I’ve been trying to figure out a menu for the Super Bowl tomorrow. It will be just my husband and I. He’s not a big football fan. (But he loves the commercials!) However, I am a big fan. And I am a New England Patriots fan at that! (Haters, be nice. I have been a fan my entire life.) I am very excited that the Super Bowl is tomorrow and that my favorite team is playing! So I have to do something a little ‘extra’ special for a menu, right? Well, here’s the start. I made a tasty Queso Dip today. This will sit over night and I’ll heat it up again tomorrow before the big game. It’s so easy and only uses 4 ingredients.

Ingredients:
16 ounces of Velveeta Cheese
4 oz cream cheese
10 oz can of Rotel (diced tomatoes)
1 lb of ground pork sausage

Instructions:
Cut the Velveeta and cream cheese into cubes. Then place in a bowl to melt in the microwave. Cook the pork sausage until it is browned. Sprinkle some salt/pepper if you’d like. Add the tomatoes, mix well and heat for a few minutes. Stir in the cheese until thoroughly mixed. Heat through. Pour into container and served with your favorite tortilla chips! This keeps well for about a week in the fridge. Melt a little in a small bowl and have with chips for an afternoon snack!

Turkey Cheese Platter #thanksgiving #appetizer

Here’s a fun cheese platter to bring to your Thanksgiving gathering! I saw this on Facebook and had to recreate it for the holiday. No instructions needed, just layer your cheeses and pepperoni and crackers to resemble a turkey. I used habanero and cheddar cheeses. We like a little spice in our lives! For the turkey head, I used a a small cookie cutter. Simple and fun!
