Are you ready for some football?

No, I am not. But thank you for asking.

The Dude is a huge football fan. Not quite painting-his-body crazy about the game, but definitely shouting-at-the-TV fan. And tracking-team-stats-online fan. He watches any game he happens to catch, but his real passion? The Seattle Seahawks.

The Seahawks lost the most recent playoff game and are out of the running for the Super Bowl now, but judging from the amount of shouting this season, I am guessing they did better than usual. Me? Not a fan. But Beaker is learning at his dad's knee how the game is played. When he sees the Seahawks logo or a football he yells, "That's footsball! That's my dad's show."

When he saw chocolate footballs at the store recently, he insisted he HAD to have them for lunch. I finally broke them out the other day and put together this football lunch for him.

He has a sunbutter football sandwich, made with the heel of the bread loaf for the dark color. The stitches are sketched on with decorating gel. He also has a car shaped hard boiled egg, colby-jack cheese cubes, blueberries, sugar snap peas, pretzel circles, and chocolate footballs.

He chose green and blue silicone cups. Seahawk colors!

For the Dude, Princess, and Bean, leftovers!

My mom (more commonly known 'round here as Nana) has been visiting. The other night for dinner she made Nana's Special Southern Style Fried Chicken. I whipped up a bowl of creamy devilled egg red potato salad, and we had a traditional Summer dinner, smack in the middle of Winter. Cold fruit and veggies on the side are a perfect compliment.

For the Dude, I packed leftover chicken and potato salad, with blueberries and strawberries and two Mini Dippers of dipping sauce. Barbecue and honey mustard, his favorites. 

Princess also had leftover chicken an potato salad.

For her I packed chicken and potato salad, with blueberries (decorated with star sprinkles) and a star shaped hard boiled egg, and sugar snap peas with ranch. A Dove chocolate makes a nice little dessert.

And for Bean, chicken and potato salad with barbecue sauce, blueberries and strawberries, sugar snap peas with ranch, and a little Dove, too.
