Superbowl Chow-Down

Did anyone do anything fun for the superbowl?  We went over to a friend’s place to hang out with a group and I was told everyone was bringing food over.  It was sort of a BYOM (Bring Your Own Meat) event, but we didn’t feel like grilling, so I decided to make chili and cupcakes. 


I had never actually made chili before, but I found a simple recipe online here (click).  It uses lots of great, fresh ingrediants – ground beef and a couple veggies.  Look at all those onions!


The recipe definitely cashed out all my chili spice.  I think I’m going to have to get a bigger container next time I hit the grocery store.


Look at that.  Mmm…it turned out great!  Between the 7 of us, we downed the whole thing!  Who knew chili was so easy to make?  I think I’m going to have to cook this one again…and again…and again…lol


As for the cupcakes, I could have used my hand mixer, but why do that when you have such a pretty KitchenAid?  She’s still not named yet…heehee.  I need to think on that some more.


Thank you, Duncan Hines, for providing such easy-to-make cupcakes.  They were, as always, delicious.  You know, I think I always use box mix for cupcakes.  I don’t think I’ve ever made cupcakes from scratch…I should try that sometime, though…I bet they’d be pretty darn good, too!

  1. All I have to say is yum and adorable. Yum for the cupcakes and adorable for your KA mixer in of course robins egg blue:-) I love chili as well and your right it is easy to make.

  2. Since you're an animal lover too, I should mention that on Super Bowl Sunday, there was a show on the Animal Planet Channel for those people who are not football fans. (like me and the Mr.) It's called "The Puppy Bowl" and it's a bunch of puppies of all different breeds running around frolicking on a make-believe football field. There is even a "referee" to call fouls when one of the puppies has "too much contact" or "doesn't share his water dish". It's hilarious but it's also adorable. I fell in love with every puppy I saw!
