Football Sunday Snacks

Ravens v Broncos: Gritty and amazing. While I certainly hope for a good game between my Pats and the Texans, I really don't need to it to be that much of a nail-biter. And is anyone else wondering if that was the game of the year? Will the Super Bowl be as good? Also, Colin Kaepernick is quite impressive! I thought as much when they came to Foxboro, and he impressed me even more against the Packers last night. THIS is football!

For some inexplicable reason, I thought the games today were at the same time as the ones yesterday, and therefore had gads of time to get some recipes together. I don't have as much time as I thought! Here are snacks I'm making for the Seattle/Atlanta game. Normally I prefer to make something before sharing it, but I'm going to take a chance with the Chipotle Black Bean dip, as I trust the source. Visit this blog post for home-made guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip and whole wheat, garlic pita chips. My pita bread is thawing on the counter and If I can procure some ripe avocados, I'll whip up the guacamole. The spinach dip is a definite, though!

Happy, yummy Football Sunday! Go Pats!
