It’s Super Bowl Sunday & time for 5 Randoms from my world:
1)”Lake effect” snow is swirling down and has been since early yesterday ~ It’s beautiful, heavy, and coming down fast. I’ve shoveled the walkway & sidewalks 3 times in the past 24 hours, probably gonna shovel 2x more. (Hubbs’ back does not allow for shoveling and … I kinda get into it. )
2.) The house is cozy, my wings are marinating and Hubbs is cooking brunch. (He’s smart enough to feed a gal willing to shovel) 🙂 The groundhog poked his nose out Friday, looked around then did what most of us would: went back in for a long winters’ nap. I don’t hate winter. Everyone around me complains about it. I don’t. Yeah, we get a few more grey days than I’d like, but like my brother says, “look on the positive side – no mosquitoes!” Maybe I’m a groundhog, too.
3) Tonight is the Super Bowl LII (52) ~ There’s no shame in my game ~ I’m in for the a) snacks, b) commercials and c) half-time show! On the menu are: (my) Wings, Swedish meatballs, Taco dip & 7 layer salad; friends are bringing cheesy potatoes & dessert. We’ll nosh, chat, cheer and have fun. And hopefully somewhere in there is a football game 🙂
- You can make the easiest, most finger-lickingingest wings by simply marinating frozen wings in 1 bottle of Italian dressing mixed with 1 bottle of Frank’s hot sauce ~ toss & marinate for 24 hours then grill or bake in a hot oven (375) till crispy & done – serve with Ranch dressing or more hot sauce. Delish!
4) I just remembered I have tomorrow off! Yippee Skippy!
5) A while back I bought a rebounder. It’s a small, quiet (because of bungee cords not springs) indoor trampoline. The health benefits are purported to be many — increased bone strength, better balance, stamina, flushes the lymphatic system, increased circulation, etc. I love how much fun it is! And it is a workout, too. I own a stack of exercise videos that are anything but fun, and consequently, dusty. Now I try for 30 minutes of bouncing daily – sometimes in 15 minute increments. Jump on, turn up the tunes (Tina Turner, Elvis, the Bee Gees, TobyMac) and go. After reading the reviews, I decided on the Jumpsport 250 from Amazon – free shipping, <$250, and easy to assemble, just attach the legs and go! Awesomesauce! In time, I may upgrade to the Cadillac of rebounders, the Bellicon, but I couldn’t justify their price at first when I didn’t know how much I’d bounce. Conclusion: Using it, loving it, grand kids enjoy it, bouncing is fun, needs no extra accessories (I jump barefoot), and I’ll continue ~ win!
So what’s cooking at your house today? Are you watching the Super Bowl tonight? Any wings in your future?
