Clearly, I am a huge football fan.
I honestly didn’t know today was Super Bowl Sunday until Dave texted Mal last night to ask if we had plans to watch it. The Super Bowl wasn’t really on our radar (mostly because the Patriots aren’t playing in it), so we didn’t plan to do anything special for it. We haven’t hung out in Dave and Marie in ages, so we decided to get together at our place for dinner, drinks, and football watching.
For our get-together, Mal and I threw together a simple Sunday Bowl spread, complete with chips + salsa, beer, Doritos (because of the pug video), and ingredients for make-your-own tacos.
I’m actually sort of looking forward to the Super Bowl now. Isn’t it all about the food anyway?

After breakfast, I headed to the gym for a quickie workout. I ran 3.5 miles on the treadmill in just over 32 minutes (9:09 pace) and called it a day. I love those quick and dirty workouts!
For lunch, I whipped up a Banana Bread Smoothie, which turned out really well. I’m still surprised! The flavor reminded me so much of freshly baked banana bread. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
In the mix:
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
- 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed meal
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1 cup Almond Breeze
I also munched on a couple of Livin’ Spoonful crackers for lunch.
For those of you watching the Super Bowl, which team are you cheering for?
I’m cheering for the same team as Ellen!
