Omg. The Superbowl is almost here. One of the biggest days of the year is just around the corner. And you know what I’ll be doing during the game? Most likely blogging. Maybe watching a little Jersey Shore. And hopefully consuming delicious food from my Sunday Funday cooking extravaganza. No, I will not be watching the Super Bowl. No, I will not be cooking Super Bowl food to bring to someone’s house to watch the big game. And no, I will not be rooting for any team. Because it’s dumb. And boring. Watching sports is like watching paint dry. It’s pointless. Ok, now that I pissed all of you sports fans off, I’ll apologize and change the subject. And do not comment that CrossFit is a sport. I consider it my workout. And the guys I watch workout are all half naked while working out, count me in as a participant in that “sport”.

I just drank a “dirty chai” and my stomach might explode from this sugar bomb. Abort. Never doin’ that sh*t again.

But back to the super bowl. People really only like special days like this because of the food that is involved. That’s why you just googled ‘super bowl food’ or ‘paleo super bowl food’ and you mouth started salivating. Pavlov style. Well since I’ve never really been to a Super Bowl party, I had to think of things I would want to snack on. But that’s too simple to me. All I really want to snack on is nuts (insert dumb jokes here. original.) shredded meat, and anything involving sweet potatoes. So I had to think a little bit more to satisfy all of you sports snacking freaks out there. That wasn’t an insult. If you like snacking, I like you. Sports or not.

I used this dip for everything. Sweet potato chips. Shredded chicken. Ham, rolled up in lil fruit roll ups-minus the fruit. Celery. Really anything, honestly. It’s pretty stupid delicious. And simple. I also ate it by the spoonful. Stop judging me.
