Who watched the Super Bowl? I don’t know that you could call what I did “watching.” If I am being honest, what I did was catch up on some of my favorite blogs, browse Pinterest, and play on Facebook and Twitter, while pausing for a few funny commercials and the fabulous Madonna halftime show. I just really wasn’t interested because I don’t have any ties to either team. A few years ago, the Carolina Panthers were in the Super Bowl and that was pretty exciting. But the husband watched the game.
Even though I am not really that into football, I do like tailgate food. ;)
On Sunday, the husband and I took a little trip to Trader Joe’s and we stocked up on some goodies. While we were there, we sampled a super-easy but tasty dip with only 3 ingredients. I thought it would make great football food. This dip would also be great for parties! It comes together in a snap with only about 2 minutes of micro-cooking!
Start with these 3 ingredients: soy chorizo, a container of whipped cream cheese, and a can of diced, fire-roasted tomatoes.
Mix the three ingredients together. I only used half the sausage and half the tomatoes, because I thought I might be able to use them again in another recipe. Mix well and microwave for about 2 minutes, or until warmed through. Give it a final stir to be sure it is evenly warmed, and serve with chips!
Ta-da! Great dip in minutes! I also would like to point out that Ryan did not have any idea that the chorizo was SOY chorizo OR that there were tomatoes in the dip. :)
On a different note, I went for my first real visit to the chiropractor today! You may remember that I went for scans and x-rays 2 weeks ago, and today was my first real visit. I had my first adjustment, which was no big deal (I was kinda nervous about that part) and then I started some of the treatments for my back and neck. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t have severe pain and I am not unable to do anything, but I get a lot of headaches and I do feel pain in my lower back at night. I will continue to let you know how my treatment goes! I had a treatment today which actually felt really good. I am looking forward to going back!
Now… I’ve got to get back to The Bachelor. I just can’t help it. I love this show. Very dramatic.
