Wow!! Yesterday’s Copa del Rey soccer match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona was awesome and intense! Barca ended up defeating Atletico 3-2 (4-2 aggregate) to advance to the Copa semi-finals, but it was a fun as well as frustrating match to watch. Fernando Torres had another amazing goal in the first minute to put Atletico ahead early and the drama continued from there. The match was very physical which led to some missed calls by the ref and some questionable calls and even a shoe thrown by a player that almost hit a linesman! Having to work a match like that, the ref should probably get paid double what he normally gets paid. lol
Back in the day, I used to watch tennis all of the time, but I have slacked off the past several years. I have been trying to watch some of the Australian Open going on right now and there have been some awesome matches so far by both the men and women.
One thing that I noticed during this tournament is that the women’s outfits are very cute. In the past, some of the outfits I have seen the women wear during tennis tournaments were just plain ugly. Of course, that is just my opinion, but I couldn’t have been the only one that thought that. lol Here are a few pics of some of the outfits I saw today at the Open (well actually it’s tomorrow in Australia.) I need to review the men’s outfits next!
Anyone else watch the Humana Golf Challenge today from La Quinta, California? Congratulations to Bill Haas for a great win! It was close until the very end. One shocking thing that happened there today (or at least shocking to me lol) was the presence of bighorn sheep on the course! I’ve seen many different kinds of birds on a course during play and Florida courses get alligators occasionally, but today there were at least two bighorn sheep grazing on the golf course while the golfers just played through. The sheep didn’t seem fazed as they continued eating their afternoon snack!
Hi All! I spotted this recipe from one of my favorite food bloggers, Dorothy at Crazy for Crust. It’s called Peanut Butter Football Dip. It looks awesome and I’m sure it tastes amazing. I’m going to make it for this Super Bowl. Go check it out! She has many other yummy recipes, too! 🙂
There is a lot of talk going on lately about a little, brown item called a football. I know, that is an understatement! lol
I have watched football for many years and no way do I know all of their rules, etc., but I am learning a lot about the health and care of footballs. haha I’m not sure if they will ever figure out what is or isn’t true regarding the footballs used during the Patriots vs. Colts game. All I know is that it should be a great game!! 🙂
Anyone throwing a super bowl party? If you are (and even if you aren’t) let’s share some yummy, quick and easy recipes! Who wants to spend the whole game cooking or making your significant other cook for that matter. lol
Here is a go-to pasta recipe I use a lot:
1 bag/box (1lb) of pasta (I use tri-color rottini for the added color.)
1 bottle of Italian salad dressing (average size bottle)
Optional – ingredients – chopped black olives, chopped tomato, parsley, chopped bell pepper…anything that you like.
Cook the pasta based on the directions on the package. Strain the pasta. Put the pasta back in the pan or place in a new bowl. Add 1/4 – 1/2 a bottle of the salad dressing and mix it together. Taste and add more, but the flavoring will get more intense the longer it marinates. Then add the optional ingredients if you picked any (I have served this before with no additional ingredients and it is still good). And mix it again. You can serve it right away or refrigerate it until later. Done!
