If you're curious, I'd suggest checking out all the great entries over at Cathy's blog. And, if your'e feeling really daring, I'd suggest making EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM this weekend.
Well, it's the Super Bowl. And I can't think of a better reason to embrace full-on gluttony. In fact, I've got a suggestion or two of my own.
Since this is the weekend for serious finger foods, why not try a few of my favorites?
- Chipotle Shrimp (Serious smoky goodness for the chile-heads)
- Butternut Squash Soup with Beer & Cheese (You'll need a spoon for this one, but who can argue with a soup that features BEER as a main ingredient?)
- Zucchini Oven Fries (Alright, these border on being healthy, but you'd never know it cuz they taste SO good)
- Blasted Broccoli (GREAT with a variety of dipping sauces. And, as Lo would remind me, you've gotta get your veggies in there somewhere)
This is something a friend of mine turned me on to earlier in the week. And it gave me a serious craving. This is the perfect dish for those of you who've been starving yourselves for a couple of days in preparation for the Big Game. IN fact, I'd advise fasting not only BEFORE eating this lovely dish... but also probably for 3-4 days following.
Ready for it?
Yeah, it's Big. And it's Bad. But, comeon people, it's... BACON!
Sure, you'll need a couple of pounds of bacon and an outdoor barbeque to get this one going. But, I'm going to suggest that the results outweigh any inconvenience (or frost bite) you might experience.
Oh -- and maybe call ahead for an ambulance. Cuz this is going to cause some serious artery blockage.
Enjoy the game!! And the food!! (Especially the food.)
