Are You Ready For Some Football?

CycleGuy’s home for the Christmas weekend. This has been a very busy week for him at work.  Actually, busy doesn’t even explain! As many of you know, CycleGuy works in San Francisco for a beverage company. This week they signed a major NFL quarterback to be one of their spokespeople.

What was going to be a relaxing weekend turned into a quick turnaround, but it’s all going to be fun. As part of this huge deal going on with CycleGuy’s company they’ll be running ads during the BCS games. So this weekend turned into an impromptu gameday party. CycleGuy needed to invite a few people over to watch games — all in the name of work!

I couldn’t have people over and not have something for them to nosh on. But with big dinners in the plans, the traditional big gameday snacks were going to be too much. Also, I would be preparing food to take to Mama-San’s and I didn’t want to make a huge effort for an impromptu football-watching party.

I was going to Michaels to get some things to decorate cookies, so I’ll stop at Walmart next door and grab a pizza and some salad or fruit or veggies and dip.  I’ll see what catches my eye.

Oooh, something different in the pizza aisle! I love those rising crust pizzas. I discovered them a few years ago and renewed my love of pizza.  I like non-traditional pizzas — BBQ Chicken, Artichoke & Spinach. Unfortunately, frozen pizzas are usually the traditional pepperoni, sausage, supreme varieties. But this?  Buffalo Chicken? Now that sounds like something I could dig. And it would save me a zillion hours of making wings!

Everyone loved the pizza! I whipped up a ranch dressing dip to help cool down the spiciness. It was just the right amount of spicy and the coolness of the ranch was perfect. I happened to have everything in the house to make the ranch dip, but it would be great if they included a packet or two with the pizza.

I really wish there were more ‘non-traditional’ flavors of these rising crust pizzas. I really like them and they’re more economical than delivery. But, I think a lot of people would like the non-red-sauce kinds of pizza.

I did a Whrrl story about my little party, check it out. But beware, you’ll wish you had smell-a-webz!
