The Superbowl will be here soon and we’re gathering our Game Day recipes now. Sheila makes a great chickpea dip – lots of flavor and easy to put together, so we thought we’d add it to the munchies table this year. You know, the table where people graze all afternoon and evening in between the chili and pizza and sandwich snacks. Nobody ever died eating it, so we figure it’s a keeper. 😉
Thanksgiving is coming! Thanksgiving is coming! Yay! Sheila and I were at the store earlier and picked up a few odds and ends – mostly the salad fixings, since the guests will be bringing some of the side dishes. I stocked up on the canned pumpkin. I can never get enough pumpkin, so I am making pumpkin soup to go with my sandwiches both before and after Turkey Day. 🙂
This is a super easy recipe. No chopping! I use the pumpkin can to measure the milk, and all the ingredients go straight into the pot. Minimal cleanup and it’s ready in 15 minutes. Sheila says she likes the soup, but I have a sneaking suspicion that she likes the fact that all she has to do is show up to the lunch table and enjoy. 🙂
The Big Game should only be watched with nachos in hand. That’s a given. But, what kind of nachos? Is there more than one kind? Turns out there are as many different kinds of nacho recipes as there are chili or stew recipes.
Movie nachos – the kind with the fake cheese poured on top of a mound of tortilla chips. Best I ever had were served in a theater in Texas. Soooooo good.
Home nachos – tortilla chips, salsa and shredded cheese piled on a plate, nuked in the microwave and then scooped up with the tortilla chips. Quick and easy; can be tossed together during a commercial break.
Party nachos – everything and the kitchen sink piled on a plate and scooped up with tortilla chips.
Super party nachos – a nacho casserole made with layers of anything the cook thinks goes together. Anything. The only constant being the tortilla chips at the bottom. You eat this with a fork. Or maybe a spoon.
Here’s our version – hearty enough to be a meal and taste tested by a few football pals, and me, of course. J
