We got some long overdue shopping done this weekend. We stopped for lunch on Saturday at Iron Roost. This place is all about the waffle. They use waffles as bread for sweet and savory. I was in the mood for something kind of Mardi Gras and when I saw the bananas foster waffles on the menu, that was my choice! We started with local roasted coffee:
This was delicious! Pretty decadent, too. I really didn’t eat much for the rest of the day. It was suprisingly filling. Or maybe it was in combination with the 2 giant cups of coffee 😀
We hit up the outlet malls after that. I desperately needed some new walking shoes. I am going to show my shame here and you can see the bottom of my shoes. I have needed a new pair for probably a year.
I only use those on the treadmill and have other shoes for walking downtown in, but I needed fresh ones of those as well. Easy Spirit had a BOGO sale, so I got 2 pairs. It’s very, very hard for me to part from my money on new stuff. Old things that need work? Sold! New stuff for myself? I hem and haw. Anyway, I got a pair for walking/jogging and then an every day pair.
I love Easy Spirit. The toebox is nice and wide and the shoe widths come in wide as well, which I need for most shoes.
On to the best part of the weekend!
We hosted the Superbowl party. True fan, right here!
We had a mix of Mardi Gras items and we wore beads, since it was a combo party 😀
Buffalo chicken dip, red beans and rice, fruit, crackers and bread pudding:
Definitely not a 1500 calorie day LOL!
The game was great! Nobody thought the Broncos were going to win. Honestly, I wasn’t sure they could do it, but I thought if the defense could get to Cam Newton, it would rattle him and they would have a chance. I did a lot of yelling, I must say. In fact, my throat is a bit scratchy 😀
Now we are champions!!
Now maybe Peyton will ride off into and orange and blue sunset! Storybook ending, just like John Elway.
