I really hate to say that, however, the Super Bowl last night just didn't do it for me. The half-time show featuring Beyonce'...excuse me but that was not my idea (or anyone else at my house) of entertainment.
I didn't understand one word and the choreography, shall we say, was not anything more but exaggerated sex moves. That's not entertainment to me. So...off my soapbox I go.
The best parts of the weekend for me were two things: a learned how to play cribbage and I tried two new recipes. My pictures turned out blurry so bear with me.
The first one was a Chocolate Pecan Pie from Country Living Magazine November 2012.
Next up, is Cheddar Bacon Pull Apart Bread
Here's the recipe:
1 unsliced loaf of (round is preferable) sourdough bread,( I used regular bread)
8-12 oz cheddar cheese, thinly sliced
3 oz bag Oscar Mayer Real Bacon bits (I fried up real bacon, drained and crumbled)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tbsp Ranch dressing mix
Using a sharp bread knife cut the bread going both directions. Do not
cut through the bottom crust. Place slices of cheese in between cuts.
Sprinkle bacon bits on bread, making sure to get in between cuts. Mix
together butter and Ranch dressing mix. Pour over bread. Wrap in foil
the entire loaf in foil and place on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees
for 15 minutes. Unwrap. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, or until
cheese is melted.

In addition to that, we had bbq riblets, bacon wrapped sausages in chili sauce, a great nacho jalepeno cheese dip and potato soup. We were bursting at the seams.
