10 on Tuesday

This week: 10 things in your fridge right now....

1. skim milk: the Organic Cow brand. I know, it's like $3.99  for a 1/2 gallon, but I have to drink 24 ounces a day, it's going to be tasty, organic, hormone-free.
2. chicken from the crock pot yesterday. I made a new-to-me recipe for chicken leg quarters in the crockpot (PC loved it)... and with the leftovers, I removed the skin and bones for easy lunch assembly this week.
3. chicken gravy. Low-carb chicken gravy (homemade) made from the crockpot chicken.
4. 1 sugar-free pudding (the other one is in my lunch bag)
5. 4 Samuel Adams beers. 
6. sabra hummus mini-cups. Get these at BJ's--- great portion control. 
7. 1 egg.... 2 went in my belly this morning for breakfast
8. Penzey's chicken stock "goop"--- this is indispensable. In fact, I am going to get the turkey and beef ones on my next trip.
9. sugar-free ice tea. I'm an iced-tea fanatic. This kind is peach.
10. there was roast beef with homemade gravy, onions & carrots... but I took it for lunch! FridgeBlue_V2.jpg

10 Reasons to Watch Football.

Huh. This one is tough for me. I grew up watching football, attending football games, talking football... and I am a football widow. PC is a football lunatic, I mean, fanatic. I tend to not watch now, and instead I meet other football widows and knit.

1. Football is nice background noise. You can occasionally glance up and see what's been going on.
2. I like the linemen, screw those little little QB's and running backs... give me a center or safety any day.
3. Knitting. Need I say more? No one complains when you knit during football, because it means you aren't asking stupid questions.
4. I love watching the little ones play football. They look like helmets with feet.
5. I like watching the wee cheerleaders. I was a wee cheerleader (I was a cheerleader from age 7 to 18.... and team captain twice: in 8 th grade and senior year).
6. Little Chloe likes football now... she associates it with Uncle "PC" which I think is hysterical. Uncle "PC" has offered to teach her to throw a spiral.
7. Football watching means I make pot roast or some other all-day meal.
8. Football watching means I have the afternoon "off" to shop, knit, skip, sing....whatever I want, as long as i'm either a) quiet or b) out of the house.
9. PC's love of football is one of the reasons I love him. He's very passionate about it, but also knows it's not the world. I like a man who can see reality.
10. 12 straight hours of football for PC means he can't complain about me watching The Real Housewives or some other useless reality show that I am hooked on. :)
