Whether or not you are a football fan, you probably know someone who loves this time of year… preseason has finally started! My husband is a huge Broncos fan and has been on a countdown for months. Since Super Bowl ended I have heard “is it football season yet?” over and over.
I am a Peyton Manning fan. Now that he has retired I don’t follow the games as much.
Yep that’s me with the best Christmas present ever! I LOVE Peyton Manning and my sister gave me this awesome Fathead. He used to up each fall and and come down after the Super Bowl. We got lots of fun comments and many friends want their picture taken with him.
Munchies and Projects
Football games also mean crochet time and snacks. Since I am trying to eat healthier and slim down I will be snacking on veggies and fruit. Here are some to try.
Here is one I definitely want to try! Football Pudding Cups looks delicious and easy to make. Thanks to The First Year for this idea and recipe.
I hope you will enjoy making some of the crochet projects and yummy snacks I’ve rounded up. Some of the patterns are by me and others are from some of my favorites. Links are listed below with even more after that.
