There are those of us that really don't care who plays, wins or loses the Super Bowl. It does provided yet one more reason to get together with friends and snack...
It is estimated that more than 50 million pounds of guacamole are consumed on Super Bowl Sunday. Given that avocados, limes and lemons are easily found in the super markets these days there's no excuse not to make your own lovely dip to serve with chips.
And, speaking of chips. Boy or boy, if you ever fought over the crusty cheese at the bottom of an omelet pan, the recipe for Cheese Chips will change your life. It couldn't be easier to make your own crusty and tangy chips to enjoy with that bowl of chili and all its toppings.
You will need some bread to go with that chili or taco salad. Even if you have limited time to prepare, Jalapeno Soda Bread will make you a star in about 30 minutes.
And, then there's my new love -- Blistered Olives. Whoa, green olives on steroids. Smoky, garlic and chili pepper infused olives are so simple to make. You can prepare them a day ahead and let them steep in the fridge for even more intense flavor. If you have no will power, you may need to eat them immediately.

Writing, or maybe talking, comes naturally to me and under the guidance of a great newspaper editor I have acquired skills that led me to author four books. I now return to my two loves market gardening and weaving.
