Football = Sunday Chili

25 Sep

Is there anything that screams FOOTBALL more than chili? Not in my brain. In this house football is king. Every Sunday is dedicated to watching every. single. game. Have you heard of the NFL Sunday ticket? If you havent and you have a significant other that loves football, don’t look it up. You can watch all the games at any time. It’s basically a football fest. So what do I do on Sundays? Get out of the house or use it to cook and bake and share it on here. Don’t tell anyone I’m saying this but it usually works out pretty well. I can’t believe I just said that…

We’re still die-hard Colts fans, no matter how good (or bad) our team is doing. So even though we’re 0-2, GO COLTS.

Happy footballing!
