Super Sunday

You know it.


Family and friends (and regular readers) know I’m into football, so it’s no surprise I scheduled myself off for this entire weekend.  Priorities people!

Sadly, neither the Pats nor the Giants really do it for me.  I think Tom Brady is too pretty and I think Eli just rides the coat tails of the older Mannings.

I’ll still be watching the game though.  Obviously. 

Who are you rooting for?  Or are you also apathetic about the match-up?

I’m ready for next year’s season.  If only the Packers and Niners could play each other in the Super Bowl.  That would be my dream match-up. 

Who would be in your fantasy football Super Bowl?

PS Janetha shared this sideways-toaster-as-a-toaster-oven-idea the other day and I had to try it out.


Um.  It does not work.  I repeat, it DOES. NOT. WORK. 

I nearly burned the house down and the kitchen still smells of smoke.


From now on I’ll stick to what I know.  Microwaving.


Home-made almond flour bread with home-made peanut butter with maple syrup.


So.  Who’s ready for the commercials?  I am!

    ha! I’m glad you gave us the disclaimer on it not working! That’s too bad!

    I like football, but get burned out with the two weeks of pretty much predicting the game and overanalysis. Plus, they already leaked a bunch of the commercials online. What fun is that?!?

    But with that said, of course my butt will be planted on the couch tonight for kick-off. With food. In a bowl. That’s my super bowl.

    Of course I’m watching the Super Bowl! I’m a huge football fan. Niners and Packers would make a great playoff game/Super Bowl if they weren’t both in the NFC. Are you a Packers fan? (I grew up in WI so HUGE Pack fan) or a Niners fan? Haha, sorry if you’ve answered that before; I’m new to your blog 🙂 I agree that neither Giants nor Pats do it for me, but I do have a desired outcome: I want the Patriots to lose. I don’t really care about the Giants winning, I just think Tom Brady has enough rings for his talent and that the fantastic teams that have surrounded him the past decade don’t get nearly enough credit for “his” wins 😉
    P.S. I love your blog! I used it earlier this year when I was looking up good vegan restaurants in the LA area for when I was down in SoCal for the Rose Bowl and am now revisiting and archiving it up!

    I’ve always wondered if this worked! I’m glad I found out it doesn’t before I burned down my apartment.
    And your last comment cracked me up. The only reason I ever watch the SuperBowl is for the commercials!

    almond flour bread. picture but no recipe? teaser.

    If I were to say this to my family, I would be disowned.. That being said, I normally would root for the Pats because my family is from MA, BUT I’m tired of them being consistently good. Other teams need a chance! lol Ahman Green (who use to be the packers) came from Omaha, what what! 100% would support them playing!

  7. Brenda

    I am not a fan of Tom Brady’s prettiness either. Or his wife’s for that matter!

  8. Jess

    It’s funny, I’m from right outside of NY and went to college in Boston, but football has just never been on my radar. I’ll be surrounded by Giants fans this year, though, so I guess that’s who I’ll be rooting for, if I watch the game. At sporting events, I can usually be found gossiping in the kitchen.

  9. Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats

    I’m excited for the Super Bowl but the only thing I appreciate about the match up is that I will get to watch Tom Brady for hours. lol. He’s my celebrity crush as long as his hair is short. 🙂 Can’t wait for the commercials though!

  10. Janetha

    Hahaha noted. I kinda can’t believe you tried it! Seems dangerous. That almond flour bread looks right up my ally. I am gonna look to see if you’ve posted the recipe somewhere! Also, you know my football feelings. Sigh.

  11. Elise (Post author)

  12. Elise (Post author)

    i am from the bay area so my two teams are the 49ers (nfl) and cal (college). aaron rodgers went to cal and my husband went to HS with aaron rodgers so i have two reasons to love the packers.
    i know they cant play each other bc theyre in the same division, but wouldnt that be the best superbowl??
    ps glad you found the restaurant research helpful
    pps happy sunday 🙂

    i tried not to watch them. such a bummer. its like santa giving you a preview of your presents. boo.

  16. Nicole G

    As a New Yorker (born and bred!) I’m a pretty big Giants fan. With that bias in mind – I must argue about Eli simply riding the coattails of Peyton’s success. I think he’s proven this season for sure that he has amazing skill under pressure and has pulled off some impressive wins. He’s also a great leader for the team. I’m praying for a big Giant win today! =)

  17. Katie @ Peace Love & Oats

    Yea, I don’t really care about either of the teams so I won’t be watching the Super Bowl this year. But my dream Super Bowl would involve the Kansas City Chiefs and having them WIN! Oh and me being there, of course.

  18. Kate

    I completely agree that they’d be a wonderful matchup! With the great Niners defense against Pack’s offense, it’d surely be a game to see 🙂 That is SO COOL that your husband went to HS with Aaron Rodgers! I love him haha. And I was definitely rooting for the 49ers over the Giants after we we went out because, well, I just didn’t really want a Giants-Patriots Super Bowl and because I thought t

  19. Kate

    … they’d make for a more interesting game against the Patriots! Oops haha.

  20. Casey @ Insatiably Healthy

    That almond flour bread looks scrumptious. Can you post a link to the recipe? Or can you just sub almond flour freely in bread recipes?

  21. Carol

    Glad I’m not the only one looking for the almond bread recipe. Waiting. patiently.

  22. Lou

    Sorry but I fully just cracked up at your sideways toaster thing… almost burning down ones house is not funny, but I am laughing nonetheless.

    Have NO idea about American football, I always thought it seemed kinda wussy as they wear all those shoulder pads + helmets. Man up guys…. we play rugby Down Under (not pads!)

    Enjoy your sporting fix 🙂

  23. Amy

    Haha, oh dear. I remember thinking that seemed like a good idea. Then I read that the cheese has a tendency to melt all over the heat bars and cause the problem you described (or worse….you blow up your toaster!).

    I think anyone who’s a foodie has tried any number of crazy idea’s that seemed like good one’s at the time 😛

    Enjoy the game!

    i want the recipe for that home-made almond flour bread and peanut butter! yum.
