We had big plans to attend the homecoming for Kevin's school this weekend, but it didn't happen. The weather was sketchy with rain in the forecast all day. Fletcher was fussy so we opted to stay in all weekend. It was a great weekend despite being totally different than what we'd planned. The kids were working on their game face :) The Irish are now 2-2 so we definitely need to toughen up!
We ate some yummy food. Olive and I made brownies. Triple chunk with mini M&Ms on top.
We rarely go out to eat these days because take out has become easier for everyone. Kevin will usually pick something up for us and has memorized our orders. We've started getting into the habit of having pizza picnics on Friday nights and it's so fun. We'll get pizza from one of our favorite spots and then eat it picnic style on a blanket in our play room. Pizza Hut Dippers pizza is our go to right now. It's soooo good!! There's no sauce on the pizza - you just dip it in the sauce. Plus there's always leftovers so we get two meals out of one pizza. Kevin (the coupon lover) got a half off Pizza Hut coupon so we ended up getting two dinners for $6.
I made my first batch of Game Day Chili and Kevin said it was my best ever!! I made a few changes to my usual recipe from my MIL because of what I had in my fridge so I thought I'd share my delicious recipe with you. It so easy and so yummy!
1 lb ground round
1/2 chopped yellow onion
1/2 chopped purple onion
1/2 chopped sweet pepper
Season salt sprinkled on top
Brown all of those things together and drain off liquid/grease.
1 can tomato soup
1 can water
1 can Brooks Quick Cook Chili Mix
1 T sugar
1 T chili powder
Combine all ingredients and cook for an hour before serving.
It's delicious left over, too!!
Toppings: Shredded cheddar, sour cream, green onions & fritos
I'm wishing I'd doubled the recipe so we could have left overs this week :)
We stayed in our pjs and snuggled. The house felt cold in the mornings and we loved it! I think this is what the heart eye emoji looks like in real life.
We snapped a few pictures of the kids during half time. Olive has almost mastered the Notre Dame fight song and kept kicking around the football. She'd say, "I really love footballing. This silly basketball is not listening to me (when the football would take an awkward bounce)." haha We just enjoy hanging out and watching football together. And it's definitely more fun to cheer for your team when they WIN!!
How was your weekend??
Did you watch any football or try any new recipes??
