We are into September and that means fall is here. At DINC we love this time of year; the cool air sets in, the leaves change, and of course football starts again. Who doesn’t love the perfect fall Saturday; I’m sure you know what I am talking about; those days the air is just cool enough where you aren’t cold but want to put on a nice warm sweatshirt, you have a crock-pot of chili on in the kitchen, a 12 pack of your favorite beer, and a full day of football on TV. These are some of the most relaxing and greatest days of the year and if you disagree, I implore you to try it.
Seriously, Saturday around 11:00, run to the store, pick up the ingredients for some chili (if you don’t like chili find another slow cooker meal you like), you also might want to get a few snacks, and finally grab a few beers, wine, or whatever you like best. When you get back to your house, throw everything in the crock-pot and turn it on, put the drinks in the fridge (DINC TIP: throw a few drinks in the freezer as well), now go put on some sweatpants and a sweatshirt.
If you don’t have anyone to hang out with, call some of your friends over, it’s always more fun with other people around. It should be around 12-12:30 now; perfect, the games are starting. Once the drinks in the freezer are ice cold get one, grab your snacks, kick your feet up and relax while watching America’s sport. Not too bad right? Even for you non-football lovers you can see how great this is. Wait!, its around 2pm and you’re getting pretty hungry, oh no problem, chili is on so go grab a bowl, and guess what dinner is also taken care of.
At DINC many of us enjoy Saturday’s similar to this, and believe it or not this is a great time and saves you money. Think about it, ingredients for the chili, a bag of chips, dip, and a 12 pack of beer will cost you around $30.00 (if you have friends over split the bill up and/or have them bring a few things). If you went out for dinner and drinks on Saturday night you are spending at least $50.00 a person, and that doesn’t even include a full day of fun. Take a DINCs word for it, try this out and you will have an awesome time AND save a little cash.
