Fall = Football

Well, it is my favorite time of year. Fall... now if only it would feel like it. We are still in the 80's to 90's everyday.  I am ready for some blue jean and long sleeve tshirt weather. :)

With fall comes football. I really enjoy football season well I like watching UGA football. :) I am not into watching every single game that comes on. That's what Caleb uses DVR for. :) We are so excited to have season tickets this year. Last week was our first game. UGA lost but we still had fun!

Anyway, during this time of year Caleb and like to fix "snacky" foods on Sunday afternoons how this relates to football well it doesn't I'm just giving too many details.

One of my favorite dips is a simple dip that everyone has a version of. The difference in ours, which I got from my mom, is sausage. It's the simple rotel dip.

We cook the sausage mix with rotel and velveeta and there you go. Easy, easy but so good.

What is your favorite "snacky" food to make?

We Are Back!

I am so sorry that I have been away from the blog world for a while! It has been a crazy few weeks for Caleb and I. Caleb decided this summer that he was ready to go back to school. He has wanted to for a while but was just unsure of what to do. This time he really looked into his chosen degree and made sure that there was a good future with it. So we started preparations for his start of school with meeting with his advisor to orientation and all that goes along with starting a new school. At the beginning of August I suddenly realized that my summer was almost over! :( It went by really fast for me this year. I did, however, graduate with my master's degree this summer. YAY! I then had to prepare for my next step which is my Specialist and that started on August 15th.  If you did not already know I am a teacher and I started back to school with preplanning on August 16th. Caleb's classes officially started on August 28th. Thankfully we are both taking classes online so even though we are busy with school work when we get home we are still in the same house and are technically spending time together. :) So... with that said I have been a little overwhelmed but I am trying to get back to normal. With both of us in school the cooking new things and weekend trips have been put to the side a little but hopefully once we can get into a routine we will be able to get back to normal. I am excited about what our future holds for us and I know that God is in control and has a great plan in place.

As for today we are home and enjoying the night cooking together and watching some Football!!! GO DAWGS! :)

Tonight we made our own version of Southern Plate's Stuffed Pizza Sticks. We added some other stuff like italian sausage, onions, peppers, mushrooms, olives, pepperoni, garlic, mozzarella cheese and we used prego. We sauteed the onions, peppers, mushrooms, and olives before. We also cooked the italian sausage before.

 You have to let it rise for about an hour. 

It was really good! Definitely a keeper!
