snack attack

I spent most of the afternoon in the kitchen on Sunday getting snacks ready for manfriend and kiddo ahead of the game.  Here was the spread…obviously kiddo and his dad are not embracing my attempt at vegan eating:

Fresh Salsa, I just chopped three tomatoes, half a large green pepper, 2 ears of fresh corn, 1/2 c of cilantro and mixed with a dash of lime juice and 2 spoonfuls of chili sauce.   Amazing.

Nachos (melt cheese over nachos, tough stuff.)

Honey Lemon Garlic wings, you can find the recipe here.   I threw some honey on them for the last five minutes of baking and manfriend loved them.  He’s a wing expert.

Twice baked potatoes, which are always amazing.   The big game version had bacon and cheese in them, but I’ve made them vegan many times with a little bit of Earth Balance and some veggies or herbs mixed in.

There were also lots and lots of veggies.  If my kid is allowed to eat anything with bacon in it, he better be housing some serious veggies along with it.

Hope you enjoyed the snacking Big Game!

I wish I had taken pics of our eatfest on Superbowl Sunday but my blackberry was dead and I have yet to replace my digital camera.   PS….this blog basically negates the last one where I bitched about losing weight…I didn’t totally overdo it, but I definitely did extra situps the next day.

 We don’t even LIKE football but for some reason I felt the need to spend hours in the kitchen to get our snack on including THE GREATEST WINGS EVER!!!!  My manfriend is obsessed with wings (the folks at Wings Over Albany and Madison’s must know him personally) and  awhile ago I had seen a great recipe on Samster Mommy’s blog for Lemon Garlic Wings (love her site, she has the greatest recipe’s and the coolest crafts…explore her land o’blog).  The Lemon Garlic Wings were ridiculously easy to make, and even though I only marinated them for like an hour they were absolutely full of flavor.   Check out the Lemon Garlic Wing recipe here.

We also chowed down on crab stuffed mushroom caps, steamed corn, kick ass raw veggies and homemade salsa…it was a noteworthy snacking session..so much so that I fell asleep for the last quarter (are there quarters in football) of the game.  The crab stuffed mushroom caps were tasty but I just kind of did them, I didn’t follow a recipe and now wish I had for duplication…it was a flurry of canned crap, basil and I think chilli powder…next time I’ll bring a pen to my snack session.
