When I think of game day food, it’s all heavy big carnivorous sort of bites. From sticky wings to cheesy dips, it all screams meaty man food.  Deli counter dried up veggie sticks were just the transportation device for more or used in lieu of a proper knife to slather more sauce on the next impeding bite. And if your house is anything like ours on the big day, it’s like ever man and crock pot for himself. Too much food for all the people, and an over indulgence to put the Thanksgiving day feast to shame!

That was until I realized that if you put it out there, it will get eaten. So, I mixed in a few vegetarian friendly dishes that didn’t seem as heavy as my normal sausage queso dip and smiled when I watched them vanish. Sure the wings go first, but this fun simple dip gets nibbled on all day long.
