Loaded-Los-Angeles-Nachos

I’m pulling out my Loaded Los Angeles Nachos for the return of Dodger baseball . Gotta admit that the arrival of my favorite sport is well timed and will bring us some sense of normality. I don’t mind that the stadium will be empty of an audience. In fact I’m happy about it and love the cardboard cutout people they have in attendance instead. Baseball will give us something to look forward to each night and have an overall excitement surrounding it. America’s favorite past time will help us pass the time to the other side of the Coronavirus-era.

I miss those experiences and am really craving some Summer fun.

Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip And Football Pretzels

Football shaped pretzels served with a delicious Mexican Beer Oaxaca Cheese Dip!

Like most people, the first thing I think about when hosting or being invited to a game day party is the food. To be honest, I don’t even know the rules of football or who plays on what team. I don’t care about half time, especially this year, and only a portion of the multi million famed commercials grab my attention. All I care about are the snacks.

Manchego Quince On A Stick:

Oh my GAWD!!!! I think I just died and went to cheese heaven. For the first time in my life I had Manchego Quince on a stick. It’s the first time because I’ve never seen them anywhere else in my time on earth. I was sitting home getting ready for the football game and wanted a batch of mozzarella sticks, but then thought it boring. “The same ol cheese sticks again?” is exactly what ran through my mind. Instead I jumped into action and paired my beloved manchego cheese with quince fruit paste, a flavor combination typically intertwined in Spain. Quince fruit paste goes by the Spanish name Membrillo, and is becoming very easy to find in bigger supermarkets and Mexican boutique markets. Once I settled on the flavor, I breaded the manchego quince stacks and fried them to a golden crisp. (more…)

My cousin Justine and her roommate are insane soccer lovers.  Their favorite team is Mexico, actually during the current soccer matches they have several teams they will be rooting for as it is a process of elimination.  My cousin is interested in celebrating her favorite sport this year by having a soccer viewing party.  There’s only one problem, she’s never had people over to entertain before.  She’s a bit nervous about it but I told her I’d help her with her big soccer entertaining debut. Cost Plus World Market is this Summer of Soccer shopper’s one-stop shop and they would cover all her entertainment needs with foods from around the globe, dish-ware, and gorgeous decor. This gathering was sure to impress her friends and her roommate. (more…)
