Three years later, and I have yet to cure Ryan of his football obsession. Even Murphy has joined the dark side . .
During the last two years, I attempted to find a way to entertain myself during football season while Ryan watches every football game and every football show televised. I should clarify that “football season” starts in approximately June, when “we” start talking about Fantasy Football. Then during the week, “Football Sunday” starts on Friday night or Saturday morning, when “we” start talking about our Fantasy Football team for Sunday. Sometimes, when there is a game on Thursday, “Football Sunday” starts as early as Wednesday night. And with Monday Night Football, the only day I can claim to have a boyfriend from September through January during football season is Tuesday. Every other day football is his girlfriend, and I am the other woman.
Year 1, I decided to cook chili every Sunday. While this was fun, two people can only eat so much chili from September through January. Year 2, I decided to cook foods based on the team the Packers are playing. This was pretty good success, and we avoided eating chili almost every day for months on end. The only problem was that I realized I didn’t keep track of all of my recipes, plus I had no medium to make fun of Ryan’s football obsession. So, this year, I am going to make foods based on the team the Packers are playing and keep track of all of the recipes on here.
