One of the problems with me not really being into sports is that anything big like say the World Cup, the Olympics, or the Super Bowl always sneaks up on me and then it’s here before I know it. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that it completely slipped my mind that the Super Bowl is this weekend. Oopsies.
Of course you do realize it’s only an excuse for me to make snacks and watch the commercials, right?
But luckily for you and me, I don’t need to reinvent the wheel, I have some great recipes from my archives to raid!

A very belated Happy New Year to all of you!
I meant to write sooner, but would you believe I threw out my back on New Year’s Eve and spent the next few days resting up? I even had to cancel my New Year’s lunch party that I’ve done the past few years!
Luckily I’m feeling much better now and am not squealing in pain every time I stand up or sit down.
Which is good, because last week I started a new phase in my life: student!
Remember my announcement here that I was going for a career change and going back to school? I was both excited and nervous about being a student again, and soon enough my first day of classes was here.
(Side note — I never did really make much of a dent in all my projects I was planning on tackling! I’ll keep chugging away at them bit by bit.)
I’m taking 3 classes this semester: a general chem 1 class, a nutrition class, and a world cuisines and cultures class. I’m especially excited about the last one, it is SO my dream class. I’m just taking a few things to explore some options for grad school programs/future career plans.
So in the meantime, after a nice couple months of much-needed relaxation, it’s time for me to get settled in to a new routine. I promise I’ll be back to posting soon — I’m working on another post with Red Gold Tomatoes and have some fun stuff with Stonyfield Organic coming up.
Oh and I’m so not missing getting ready for tax season!
