I think dinner will be a good old cheeseburger with the works, minus the bun , and a salad!

Snack will be a rye and diet ginger ale with a handful of pistachios.

Not really cooking or doing anything special for the super bowl per se, but I'll be making a roast leg of lamb (I figure we'll get about 6 meals out of that entire leg). The roast will be accompanied by a spinach salad with feta cheese and kalamata olives.

Probably no different here than any other Sunday. Neither of us is a football fan, so there's no point in watching the game. I have enjoyed some of the commercials in the past, but it doesn't make sense to watch something I don't enjoy to gamble on what might be a few entertaining commercials. Wish we had a device that would record the commercials ONLY but that's in another galaxy...for now.

As for our dining fare, we'll have grilled steaks, baked potatoes with whatever works either of us wants, steamed broccoli, iced tea and peach cobbler.

We'll most likely watch a film we've recorded on the dvr. Hope everyone else has a great time and their team of choice doesn't disappoint.

Fun fact I thought I'd share....one of the SB commercials was filmed here in my small desert town out in the middle of nowhere. I was going to Albertsons to do some Christmas food shopping about a week before Christmas, and planning to stop at Jack in the Box for a coffee and breakfast sammie, but it was closed. The parking lot was filled with trailers and there was all kinds of hoopla going on.

I talked to one of the production crew guys and he couldn't tell me much, just that they were filming a commercial for Super Bowl and were here mainly for the scenery. I asked if Jack was inside the restaurant and he told me no, that Mr. Box was out on location. The guy was hilarious, and very nice.

Film crews are out here a lot filming something or other, and I never get tired of seeing it, it's always fun.

Are marinated chokes good for stuff like artichoke dip?
Does it make more sense to buy the chokes that are not marinated?
I am asking so i can use them for more than a single dish or paired with other items.

Opposite of what you want.

Ooops, forgot to add, here's the spoiler commercial if anyone wants to see it before it airs. LOL

Costco marinated chokes are very mild. I made some great artichoke nibbles with them the other day. http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/artichoke-nibbles.
I've used them in dips, and prefer them to the unmarinated chokes. They're good right out of the jar too. And since it's Costco, you get a lot!

It is another "recipe development day." I'm playing with a twist on the flavors in my Sailor Stew recipe and another beef recipe playing with the flavors in Bulgogi. We shall see what happens.

Be careful what you wish for!
