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.

I know the feeling. My first husband used to watch football Saturday, Sunday and Monday before he died. I am just starting to enjoy it once again.

I will be making a traditional New Mexican dish that they eat on New Years. It is a kind of soup, made with chicken and pork and posole. Really tasty.  I will also make a baked ham with the trimmings if it isn't too expensive. I cannot believe how food prices have skyrocketed too.

New Year's Day will be either lasagna or goulash.  Super Bowl Sunday my husband will be on TDY with the military so I will probably eat Lean Cuisine!!!

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?

I'll be busy in the kitchen thank God,I have had to endure 32 years of anything involving a ball,baseball,football,basketball,bowling and golf and I'm sure there are more LOL But I have to say I know where he is and I don't have to worry.Maybe we should be grateful that our husbands are home with us.I learned to block it out and keep myself busy with the things I like to do.

I am not much of a sports fan and won't go out of my way to watch. I do like to watch an occasional footbal game. College football is more fun. My sister-in-law is a sport nut and goes to as many events as she can. I guess that is what comes of having two older brothers. She even rode with a race car driver in Daytona, FL.

I want to spend some time cleaning.  Not really... but I do need to.  As for food, I don't really care as long as someone else cooks it :)

Since hubby retired from working I figure he put in 35 years behind a desk so now he has full control of the TV but he had better stay OUT of my sewing/craft room (my retreat) or he might be stuck to the wall with scotch tape and thread...LOL  He calls it our LOST room.  Whenever I go in there I get LOST.  TOO FUNNY!

That's adorable! I can't get lost. When my husband comes back from wherever...he walks in the door asking, "Where are You?" as if I had disappeared into the LOST room. Our home isn't that big that I could possibly get lost.

I'm very tired today and I am looking forward to next week when I go in the hospital (outpatient) for my Biological infusion.  I have Rupus.  It's RA plus lupus and have tried other treatments and now I have to get treatment every month but it only lasts 3 weeks before I just about down for the count.  Nap time for me in a few minutes.....

This year's New Year's Day supper is Sauerbraten, red cabbage & potato balls...we're making the sauerbraten ourselves so I hope to make it into the New Year or make it into 2011 not sick.  My husband's making his red cabbage (has bacon in it).  I haven't made homemade potato balls on my own so will buy them (holidays are time consuming enough without trying something new).  My Aunt, Great-Grandmother (all Germans on my Mom's side) make them & it's been many years since I was at my Aunt & Grandpa's elbow watching, eager to eat.  Grandpa used to make fantastic potato pancakes which I've never tasted remotely close.
New Years's Eve we see an early movie, take back streets home to see everyone's Christmas lights/decorations (before they come down) than go home & ready the feast: devilled eggs, english muffin pizzas, pigs in blanket, pretzels/chips/dip, cold cuts/salads for sandwiches, baked ziti, my step-sons spinach/artichoke/cheese dip

Superbowl Sunday is the ONLY day my kids watch football - I think because of the food.  Taco crescents, pigs in blanket, chips/dip, wings/homemade blue cheese, crudite platter, soda, Coors Light, two desserts, depending on my mood that week.  If we have company, whatever they bring or request

Elsa,
Sorry to read about your Rupus. So many people walking around and that we meet are not in the best of health. I will say a prayer for you. God Bless and Protect you.

Nancy, This is just a routine thing for me and I actually look forward to it.  When I get my infusion I feel like super woman and fly around cleaning this old house until sparkles! When not really I just get down the cobwebs!   I thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers for me as I'm on my way for Adoration at our Church and I remember all of you.  I never prayed for myself during my time in Adoration until someone told me it's not vanity or selfish and you must pray for yourself.  When I started to pray for myself I retired my walker to a cane and now the cane is also in the closet.  New Biological or the power of prayer.  I want to say its the prayers because that's what got me through Cancer twice.  God Bless everyone!
