I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’ve looked forward to today for a long time. Alright, for maybe a week or so. Superbowl, you may ask? Absolutely. Well, what it stands for anyway. I have to admit, I couldn’t care less about the actual game (if our Panthers ever go again, I’m sure that’ll change). To me, Superbowl Sunday is about everything that goes along ‘with it’.
Commercials. All those funny commercials that when asked about on Monday I can never remember (clears throat). Lazing around my jammies all day long with a nice hot fire blazing. The musical acts – I could take or leave Madonna, but I simply can’t wait for Blake and Miranda’s duet of ‘God Bless America’. Never to be last on the list… my chili.
Oh, chili – let me count the ways I love you. I cherish each and every ingredient that goes into making a love-filled batch. You see, I couldn’t use these ingredients in my old life because it wasn’t permitted. Now that the rules are out the window so to speak, consider it no holds barred. It’s not just meat, beans and a seasoning packet anymore, baby (meh). How ’bout starting out with some kickin’ seasoned ground beef, 2 different kinds of beans, couple cans of seasoned diced tomatoes, diced garlic, onion, habanero and bell pepper, hot Rotel, hot chili powder, and towards the end of it’s cooking life, a
nice little half-bottle of cayenne pepper? Hey, if this sounds bland to you I’m always open to suggestions. Being that I’ve had chili-making policies to follow all of my adult life, you could say I’m a ‘chili rookie’ of sorts. Oh, and mustn’t forget the sour cream, grated cheese and jalapenos upon serving time. And the ‘Tostitos with a hint of jalapeno’. And the cornbread. And the Hawaiian rolls. Oh and pay no attention to the wine in the background. It’s, um… just for looks.
Prior to the main course, we’ll have Queso for an appetizer. How I do love that Velveeta and HOT Rotel. Have I mentioned I like it hot?
Happy Game Day to those of you who watch – I hope you enjoy it in your own special and memorable way!
I’m excited to eat my weight in buffalo chicken dip tonight!

Looks good – I would love it, but it wouldn’t love me!

Thanks Mom – I just tested it and whoooooo. I think I’ll name it ‘Only the Strong Survive” chili. 🙂

I’m doing hot dogs, baked beans/honey and potato salad.

Actually, I like hot dishes but I seldom cook hot dishes because my children can’t eat them. Chill and habanero looks so hot. Yummy.

I can understand that Cocomino, we have to be sensitive to our children’s tummies. 🙂

I saw on twitter that Madonna did great so kudos to her for that, considering that she’s not really good at doing live performances — IMO. Anyhow, beef is my favorite meet and the fact that you mentioned it as one of the ingredients there made me salivate like a crazy dog. That’d be a lot of fun. I mean, eating what you cooked there while watching the most anticipative SUPERBOWL. 🙂

She did good, but IMO she was carried by her fellow artists she had with her. Haha, thanks Sony it really was good… I ate WAY too much yesterday. 🙂
