  6. I’ll take one of each please!  Football season makes me sad – my husband was a HUGE football fan, and one of the things that made me happy was to make him football snacks for each Chicago Bears game – can’t believe I am in the second football season without him – I miss him yelling at the t.v. about how awful the Bears coaches were! 

    I had forgotten about those pretzel bites – I made them a couple years ago.  Sadly, today was 92 degrees out, but that’s not stopping me from making your shrimp  Thai noodle bowl for dinner tonight :D  I’ll tag you on Intagram later.  Hugs!
