– The much-awaited showdown between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets took place on Monday night with not much more than a whimper from the much ballyhooed* Jets. The Pats won handily, 45-3, solidifying their spot atop the AFC East and gaining and inside track to home field advantage during the playoffs.

– Not much else going here this week. It’s just one of those slow weeks where you’re busy, but nothing major happens. This weekend was spent going to a first birthday party for a friend’s son on Saturday and then cooking up a bunch of pasta, homemade sauce, and ricotta meatballs for a big Italian dinner on Sunday night.
Best wishes for a great week next week everyone!
