How many of you out there know this Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday? I do only because I keep asking my Dad. I do not however know who is playing in the game. Frankly, I could care less. To me the game is all about the food and maybe some commercials. And if I'm not busy with other more interesting things, I might watch the half-time show. But if I miss it, I won't lose any sleep over it.
So....on to the menu. I've been planning this for a few weeks now (see I told you it's about the food, kind of like Thanksgiving).
1. Jalapeno Poppers: Pioneer Woman shown here. In her cookbook the recipe is a little different so I'm going with it. She adds green onion and cheese to the cream cheese and then brushes a bit of barbecue after wrapping them in bacon. Dad and I love spicy things so this is why I'm going for something warm.
2. Chips and Salsa: Pioneer Woman shown here. (I like her food) I'm always trying to find a good homemade salsa recipe. I have one that Colin loves that isn't very warm. I like a little heat and this has it. Yum. I really could just live on chips and salsa.
3. Philly Steak Sandwiches: Rachel Ray shown here. I guess we need some meat. Oh wait, there is bacon on the poppers. Well, Mom and Colin need something less spicy. OK, we'll go with these sandwiches.
4. Smores Brownies: Food Network shown here. Colin picked this one. I'm not a big marshmallow fan. I would rather eat bacon and salsa. :)
That's it so far, but I know Mom has some ideas up her sleeve as well. Remember our party last year? We'll see if we can out-do that menu. Game on!
