Superbowl Snafu

Like those poor Steelers whose first touchdown was rejected by the refs - my Superbowl menu is in jeopardy.

Know this:

I have conferred with Miss Lee daily about the Superbowl menu
We've discussed the merits of a healthy menu - she agreed
I described the lovely panini and crunchy slaw with the OH Henry bars - she said "Great!"


She had asked earlier in the week about chicken wings and we agreed on the menu. Today she wanted to have wings for lunch. We're having chicken on the panini or the sandwiches and cole slaw as she called them. I knew I was in trouble. We had Chinese for lunch. On the drive home she began reviewing this week's evening schedule. She quickly noted that if I had a meeting tomorrow she would have Jose Ole Mexican mini tacos 42 to a box and queso (cheese dip). A beloved treat for her. Then she said, "I should make the cheese dip today. Oh I can have cheese dip and tortilla chips." I once again offered the notion of a healthy meal. At this point she shared her opinion on Super Bowl food. According to Miss Lee you are never supposed to eat healthy food for the Super Bowl. Wings, loaded skins, queso, KFC, fritos, fried cheese stix, lots of beer need I go on? That is the ideal menu. Oh you can have celery sticks with the bleu cheese dressing for the wings. I guess it is a very healthy meal...sigh...

I lost the game before Jennifer Hudson sang and the teams even played the first down.

Queso Dip

1 can Rotel - hot, or medium if you are not a Texan
1 lb. velveeta cheese food cut into cubes

Combine the Rotel and the Velveeta in a medium bowl. Melt the cheese in the microwave a minute at a time. Stir after each heating cycle.

I have nothing more to say on this topic other than we will be eating the panini and the brocolli slaw with Asian dressing and we will LOVE it.
