An Anniversary + A Giveaway {CLOSED}

by Courtney on December 5, 2012

Hey hey! How’s everyone’s Wednesday going so far?

Want to know something cool? Today is actually a pretty special day for me and Jay, since it’s our dating anniversary. It was on this day, December 5th, 13 years ago, that Jay and I officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. Yep…thirteen whole years ago. Almost half of my life.

IMG_0700

That photo right there was taken about a week after we starting dating…ohhh, gotta love the awkward high school year photos!

And I believe this photo was taken right before we started dating, but I honestly don’t remember. I also have no idea what was happening out in the car, but that makes me laugh.

IMG_0702

When both of us were into dying our hair blonde. Winking smile

IMG_0704

I just love how we have so much history, and I would not give it up for anything. I just love my guy. xoxo

*****

Okay, okay, enough mushy talk. Winking smile

Let’s get to some food for today. Yesterday’s cereal combo was so good that I had to have it again today.

The only bummer is that I’m now out of blueberries. Boooo.

Mid-morning I was out running a couple of errands and got struck with hunger. Thankfully, I replenished the purse snacks and had a Clif Z Bar.

(old photo)

A few hours later I put together some lunch. I had actually been craving a peanut butter and banana sandwich all morning long, but when it came down to it, I suddenly wanted cheese…of the grilled variety.

IMG_9041

So I made another grilled cheese with turkey bacon, tomato, and spinach. I actually burned the crap out of the bottom of that sandwich, but it still turned out tasty as ever.

IMG_9043

I’m now fresh out of provolone and spinach, so it looks like another trip to the store will have to happen pretty soon.

Healthy Cookbook Giveaway

Kim from The Family Practice Blog recently reached out to me to share her new cookbook, “Know Your Line Up.”

There’s everything from guacamole, dips, skewers, cookies, and even homemade sauces.

IMG_0695IMG_0696

Kim is generously offering to give away (2) copies of her cookbook to two lucky STSL readers! To enter, just leave a comment on this post telling me some of your favorite “game day” or party recipes. (open to US residents only)

Heat up some velveeta with a can of chili (or homemade) and you have instant chip dip! Yeah, yummy! (BUT not so healthy)

Happy Anniversary! We still celebrateoru dating anniverasry as well (I do at least, my husband is like we’re married :))

This one is a crowd pleaser and so easy. I don’t share it often but I guess we are going viral…

“Mini Pizzas”

Get a loaf of French bread and slice into ~1/2 inch thick slice so you aheva bunch of little rounds

Place a slice of brie on each and a slice of pepperoni on top of that

Spray a cooking sheet with cooking spray arrange the “pizzas”

Bake at 325 degrees until the cheese starts to slightly bubble, pepperonis toast slightly on edges
= Approx 10 minutes

You want to serve warm/hot but can do the prep work before and easily pop in a batch here and there while entertaining

Being from the south, I grew up making party dishes with lots of mayo sour cream in them. I really enjoy the corn salsa recipe, which has mayo, sour cream, green onion, mexi-corn, and some other random ingrediants I cannot remember. I absolutely love it, but it is not something I make unless it really is a big game. =)

Game day favorite food – mini sliders made with cold cut shaved meats, small turkey or beef burger patties, even BLT’s with cheese make great sliders. For a time saver I use dinner rolls from my local bakery. Quick, easy & delicious!

My go to tailgating dish takes one of my favorite southern treats (deviled eggs) and turns it into a dip. I hard boil the eggs, set them aside and mix up mustard, mayo, sweet pickle relish, salt pepper and depending on the crowd, hot sauce and/or bacon. Then I peel and cut up the eggs and mash the mix together, just like you would with just the yolks in regular deviled eggs. Then of course sprinkle paprika on top! Can even put in center piece of deviled egg tray with the veggies and crackers surrounding

My favorite game day snack is Texas Caviar! So delicious! Filled with corn, black eyed peas, bell peppers, onion, celery, and pinto beans it is to die for! Everyone loves it! The dressing is apple cider vinegar, some sugar, salt and pepper! Simple, yet divine! Best (I think- although hard core chip lovers might disagree) served with sliced celery sticks! :) But tortilla chips also a great with it too! :)

OOOOO!!! i love all gameday foods; nachos, wings, mini corn dogs, you name it! by far my favorite is a good dip though, and Crack Dip is the BEST!!! Take a can of refried beans and layer it in the bottom of a caserole dish. Mis softened cream cheese with salsa and layer that on top. Then top that layer with shredded cheese and jalepenos and bake/broil till the cheese melts and everything is warm. It’s best served with those scoop corn chips….MMMMM so yummy!!
