I will be the first to admit that I am not a football fan. But I know lots of you are, including my hubby. Usually he goes to the YMCA and runs on the treadmill while football is on (yes he can run for an entire game). This is our compromise, he gets training in and gets to watch football. My daughter and I don’t have to listen to the game and get annoyed by 3+ hours of our precious weekend time getting taken up by the game. 2 birds with on stone style since he has to get his runs in too. Those are two very time consuming activities.
I know most of you are not running on the treadmill during the game. Probably just watching from the comfort of your own home because your partners are nicer than me. So why not have some yummy snacks to go with it!
By the way, he will likely watch the Super Bowl from home. I will likely wander in and out to see if the commercials are any fun.
Here are some dips that we have been devouring lately. These are good with vegetable sticks, tortilla chips and those awesome Mary’s gone crackers too! Or by the spoonful!
