Superbowl Suicide!

Wait, who was playing?

Ummmmm

Just kidding (sorta).

Anyway, it's pretty much my job to FEED those who actually know who's playing......

So, again, THANK HEAVENS FOR PINTEREST and all of the awesome inspiration I get from it!  
As much time as I spend on Pinterest, I'm pretty sure it's still less time 
than I used to spend perusing cook books. 
(I'm sticking to that)

I was obviously in the mood for something chocolate!  Haha!

So here's what we ended up serving to our football fans.....

Veggie Platter with bacon cheddar dip
I absolutely love veggie platters, but the squash and cucumbers were extra fabulous this time around!
(huge thanks to my son Grady for chopping up all of the veggies)


Crab Cheese ball rolled in chopped pecans


check out these cute little football shaped pretzels!


Good ol' standby, guacamole...

and the best and easiest fresh salsa ever!  
(look below for the recipe)

Brooke brought this divine white chocolate popcorn
(she also brought wonderful mint brownies!)


Here is a delicious new recipe I tested for ... 






easy to make and very fun and yummy


My personal favorite, by a hundred-fold were 
Brooke's grilled chicken-stuffed bacon-wrapped jalepenos.

OH
MY
!!!GOSH!!! 

Yes, I'll have 10 please!


I also tried out another new recipe....
for dessert.

It was so rich it made us all feel sick....but yum, it was worth it!  lol
(Paula Deen would be so proud)

My first attempt ever at

Trifle!

covered in chopped up Reese's peanut butter cups and crushed Oreos.
(To fill the trifle bowl I had to 1 1/2 the recipe)

Cowboy and I were so full that we didn't eat again til 5 o'clock the next night!  Haha!



As promised, 
here's our favorite 

SALSA RECIPE

SUPER easy and SUPER delicious!
(many things to the King family!!!)

2 regular sized cans of chopped tomatoes
2 whole green chile's (I usually use canned, but when in season the fresh are even better)
1/2 bunch cilantro (just the leafy part)
6-8 green onions
8 Tepins (dried seeds which can be found in some Mexican food aisles in the seasoning section)
(these are SUPER hot....don't use more than 8 unless you like fire)
Garlic salt, to taste

Blend it all in your food processor.

That's it.

See, I told you it was easy!  ;)
