Yesterday morning I got up at 6am. I am not a morning person, surgery but I got up so I could take pictures of the sunrise over this beautiful field. I drove to the field and ended up having to walk for like a quarter mile in the 18 degree weather. Then a cop stopped to see if I was running away from home which was interesting. And then I ended up not getting the picture I wanted. Sometimes I don’t like being a photographer one bit. But most of the time I love it.
I made these Cheeseburger Pockets for New Year’s Eve. They were super duper delicious! The filling was so good that my sister and I used the leftover filling as a dip. They’d be great for any get together or the Super Bowl. My family is not into football, here but we watched the Patriots vs. Bronco game. I just felt bad for the Broncos!
How do you celebrate the Super Bowl? Who are you rooting for?
We’re from Boston so I’m rooting for the Patriots. Our church has a chili cook-off and dessert competition on Superbowl Sunday which I love. I’m trying to figure out what to make for the dessert competition. Suggestions?
Have a great week!
