(Really I was only rooting for them because they were the underdog, I didn’t want Peyton Manning to win, and my boyfriend Jeremy Shockey is on the Saints. (I was all about his white trashiness when he was on the Giants.)
If you remember, last year’s Super Bowl theme was bacon. Oh, gluttonous bacon. This year’s theme, although not at our house, was…. CHEESE. Oh yes, CHEESE. And it was amazing. Dave made these amazing Blue Cheese and Chicken Parcels, which in my opinion were the hit of the party. Well, that and our friend Robin’s “Cheese”cake.
After all that cheese yesterday, and the fact that we’re both gluttonous, Dave and I have decided that going forward we’re going to try and make one vegetarian meal, and only one meal w/ cheese for each week that we meal plan. (We’ll see how long this lasts!) For this week we have:
- THE BEST MEAL EVER – Spaghetti Pie
- Hamburgers. (Would be cheeseburgers but we hit our cheese item w/ the spaghetti pie of deliciousness.)
- And what we’re calling “Pantry” or “Cupboard” Soup. Basically making use of all the soups we have in our pantry closet that we haven’t touched. Like the Red Roasted Pepper soup from Trader Joe’s. Yummmm.
I wont be home on Wednesday night since I have an event in the city on Thursday, and Dave won’t be home Friday night, so we’re trying to keep it a little lighter than normal this week. What our excuse is for the rest of the weeks we’ve meal planned, I don’t know!
So, any good recipes from SuperBowl you care to share? What are you all cooking this week?
