And the Crowd Goes Wild. Well that’s what it feels like when you are part of the crowd at a Record making hockey game. Today my husband and I attended a Detroit Red Wings Hockey game.

These tickets were not easy to come by. The Detroit Red Wings have been selling out their home games since November 2011.

Today’s game was a record maker, we have won our 23rd. home game in a row. That is a league record  and it was so much fun being at the game to experience it.

I indulged in the typical sports arena food, I had a hot dog and an order of nachos, but my favorite treat was the 190 octane frozen drink I got from the margarita hut.

The Red Wings won the game 3 to 2. The crowd was so much fun, I love the spontaneous chants that start-up and the entire stadium joins in. Today’s attendance was 20,066, and this crowd knew how to make some noise.

Joe Louis arena was alive and full of celebration.

The City of Detroit is really an amazing city. I know it has had some bad press over the years, but the city I know and love has so much to offer.

So glad we were part of a history making game.

Question of the day: What’s you favorite professional sports team?

Check ya later.

Having a food craving can really interrupt normal thought patterns, that’s how I have been with peanut butter lately. So for breakfast I made peanut butter topped waffles with hemp and chia seeds.  I also made a refreshing blueberry and banana protein smoothie. I love weekends.

I love to combine the two seeds. Super-food at its finest.

Added some Bee’s Knees Peanut Butter to Van’s natural waffles,

and Breakfast is served.

After I ate I started to think of some ideas for tomorrow.

My Superbowl Fiesta for Two. I love tailgate parties during regular football season. We have friends that tailgate Downtown Detroit every home game. I love the atmosphere in the City, the people are so much fun and there is food everywhere. We are big Detroit Lions fans, and we had a really great season this year. Detroit sports fans are really dedicated to The Motor City.

Even though our team is not in the Super Bowl, were really excited to watch the game, the commercials and the entertainment.

Today’s workout was 45 minute’s on the elliptical. I started to do a preset programmed workout on the machine, but I was not up to it. It proved to be too much for me, my legs could not keep up with the resistance changes. This was the first time I tried it, but it won’t be my last. Since I stopped that program I just went on doing my own workout, but with less resistance. It really got me thinking about strength. I do lots of incline workouts on the elliptical and on my treadmill, but I really don’t change the resistance levels that often. So now I have a goal to work towards. I don’t just want to go through the motions of a workout I want the benefits.

Now on to my next topic, Saturday Cocktail. For the record, I Drink Responsible Always. This past New Years Eve, I was the Designated Driver, and I enjoyed water with lemon all night and had a fabulous time.  Getting my husband and I home after ringing in the New Year was the only thing that mattered to me.

So for my Traditional Saturday Cocktail, I thought long and hard about what kind of drink I wanted to make today. Well first I like to think about a theme. I plan on watching the movie Contagion so I thought about what kind of drink I would want if we were on the brink of a world-wide outbreak and I thought, Something Fancy, Something Special, this might be my last drink. So I looked in my liquor cabinet and saw a bottle of Godiva Liquor that I have not touched since Thanksgiving. I got right online and found this recipe.
