Inaugural McCormick Super Bowl Party
Hello friends, I am sorry for the lack of posting and commenting this weekend let me fill you in just a bit, and you should see why!
AM: First Anatomy Quiz think I did pretty well
PM: Ran 6 miles at night (first time ever) and did some major 7:40pace running! I really liked running at night, the weather was perfect I was just a little nervous about weirdo's out at night! When I got home hubby helped me study for my test on the skull which I really appreciated, thanks hubs!
AM A&P Lab: took skull quiz only missed one!!!! YEAH for studying!
Afternoon: Cleaned ad prepared for Suber bowl party (seriously we worked from sun up till sun down.
PM: Ordered Pizza Hut’s All Natural Pizza
"The Natural" pizza at Pizza Hut consists of the following: a multi-grain crust, a flavorful pizza sauce made from organic tomatoes and then they top the whole thing off with handfuls of all natural mozzarella cheese. You can choose to top the pizza off with other natural ingredients such as natural chicken sausage, natural marinated sliced tomatoes or natural fire-roasted peppers. And a 1-topping "Natural" pizza will only set you back $10.99. We were so pooped from cleaning that this was the easiest thing next to fast food. The pizza was ok, I definitely prefer our homemade pizzas better. The crust was good not too bready, and I really like the sauce on it too.
I added mushrooms to it, with no cheese(lactose-intolerant) and of course made a little side salad. I also went back for seconds, one more slice.
MCCORMICK SUPERBOWL PARTY
Now on to the festivities of Sunday.Before the party I ran 13.2 miles at an 8:30 average for my Boston training all by myself, I called it my “Yes I can EAT” Half marathon, because I knew what the day had in store!
I am not a huge fan of football(love Kurt Warren though;)) , but I think that the Super Bowl is another wonderful way to gather friends together for food and entertainment. I love HOSTING parties, sometimes I wish I could do it for a living!
The Spread: AKA Grazing ZONE!
I made a huge veggie platter, because I knew that everything else would be so tempting, along with some home made hummus with the Vita-Mix!
The Chili Bar: This is the perfect meal for a Super Bowl party. People can come and go as they please, because it stays warm through the whole party!
I had all the toppings, cheese, sour cream, organic corn chips and mini muffins!
We also had hubby’s favorite, ROTELL!!!
The Desert Bar: This wasn’t as tempting to me as all the snacks were!!! None the less it all looked soooo good!
The Decor: I ordered some balloons of the team colors and put m&m’s in small football bowls all over the house.We also had three TV’s going one in each living room and one in the garage. I like keeping it simple.
ALL THE GIRLS, who loved watching the commercials.
We also had a fun pool, where everyone had to predict what was going to happen in the game. Everyone put $5 dollars in, and the winner took all!!! CONGRATS GREG!!!
Jeff enjoying the grub! The pictures above are my two bros chillaxin…as you can see we played some ping pong and darts in the garage as well:)
Jeremy and Melissa being silly!
THE AFTERPARTY: Bro and I cleaning up!!! Friends were so great though, they stayed back and helped too!!!
I sent as much food home with others as possible, we don’t need all of the goodies at our house!
The party was so fun, and I can’t wait to do it again next year. As you can see I didn’t take too many pics of what I ate because it was a constant grazing fest, I didn’t go over board though. I did have two of these, I know I am giving up alcohol for the marathon training but I made an acceptation just this once.
I am now on DETOX mode!!! Today I plan on eating nothing, but fruits and veggies I was curious this morning how much damage I did last night and STEPPED on the scale, what was I thinking YOU SHOULD NEVER do that! Let’s just say I was depressed for a bit but know that’s mostly water weight (and all that salt I ate last night).
I am doing Detox Yoga this morning and then eating a nice healthy bowl of oats!!! Back to the grind! Hope everyone had a safe and fun SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!!!
