Super Bowl Cocktails

Well- I suppose I can drink tonight and so I will be grateful for the small things. Plus, we're having a smashing menu:

Slow Cooked BBQ Ribs- house made sauce, of course
Crispy wings with a house made Jamaican Jerk sauce
Mexican Pork Green Chili, made with tomatillos and lots of garlic!
Smashed Avocado Dip with chips and sliced veggies

Forgot to invite any guests. That's ok- I'm not much of a host these days. Still, I think I'll surprise my husband and dress up for him.

It's day 7 in a cancelled cycle. I have nothing to do but relax, and try to just be me. Still, I feel like I should be DOING something.

That sounds fabulous! I will be imbibing and stuffing my face this evening at my in-laws and then bringing some goodies over to M. for his break at work.

You are so right (re your comment on my blog). 100% right. I hope that that's a lesson that I at least carry for a while. I am guilty of the same crime. And I think what is really the most important is that people TRY, and that's something you don't want to discourage, even if the words are slightly wrong.

You ARE rooting for the Steelers, right? ;-)

I just read your comment on Cara's blog and I'm sorry the cycle didn't work out for you. I wish you peace and I hope you can enjoy your day and fabulous food. Sounds yummy!

Sounds like fun! We are having a similar "party" with just myself and DH. On eht menu...costco ribs, wings, chips, with salsa, chesse dip and homemade guacamole! I was going to make the wings, but at the last moment, DH suggested we just buy them...less work for me! Hope you guys have a fun party!

Yep. You absolutely should be doing something.

Having a few beers, and stuffing your face with ribs. Everyone deserves a break, even if it isn't what we would have wished.

Sounds like a great menu. Who needs guests anyway, more food for you and hubby.

Take care. Thinking of you.

Yum!! I had Jamaican jerk for the first time on Saturday and they were delicious.

I've been thinking about you.

Mmmm avocado dip sounds great! We didn't have any at the party we went to...may have to go to the grocery store.
And, you are doing something...you're taking care of yourself. (((HUGS)))

So, was it tasty? Still thinking of you every day. Maybe I'll take a drive someday just because. (I'll call first...promise)
