Game Day Noshing: Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Dip

cheeseburger_dip_0246

A year ago 2.5 miles was the hardest thing in the world. Pedaling up the hills and over the terrain would leave me heaving for air and disgusting with sweat. It was gross and I hated it. Finding the motivation to pick up the bike and ride was tough, but I was far too stubborn to be left behind while Handsome was out having such a good time. I will never forget one of our first rides.

Yet, for the Super bowl, with all the hype, its easy and fun to get into it. It’s way more fun with other people. We’re having a few friends over and I am making some of the normal football foods – or at least that’s what the food network tells me.
