I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Dipping Into The Super Bowl

It won’t be long before Super Bowl Sunday becomes a national holiday. When you think of all the major events that take place in the course of a year it is still Super Bowl Sunday that draws the most television viewers. It truly is a phenomenon but for most people it is just good old fun. I come from a long line of football fanatics who have always handled the Super Bowl in the same manner as they would Christmas. I did not inherit that football gene; I can take it or leave it. I enjoy the party going on around the game better than I actually enjoy the game itself. I do however look forward to those new Super Bowl commercials, sometimes they are absolutely brilliant. The best thing about Super Bowl Sunday to me is it has become another perfectly acceptable day to indulge in mass quantities of food. So even though I rarely take a dip in the football pool, there is always something delicious for me to dip into!

Guacamole Salsa

4 perfectly ripe avocados
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup salsa (any kind)
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tbsp. chopped or grated onion
Garlic salt to taste
1 jalapeno pepper chopped finely
1/4 cup of cilantro, roughly chopped

Mash the avocados with the lemon juice, using a fork to make a rough texture. Leave a few lumps. Stir in the salsa, sour cream, onion, garlic salt, jalapeno pepper, and the cilantro.
Serve with your favorite chips, also make a delicious condiment for your favorite burgers or sandwiches.
