The Ponytail Guy is catering our Super Bowl non-party. At least providing the food, even if I have to cook it myself.
As you're reading this, it's Super Bowl Sunday or later. Hick likes to watch the game, and have finger foods provided by ME just before kickoff. I've been mad at the NFL ever since the Rams left St. Louis, so I don't watch the games any more. I will sometimes watch the Super Bowl for commercials, and their satanic ritual halftime shows. Over the last few years, the commercials have gotten less entertaining and more preachy. The halftime shows have ramped up the Not-Heavenishness. IMCO. [in my conspiratorious opinion]
Anyhoo... I don't buy as many treats as when Genius was still living here. So nobody is in danger of a permanent scar on their forearm from the oven-element skin-sizzle when pulling out a tray of potato skins. The Pony will most likely not lay an eye on the broadcast. He must eat, though. This year, I am using FREE Ponytail Guy foods for our repast.
We'll have a main course of Italian sausages, split open and fried to a little char. That's how The Pony wants them. Then we'll have the finger foods like EGGROLLS (plenty of them to use up), and meatballs on toothpicks to dip into red sauce (I have four pouches of it, thanks to the Ponytail Guy). The Pony says he won't need fancy toothpick skewering, since he will use his hands. Then I'll use the crumble Italian sausage (made for pizza topping) in a cheese and salsa dip that Hick likes. I'm using the Velveeta off-brand from Save A Lot, since the Ponytail Guy's cheese is in block form, and I doubt it will melt like Velveeta. We'll also have Ruffles potato chips (Hick asked for them) and french onion dip (The Pony's request) that I bought from the store.
Don't waste your fingertip skin telling me that it's not healthy. This is the Super Bowl feast at Thevictorian mansion, by cracky! It's not a weight-loss spa. Though I do have some romaine lettuce because I think I'd like a side salad to counter some of the grease.
I have a feeling Hick will turn down the salad.
I love Ruffles and French Onion Dip!ReplyDelete
Oh my gosh! The dip was delicious! Probably because I had to PAY for it, which made me think it was better than the Ponytail Guy's FREE food. Although he's never given us dip. This was from a local distributor, not a national brand. Even The Pony commented on the deliciousness of the dip. Probably because it was something I didn't "make."Delete
I remember Ruffles chips, we had them here for a while. Probably still have them, but I never go down the chips aisles in supermarket so I can't be 100% certain.ReplyDelete
Did Hick's team win the Superbowl? Years ago my son used to watch it for the half-time entertainment, but not anymore.
I prefer my chips without ridges, but since the Ruffles were sitting there open, I had some with the dip. Good thing, since that thick dip needed a strong chip.Delete
Hick's team lost by a lot! He didn't care all that much. We were Rams fans when the franchise was in St. Louis. Never cared all that much about the KC Chiefs, but we won't root against a Missouri team.
Halftime was boring and odd. Not a lavish production like last year. Not even anything to complain about.
Probably because of all the covid they couldn't get together and work out something better then practise for it.Delete
Suuuure... Supposedly the guy paid $7 million of his own money to be the halftime performer. You'd think he could have found a way to make it better. What a waste of $7 million! It was the concept, not the execution, that was so disappointing.Delete
That was a perfect description of the half time show. And my Ruffles had ridges. I found a package of dry ranch dressing and put it in sour cream. My honey said, "You know I don't eat sour cream." I just looked at him. He took a bite and said, "But this dip is good. What is the white stuff?"ReplyDelete
After he scraped the bowl clean, I said, "Sour cream."
Yes, I make that for veggies, and we also use it for chips. It's been SO LONG since we had storebought french onion dip. I guess that's why we enjoyed it so much.Delete
I bet Bill enjoyed the sour cream more than the halftime show!
Nothing melts like my favorite cheese LIKE product, Velveeta!ReplyDelete
Mrs. C made tiny hot dogs in tiny buns and bbq chicken nuggets for my dinner. I watched the game while she watched a Say Yes to THe Dress marathon. I watched Mike Homes tear down crappy building jobs and make it right during commercials and half time devil worship.
That sounds good. I forgot we had 9 packs of Ponytail Guy FREE hot dogs. They're pretty small! I didn't think to make something with them.Delete
Hick was wishing for a halftime like the old Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake halftime. I'm sure you know what I mean. Or at least your 13-year-old self does.
I remember tiny hotdogs in tiny buns! I used to make them for the kids when they were too little to finish a regular sized hot dog, made mini burgers on mini bund=s too, then again later for the grandchildren.Delete
"buns" not bund=s, D'Oh!Delete
I missed that one, I blinked and everyone just said, "Did she just show boobage?" My 13 year old self is still upset about blinking.Delete
You're in luck! The Typo Police are taking a break, eating egg rolls, washing them down with a gallon of Sunny D (also FREE, and a Hick-killer with its sugar content).
I was in the kitchen, and heard Hick and Genius exclaiming "WHOA! Did you see THAT?" With much delight.
