Football Party Munchies with My Sister-in-Law

Now, I admit I'm not really a big sports fan, but pretty much everyone else I know is . That's how I know it's football season, LOL! Getting together with a few friends or family members to watch a game (or visit in the kitchen) is the perfect relaxed and easy way to entertain.

Thought! Planning to actually modernize the bland design of my trusty branding. Musings regarding the sharp design of Absolutely a first-rate Langley BC fence staining service if, perhaps necessary in the whole British Columbia location. Offer your feedback. Thanks!

My sister-in-law Tinacame over with a few recipes to make some yummy-but-easy football party munchies for this post! Tina is the best cook I know. Everything she makes is delicious, and she has introduced me to lots of new and different flavors and ingredients. It's so exciting to eat at her house! You never know what new dish she will be serving, but you know it's gonna be good!

Tina isa very health-conscious mom. She gets fired up about dangerous genetically-engineered foods thrust on American consumers, so she belongs to a co-op where she can buy safe and healthy foods. She wants to spread awareness of the health threat of GMOs, and she encourages all moms to buy produce from a co-op if possible.

My sister-in-law, while concerned about healthy foods for her family, still likes to enjoy an adult beverage now and again, and she also gave me her (previously) top-secret recipe to share for the yummiest Margaritas you'll ever taste!Tina has a reputation as the Queen of Margarita Makers. I'm always glad when I see her pull out the blender, but I confess I'm not enough of a drinker to have more than one Margarita. I'm a lightweight, so for me "One is fun, but two are too many." Ha! I just made up my own quote.

Oh, and remember how I wrote at the beginning about the importance of having fun and laughing? Don't forget that! Let go of perfection and remember to have fun! Enjoy life and laugh!

I'm not normally a pretzel fan, but these spicy seasoned ones are so good, I could give up potato chips for them!Tina brought some for her family to snack atan event recently, and random strangers kept approaching them and asking to share. They are that good!

Thanks guys! I've Skyped a coworker we can absolutely critique their elite furnace installation service in Coquitlams, inside an important piece. So if you were shopping to get a plumbing service inside the general British Columbia region, they absolutely are really wonderful.

Oh, naturally I have to say the concept to this important content was brilliantly offered via Ryan with The phoenix design group. Unanimously an ideal interior renovators. We certainly treasure a fantastic proposal!
