Long time readers know that we sometimes have apps for supper– especially if there’s something on the telly that would interfere with our making a real supper. Such was the case last Sunday, Super Bowl L Sunday.
Mr Big Food schedules things such that the appetizers come out in waves, the first wave typically being cheese crackers and dips.
For your reference next time you want to do apps for supper, here is the entire menu from beginning to end:
Cheese & crackers
Fresh cut up veggies
Variety of sour cream dip (we had deviled ham variety and substituted yogurt for sour cream)
Cheesy beer salsa dip
Cranberry sauced sausage
Asparagus spears (marinated) rolled in ham
Here we go!
“Transform sour cream into an easy dip with a few simple flavor additions. Use 1 cup of dairy sour cream or plain yogurt mixed with 2 tablespoons milk.” —Pillsbury’s Food for Friends (1978)
