Superbowl Fun

I am guessing everyone watched the Super bowl? WHO DAT! ha! Love it!! I was so happy to see the Saints win. Aaron had a bet going and sadly he lost bc he was pulling for the Colts but in the end he said he was okay bc he really wanted to see the Saints win. Guess what ladies?!?! I won $75.00 buckaroos too! We played squares and I won the final score....YAY FOR ME! I told Aaron he would get something real nice for Valentines now. haha! ;)

We had plenty of food to go around too. I have pictures but they need to be loaded so Ill post them at a later date. We had a small Super Bowl get together...really just family but it was a fun time. We had Wings galore with carrots, celery and ranch! Party Sandwiches....Im sure you have tried them...most of the time they are made with Hawaiian rolls but we used Sister Schuberts instead--you take Mustard, stick of butter and poppyseeds..mix well and spread on bread. Place ham and swiss cheese then bake at 350 until warm and cheese is melted. These are super easy and always popular. We had a sausage cheese platter, Rotel....oh gosh this was good. I always make regular rotel but this time I changed it up a bit. I used 1lb Velveeta, 1lb cream cheese, 2 cans of rotel and sausage! Ohhwee this was yummy!! Then for dessert I made Oreo truffles and I had some extra chocolate so I made chocolate covered strawberries! Hey Jennifer, I saw your comment yes the truffles were delicious...rich but yummy. Be sure and get SEMI SWEET CHOCOLATE you may have but I have messed up in the past and purchased maybe dark chocolate...not sure but it was yucky!!! blah! Give them a try again girl...they are too good!! :)
I was proud of myself I did not over do it make myself miserable. For some reason when I cook food....I find myself less likely to eat tons of it.....I guess this is bc I spent the time making it...who knows.

So I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Oh goodness....I woke up this morning to a winter wonderland. I had no clue we were getting snow but everything was covered. Our yard had 7 inches!!

XOXO

Yum all your food just made me hungry! That cheese dip sounds delicious! We could have used some veggies at our party I think they got replaced for spinach - dip that is.. not a very healthy replacement!

I was sad the the Colts didn't win (I live near Indianapolis), but Drew Brees went to Purdue (my alma mater) and it was soooo neat to see him win! How many people teared up w/ him as he held his adorable headphone wearing son after the win? A fun game to watch at our home! :)
