Week 6 was a good week for me – so very happy I decided to play some odds! I took SF over the Rams which put me in the Number one spot on the Pool! I was back and forth on the KC and Houston game… I was switching my pick all week… I doubted myself Sunday morning and I pulled my Houston pick and went with KC at the very last minute (Hills return scared me – but it shouldn’t have). And I should have trusted my Gut. But what can you do!

This week we have some great games again! some really even match-ups so there is a lot of 50/50 picks so I am not gonna share any picks this week. I am hoping I hold my lead. Fingies Crossed! Also – shout out to Mahomes – rest up that Knee Bro – see you in a month!

Anyways – Today is Game Day! So we have Butter Chicken on the Menu today!

I have been working on my Indian cooking for a few years now, and I have to say – I think I have mastered the art of Butter Chicken!

Two things – this recipe is MASSIVE! 1. Cut the ingredients in half to make a smaller batch. But, 2. This freezes well. So feel free to make a big batch and just freeze the rest for another night if you are not feeding 12 people!

Here are the Roster details for this weeks Line up!
