As any busy parent will tell you, finding time to spend one on one with your spouse is TOUGH. Lining up schedules, not to mention babysitters, isn't always possible. Sometimes you just have to accept that your dates might be taking place at home while your little ones are napping or down for the night.

We've settled into this routine. Saturday mornings after swim class we head to Publix to pick up some football watching essentials. I've mentioned it before, but Publix is our favorite because it's clean, well organized, and everyone there is so nice and helpful. Publix always has great deals, so we know we're saving big on our watch party ingredients.
This past week we picked up DIGIORNO® RISING CRUST® Pizza and Dr Pepper® Cherry. We also picked up vanilla ice cream, chocolate sauce, whipped cream, and cherries to make ice cream floats.
Once we put Jacob down for his nap we turned on college football and started preparing our food. I took all of the pepperonis off the pizza and rearranged them into a football shape using string cheese for the lacing. It took only two minutes to do, but was a really festive addition. DIGIORNO® RISING CRUST® bakes up perfectly every time, saving us the hassle and cost of ordering delivery.

While the pizza cooked, I got to work on our floats. Here's how you make them!
Chocolate Cherry Floats
1. Add two scoops of vanilla ice cream to each drink container.
2. Fill the rest of the cup to the top with Dr Pepper Cherry.
3. Top your float with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, and a cherry!

These were SO delicious we both had seconds with our pizza. Ice-cold Dr Pepper mixes so perfectly with ice cream for a frothy dessert that's just perfect for college football watching.

Watching football at home together is so relaxing for us, and preparing special foods makes it even more fun! We don't feel like we're missing out on anything by staying home instead of heading out.
