It was a fun Super Bowl day. Two strong teams fought hard to win, but it was truly super to see Peyton pull out the win. It’s a great reminder that, even when everyone says you are done, you can defy those types of comments and come back. You’re never too old to do something amazing. (Not that 39 is old, but it is “old” for the sport.) It’s always encouraging to see someone prove the nay-sayers wrong.
My daughter-in-love and I decided we’d try some new snacks so this afternoon, we made pizza bites, guacamole-filled mushroom caps, brie and red pepper jelly bites, and tortilla chip dip in a cast iron pan. It was all yummy, but I especially loved the guacamole-filled mushroom caps. Here’s the short version of the recipe in case you’d like to try them:
Wash the mushrooms and pull out the stems. Coat the caps with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake them at 375 for about 10 minutes. Fill the warm caps with avocados (mashed) with guacamole seasoning, gorgonzola cheese and chopped tomatoes. Easy and delicious (and healthy)!
We didn’t have any big plans, but wanted to share with others, so we invited Bob and Marie over to watch the game with us. Bob and Marie have been friends with us for about ten years, and have been with us for many of our big life events since we’ve been in Tennessee. But, in all honesty, we haven’t seen them socially very much the past few years. Catching up with old friends always feels super. Overall, the evening was a nice cap to a pleasant weekend.
DAY 114 HOMEWORK: What do you have in your life that people said you couldn’t do? What can you turn around for a win? Defy those comments and show your inner-champion.
