Well, another Superbowl has come and gone.
Seeing as I’m an obnoxiously overbearing and aggressive Bears fan and am not a gambling kind of lady, I was not all that riveted by last night’s game.
And, though I’ll admit that I wasn’t paying close attention, it seems like the commercials sort of fell flat, too.
But the food?
Ohhh, the food.
I labored over a hot stove for the better part of the day to prep and cook ALL THE FOOD. Mind you, I’m not complaining. I’m one of those deranged people that actually finds chopping, stirring and roasting relaxing.
I do not, however, find slicing the tip of my finger off relaxing. Don’t worry, I didn’t require an ER trip. Nor did I bleed into any of the food, more importantly.
I made baked mac ‘n cheese balls:
Bev’s White Spinach Cheese Dip:
This was incredibly quick and easy- I would absolutely recommend it. Just make sure to keep it warm, otherwise it’ll congeal as it cools.
Plenty of veggies and crackers with hummus and caramelized onion dip:
Chips, salsa and guacamole (obligatory):
Bacon wrapped dates, stuffed with Boursin cheese:
I actually cut the dates and bacon slices in half to make them bite sized and not quite so gluttonous. And also so that I can get away with eating 6 (or 15) of them.
Trader Joe’s wings:
And buffalo chicken dip, thanks to my buddy Alison.
Plus, funfetti cupcakes and brownies that appeared later on. And don’t worry, the spread was pretty well demolished by the end of the game.
And now that football season has officially gone out with a whimper (let’s be honest you guys), I’m ready for spring training to start up.
From buffalo chicken to stadium hot dogs. Onwards and upwards.
