Goals Update & More Football Food

Did you guys enjoy your football Sunday? Ours was lovely. I started the day off with a recovery run (after my 10K) and finished it off with lots of food, football and friends & family! On the menu, I made up my baked Italian turkey meatballs stuffed with mozzarella. After I baked them up, I put them in the crockpot with extra sauce to keep them warm:



As another main, Josh’s family brought over a bundle of wings:


I also chopped up a bunch of fruit and served it with fruit dip:


and I made two batches of Sabrina’s Zaatar bread:


We also had a bundle of beverages (alcoholic and non alcoholic):


Full spread:


For dessert, I made big Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk cookies:


And Josh’s made some delicious chocolate cookies:
