It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

23 Jan

**There’s a party I’m hosting, and weenies for roasting, and sandwiches fresh from the stove.

There’ll be funny commercials, some plays controversial, and beer will be surely a flow!**

That’s right, it’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Superbowl time! You may be thinking “wow, this girl is one football fan.” No, not at all!  I am celebrating the end of the season!  The end of Saturday and Sunday long, listening to my husband yell at the tv, don’t you dare change that channel, torture.  It’s a glorious time and requires lots of planning on my part.  This year is going to be a little different because we will actually have guests so, I’ve got to start my party planning!  The menu this season will be as follows:

Ham Delights

ham delights

It’s real easy, you buy a tin of those little dinner rolls that they sell in the bread isle.  Cut it in half, so you have a top and bottom.  Layer with ham and swiss cheese.  Place top half back on (or as some people call it, “the lid.”) Melt 1/3 cup butter.  Mix in 1 tbs mustard, 1 tbs poppy seeds, 1/3 tsp Worcestershire sauce.  Now spread that junk all over the top of them rolls, cover it up in some foil, and bake that stuff for 20 minutes at 350.  Mmmmm.

Mini Pigs in a Blanket

I don’t feel like I really need to explain this recipe, but for those that absolutely have no idea, here it is.  Cheap red hotdogs, crescent rolls.  Cut em, roll em up, bake em.  Yum.

Slut Brownies

Slut Brownies

This is an easy one too.  Pre-made chocolate chip cookie dough.  Layer it on the bottom of a baking dish or pan.  Drop in a layer of oreo cookies, Then you get some brownie mix (the cheap kind), make it according to the directions on the box, and pour that goop all over those oreos.  350, bake it for 30-35 minutes, and mmmm.  I suggest waiting a while to cut them because they will crumble and not be pretty if you do it while they are hot.

(Just a note:  These are not pictures of the food that I have actually made, but it will look exactly like it.  I will post pics of mine in my follow-up blog about how great life is post-football)

We will probably have some chips and dip and I may throw in something fruity, but this is the easiest, best tasting Superbowl menu by far! After all my food is cooked, I like to pull out the nice Wilton Armetale silver platters to serve it on.  Gotta keep it classy!

    Ohhhh….slut brownies are freakin’ awesome. I feel your pain about football season. I’m always so happy because I can have the tv back. I get my Sundays back. I get my living room back. It is the most wonderful time of the year. Better than Christmas, better than the fourth of July, not as good as my birthday.

    And don’t forget the glorious end to Fantasy Football. Even if there was no Superbowl party you should celebrate the end of Fantasy Football.

      Thank goodness johnny has not entered the world of fantasy football. There’s still basketball, hockey, golf, soccer, baseball, rugby, nascar, horse racing, dog racing, wwe, mma, raw, chicken fighting, and several other “sports,” but football is almost over!

    Those brownies look so good-but I wish they had a different name. That is a turnoff for me, for some reason. I was thinking of putting an oreo in the bottom of each one of the cupcakes I am making for Maddie’s birthday party. Strawberry oreo cupcakes?

      Sorry, laresa. I didn’t make up the name. What if I call them “laresa brownies?” Haha, get it?

    What are you trying to say, exactly?


    • juliecfletcher January 23, 2013 at 8:23 pm #

      Ummmm….that you are awesome? Hahahahaha!

        I thought that was what you meant! Just double-checking.

    Laresa can call them “promiscuous” brownies. I didn’t see her being all “sensitive” about the slut brownies when she was scarfing them down at the beach last October. She wasn’t turning down the chocolate chip-oreo cookie-brownie goodness then. Yep, I distinctly remember her eating at least 4-5 brownies during that……..oh no. Nevermind, that was me. I got confused for a second. Yummy, delicious, promiscuous brownies……mmmmmmmm.

      Hahaha, yeah Casey, that was you scarfing down the promiscuous brownies. Laresa was in the kitchen pouring canned cheese down her throat!!! I’ve never in my life seen one person kill a can of Easy Cheese in less than 24 hours BY THEMSELVES!


      • Laresa January 25, 2013 at 2:06 am #

        That stuff is good. I wish I had a can of cheese sitting next to me right now! It would be gone.
