Day 33: Super Bowl

Today I did something I haven't done in almost three years - I watched the Superbowl.

Of course, I use the term "watched" loosely.  Anyone who was there could make the argument that I just ate a lot of food and talked about how amazing Red Hot Chili Peppers were.

I would be lying if I said I was a football fan.  Besides the television series, Friday Night Lights, and the drumming of a good pep band in my chest laced with the smell of popcorn and hot chocolate, I really have no attachment to this weekend ritual.

As I told my sister-in-law tonight...I'm going for the tacos.

It's one of those things that is distinctly American and you don't really realize it until you're not living in America.  I remember the some of the volunteers sort of getting geared up for the game, and us trying to explain what makes it fun even if you don't follow football.  I remember actually telling someone that I wanted to make some traditional Superbowl snacks for the game, but didn't know how to because their country didn't have Velveeta.

Have you been to a Superbowl party without Velveeta used in at least one dish?

Today I am thankful for the small nuances that remind me of home.

Whether it's the Superbowl, or authentic Mexican food, or a good Velveeta dish...there are things I do love about living here.

And P. S. Anthony Kiedis KILLED IT at halftime.

That is all.

@Tytti Matsinen Oh Tytti, if I sent some over to you, you'd probably never want to be my friend again. :)
