Father’s Day is by far the easiest day for me to celebrate. Unlike my mom who wants to be spoiled endlessly, my dad usually wants breakfast and to sit at home and watch sports, which is okay times a thousand to me. This year it was especially fun because there was not one, not two, but THREE World Cup games AND the NBA Finals. Eeeeee!
The games were scheduled for 9, 12 and 3 so bright and early I drove to my Dad’s, made us my favorite scrambled eggs with spinach, mushroom and peppers topped with vegan cheese–my dad had no idea it was vegan cheese, always pleases me. I also made sausage for dad.
Our day pretty much looked like this:
Ecuador vs. Switzerland — GREAT game with a phenomenal finish by Switzerland
France vs. Honduras — it was like watching a brand new French team from the 2010 WC
SUSHI BREAK nom nom nom — we decided to pre-order the meal because Argentina and Bosnia Herzgovina were scheduled next and hey, priorities, we want sushi, but we also want to sit on the couch and watch the games, ya know? I was also especially exceed to watch the Argentina game to see how Messi would perform. He did not disappoint
Once the Argentina game ended I ran to Trader Joe’s to grab ingredients for dinner. I KNOW we ate a shit ton. My dad said we had “Three squares,” which is rare for us. We generally have one ‘big’ meal and small meals or snacks to get us through the day. We accepted the fact that we were going to feel like chunky humans the following day.
At halftime of the Heat’s ass whopping I prepped dinner and invited my mom to join us– delicious burrito bowls with brown rice, black beans, vegan cheese, cilantro, cherry tomatoes, avocado and other yummys that make burrito bowls as amazing as they are. Of course I also made guac with home made tortilla chips. With the end of the game, it was time for me to go home and prep for my week.
And yes, you can bet your ass I went for the longest run of life on Monday morning. Hope everyone had an awesome Father’s Day! Here’s a pic with me and my main man
