SUPER BOWL MENU???

I tend to always make the same things and wanted new ideas. I need something different. What will you be serving up?

Chicken Wings
Blue Cheese Dip (homemade)
7 layer Nacho Dip
Nachos for the non-LCers
Veggie/Meat/Cheese trays

LC pizza squares (with nancyelle's LC cheese crust)

Michelobe Ultra

I'd like to make some sort of crackers so I can have the nacho dip too. I usually just eat it with a spoon. Some sort of flat bread would be good.

GREAT POST

We are waiting for tickets to the SB so if that happens, whatever we can find at the stadium

BUT.....if we can't get the tickets then we are having a party at my inlaws. They have a 60" flat screen.

There will be oodles of food there but I will make sure I have hot wings, pizza sans the crust, veggies with dip, salad, deviled eggs, nuts...etc.

Maria, try those Almond Thins - the recipe is in the Stickies, I think - otherwise a search will turn it up. They are so good!

We're not having a party, per se, but we always have some SB goodies. Probably homemade clam dip with pork rind dippers, some cut-up veggies, salami and cheese, maybe some wings. I always make WAY too much stuff and then we have it again the NEXT night!

It IS yum and something I don't make too often because I want to scarf it all up!

Since I know somebody will ask here is the "recipe" - I'm a "throw together cook" by heart so these are approximates!

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 6 oz. can minced or chopped clams, drain and reserve liquid
Good pinch each garlic and onion powders
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Tabasco to taste

Mix together the cream cheese and seasonings til smooth, then stir in the clams. Add enough of the reserved liquid to get the consistency you want, and keep the rest to thin it later after refrigerating to blend flavors. Adjust seasonings to your taste!

What about taking some LC tortillas cutting them with a pizza cutter and baking them in a low oven until they get crispy?

Hot artichoke/spinach dip with celery for dipping, stuffed cherry peppers, and something with brie will be on our menu...

Linny - Wow.. good luck getting those tickets! And thank you for the Almond Thin link!

Lisa - Thank you for the link! BTW - I love reading your posts. You are such a wealth of knowledge!

Charski - Thank you for the clam dip recipe. I just happen to already have all of those ingredients on hand! And with all the positive comments on Almond thins, I think I'll give those a try.

Cowgirl - Using toasted low carb tortillas has crossed my mind in the past. I think I've never tried because I prefer to make my own so I know what's in it. But I'll read the package next time I go to the store.

Dizneegirl - Artichoke/Spinach dip! Why didn't I think of that! Probably because it is something I would over eat. But it IS the Superbowl, so maybe a little over indulgence would be ok? Could you share your recipe please?

Thank you for all the ideas!

I've already made my contribution to the Super Bowl Feast. Well, it will be thawed out and reheated on game day. Just a little chili that the wife was craving last Monday. Made a medium pot and froze the rest. My dad wants to make some chili with no tomato sauce. Not sure how that works. so if he's gonna make a pot I didn't want to make a large batch. This is my writeup on the process

Thanks. With very little traffic on the site I come to sites like this and post my content here pretty much word for word with the pics so I have people to talk to about grilling. I have all of about 8 comments on something like 30 threads on the site. It's basically my repository of the info and picture hosting site. It's sites like this where I come to get the dialogue going. There a million different ways to grill/smoke/indirect/BBQ and discussion here will help me learn a few more. Admittedly I usually do more of the teaching and offering advice but there are always tips I can learn.

As for the Microbrews, the O'Fallon stuff is PHENOMENAL!!! Schaefly is a good solid brewer but O'Fallon is the best. Their seasonal beers are out of this world. Their Wheat Peach beer in the summer (Wheach), the Pumpkin Ale in the fall and the Cherry Chocolate in the winter are all amazing. Can't remember the spring beer but I'll have it in 4-5 weeks so I'll try to remember to report back.

I'll probably use one of these off the net... I bought marinated artichokes, but Alton's looks soooo good!

Kraft Foods

1 can (14 oz.) artichoke hearts, drained, finely chopped
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, drained
3/4 cup KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese
3/4 cup KRAFT Mayo
1/2 cup KRAFT Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
1/2 tsp. garlic powder

HEAT oven to 350°F. Mix all ingredients; spoon into 9-inch quiche dish or pie plate. BAKE 20 min. or until heated through.

--

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
11/2 cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts
6 ounces cream cheese

I forgot to print recipes so had to come back! I'm trying the Almond Thins, and the Spinach Artichoke dip today. I'll try that clam dip another day, but definitely WILL try that one. I just put the pinto beans on to make refried beans for the nacho casserole. This is the one time I allow myself a few beans.

And Linny - I just cooked whole chicken the other day because I wanted chicken stew. I did not use all the chicken meat so there is plenty left to try your Chicken Enchilada Dip.

There are too many different things I want to make today!!!
