Game Day Food For Your Face

Thursday, October 10, 2013

First off I would like to say that although I am a fabulous cook I occasionally on the reg take a night off from whipping up the tantalizing gourmet dinners for my childrens and feed them some crap just like every other busy working or stay at home mom on the planet. Cause I'm pretty sure fish sticks and fries won't land my kids on the comfy couch spilling their guts in 10 years. I don't sweat that stuff. So here is last night's entry into the "Mom of the Year" cooking contest...
See how I made it all artsy with the ketchup and stuff?

Any way since my focus this week has been on eating healthier and trying to drop some lb's I thought I might re-cap a couple of figure un-friendly recipes that I recently made for a game day extravaganza. Because they were  sooo good there was none left and people keep asking me for the recipes. Those are the ones you want to serve! Cause here's the truth... if there is food left after a party I will eat it. Cause I could live on appetizer-y stuff, in case I never mentioned that. Oh and if it is anything inside of puff pastry, filo dough or a crispy won ton.... that involves brie... like this....
shut the front door I am finishing it for sure. 

So anyway back to the game day face stuffing favorites. First up the old stand by Chili Cheese Dip and it has 3 ingredients so what's not to like about that. If you have never made it you have probably eaten it and if you have ever eaten it you know why every time I make it the plate is scraped clean. Here's all you need...

 And when you put it all together you end up with this... 
Cream cheese on the bottom, then chili, then shredded cheddar. Bake till bubbly. 
Commence to the face stuffing. Unbutton your pants.... maybe, not that I would do that.

And then finally the sweet stuff! My all time fave combo in the candy world is peanut butter and chocolate and this little gem has only 2 Ingredients... whose your Mommy now? Reese's Peanut Butter Cups (I used the dark this time and they were a big hit) and peanut butter slice and bake cookie dough. Here's you plan of action... Gather ur stuff, Open your adult beverage, unwrap ur cups, slice up your dough into 1/4" thick slices, Cut that doughy goodness into 4 equal pieces, press a chunk of dough into all your mini muffin cups, bake those tasty treats for 9-11 minutes at 350 (you really want em a little under done), take em out and  smoosh a peanut butter cup into each one quickly. Let cool in pan or in fridge (or freezer if you can't wait) and once again... proceed to feed. 
I promise you won't have any left but you will impress your loser friends that don't jack about cooking!
