Crying into their Terrible Towels...

OK...so we weren't crying...don't even like Pittsburgh here in Clevetown...but The Super Bowl is a good reason to party with fun little appetizer type foods.  And it turned out to be a good game.  And it's a lot less stressful when you really don't care who wins.

But this post isn't really about football at all.  This post is about the yummy little morsels pictured above.  I took a pic immediately out of the oven because soon there would be little evidence these even existed.

EVIDENCE:  Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Thingies, courtesy of the recipe from The Pioneer Woman Cooks.

So my fingers burned for the entire game because while jalapeños usually don't bother me, there were some powerfully hot & stubborn veins in these.  It was worth the pain, however...as the end result was soooooooooooooo good. 

I suffer for my art & my food!

The game is over...The Green Bay Packers won...and all of these little yummies are now just a fond memory.  We also had some great chicken wings with Panda Express Orange Chicken sauce glazing them...thank you for the sauce, Kimber!  Oh and beer...gotta have BEER!  But the little bacon wrapped cream cheezy bits of peppery goodness were definitely the star of the show.  The good news is that there are jalapeños, bacon & cream cheese left in the fridge...as well as some uncooked wings...so we can have another evening of grazing soon. 

My sympathies to my on-line friends Bev & Joy...Steeler fans for sure.  Y'all will get over it...and it could be worse...your hometown team could be the Cleveland Clowns...or Browns...nope...definitely Clowns!

  1. LOL......Being born in Wisconsin I was SO happy to see the Packers kick the butts of those Steelers that took out my Cardinals win a couple of years ago....those goodies look great, but too hot for me! The wings with the Panda Expess sauce tho....YUM! We made con queso the easy way, and had steaks for dinner....it was a good game....Yeah Aaron Rodgers! No more talk about the hick from Georgia (?) What was his name anyhow???? :):)
