This fall we gave up cable. Okay, I should say that the Mister gave up cable. I never wanted it in the first place. He felt the money was better spent elsewhere. I was thrilled. The TWO television shows that we watch are available through Amazon TV passes, so we’re good.
It has, however, put a crimp in my foodball activities this fall and winter. No football games on TV, no occasion to make some yummy snacks.
Thanks to a tip from my friend Jessika (with a K), we streamed the playoffs, so we’ll be streaming the Super Bowl as well. And digging into some of these yummy snacks:
Dips & Dippers:
- Artichoke Chile Dip
- Cactus Salsa
- Easy Veggie Tray
- Flavored Cream Cheese
- Fresh Guacamole
- Garlic Lime Hummus
- Healthier Spinach Dip
- Homemade Salsa
- Jalapeno Cheese Dip
- Mom’s Relish Tray
- Really Homemade Seven Layer Dip
- Sour Cream Onion Dip (or use 1-2 Tablespoons of Homemade Onion Soup Mix in 1/2 cup sour cream)
Presentation Tip: Place the dip in a martini glass. Place the glass in the bowl before adding the chips. The dip will be elevated above the chips allowing easy access to both without having to buy a dedicated chip and dip bowl. Check that picture above, you can just glimpse the stem of the glass going into the bowl.
- Cranberry Basil Baked Brie
- Easy Jalapeno Poppers with Rice and Bacon
- Garlic Brie Bread
- Jalapeno Popper Nachos
- Mushrooms Stuffed with Mustard Greens and Bacon
- Potstickers with Dipping Sauce
- Roasted Garlic and Baked Goat Cheese
- Slow Cooked Sweet & Sour Meatballs
Presentation Tip: Don’t bring out the hot stuff until the bulk of your crowd has arrived. Let the early birds and punctual folk much on chips and dips at first. Then bring out the warm appetizers as a second shift. Or, if you’d rather, serve the hot stuff to the folks who show up on time.
- Cheddar Coins (Healthy Cheez-Its)
- Maple Spiced Pepitas and Almonds
- Nanna’s Caramel Corn
- Nut-Free Monkey Munch Trail Mix
- Stovetop Popcorn
Presentation Tip: With cold and flu season upon us, don’t set up a big bowl of tiny munchies for every Tom, Dick, and Harry to stick his grubby hands in. Pre-portion these snack foods into smaller vessels, like tasting cups (aka shot glasses), ramekins, or even silicone muffin cups.
