Football...All Day Long!

But not for me...I am reading and playing games and I am going to sneak upstairs later to binge watch The White Queen...on Starz...which is based on the Philippa Gregory book. This series is soooooo good!

Making carnitas for dinner...a simple recipe from Simply Recipes! The meat simmers in stock and salsa for about 5 hours...then you allow it to cool and you shred it and roast it in the oven...we have it with handmade corn tortillas, diced sweet onion, cilantro and a squeeze of lime. I make black beans, too, on the side, and a simple salad...actually the salad is supposed to be plain lettuce with a bit of apple cider vinegar...not sure why.

Just finished was so of those truly beautifully written books...if you love family books and friendship books with a "touch" of dysfunction tossed will love this one.

Happy Sunday!


  1. I got the White Queen on dvd for Christmas and am so looking forward to watching it! Happy New Year from Carole's Chatter

    1. I though it was really good but they are only going to do one season! :(

  2. It's bowl season for my kind of football - so I'll have days of football and then none for 9 months. :(

  3. That book is on my TBR list. It sounds like my kind of novel.

  4. I loved Walking on Trampolines, too...and I just did five hours of Gilmore Girls watching! That food looks so delicious...hungry now!

  5. Walking on Trampolines looks like a lovely read; I want it! Enjoy The White Queen. I've heard of it but haven't read it (or watched it) yet.
