I suppose everyone is gearing up for big game this weekend ... oddly enough, I'm not. There's a lot going on Chez Diva and we really don't have a horse in this race ... so no big Super Bowl plans to report on my end.
If you are gearing up to watch and host, I offer a few quick and easy recipes from the archives that might suit your snacking needs:
Herbed White Bean Spread - somewhat akin to hummus and really good when paired with raw veggies, pita chips or any kind of cracker.
Zesty Old Bay Dip - serve with chips for an unexpected and thoroughly delicious alternative to onion dip.
Creamy Spinach and Feta Dip - (pictured above) my personal favorite! This dip is so good - and versatile too. Its perfect paired with raw veggies and any kind of chip ... and I've even used the leftovers for a quick and easy pasta sauce. Bonus, its healthy too ... but don't tell your guests, they won't even notice!
This afternoon, I'm off to attend the grand re-opening of our local Ronald McDonald House's kitchen. Former Top Chef contestants Dave Martin and Andrea Beaman will be on hand to help inaugurate the new, state-of-the-art kitchen and they'll be doing a little mini-challenge with the kids. Should be fun!
Needless to say I'll post a full report next week. And, who knows, I might actually cook something and post about it then too. Stranger things have happened ... stay tuned!
So what are you up to this weekend? Are you hosting for the big game or stuffing yourself with someone else's chow? Curious Diva wants to know.
Enjoy the weekend!
