Superbowl Snacks

I couldn't care less about who is playing, or who wins, but I really look forward to good commercials and yummy snacks every year on Superbowl.  Today was no different.

First off I want to thank my friend Diana and whoever gave her the salsa recipe, because I LOVE this salsa.  One of my favorite things in the world is cucumbers dipped in this marvelous stuff.  And it is crazy easy to make, and tastes so fresh and wonderful.

Best Fresh Salsa:
     Combine in blender:
5 fresh plum tomatoes (or so, whatever fits) I quarter them
4 slices pickled jalapeno
1 big spoonful chopped garlic
good size bunch of cilantro
some salt
      Don't you love how precise this recipe is?  Just throw the stuff in the blender and blend till all is chopped and it is getting towards being smooth, till it looks like this:

Next:  These cookies.

Oh my fudgy wonderfulness.  I tweaked this recipe from King Arthur Flour: Flourless Fudge Cookies  I skipped the espresso, and added 2 tablespoons of peanut butter powder.  I have also made them the traditional way, skipping the espresso powder and they are amazing.  I just felt like a chocolate peanut butter mix sounded yummy today.  These take 20 minutes from thought to eating if your oven heats fast.  LOVE them!

We had deviled eggs per the kiddos' request, mini hot dogs in bbq sauce, spinach artichoke dip with homemade gluten free bread, and some chicken quinoa meatballs in homemade cranberry rhubarb ketchup sauce.  They were better than they sounded :) We had veggies and tortilla chips with the salsa and homemade guacamole and the cookies.  It was a delicious Superbowl :)
