Saturday we had enough time to get a few groceries and be back in time to enjoy College Gameday. On the spur of the moment I decided that we should make our own picks and see who fares the best over the course of the day. So I grabbed a pastry bag and we chose our winners as the guys went through the big games. As the picture shows, I came out on top in the first installment of this game. Then we watched some team take it to the Minnesota Gophers. The announcers said it was the Iowa Hawkeyes but they did not look like any Iowa team I've seen this year. Fingers crossed that that team sticks around for a while.
With the Irish having a bye week, we had a perfect break in the programming schedule to head to the mall and shop a bit. Jeans for me, shoes & sweaters for minovia. In the evening, we made a sopa de fideos (Mexican tomato/noodle soup) from the Rick & Lanie book and it's simple flavors were comforting. I made it a little thicker than I probably should've, but it hit the spot.
Sunday was capped with Paula Deen's pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. So yummy and so healthy for you! :)
