thought the "Miners" were playing. (The only reason I knew the Ravens were involved is because of all the Poe jokes my literary friends were making.)
