Game day fare

So today is the big day! The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs should be a pretty good game I think most of us New Englander’s are rooting for the 49ers since there quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo used to be a Patriot though I am torn because last year I thought and said out loud that Patrick Mahomes from the Chiefs is someone to watch and here we are – just saying!

Are you already preparing for the game later today? I haven’t started yet but I do have a plan and will be starting some Crockpot Chicken Chili once I finish writing this blog. The only thing my husband asked for was some wings. I am going to be doing some name dropping here. Franks Hot Sauce is our families favorite hot sauce. Which is saying something, we are not really hot sauce kinda people. We all like a little heat but there is a fine line and we all tend to stay away from ordering anything spicy out just in case their fine line is much higher than ours.

Last Friday at the office we had a tailgating party of sorts in preparing for the Super Bowl – yes even though the Patriots are not in it this year; not to say that everyone at work is a Pats fan but the majority is but we all like food so there’s that! I brought Espinaca dip which is always a hit. We will be having the rest of it a little later today.

I haven’t shared this dip recipe before so here it is. 32 ounce brick of Velveta, 1 brick of cream cheese, 2 cans of Rotel, 1 block of frozen spinach, thawed and drained. Add everything to a pot for the stove top or a slow cooker and heat until everything is melted and mixed together.

Here are a few other items I think would be awesome to share with your football fans, or the people who like to socialize with the people who like football fans. Or the ones that just show up to watch the halftime and commercials. Spam Bacon Bites would be a perfect fit for a party as well as Chicken-Parm Sliders to name a few. If there were more than just a few us I would make the seven layer dip Huevos Rancheros and 7 Layer Mexican Dip but since there isn’t I will just make some Guacamole & Sweet and Salty Wings for the big game

I do hope JLO and Shakira rock the house this year!
