Everyday NhanSense – Day 51

Everyday NhanSense: Each day, I will blog about something that comes to mind. My goal is to practice writing about my hobbies, my interests, my opinions and so forth.

Day 51’s Topic: Football Sunday.
Gosh, what a lazy Sunday.

I was really looking forward to watching the Super Bowl with my friends, but I was feeling really sick and tired when I woke up, just completely out of it. I wouldn’t have been much fun in my state, so I ended up staying inside my place and chilling out.

By the time the Super Bowl rolled around, I just watched the live stream of the game, plus I ordered from a pizza place to eat something throughout the match. It was my own mini-celebration, as you will. Not exactly what I had in mind, but it was fine.

As for the game itself, I actually got really into football when I got into college. I really got to liking the game itself from a strategic standpoint, and knowing the rules does help you understand how every play unfolds.

I am neither a New England Patriots or Seattle Seahawks fan (the Cincinnati Bengals will always be my favorite pro team), but this Super Bowl was hyped up to be an exciting match on paper, and boy it was. From start to finish, I wasn’t really sure what team was going to win in the end. It was close on both sides, and it was refreshing not to watch such an important football be a blowout.

The game being close made it more enjoyable, though fans of the Seahawks won’t be happy for a while (the last offensive play made by Seattle will be scrutinized until the end of time.)

So I made my own pizza for dinner tonight. I ran out of tomatoes or anything to make a standard pizza sauce, so I improvised and used salsa instead.

For toppings:
– Grated cheddar and pepper jack cheese
– Sautéed onions with fresh garlic and ginger
– Chicken slices that were cooked with the sautéed onions
– Diced red peppers
– Jalapenos
– Fresh basil
– Various seasonings

Surprisingly, the pizza tasted pretty well. The salsa ended up baking a lot better than I thought it would, plus it added a bit of a kick to the pizza’s flavor. I feared that the salsa was going to get super runny and drip off the pizza. Though it doesn’t beat real pizza sauce, at least I now know that salsa is a decent alternative.
