First Autumn Weekend!


It is a chilly, rainy day here in the district, and we are headed for a rainy weekend. As you might have read before though, this doesn't bother me one bit! I have books, magazines and episodes of Mad Men to catch up on, so I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend!

Sunday is also football day with D's beloved Redskins playing. I, however, am a football dummy! Would any of you ladies who follow football be interested in doing a Football 101 post to educate girls like me who never really watched it? I would love to know more since D is so hooked!

One thing I already like about football is the food! It is fun to think of snack-able foods to make, especially if we are going to have people over. Check out a few of these recipes from Hostess with the Mostess!

These Rolo Pretzel Turtles look like an easy game-day treat, and they look so good!






Have a wonderful weekend!!

Thank God you don't need football to make them! YUM!

I am a huge football fan, but dont think that my tutorial would be very good! Feel free to email me any questions you have and I will do my best to explain it to you -- I will make it easy to understand. No technical stuff -- once you get the basics down, it really is easy. Plus, our teams play on Sunday! (I live in Dallas....)

Stay dry. It's heinously gross in NYC as well.
And HELLO those little treats look AMAZING, and so easy. Sweet and salty, my FAV!
