There is a family football tradition each year hosted by Emily’s brother and sister-in-law, L1D1 where we all come to their house, eat their food, and enjoy the Super Bowl on their multiple big screen tvs. This year, however, L1D1 are expecting L2D2 (you really have to follow the link for an explanation),
so we all brought something different to share the burden. Our task was to bring 7 layer dip, though I don’t think we put in 7 layers. Anyhow, here are the layers we used:
7 layer dip
1 can refried beans with some taco seasoning to taste
1 pint sour cream
1 pint salsa
1/4 head of lettuce, shredded (just enough to satisfy your inner-rabbit)
1 or 2 tomatoes (to taste) cut into chunks
1 bag Mexican cheese (you know, the cheese blend)
Layer all that stuff in a pie pan in the order listed and refrigerate a bit to let it set up. Serve with chips and enjoy the awesomeness!
So, I really dig that and ate way too much (just ask the family). Anyhow, Emily’s Mom brought the cake shaped like a football stadium which Abigail and L1D1 decorated with icing. There was lots of other food as well including L1D1′s renowned football-shaped-calzones.
We had a good feed and I enjoyed the dips…all of them…especially the ones walking around! One of my favorite dips got pretty bored 7 minutes into the game and turned to reading his book. That’s typical Isaac. Emily’s grandparents were pretty funny to watch…they were a house divided…one cheered for Steelers and the other for the Cardinals. I kept bringing the Steelers fan cookies and cake. I think we need to honor the right decision! I really wanted to segregate the Cardinals fans in the broom closet but I didn’t think PETA would appreciate that too much.
