Super Bowl Snack Recipe

Snow again? Argh! This "hump day" holds the potential for more snow. Guess the ole' groundhog was right... in predicting 6 more weeks of winter!

Our family has been without T.V. for 6 days - now we know why... (see pic) Our local translator tower is out of commission -due to the ice storm; and rumor has it - it will be a LONG time before we will have a new one - if ever! So! Has God intervened for us in getting "cable" T.V. (j/k) - LOL! This issue has been a HUGE dilemma for our family - we've been without cable for almost 6 years... but I think that is going to change. My boys are so excited... We're trying to think of "boundaries" that will help for our family TV viewing - do you have any that you're willing to share...? Let me know - PLEASE!

In our school lounge today, someone left a can of "Asian Wasabi Cashews"... OMG - let me retype this, so you get the point... OMG! Whooooooooaaaaaa - think you can take the zing-pow-bing of one of these nuts? WOW! Most teachers tried ONE... some were wimps and spit it out quickly, others -true troopers- just kept chewing; then others popped them like candy (Ms. R - ur the wo-man!) - it was a great experience! It was the topic of the morning! (Yes! At C.H.S. - we strive for excitement "every day"! LOL)

This week's recipe is in honor of "Super Bowl" this Sunday! It's a recipe for a wonderful snack food of roasted potatoes with a homemade cheese sauce (Hey! potatoes + cheese= "wonderful" - anytime!)

Super Bowl Potato Wedges w/ Cheddar Sauce
3 large baking potatoes, each cut into 8 wedges
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tsp "Greek Seasoning"
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 tablespoons ground black pepper
Cheddar Sauce:
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups milk
1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese; shredded
2 tablespoons green onions; chopped
1 tablespoon bacon bits
1/4 tablespoons cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a resealable plastic bag, toss potatoes with oil, salt, seasoning and pepper. Spread evenly onto baking pan and cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes, remove cover and turn potatoes. Bake for 10 additional minutes or until lightly browned. For the sauce, heat oil in medium saucepan. Add flour and stir over medium heat for 30 seconds making a rouge. Add milk and stir until thickened. Reduce heat to low; stir in cheese, green onions, bacon bits and pepper. Serve potato wedges with warm cheese sauce. (24 wedges)
So who is your pick for the Super Bowl this year? KV is a HUGE Peyton Manning fan... so we'll be cheering for the Colts! My favorite part of the event is usually the Super Bowl TV commercials and the half-time show! What's your highlight when watching the Super Bowl or do you even watch it?

Hope all is well at your house! Thanks for stopping by and take care! Hug the ones that you love the most! Have a great week!
