Another year and another Super Bowl behind us!! Was a good game, but I’ll be honest, it was more about the food then the game for me LOL
This year I decided to finally try this Crack Dip I kept seeing on Pinterest. After deciding on which one of the recipes to use, I made it and let it do its thing in the fridge overnight. When I put it out for us to try, I could see how it lives up to its name!! The creamy, ranchy, bacony, cheesy goodness was a tad on the salty side (which is fine!!), but served with an array of veggies made a better compliment then chips. And we couldn’t stop eating it LOL Will definitely make this again sometime!! It’s too yummy to make often though 😉
I also chose to make meatballs, because I knew we’d have leftovers for another meal or two. I came across the recipe for these Thai Chili and Cranberry Meatballs on Pinterest as well. I usually make meatballs differently, but thought I’d change it up this time. I threw all the ingredients into the crock pot and cooked on low for 2 hours. It turned out great – we enjoyed the flavour of sweet and spicy very much. It’ll taste even better over rice later this week too!!
When I first heard of this, from a friend, I was like…’what?!’ LOL But I was told that it was amazing. So I looked it up and found the recipe, through the Today’s Parent Forum to try out, for Super Bowl sunday a few weekends back. It was pretty simple to make, and even though we made it without the bread bowl the original recipe calls for, it still turned out very yummy!! Mind you, what ISN’T yummy, when bacon and cheese is involved right?! 😉 I’d definitely recommend you try this out for yourselves, as I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!!
Made a super simple Pasta Bake tonight. Started off by sauteeing 2 onions, minced garlic, 2 zucchinis, mushrooms (1 package), roasted red peppers (1 small jar – about 4 peppers), dried red pepper flakes and ground black pepper. At this point I added one of our favourite jars of pasta sauce. During this time, I had the spiral pasta boiling. Once cooked, I mixed the sauce and pasta together. Then I placed half the mixture in a 9×13 dish, and sprinkled 1 cup of shredded mozzarella cheese, before putting the rest of the mixture on top and sprinkling another cup of cheese. Once that’s done, you stick it into a 375 degree oven for 20-25mins or until heated through.
So, I was thinking, I haven’t had a pizza bagel in AGES. Remember those? Now, I’m not talking about the store bought frozen kind. I’m talking about the homemade kind. Whether you made it as a teen, or your Mom or someone else made it for you, it brought back a bit of nostalgia for me 🙂
I took an Everything bagel (any bagel of your choosing), spicy pizza sauce, real turkey breast (any meat or veggies or both of your choosing) and Kraft 4-Cheese Italiano blend (or any melty cheese of your choosing). Now, the best way to make this, is in the oven – hands down. But, if you don’t want to bother with the oven, I’d suggest toasting the bagel first before putting it into the microwave for melting. Of course you’ll get a crisper result in the oven, but if you don’t have the time, the microwave melts just as well minus the crisp bagel. Either way, it’ll be ooey gooey delicious!!
