In Response to Re: Christmas almost over, what's for New Years Day and Super Bowl:
I'm southern/German/Irish/Cherokee to the bone so New Years always includes black eyed peas, greens and some type of meat. Super Bowl??? GAG!! I hate football! I used to love it but, husband and son crammed it down my throat for over 45 yrs with ever pre-game show and after game wrap up they could find! Husband curses, rants and raves and calls the players names and I get sick to my stomach hearing it. I stay in the other part of the house or go shopping for groceries and pray it is over when I get home. And hubby took the week before it off because he is a trucker and runs all around DFW and near the new stadium where it will be this time. And they are planning on closing several of the roads, including I-30 down because of it. He is senior driver and some of the others are going to be royally ticked when they find they can't get off that week because it is already taken. I dread that week. It will be solid football shows. I am seriously thinking of renting a hotel room for that time.

Ahhhh, I thought I was the only one that dislikes football. I hate to mention it because some may think me "un-American" or some such thing. Although I can't resist using the Chicago Bears Blue and Orange.
In any case I sit down with a book or go into another room and watch Hallmark or the Food Network during the game....Maybe even the Home and Garden Network, in my mind I can re do the bathroom, and the kitchen, and the bedroom.....
I will make a Soup or Chili for dinner. Maybe a gumbo is another possibility. It gives me a chance to make Cheddar, Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins and they do taste so good with either chili or gumbo.
Then baseball starts........ugggggg Just for conversation it will be interesting to see who they get to replace Ron Santo...
Did I mention I am not a sports fan?
