On Saturday night the Nebraska Cornhuskers played the Missouri Tigers. I don’t know if I’ve exactly spelled this out on the blog before, but I grew up in Nebraska and currently live in Missouri. Therefore, Saturday night’s game was a good excuse to host a party! Unfortunately, Mizzou showed up in Lincoln and basically beat the crap out of the Huskers. But we have a new coach, so technically, this is a rebuilding year for Nebraska;)
Anyways, our friends came over and we had quite a spread of food. I didn’t get a pic of the whole thing, but it was your typical football food fare- chips, dip, salsa, mini-cheeseburgers, etc. I made a couple things, including turkey and veggie roll-ups and the best red pepper hummus ever:
Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
1 roasted red pepper
1 can of garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1.5 T tahini
3 T lemon juice (juice of one lemon)
.5 t ground cumi
.5 t ground cayenne
Put all ingredients in food processor and process until desired consistency. I added a drizzle of olive oil and then processed again because it wasn’t quite smooth enough.
Most importantly, I made red velvet cupcakes! The Huskers are also known as the Big Red, so these were appropriate.
YUM! Definitely worth the splurge and the bottle of red food coloring 🙂
