We don't currently have a TV so Danny and I have been walking to a nearby mall to watch the games. They have a massive screen set up and about 3,000 people pack in there. We've been invited to some parties in homes, but the experience of watching the game with a huge crowd is just over the top exciting. We show up early enough to get a table and chairs. And we make quite an event of it and pack a picnic of raw foods (we're still doing our 30 day raw food cleanse.) Today we had an avocado/pineapple/cucumber/cilantro salad with carrot chips; watermelon & mint juice; and a red pepper/tomato/celery soup. SOOO delicious.
Have you all been watching the World Cup? Are your kids getting into it? I hear that more people in the U.S. are watching the World Cup than the World Series. Any fun experiences, parties, recipes, or new traditions to report?
P.S. My heart burst to hear that some friends went down to Brooklyn Bridge Park to watch the USA game under the bridge. How freaking awesome would that be!!! Also, one of my favorite little boys on earth has been sporting an Ecuador jersey in Brooklyn. :) Ugh, I miss my Brooklyn kids.
P.P.S. GO USA!!!!!!!!! So excited to watch the game today.
