HAPPY SUPER BOWL DAY!!!

I loooove this holiday. Yes, I said holiday. The Super Bowl is a food holiday. Didn’t you know? Yaha…it is. <— Said in my “Ross Gellar” voice.

Who are we rooting for? Who’s the favorite? Where are they playing? I’m clueless.

You know this already, but if the Bears aren’t playing, I don’t have a clue about what’s going on. Also? If the Cubs aren’t there, I pretty much don’t care.

Have I told you that I love stuffed foods? I LOVE! stuffed foods!! <— I’m screaming!

Ok. Compose yourself…

Ok. So. While this recipe isn’t anything groundbreaking (yes, it is), it’s still an appetizer that I can’t wait to attack later on today!  Do you even want to know how craaaazy delicious these stuffed mushrooms are?

Well. There’s mushrooms… and they are stuffed with bacon and cheese and chunky salsa. And they are baked until they get all gooey and cheesy on you.

Bacon is like key to all things simple and delicious. Cheese is key to all things creamy and gooey. Mushrooms is key to all things stuffed.

I’m telling ya… wow. I was so impressed with moi. Just sayin’.

    It’s really too bad that we had already established a winning football appetizer superstition (GO SEAHAWKS! OMG THEY ACTUALLY WON!) with spinach artichoke dip, sine stuffed things are, as has been noted, delicious.

    For anyone interested in stuffing things with other things, check out Romanian food. They do a lot of that sort of thing.
