We’ve entered that time of year when I communicate with my husband via the Notre Dame football schedule. Sweet Potato Bites with Avocado and Bacon happened on “USC weekend.”
In the fall, Ben does not talk calendar dates. He talks opponents.
Me : “Jacky’s wedding is on the second.”
Ben : “What?”
Me : “The Navy game.”
Ben : “Ah, OK. It’s not during the game is it?”
I love football, especially the Irish. (High five fellow Notre Dame fans! If that statement alienated 80% of you, please come over and I’ll bake you Triple Threat Brownie Cookies to convince you that we should stay friends.) I’m still mastering the art of developing a rudimentary understanding of football strategy, but thanks to Sweet Potato Bites with Avocado and Bacon, I have unquestionably dominated one game-day essential: The food!
