Super Bowl Snacks

Surprisingly enough, I will not be hosting the Super Bowl party.  Which is absolutely fine since we (Blake and I) hosted the holiday party and the New Years party.  But, because I am not hosting, I am also not preparing too much food.  I plan on brining some guacamole (homemade), chips, and salsa and slow cooker BBQ sticky drumsticks!

So, because I am going to make the drumsticks tomorrow, I unfortunately don’t have pictures of them just yet!  I’ll have to add them tomorrow.  However, I am posting the recipe below so you can feel free to try them along with me! DSC_0092

I did make some quac. for lunch today, so here are some yummy pictures of that delicious green goop. quac1

Quacamole Recipe (for 2; double, tripple, or taste for larger quantity)

  • 1 ripe Hass avocado
  • ~1/4c onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • lemon juice, just a squeeze or two
  • salt, a pinch to taste
  • black pepper, a pinch to taste

In a bowl, soften avocado with a fork creating a smooth consistency.  Chop onions, mince garlic, and fold into avocado mash.  Squeeze lemon juice, add salt and pepper to taste, fold over with a fork to blend flavors together.  ENJOY quac3

I like my quac. simple and a little chunky (minimal small pieces of avocado).  I usually don’t add any additional spices or tomatoes.  Just keepin’ it simple and delicious!
