Hi friends! Hope you all had a good weekend! I sure did — yesterday I went to my first NFL game! I got my husband Bears-Redskins tickets for his birthday, and even though the Bears lost, it was an exciting, close game and perfect football weather. I only wish the Redskins fans had been a little more hospitable…we were not very popular there wearing our Bears gear, I can tell you that.
As far as the rest of the weekend? Um, it was basically a nonstop Breaking Bad marathon. Are you guys into this show? I’d always heard how great it is, and after people wouldn’t stop talking about the finale a few weeks ago (and, frankly, after this), I figured it was time to jump on the bandwagon. And I’m hooked. We’re halfway through season 3, and I’m on the edge of my seat the whole time. Also, I never, ever, ever, ever want to do heroin. Not that I ever did before, but you know. Definitely not now.
So if you’re planning on spending your Monday night either watching football or marathoning a dark drama about meth dealers, how ’bout a fun twist on dinner? This is a great use for the pre-made naan or flatbread you can find at the grocery store.
