Crudités. Cheese cubes. Pretzels. Really? This is all we’re gonna offer our vegetarian friends come Sunday?! I don’t think so!
If you can chop 2 veggies, measure some spices, open cans, and toss everything into a CrockPot and walk away, you can have a delicious vegetarian/vegan Sloppy Joe on your Super Bowl table that will fool even the meatiest of meat eaters.
With slightly over a week left until the Big Dance, you’ve undoubtedly been scouring Pinterest, food blogs, mags, and the like – in search of the perfect dips, wings, drinks, spreads, sandwiches, and other glutinous goodies.
In your search – let me point you in the direction of today’s dip – that unbelievably doesn’t contain cheese or bacon – but get this… real live veggies!
As those of you who link up with me on Facebook know, I’ve recently been contemplating the fate of this here blog. Recent weeks, chats, and further thought have brought me no closer to knowing if this is the end… or not. But this I do know, if I’m going out, if this is where our journey ends, it ends with two of my favorite things… Food & Football!
So join me as we spend the next two weeks in 14 football foodie recipes, designed to tickle the taste buds of your Super Bowl watching pals. And if football isn’t for you, if you have no intention of watching the big game, no worries, these recipes stand on their own, are delicious, and perfect for your entertaining needs.
Now, on to the eats.
Decadence – unrestrained or excessive self-indulgence. Yeah, that’s this.
One truffle is all you’ll need to send you into bliss, but no one will judge for indulging in several more.
Procrastination. Over-extension. These things do not mix.
And they are… me.
I bring this up to illuminate the fact that there are Grand Marnier/cranberry/chocolate truffles that required more chilling, rolling, and dipping time than I allowed in my morning. They were supposed to be today’s post. And are not. Hence, this post.
Seven delectable dishes share the plate, but who are we kidding, you’ve picked your fav – the one you want to be the last bite of the meal. The closer.
This is such a morsel.
Tart, light, buttery, and palate cleansing, – this bar is like sorbet in cookie/bar form.
The bright burgundy hue. The gelatinous cylindrical form. The sexy little can indents.
You know what Thanksgiving treat I speak of… The ever-popular Ocean-Spray cranberry “sauce.”
I believe strongly, that this belongs on every Turkey Day table – but that doesn’t mean there isn’t space for an alternative – to play along side.
A grown-up version perhaps. Like say, with tequila and jalapenos!
