The Super Bowl

YEAAAAAAAAAA....GOOOOOOOOOOO Patriots!! What can i say...This Boston Area is a little crazy right now waiting for the big one on Sunday!! My digi friend Dawns is requesting some ideas for Appetizers for the game...(i think she is for the other team but i still luv her)..so i thought i would post a few of my favorites here:
Bread Bowl with great Shrimp Dip:
2 - 8oz pkg of cream cheese
10oz of baby shrimp (canned) ...double it or add one shrimp and one crab
2 slices of red onion, diced
3 teaspoons of horseradish
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
Mix all the above , chill...just before serving put into Bread Bowl (i like the dark breads)..cut the scooped bread into bite size pieces and serve along with crackers, vegetable...

Meat Balls: this is always a big hit...so, double the recipe
2 pound of hamburg
salt and pepper
1 egg
4 slices toast, chopped
1 med.onion, chopped
roll into small meatballs and fry,drain.....(i cheat and use frozen Italian meatballs..easy)
Sauce:
1 12oz chili sauce
1/2 cup grape jelly
1 Tablespoon white vinegar
1/4 cup lemon juice (concentrate)
Mix the above and simmer on stove until jelly is melted
Simmer the meatballs in the sauce for 30 minutes....i put it in the crock pot on low and just let it go....

Take a nice big tray/platter and put some small bowls of store bought hummus, babaganoush, olives, tabouli...nice Middle Eastern treats...with pita and sliced vegetables - carrots,celery, peppers,cherry tomatoes

and then there is always your favorite Chili recipe with some corn bread....yummmmmm

Get some paper products of your favorite team (did i say Patriots)...wrap up the utensils in the napkins with ribbon (color) ..get some balloons to attach to your buffet table...throw some colored confetti on the table and there you go........

oh, yea.... GO PATS
