Our last football party (for awhile, anyway) has come and gone. On one hand, it’s sad, but considering how messy the condo gets, and the fact that the food- and drink-fests are not great on the body, I am a-ok with it being over!
Yesterday went well. We had so much food, it was insane. In addition to the food/drinks we prepared, our guests brought lots of beer, onion-cheese bread, a Costco pizza, and three kinds of artichoke dip! Yes, it was Battle of the Artichoke Dip at the condo. I had my favorite, but I’ll never tell! This is just a tiny sampling of the spread:
Hummus tip: I always take prepared hummus, transfer it to a serving dish, and then sprinkle the top with paprika and then a tiny drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil. It makes it look homemade and makes the veggie platter look that much prettier!
I would say I tried to practice moderation, but that would probably be a lie. At least I used a little trick to control my sangria consumption: I filled my cup with ice, then about 2/3 full of club soda, and then sangria. Doing that, I could drink the whole afternoon but I don’t feel like death today. I don’t feel great, but at least I’m able to function. That’s probably because I didn’t spend too much time here:
I’m still going to take it easy today. Between the all my exercise, hosting, eating and drinking this weekend, my body needs some recovery time. Depending on how I feel, I might go to yoga later today. And I have to go grocery shopping because starting tomorrow, I’m doing this cleanse that this blogger found so I need to stock up on healthy food. I’ve never done a cleanse before, but I know I need it so I hope I am able to stick with it. I’m also having dinner with a girlfriend tonight, so all in all, not bad for a three-day weekend!
