superbowl cupcakes with buttercream icing
I laughed to myself yesterday thinking that before long folks will be sending each other Merry Superbowl cards. There was such a holiday feeling at the market ~ everyone loading their carts with snacks, drinks, and talking about the parties they were going to. The best part, unlike in December, nobody was panicing and for the most part everyone was in a festive mood.
Since there were just a few guys coming over we didn't get too fancy - we went for all the cliche superbowl snacks... buffalowings/rigatoni&sausage/mozzsticks/fruitsalad/bruschetta/cheese/crackers/chips/salsa/queso/guacamole/veggies/onion dip/hummus/cupcakes/beer/beer/beer/beer
I only really have one recipe to share with you today - the experimental hummus I made. Instead of chickpeas, I used cannellini beans and roasted garlic. I'm not sure the guys liked it, but I thought it was pretty tasty.
