Now that fall is in full swing, soccer isn’t the only sport occupying our time. After games and practices all week and Saturday double headers, soccer gives way to football on Saturday afternoons. Well, in Bacon Slayers world anyway. He’s got this thing going on with the DVR where he records whatever football game is the current favorite to watch after we’re home from soccer. He gets downright giddy when he can buzz through all of the commercials to bring “football time” closer to real time.
One thing that Bacon Slayer doesn’t find so humorous is spoilers when he’s watching a game on t.v. He starts throwing serious shade if anyone is on an internet capable device when he watches a game. He’s even gone so far as to insist on “internet blackouts” because he doesn’t trust any of us not to spoil his viewing experience with comments about the game that may have been gleaned from social media. Seeing as these lazy football afternoons feel like the only time that I sit down all week, I join Son #1 in parking my phone in another room to keep his daddy happy. Then we all hang out while feigning at least half as much enthusiasm as Bacon Slayer holds for the game.
I’d say Bacon Slayer was being extreme with the blackouts thing if maybe Son #1 and I hadn’t
accidentally spilled to beans on the results of a given game a time or five. Obviously my eldest and I don’t take football as seriously as we take soccer–much to my husband’s dismay!
When halftime rolls around on our tape-delayed football fest, we’ve likely been going strong for a good 8 hours or so since breakfast. The munchies hit with authority! Something about watching football seems to rouse the need to forage for snacks. And by forage, I mean we run to the kitchen to grab a few bags of cut vegetables and pretzel crisps to dump around a heaping bowl of Skinny French Onion Dip.
Skinny French Onion Dip is made from scratch by folding seasoned, caramelized onions into Greek yogurt. The recipe comes together in all of 25 minutes, but this is one dip that gets better when it’s allowed to mellow in the fridge and give the flavors time to mingle a bit. I like it because it’s thick and creamy, but not cloying or heavy on the tongue like the store bought tub varieties. The yogurt cuts enough calories to make this onion dip a guilt free indulgence. Don’t worry! Skinny French Onion Dip is so creamy and full of fresh flavor that you’ll never miss the extra calories!
