Super Bowl Success


We didn't have any stake in the game, financially or emotionally, but the Superbowl is always a good time.  It's basically an American holiday and what else is a holiday for if not food and beer?



A big bowl of guac is always necessary.  We usually make a simple pico with onions, tomatoes, cilantro, jalapeno and lime to add to the half a dozen smashed avocados.  I think it makes the freshest guacamole.



These little crostinis for the spinach and artichoke dip were extra special because after a drizzle of olive oil we rubbed an open garlic clove on both sides of each piece.  Yup, garlic is that strong that all you need is a little contact and you have the flavor.


Before.



 After.



Wings!  I make a basic baked chicken wing.  I toss them in olive oil, salt and pepper before I bake them.  Right out of the oven I toss them in my favorite sauce the classic Franks Red Hot.


We made our own dip with just sour cream and gorgonzola.  It's slightly healthier than what you can buy prepackaged, but not by much.  I just prefer the taste.


Nachos!


After a layer of chips and cheese, then another layer of chips and cheese, we added beans and jalapenos.  We baked them just until the cheese melted.


we slow cooked pork shoulder for a little over 6 hours so it pulled apart perfectly to top the nachos.


Mmmmm!  Overall success.
