Lazy days of baseball


It's been an interesting sports weekend in our household. See, I'm a huge Cubs fan. Sad and depressing, but true. My boyfriend, on the other hand, is an obnoxious Yankees fan. And our teams have been playing each other all weekend - in Chicago! - which is a very rare occurrence. We actually looked into flying there for the weekend to catch one of the games, but we couldn't make it work financially.

Anyway, the smack-talking has reached epic proportions today, especially since the series is currently tied with each team taking home a victory. Guess we'll see what shakes down tonight, while we watch the ball game from the friendly confines of our apartment.

In an effort to slightly recreate the feel of attending a game, I've put together a ballpark-style menu for dinner tonight. But instead of chowing down on a fully loaded hot dog, breaded chicken tenders, nachos, salty peanuts and ice cream, I'll be trying to stick to a healthier menu.

Here are some of the dishes that will be served tonight:

Southwest Citrus Salsa
Sweet and Spicy Snack Mix
Barbecued Chicken

These sucralose-sweetened meals are delicious AND low-calorie. So root on my Cubbies, y'all! And Happy Father's Day!
