Football is highly conducive to knitting. My sister knits during football and talks to the TV…much like Den…without the knitting. We literally stayed in on Saturday and Sunday…other than walks and church…because my sister Paula loves football. Den loves football. Patty, Lucy and Roxie…do not love football but I read, played games and occasionally begged off and went upstairs to my room to watch the Hallmark Channel…I was desperate to watch anything other than football. I didn’t even care how hokey it was. I also knew my sister wanted to take care of me. She had preprepped dinners…we had carnitas in a bowl one night…tiny ham and cheese sliders on Saturday and an Italian sauce that had a roast in it…she cooks it for hours on top of the stove until the meat falls apart. I have recipes for everything! The roast sauce involves chopping carrots and celery and garlic and onions but I have Weggieman’s…and their prechopped stuff! I love it…Den and I also squirreled away all of the leftovers…we have a carnita dinner and two roast sauce dinners in the freezer. Plus…she brought us two Briar Hill Pizzas…it’s the pizza from our little Ohio town and it cannot be duplicated anywhere…they are also in the freezer!
This is a Briar Hill Pizza…the only cheese is grated Parmesan cheese and it always has peppers on it. It’s kind of like a Philadelphia tomato pie but not really.
