It's Football Play Off Time

Well it looks like we have been nominated to host this weekends foot ball play off game party!  In these parts most of us are Patriots fans.   I really could not care less about football but I do like to cook and entertain!  I have my list of the regular snacks I make or bring to other parties but I am really getting sick of the same old thing.  I did find a couple great looking recipes on ivillage

The picture alone makes me want to get out the potatoes right now!

This recipe looks quite time intensive but I think the work will pay off...who doesn't like a fried nugget of cheese!

I did try another easy idea for potato skins a while ago.  Instead of scraping out the middle of the potatoes, slice them.  Check out Tammy's idea over at Mommy Life With 5.  And the wings pictured look quite yummy too!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the football!!
