It happened you guys. Call it a gust of wind in my sails. A wind beneath my wings. A fire under my butt. The dawning of a new day.
Maybe it’s the killer Redskins game I went to on Monday. The hustle, bustle, and merriment of the holiday season. Or just more sleep. Whatever it is, like my boy Constanza says, “I’m back, baby!”
I’m super-mega pumped to bring you some great holiday ideas and recipes in the coming month, so let’s get started!
Pickles. The lovely Mrs. of The Oblongs. A favorite pre-game spot to grab a drink. One of my many nicknames. Curbs cravings. Goes insanely well in a dip!
We did it. We survived the first week of the 2012 football season. RG3 made a lot of people in my parts remember why they ever signed on for Skins fandom. Peyton made me remember why I love him so, even in that terrible orange jersey.
And stomachs all across this great land cried out for Tums, and a week of rest.
With that thought in mind… on to the dip!
Depending on your team of choice, each year holds something different for you. For us sad Browns fans,
all most years we chalk up to “rebuilding.” For other teams, that Lombardi Trophy is so close, yet so far away. Others plain suck, but look forward to that nice draft pick. Others feel like sting of riding that middle .500. And others, believe it or not, just win!
This year, and this team of Touchdown Thursdays, we’re going all the way. No mediocrity. No buffalo chicken dip. No football decorated cupcakes. This is “put on your big girl panties, and DIG. IN. food.”
Enough with the pep talk, on to the hot deliciousness.
The Fantasy line-up is set. The jersey perfectly rumpled. The beer cold. The chips and dip aplenty. Dish with clear line of sight of the southern sky – for maximum Sunday ticket reception.
It’s here dear friends. The day of days… NFL FOOTBALL!!!
Chips and dip. Crackers and spread. There are approximately 6.8 billion combinations of the two, and like the quest for the Holy Grail, I will never tire of tracking down and making all of them.
I obviously have no idea how many combinations there are, but I’m guessing there are as many as there are people on the planet to come up with them. These simple, comforting, and wonderful snacks are truly one of life’s greatest pleasures. That time, I wasn’t exaggerating.
What could be better than a beautiful bounty of fresh green spring vegetables? Said bounty coupled with cheese and served in dip form, obviously!
Get your dip hand strong cause this guy is creamy, cheesy, zippy and the perfect way to pretend to get your veggies.
