Superbowl Sunday

This Superbowl Sunday was definitely a success in my book, mainly for the reason that Ian and I did not end up with a double-case of horrifying food poisoning like we did 2 years ago.  In my small apartment with one bathroom, mind you. 

Let's just say ... we bonded.

This year was a lot less dramatic, and we were able to enjoy the company of our good friends and some tasty food as well.

We had quite a spread -- homemade pretzels and pretzel bites, deviled eggs, ham delights, brownies, two kinds of jalapeno poppers, quesadillas, and a veggie tray.  I made crab meltaways (bubbly crab & cheese mixture on top of English muffin halves), pigs in a blanket, and cookie dough dip that I found on Pinterest.

The dip in all its glory.
I'll post the recipe below - beware, it's addictive!

Our friends Lindsay and Casey hosted everyone, and I do have to say, they have the perfect home for a Superbowl party!  Big television for the guys with plenty of couch space, and the room opens to the kitchen, where we girls hung around a large island and nibbled.  They also have a television mounted in their screened porch so the party could spill over into the outdoors.

We bet on the final score of the game, and the pot got up to around $75.  Ian and I didn't walk away with the winnings, but it made the final moments of the game really exciting to watch.

Now for this amazing dip recipe from Add A Pinch.

Cookie Dough Dip

  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup toffee bits
  1. Cream together cream cheese and butter.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until well-combined.
  3. Serve with graham crackers or apple wedges.
I served with Granny Smith apple wedges and used light cream cheese to attempt to make it a smidge healthier.  After making it, I've decided to give it a shot with fat free cream cheese next time. 

It was absolutely delicious, and not a bit was left over at the end of the party!

Oh, and one more little thing -
I have an AMAZING giveaway that begins tomorrow.
