Yup, I wrote this out, copied it, and when I posted I got “page cannot be found.”   When I tried to paste it, there was nothing there.   Again.   Happened to be in Babble too.   UGHHHHH!!

Apparently the Super Bowl is today.

Do you have any plans?   What are you cooking/eating?

I have no plans.   I couldn’t even tell you who is planning.   We won’t watch any of it and we have no special food plans.

We went over to Mary & Danny's house as we do every year... this year was hard though.  I really did not want to go.  I was tired and plumb worn out from all this basement crap.  Yesterday our laundry tub pump went out and we had another flood when the laundry overflowed it... ugh!  Nothing was dry yet so not sure what if any more damage it caused...

Anyway... I was going to make heart attacks, bbq polish sausages, a dessert and buffalo cauliflower but we did not really have any extra money and I had leftovers from tacos with my parents so I made taco dip, spanish rice and pumpkin muffins to take.  I made a big ole pan of taco dip... like 11x 17 pan and we only had about 1/4 of it left.  But, we had quite a bit of the rice...

Mary had sloppy joes, cheese dip, 3 kinds of wings and a veggie tray.  Others brought BLT Dip, cheeseball & crackers, chips & dip, chocolate no-bake cookies & acorns (baby peanut butter cookie with a chocolate kiss adhered to one side).  Not crazy heavy with the food this year but it was okay... we had less people too.

I wanted the 49'ers to win too... and they almost pulled it out .... i didn't get to see their "almost" comeback because when the power went out, we waiting at Mary's for a while but then went on home and then I went to bed.  My hubby didn't get to go to the party because he was at the house with the basement guy... he said he'd be there at 5:00 but didn't show until 7:00 and after they were done there was no sense in my hubby coming over.

I loved the Dorito commercial where the little girl bribed her dad with a bag of Doritos to play dress up with her.  When his buddies caught him, she bribed them too so Mom came home and caught them all in make up, dress up clothes and one of them even had her wedding dress on.... funny stuff!  Of course the Oprah Winfrey narrated commercial tugged at everyone's heart.  I missed a lot of the commercials after I went to bed.

Oh... and guess what, Renee?  I won $25 in the squares!!!  Ours were only $1 each.  I won in the 3rd quarter!!

It was a messy and time consuming process.  I didn't have a problem with the melty part.  But I definately had more dredge on my fingers than on the mozz sticks.

Mozz sticks were pretty good, but I sure hate the sticky-gluey process. I froze the cheese a couple days before, but I should have breaded them and froze them ready to go in the oven. Some of them got too melty....

I didn't hear them announce the children's choir, but when the name came onto the bottom of the screen, I started crying.  Then out came Jennifer Hudson and ruined the song.  I think she oversang it.  Aleica Keys did really well on the National Anthem.  I can't remember the last time I've seen someone play an instrument AND sing.  We were pulling for the 49er's and they did their best to make it a great game.  We watched from the comfort of our couch and I didn't make anything special. 

My 3 yo nephew said that the 49er's were playing the raisins. ;)

Cara - what did you think of the skinny mozz sticks?  My clan loved them.

Sandy, that was heart wrenching.

Some of the commercials were funny too. The Go Daddy.com was gross. Could have done without it. Yuck.

I would have cried.   But, as predicted, my TV never turned to the game one time.  We watched some of the Gypsy show marathon on TLC, then found some ghost shows to watch.

So for those that watched the Super Bowl - was there a dry eye in the house when the 26 members of the Sandy Hook Elementary School took the field?

It's 49ers vs. Ravens. Both the coaches are brothers. Should be a good game. I'm pulling for the 49ers.

I'm making potato soup in the crockpot. I'll post the recipe if it's any good. Baylie has plans the rest of us will be watching at home. Exactly where I want to be. Plopped on my couch in comfort clothes. Go 49ers!!

Cute Valentine's sig, Renee - Daisy? Nice work, Daisy!! If Tristan's grades were better, he would be watching the game, but they aren't, so we won't even have it on. DH and I couldn't care less! We do have "Super Bowl Snacks" on the menu, though. Nachos, the Healthy Mozzarella sticks from SkinnyTaste.com(hope they turn out, never tried them before), etc. Just an excuse to eat! I need to do my weekly grocery shopping, and would really like to go and get it done now, but I will wait until 2:30 (kick-off) so all the clueless men looking for beer and chips will be gone. Shopping on Super Bowl Sunday BEFORE the game is crazy. I learned my lesson last year!

We will watch.  I like football.  No special food.  But whatever we have will be easy eating  in front of the TV stuff.
