My favorite time of year is here: football season!!!
Ok, the above statement is a complete lie. I actually dislike football, but I’m attempting to like it this year. Mal and his BBF, Dave, are freaks love football and already have plans to get together every Sunday (or Monday) for the game until the end of the season. I don’t want to miss out on the fun (or the yummy food), so I figure if I can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
To get us more involved, the guys actually created a special Fantasy Football league for Marie and me this afternoon. It’s just the four of us competing and we each have $10 on the line. I’m super competitive with this type of stuff, so, hopefully, I’ll get into it and enjoy watching football a little bit more.
Murphy doesn’t know a thing about football, but whatever Dad likes, he likes. Murph sported his new Patriots jersey this afternoon.
Bella is also a Pats fan. How adorable is she!?!
Look at that face!! Murphy is exhausted from playing with Batman all weekend.
Dave and Marie hosted for today’s game, so they made some delicious eats for us to enjoy. We had homemade blueberry coffeecake and mimosas.
And a little while later: Buffalo Chicken Dip!
This stuff is so addictive! I could not stop eating it and now it’s sitting in my stomach like a rock. I actually don’t think I’ll need dinner tonight.
[rewind to this morning in Vermont]
Mal and I woke up early to get on the road back to Boston. But, before we headed home, we made a couple of pit-stops in Stowe and Waterbury. First stop: The Bagel.
For breakfast, I ordered a toasted Oatmeal Honey Raisin bagel with “Health Nut” cream cheese, which was made with shredded carrots, raisins, walnuts, and honey. Um, amazing. I also drank an iced coffee with milk.
Our next stop was Cold Hollow Cider Mill for cider donuts, which are the most amazing donuts on earth. They’re super soft, moist, and made with apple cider. They’re my favorite type of donuts. Easily.
How adorable is this place?
Mal and I each enjoyed a couple of cider donuts on the car ride to Boston. Pure donut heaven.
Recap of our Vermont weekend coming soon!
