Yes, it's American football. Our biggest sports night, as far as football fans are concerned
Chicago Bears vs Indianapolis Colts in Superbowl XLI
Can't wait!! Sorry, but, I have to go for the Colts and Peyton Manning. I haven't yelled for the Bears since William "The Frig" Perry left!!

Okay, I grew up in Indiana. I still can't keep these things straight. Can you say "lack of interest makes velochic a dull girl"?

Like I said the other thread... go Indy team.

Hot Wings
Franks red hot sauce
tobasco
black pepper
mix 1/2 cup franks, a few dashes of tobasco and black pepper.

Fry frozen wings to desired crispiness. Throw fried wings in mix bowl with sauces, shake and voila. Easy recipe, but really delicious.

I hadn't really thought about it until I looked at your list, but I think I'll make a pot of chili and some Velveeta/salsa dip.

I am going to a friend's house for the party. I am bringing chili and maybe cornbread. We also usually have: tortilla chips, salsa, pistachios, cheese ball, a couple of desserts, and whatever else other folks might bring. I might also bring a spinach dip (It's my favorite). Last year we had a big pot of gumbo.

philly, have you tried adding some melted butter and powdered cayenne pepper? the butter will give it a more saucey consistency and add flavor, and the cayenne will kick up the heat.

Not to worry velochic, it wasn't until this post that I could figure out what all the fuss about Indy was. I did not know Indianapolis had a professional football team, I am somewhat amazed. What part of Indiana do you know?

We'll probably have a homemade pizza, salsa chips, veggies and dip, maybe some wings. oh and beer!


I guess we are going to root for the Colts, even though my hubby used to live in Chicago. He isn't keen on the Bears.

Dissolve 2 packages yeast into 2 cups warm water
Add 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 beaten egg, 2 teaspoon salt
Mix well

Add 6-1/2 to 7 cups flour in stages until dough is no longer sticky. Place in greased bowl turning once to coat doughball. cover lightly with foil and place in refridgerator for at least 3 hours (if left overnight punch down once before bed!)

This recipe is easy and makes 3 jellyroll pan sized pizza. It is easily frozen both as ready made pizzas with sauce and cheese or in individual balls that can be thawed and rolled out later.

My family likes to add whole oregano and sometimes a bit of garlic powder to the recipe before adding the flour. This gives the dough a great flavor!
thanks jabbur. i was going to buy dough from a local pizza place. i've also seen it for sale in local supermarkets. but if i get the time, i'm going to try your recipe.

Bucky, if you can, mix it up the night before and let it rise overnight in the fridge.

It'll make it that much better. We used to make all our own dough at the pizza place I worked, and we loaded the walk in cooler with dough every night (for use the next day).

Hmmm... Maybe we'll make some pizzas for the game.
