Sunday Footbal BBQ

If Sunday wasn't the day before Monday...I would love it more ;) I got up this morning and caught up on some things around the house. I also prepared for a Sunday Football BBQ. My Aunt and Uncle were in town signing some paperwork on their future house (which is RIGHT down the street from ours- hoooray!), so we decided to do up some good food. I made Tina Bars with chocolate chips for dessert.

My Aunt brought this amazing bowl of fruit from Costco:

Josh made up some burgers and I toasted up some buns:


And I made up some oven baked fries. I had some sweet potato "fries" and lots of fruit (maybe 4 times this amount haha):


I also made up some traditional white potato fries for everyone else (they were still cooking in this picture ;)):


All in all, a great bbq! We watched a bundle of football and then I decided it was time to get my legs moving! I felt a little sore after the quarterly and knew I'd be doubly sore tomorrow if I didn't do anything today. I ended up doing 6 miles (5 running and 1 mile walking because I ran into my friend Jennifer who was walking her dog in the middle of my run):



Felt good to get a little sweaty :) I am currently making up some bbq chicken nachos and more steak fries for Josh and his friend Jeremy :). On tonight's agenda, switching up my Body Attack choreography and more football. What are you up to?

I love football Sundays!! Also, congrats to PSU yesterday--nice win there, girlfriend! I hope you have a great evening! I'm just catching up on all the work I avoided yesterday...I'd forgotten how time consuming college football season is. Whoops!

What a great BBQ!! Is that mango in the fruit bowl? Nice! That's awesome that your Aunt and Uncle are moving so close. Mine might be moving by our house as well :)

Hey girl! We have football time goin' on in this house tonight too(currently my boyfriend is yelling at the TV haha), with a 1 hour hiatus for the True Blood season finale on HBO! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday :) P.S. Oatmeal raisin bars look superfab

Pam (Highway to Health) said...

Great Sunday! That fruit salad looks amazing!

Maria said...

Yea for football! We have been watching all day. I am having major tummy issues today so no working out for me. Were you sore from yesterday? Just curious. Body Pump killed my legs, I need to work them out more. I hope to be feeling better and back at it!

Britt said...

Good for you for getting your run in, later in the day runs are always tough for me.... I lose motivation.

Sounds like a great Sunday!

Nicci@NiftyEats said...

I spent the day watching old 90s movies on TV,while cleaning. Great relaxing day! Sounds like a great Football Sunday you had.

Julie said...

sadly I'm ashamed to say I'm watching the VMAs right now. I guess a guilty pleasure..

hmm but Sunday football was super good :) yay Jets!

definitely need to make Tina's bars again soon!

Krista said...

What a great bowl of fruit! I'm not into football at all, but I gather from the blogs I've been reading that's it's huge in the States!

Sophia said...

Haha, exactly my thoughts: I would like Sunday a whole lot more if it wasn't right before Monday!

What a lovely Sunday you had, though, with great eats! Reminds me I haven't had potatoes in a while...

Janetha said...

RickyRae said...

I have been meaning to make sweet potato fries (I always make the white ones)...I'm adding sweet potatoes to my shopping list as we speak ...

Yum Yucky said...

Well, since you mentioned football, I'm thinking about Eagles' McNabb cracked his rib. I don't like the guy (as a player), but I am sorry about the rib.

lilveggiepatch said...

Fun football bbq! I'm trying to get more into it (aka LEARN what everything means, ha) because the Redskins are VERY important to my boyfriend's family!

Have a great week, lovey :-)

Diana said...

Haha, I love the first sentence: If Sunday wasn't the day before Monday, I would love it more. Ain't it the truth? I always try to remind myself that if it's Sunday, I'm not at work, am I? But sure enough, 4pm or so rolls around and I start to groan...

HealthySDLiving said...

mtbcy said...

"If Sunday wasn't the day before Monday...I would love it more" Soooo true! What kind of hrm do you have? Do you like it? Was it worth the expense? I want one and I'm trying to decide if I can justify the cost :) Happy Monday!

Angharad said...

Sounds like an awesome sunday! Yay for cooking for people: so fun. I spent the day making brunch with friends, doing yoga and getting "stuff" done around the house! It was totally awesome actually!
