Super Bowl Sundayyyyyy!

Superbowl Sunday.

GO PACK GO!!!!!

Still can’t believe they won 🙂  And what an exciting game it was!?!?

Let’s just say it is a very happy day in this household haha.  Phew 😉

We watched the game with a few friends over at The Man’s parent’s house.  Everyone brought some food for game-time muching, here were my contributions.

Frank’s hot sauce was the theme!

Ummm think I bought enough?  Hahaha ridiculous, thank you grocery store for only having the “Honey I Blew Up the Kid” version left on this very Sunday 😛

Am I dating myself here?

After seeing these beauties on Andrea’s site just a few days ago, I knew I couldn’t resist much longer.  And how perfect are they to bring to a football party?!

A super flavorful yet healthy option – shhhh no one ever even knew 😉

After marinating 2 chicken breasts in Frank’s hot sauce, I pulled out Nanny’s old little slow cooker/warmer thing (not your conventional crockpot) and let these cook.

Seriously, you could have never set foot in a kitchen and this thing will produce 100% no fail results with chicken every. single. time.  Level 3 for 30 minutes and voila, moist and flavorful and ready for shredding.

After I shredded them up I added some more Frank’s and let the chicken stay in the warm slow cooker for another 30 minutes or so.

Then it was assembly time!

Nasoya egg roll wraps, cole slaw mix, shredded hot sauce chicken and bleu cheese crumbles.  How can you go wrong here?

Just like Andrea, I did a layer of cole slaw mix, a layer of shredded chicken topped off with a layer of crumbled bleu cheese.

Then attempted to fold them up according to her directions, making sure not to put too much filling in them so they didn’t explode! 🙂

A little dab of water sealed the deal and these were off into the oven.

Toasty.

Loved them.

To keep with the Frank’s hot sauce fiesta as well as use some of the 100,043 pierogi that we made during the holidays & stashed away in the freezer, I found this great idea online!

Simply mix together a bit of veg oil (1 tblsp) with some Frank’s hot sauce (1/2 cup), stir, then dip pierogi one by one to cover.

Layer on a baking sheet and cook for 20 minutes at 400F, flipping once or twice.

They puff up and get all crispy-like, glorious!

Both of these dishes should most definitely be served with bleu cheese dressing for dipping as well 😛

I must say that both of these dishes were a huge hit with me and the rest of the party too! 

The buffalo chicken rolls were perfectly crisp and the chicken filling with the warm, melted bleu cheese was so delicious paired with a cool, creamy dip into some bleu cheese dressing.

The pierogi really took on the spiciness of the hot sauce which was mouth-watering combined with the cheesy, onion mashed potato filling.

Drool worthy!

Now my sleep-deprived self (6:22am wakeup, really body, really? after a 12am bedtime? whyyyyy haha) must get on with life and head to work…

Hoping this day goes by fast so I can come home to a crockpot treat and some Bachelor drama 😛

Oh yea, and only 7 more days from today until the big secret reveal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I feel like a kid before Christmas.

Glowingly blue

Hey hey hey friends!!  Well we had quite the eventful day with that lil’ storm that made it’s way up the east coast 😛

The cars were buried!!

Towards the end of it the sun tried to peak outta the clouds & as night was falling there was this gorgeous blue “glow” all around (no tricks with the camera here, I promise, this was an auto flash setting!)

 

Purty-lic-ious 🙂

Well dinner tonight was a last minute decision since I could not seem to come up with a final plan until late in the day!  So I went with a comforting dish after a suggestion of sloppy joes from  Mr. Man.

After perusing a few sloppy joe recipes & taking into account that we had no ground meat, I came up with my own take on this classic:

Buffalo Chicken Sloppy Joes

  • 4 small chicken breasts (unpic)
  • 2 small onions
  • 3-4 stalk celery
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tblsp tomato paste
  • 3 tblsp red wine vinegar
  • 2 tblsp brown sugar
  • 1 tblsp worcestershire
  • 1/8 cup Frank’s hot sauce
  • EVOO
  • S&P

1. Boil chicken breasts in enough water to cover, about 15 minutes until cooked.  Remove from water & shred using 2 fork method.  Save boiling water.

2. Chop onions & celery, adding to 1 tblsp EVOO and sauteing until tender.  Mince garlic and add towards end, plus S&P.

3. Then lower temp to med-low and stir in tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, worcestershire, Frank’s hot sauce and 1 3/4 cups of reserved cooking water.

4. Let warm through before adding shredded chicken breast and some more S&P.

At this point just turn it down to warm and get the rest of dinner ready, flavors get better w/ time 🙂 (at a safe temp of course – food safety police this girl I tell ya!)

To go with our sloppy chicken joes I made some pepper jack potatoes using this cheesy lurve

 

Plus some sunshine yellow corn 🙂

Served them all up, sloppy joes on some whole wheat toast (no buns + snowy roads = make do with what ya got!)

I really enjoyed this random recipe and The Man did too!  Can’t wait for leftovers, this kinda stuff only gets even better with time 😛

Alright, I’m off to watch a movie (story of my life these snowy days?)  I hope that you friends have a wonderful night & see ya’ll tomorrow!
