Hi guys! Are you ready to start talking football watching snacks?

Homegating snacks?

Yeah?

This is my favorite favorite favorite time of year for food.

Give me all the cheesy dips, all the tiny hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls, and a slow cooker full of meatballs in a  sweet sticky sauce.

Plus, hosting friends is always fun, even if all your friends have terrible taste of football.

Ahem.

Slow Cooker Carnitas Street Tacos - delicious tender pork on top of corn tortillas with diced onion, fresh cilantro, and salsa on top! Your whole family will love this easy dinner!

My kids have started this thing where they expect tacos every Tuesday. Like, the littlest wakes up on Tuesdays and starts chanting “Taco Tuesday! Taco Tuesday!” before he’s even had his cereal.

We’ve always done Taco Tuesday off and on but now it’s an issue if there are no tacos on Tuesday.

Which is fine, tacos are my favorite food ever, but man, I’m worried I’ll forget one week and have a full-on revolt on my hands.

The holidays, man.

Are you exhausted already, too? We’re a week into December and already my schedule has been crazy with holiday stuff.

So I figured we could talk super easy recipes that are going to make your life so much and easier and free up more time to shop for the perfect cat-themed ugly Christmas sweater.

Just me?

Mmmkay.

Is everyone obsessed with squash right now or is it just me?

I feel like every post I’ve put up this month has been squash.

I have 5 varieties in my pantry right now. And as soon as I cook one, I run to the store to replace it. Just in case I have an emergency and need a sweet dumpling squash right now.

I can’t get enough.

Slow Cooker Pork and Butternut Squash Stew - a bowl of comfort! Quickly brown the pork and then toss everything in the slow cooker!

Okay guys, real talk.

I broke the driver’s side window of my car.

“How’d you manage that one, Amanda?”

Well, it’s a Wrangler so the windows unzip and the zipper broke.

Okay, fine, I broke both zippers. Which is okay most of the time since I normally have at least the back windows off anyway. But y’all, it’s cold in the mornings and at night in central Texas now. I was shivering on my way back from Austin last week.

An hour and a half at 75 MPH with the window down at 10 pm?

It was cold.
