Game Day in the Humiston House

Fall Sundays are undoubtedly Shaun's and my favorite day of the week. Not only do we get a double dose of football (S is a lifetime, devout Jets fan while I'm a born 'n bred Giants kind of girl), but we often make it our mission to come up with tasty dishes to enjoy while watching the game. Typically we each pick a game day dish, cook together in our avid kitchen and then settle in for a solid 7+ hours of football (Shaun also likes to watch the 8 o'clock game, though at that point I usually retreat to the bedroom to catch up on my girly shows which include but are not limited to Parenthood and Kardashians). Anyhow, I thought it would be fun to give you a little snapshot of our Sunday game day fun!


For this particular week, Shaun assembled a 7-layer taco dip, complete with roasted and subsequently shredded chicken that was lightly baked to melt the cheese.


I went with an old favorite and penultimate crowd pleaser, pizza dip! I often make this for football Sunday since we both love it so much. Though I do try to branch out to other things, it's hard to cast this aside...


Oh and Shaun also got his Alton Brown on with his famous homemade tortilla chips, warm and salted right out of the fryer (hey, who said game day was healthy?)

Here's my favorite Jets fan digging into the goods...


And here I am loading up one (of many) chips.


So that's how we spend our Sundays. Though today I'm feeling under the weather and sleepy from a dinner party at our place last night, I'm rallying to at the very least change out of my pajamas rock my Bradshaw tee and feast on some leftovers. On the menu for today? Leftover buffalo wing dip (Shaun's delectable creation) and mini hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls! What do you have on tap for today?
