That's just how awesome the food was. We just woke up from the food coma today. for reals.
.......... or we've just been SUPER busy. Either way, hakuna matata. BLOG POST TIME! YAY!
|SO. MUCH. AWESOME.|
Clockwise from the red bowl with the handles we have tortilla chips and sloppy joe dip, buffalo chicken bites with blue cheese dressing, pepperoni and hawaiian deep dish chicago-style pizza, chicken quesadillas, (center) potato chips and Helluva Good Dip: Buffalo Chicken, and surf and turf bites. Yeah. We're that awesome. Guess how many people were at this party. Did you guess?
We were all very full. and very happy. :-D See?
And to stick with the "useful" theme of this blog, I'm gonna tell you how to make one of these delicious treats! YAY!
Sloppy Joe Dip
1 lb hamburger, browned and drained (reserve 1/4 cup of drippings)
1/4 c catsup
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c vinegar
2 T lemon juice
2 t soy sauce
1/2 c pineapple juice
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
salt and pepper to taste
2 T cornstarch
2 T cold water
Let burger cool and pulse in food processor for finer texture. Set aside.
Combine all remaining ingredients except cornstarch and water in a medium saucepan. Heat (with stirring) until sugar is dissolved. Mix cornstarch and water into a slurry and slowly add to hot sauce while whisking to avoid lumps. Continue stirring and heating while sauce thickens. Combine with hamburger in a small crockpot and set on low until ready to serve.
And that's it! Sorry I don't have any process shots of this one. As you might be able to guess, the kitchen was a wee bit busy that day!
