This post is not about the Super Bowl, but about the Super Bowl party that my friends and I have been having for the last several years! It started with June Reyes, our "friend to all", who loved feeding people with his wife Gail's food, and obviously loved having happy people around him!
Gail puts out a real spread, from hot wings and barbecue to some of June's and our favorite Filipino dishes, panzit (noodles) and lumpia (spring rolls) to mention a couple, and opens her home to everyone and their friends. I'm really not into professional football, so I won't mention who I wanted to win Super Bowl 50 (see image above).
Here is my contribution. I was out of town the whole week before the party, so I didn't do as much as I would have liked. These ham and cheese sliders have been a big hit at the SBP (Super Bowl Party). I made them a few years ago and they are now there every year by popular demand.
As you can tell, these are made from yummy King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, and I don't know anyone who doesn't love these all by themselves. I bought deli honey ham and provolone cheese from Sam's and cut the meat slices in half and the cheese slices into quarters. Janise helped me make 120 of these, and somehow there were five left at the end of the evening. Click on the picture above for the recipe!
Here are some of the goodies from other partiers! This is just a little of the food we brought home. There's Karen's Crack Dip (you can find the recipe for that by using the search feature), Gail's Spinach Dip (a Knoll's recipe), 15 bean soup, panzit, and hot wings. The Filipino pork medallions were made by our new friend, Blessie! There's a picture of cornbread I made to eat with the soup, with onions. Delicious! Here's the recipe for Friend Becca's Corn Salad!
Becca's Corn Salad
2-15 oz. cans whole kernel corn, drained
2 c grated cheddar cheese
1 c mayo
1 c green bell pepper, small dice
1/2 c red onions, small dice
1=10 oz. bag Fritos, crushed (or use as a dip with corn chips)
This salad was delicious! I won't tell you how much I ate!
The week before the Super Bowl I stayed with my friends Bo, Marley, Willie and my new friend, Cinder, the Yorkie, while my friends Jeff, Carrie, and Jeff, were on vacation. These are the sweetest pets, and I really miss them when I leave. This was my first time to stay with Cinder, and he is such a good dog. Look at Willie, she looks like she's in charge, right? Well, she was!
As her father would say, here's the most beautiful girl in the world! Here they are dressed for their first Father-Daughter Date! She is a happy baby! There's a lot of love there! I get to spend a little time with her this week, and I can't wait!
Here's what I did for Valentine's Day. My sister works for Read, Martin and Slickman, CPA's, and everyone in the office is so nice and willing to be my guinea pigs. These are some pretty sweet doughnuts and I love the easy recipe. I think I will cut back on the toppings next time I make them. I didn't buy doughnut pans, I made these in mini Bundt pans. Click on the picture above for the recipe!
The batch of doughnuts in the smaller picture is what I made for my cousins, Jeff and Amy. We celebrated Valentine's Day at The Steak House in Rockmart. They have the BEST steaks and the service there is always great! I forgot to take a picture of my prime rib, but that was Jeff's fault, because when he's here he's supposed to remind me!
Well, Friends, I've had a great couple of weeks, getting to do what I love to do best. I got to spend time with my doggie and cat friends, spend a lot of time with and cook for friends that I don't get to see enough of, and watch some football, and tomorrow I get to keep Sawyer while her parents are working and at school!
Until next time, Dished With Love, Denise!
A place to share my favorite things...friends and food, dogs, college football, and my inspiration, Sawyer, the most beautiful little girl in the world!
