Party Appetizers and Finger Foods

Appetizers and party food
Stuffed jalapeño, meatloaf slider, 9 layer dip, potato skin, baked fried pie, chocolate strawberries
We Americans do love our football.  I’m more about the commercials and food than the game, especially when it’s not a very exciting game like the XLVIII Super Bowl game.  What I thought was a party for two happily became a party for three when big girl grand came by on her way home from work.  Here are some of the recipes for the appetizer/finger food Sunday night we shared.
