BUT THE PACKERS BEAT THE BEARS SO WHO CARES ABOUT ANYTHING ELSE!
WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPERBOWL!!!!!
Besides a Music Blogfest hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, we've got some tasty appetizers to prep you for the Superbowl (whether you're throwing a party or not).
First, everyone needs some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. It's as good as stoppin' at Buffalo Wild Wings. Pour it on some deli bought wings, pop 'em on a tray in the oven...and not so very long later (what? 20 min or so?) voila! Some deeeeelish wings. HOT.
Next, get yourselves some tostitoes and fritos. Here's why:
1) cheesy/broccoli dip
In a small crock pot add the following ingredients:
1-2 handfuls of chopped and cooked broccoli
enough shredded colby (or cheddar or a mixture) cheese to fill the pot
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
Stir ingredients together and warm until cheese is melted. Dip chips into it to enjoy.
2) salsa/cream cheese/cheese dip
On a medium-sized serving plate spread softened cream cheese. On top of that spread a layer of salsa. Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the salsa. Pop the plate into the microwave or oven until cheese is melted. Scoop the dip up with a chip and enjoy.
In addition, pair some lipton onion mix with some sour cream, stir with a spoon and dip and crunch with some potato chips.
Need tunes for the before/after party? Maybe for during commercials or halftime? You might find some you'll enjoy while hopping through this blogfest.
Here's my top ten song list for the blogfest. (I decided to make it a "musical diary" of my favorite songs since birth.)
