Ten on Tuesday

Ten favorite Super Bowl Snacks
Our son comes every Sunday to watch football with his Dad.  Our son also loves to cook and is pretty good in the kitchen.  He will make some girl very happy with his talent.  And this from a kid who was a very picky eater.  No matter where we went for dinner he would order grilled cheese.  He has come a long way.   So some of our favorites are:

1. Quesadillas
2. Nachos
3. Buffalo Wings
4. Scallops and Bacon
5. Chili
6. Lasagna
7. Lemony Shrimp Rounds (see recipe below)
8. Cheese and Crackers (I know I am part mouse.  No party or get together is complete with cheese.)
9. Apple Cranberry Chutney over cream cheese with crackers
10. 7 Layer dip

Now I know these aren't all snacks, but these are some of our menu items.  We tand to have a theme.  Last year it was Tex-Mex.  This year we will have more of an Italian theme.

Here is one of our favorite appetizers.

8 oz cream cheese softened
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
3-4 scallions finely minced--use white and a little of the green part
2-3 TBLS prepared horseradish
1/2--3/4 lb cooked shrimp coarsely chopped
2-3 grinds of pepper

Beat cream cheese and lemon juice until smooth and creamy.  Stir in the scallion and horseradish.  Fold in the shrimp and finally the pepper. 

Serve with melba toast.

Go Pats!  I think we should have added clam chowder this year!!!
