Plain and simple. It means appetizers and drinks. Easy as that. I may not be able to tell you who played last night (okay… I know the Saints played thanks to Ellen), and I may not know the final score, but I do know what I served to my sweetheart, father-in-law, friends, and kids.

All you do is unroll the dough. There are four main sections of dough in each container. Use a knife and cut an asterisk in each section. Then you simply roll a sausage into each tiny triangle until you use all the dough. Then you follow the directions on the Crescent Roll wrapper.
The Mustard Sauce was made by Matthew
Plain yellow mustard
hot Chow-Chow (to taste)
Roasted Red Bell Pepper Humus
In a Food Processor combine:
Two cloves of garlic
1/4 of a small red onion
1/2 a jalapeño (de-seeded, unless you like it spicy)
2 cans of drained chick peas
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
a little bit of cilantro (to taste)
A can or jar of drained roasted red bell peppers
salt and pepper.
Blend for a while and drizzle up to 1/4 cup of e.v.o.o. to smooth it out. Serve with pita chips or veggies.
4 ripe avocados
1 can (drained) chunky Ro-Tel
lime or lemon juice
garlic salt and pepper
1/2 cup feta cheese
Okay… so all I did was open a bag of frozen shrimp from Sams and thaw them out. But they were oh so gooooooood….
