It’s that Sunday Again . . .
You know the one where I’m supposed to watch or at least pretend to watch a football game, the only football game I actually attempt to watch all season.
And I’m not putting anyone down that’s a die hard football fan, I live with a husband and he does enjoy the game. But I just find it terrbily hard to sit and watch football on T.V. especially when I could be reading, or decorating, or baking or crafting or, well you get it, right?
But for one game of the year, I join in and at least pretend to watch some of it. And I’ve found there’s some really good things about Superbowl Sunday, like:
*A huge gathering of family and friends, which I love.
*Lots and lots and lots of yummy food on hand for the entire game.
*Good entertainment, mostly from the crowd on hand, but the commercials and halftime show are usually worth tuning into. And sometimes the actual game can be quite entertaining as well.
On this given Sunday you will find me sporting my once a year football scarf.
Either around my neck, tied to my purse, or even used as a table runner.
As most of us in the U.S. will be gathering I’ll share with you my tried and true favorite superbowl appetizer:
Buffalo chicken dip
1 pound bonelss skinless chicken breast (I use a rotisserie chicken)
1 bottle Franks Red Hot sauce (12 oz.)
8 oz. container of cream cheese
1 cup Mexican cheese blend (or your favorite blue cheese or gorgonzola)
1 cup blue cheese dressing
1 bag tortilla chips and/or veggies for dipping
In a bowl shred chicken and combine with hot sauce to taste. (I like to soak mine for at least an hour)
Spread cream cheese ino the bottom of an un-greased baking pan or casserole dish.
Top with chicken mixture
Sprinkle on the cheese.
Finish it off by drizzling on some blue cheese dressing.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
Serve with chips and or veggies
And now I’m heading over to join Patti for visible Monday
