COLTS-TEXANSgames: minnesota vs dallas san diego  vs washington seattle vs tampa bay indianapolis vs houston escape: brunch on the menu:  lasagna

Upon survey of the most frequently discussed topics on this blog, aside from the Dallas Cowboys and therefore Mike’s roller coaster of emotions [Dallas won today so his roller coaster car is on the up climb], it’s no surprise that ramen and brunch came out on top.  True to trend, this Sunday I escaped football by brunching; home-made brunch at Maddy’s! After a series of texts, google searches, and recipe book page turns, Kayla, Maddy and I decided on green eggs and ham bacon with a side of potato rosti and fresh fruit.
