Simple {Super Bowl} Sunday | Guacamole & Some News

Super Bowl Sunday. For me, these three words conjures up three little letters: D. V. R.

Yes, I know, this is blasphemy for some, but really, football has never been my thing. I’ve tried, really, I have. My older cousin, whom I consider the big brother I never had, has tried. When I was in high school and he was in college, he wrote – back when letter writing was still practiced – a five page tutorial on the game. It included rules, regulations, even diagrams – so that when I watched my next football game, I would “get it.”

Don’t tell him I never really finished reading the football letter. I just couldn’t get through it.

But! I love game day food and of course, the commercials. I would definitely record the game just so I could fast-forward all the punts and passes to view the commercials. Have you seen the preview for this little gem? A word of warning: if you have a pup in the house, you may want to put on some headphones so you don’t freak him/her out. Or, maybe not. I get a kick out of playing this commercial and seeing my bulldog Wilbur go crazy.

In case you are looking for a killer Guacamole recipe for today’s game, I wanted to tell you where you can find my version and to share a bit of news. You may have heard of a company called CSN Stores — not too long ago, I hosted a giveaway for this mega site that is the second largest online retailer of homegoods and furnishings. They have recently rebranded as Wayfair, and along with this, launched the My Way Home blog. I am excited to join seven very talented bloggers with various areas of expertise in sharing what we feel makes a house a home.

The inspiration ranges from entertaining and home organization to color and decorating. Yours truly will be sharing all things delicious in the Good Eats section of the blog, and what I love about this is not only do I get to share stories and recipes, but also my product picks on Wayfair that will make creating the recipe simple and fun! If you head on over there, you will see my recipe for my family’s favorite Guacamole (which I make every week), as well as some Maple Glazed Apple Blossoms.

I hope you check it out and have fun finding inspiration. Happy Game Day, everyone!

    Exciting news! Congrats! mmmmmmm guacamole. Love it. There’s no Superbowl where I am, but American football has never been my thing either. I went to the parties for the food. :)

  3. Maureen

    Congratulations L, you must be so excited! Super bowl isn’t too big (at all) in Australia but the American in me can still hear “2nd down and 5 to go” in my sleep.

    Love the guac!

  4. Tobias @ T and Tea Cake

    Teehee. That commercial made me literally giggle out loud. ;)
    The guacamole looks to die for and I really enjoy the combination of colours you have chosen for the pictures! And congratulations!

    Congrats Liren, that’s great. I don’t understand football myself and just ask silly questions like, “What just happened”? lol. Guacamole is my first choice of football snacks though. We missed you and Patty’s. Will have to go see the site. Hope you have a great week.

  9. Cristina

    Congratulations, Liren! :) Sounds like you’re going to be really busy and what an honour to be amongst the other seven talented bloggers!! :o)

    Superbowl? I like catching the commercials and the half-time show. It’s all good fun…
