Okay, non-sports fans. Bear with me. This little story ends in food and family, I promise! Stanford played Oregon last night. If you follow sports, you know what that means. If you don’t, just know that the Stanford football team has been doing phenomenally this year and this was a very important game. Sadly, I couldn’t swing actually going to the game with Nate…Owen is just too little to go and his feeding schedule is still too demanding. So, alas, I was “stuck” at home with the kids. Well…Stanford lost. It was beyond disappointing. We also had extra tickets that we sold online…StubHub ended up charging us a 30%+ error fee on top of their 15% commission for an error that their system made (customer service finally solved the issue today, thank GOODNESS). Anyway, seems like I would have been pretty bummed as I went to bed last night, no?
On the contrary! The girls and I ordered pizza and ate dinner watching the game. Of course, they only watched about 20 minutes or so, but we had so much fun sitting on the floor together, talking about Stanford football, eating greasy pizza. At one point the girls told me that yes, they are rooting for Stanford but the Oregon duck is still pretty funny. They were just so cute and we had such a lovely time together. Plus, on top of all that cuteness, I got to cuddle with Owen on the couch all night. Then this morning when Cate got out of bed she asked, “Who won the game?” When I said that, sadly, Oregon had, she cheerily replied, “Well, Stanford can just play some more and get even better and be the best again one day.” All in all it ended up being a very happy weekend if you ask me.
This week my menu is all about eating food we have stashed in the freezer…
– Orange chicken (from Costco freezer section) with rice
– Beef stew (from freezer)
– Yummy bread
– One of the Dream Dinners that I have in the freezer
– Eat out
– Lasagna (from freezer)
Okey dokey pokies! Bring on the menus! And, despite yesterday’s defeat, GO STANFORD!
