For Super Bowl Sunday we were invited to join our daughter and our grandson Lucas for his first experience as a New England Patriots fan. Wearing his own Patriots’ tee shirt and relaxing on the couch with his own snacks, little Lucas was filled with excitement about watching the team win another Super Bowl and hoping Tom Brady would bring home his sixth Vince Lombardi trophy.
The weather in Minneapolis was frigid but the stadium was an indoor arena. And the weather in Connecticut hadn’t cooperated, so our daughter’s regular group of friends decided to cancel. In the end, it was just the four of us chowing down on the large salad my wife made, enough chicken wings, mini pizza rolls and desserts for 15 people, but it was a fun night for all of us. We definitely ignored our Free Style Weight Watchers program and ate like the old days.
