Superbowl Supper

Tonight after our evening church service, we are having a few friends over to watch the Superbowl. Well, actually, the men will be watching the Superbowl....the ladies will be in the kitchen, visiting and taking care of the food!

This is what I fixed for tonight:

Hot Chicken Wings

1 bag frozen chicken wings
1 stick butter
1 cup Frank's Hot Sauce

Bake the wings (I put mine in two glass baking dishes) for 45 minutes on 375 degrees--I put my oven on the convection setting, you may need to bake longer if you use the regular setting. I just put the wings in the dishes frozen.
Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the hot sauce, cooking on low until heated through. Pour the sauce mixture over the wings and cook the wings another 15-20 minutes (longer if you are using the regular oven). I prepared the wings today up until the second baking. I plan to convect (is that a word) for 15-20 minutes when we get home tonight. I doubled this recipe, and ended up with four 9 x 13 baking dishes of hot wings.

Hot Chicken Dip

2 cans chicken, drained
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/3 can tomato soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup Hellman's mayonnaise
12 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 tsp. garlic salt.

Mix all ingredients with a mixer. Put into a baking dish and heat at 350 degrees until bubbly. I cooked the dip this afternoon, and after it had cooled a little, I put it in the refrigerator. I plan to pop it in the microwave to reheat it when we get home. Serve this chicken dip with wheat thins.


2 lbs. ground beef
1 bag onion/pepper blend
3 cans pinto beans
3 cans petite diced tomatoes
1 pkg. chili seasoning

Brown meat and onions. Drain and mix with all other ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on low until ready to serve. I am serving the chili with Frito's, saltine crackers, sour cream, and grated cheddar cheese.

I am also cooking some frozen chicken fingers, which I will serve with ranch dressing, honey mustard, and BBQ sauce.

My friends are bringing a vegetable tray, another dip, and three or four desserts.



  1. Mmmmm....your hot chicken dip sounds DELICIOUS!!

  2. Yummy! We had chicken dip too. And crunchy Romaine salad, potato soup, and another dip that Ginny brought. YummY! Tons of leftovers!

  3. Roan,

    This all sounds delicious!! I'll have to give them all a try!!
    Do you want to see my MFW Exploring Countries and Cultures? If you like it, you're more than welcome to borrow it to use with Leah next year. I also have most, if not all, the books. Let me know. Logan is in Tupelo several times a week, and I'm there on Fridays. He comes to Hope Church for piano tomorrow. He can bring it then, if that works for you. I'll be happy to tell you about our experience with MFW. We loved it. I did tweak it a bit here and there to fit with our needs, but for the great majority of the time, I followed their exact schedule and suggestions. If we hadn't joined Excelsior, I am sure we'd still be using MFW. Kysha has used it for the past couple of years, too. She's a great one to ask with smaller children. All that being said, you may not like it at all. Everyone has different needs. I've shared it with some folks that loved it like we did. For some others, it just wasn't a good fit at all. So, please take a look at mine and see how you think it would be for y'all.

    Best wishes for a great day!!

  4. This all sounds so good Roan! I especially am looking forward to trying the chicken dip. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi Roan!! Sounds like a super bowl feast to me!! My hubby made a rub for a Boston Butt, injected it with apple juice, grilled it for a couple of hours and then finished it off in the oven! It was mouthwatering. We had green beans and oven baked potato wedges for sides...YUMMO!! It sure was a great game!!

    Love what you did with your storage!! We have been working on some of the same types of issues with our crafting stuff. Hubby just got some wire shelving to turn our barely used coat closet into our craft closet!! WOOHOO!!
    I bought some canvas bins on clearance at Wal Mart for stuff that can be piled, and all the rest is already in the lidded containers ready for the shelves! It's a great feeling isn't it?

    I am going to check into that writing curriculum too! Sounds great!
    Blessings sweet friend!
