I know that a lot of you like hot wings. Just received this recipe for Atomic Chicken just in time for the Super Bowl:

More food for thought and for the Super Bowl:

Spicy Buffalo Chicken Dip
  • 2 store-bought rotisserie chickens, skinned and finely shredded
  • 3 8-oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 C. ranch dressing
  • 3/4 C. blue cheese dressing
  • 1 C. Buffalo wing sauce
  • 3 C. Colby Monterey Jack cheese, shredded
  • Tortilla chips (optional, for serving)
  • Crackers (optional, for serving)
  • Carrots (optional, for serving)
  • Celery (optional, for serving)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Beat the cream cheese, ranch dressing, blue cheese dressing, and hot sauce until creamy and fully combined. Fold in the shredded chicken and 1-1/2 cups of the shredded cheese. Spread the mixture into the 3.5-qt dish and bake for 25 minutes. Remove the dip from the oven and sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. Bake for another 20 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Allow the dip to cool for 10 minutes, and then serve it with tortilla chips, crackers, carrots, celery, or a combination thereof.

Good afternoon everyone!

The calendar has been flipped. We are now officially in February. I'm assuming the shortest month of the year will fly by just like January. Not much is happening here. The cold weather has returned and we will likely be about -26c/-15f here tonight. And it appears as if I will be working at the rink, too. Perfect timing.

It will be the first time the rink has been open since the recent warm spell. We'll see how it goes. I also might try skating a little bit tonight. Not hard. My knee can't handle all that yet... But it will be nice to coast around the ice and shoot some pucks.

It is Superbowl weekend, but I don't really have many plans as of yet... for the Superbowl or even tonight and tomorrow, really. Oh well! I'm sure plenty of things will come up.

I hope everyone has been having a wonderful Friday. There is only a bit of time until many of us are home for the weekend. Enjoy!

...I was going to say, thank you for clarification, Seawaters. It is never called a tobaggan in Canada. I had wondered where that reference came from. Tobbaggan is really only a universal term that is used for sliding down a hill on a GT, crazy carpet or something of that kind.

Yay! First calendar flip of the year! Here at the office we are now officially into hearts and cupids season, along with purple lights and garlands for the Ravens. It's a rather interesting combination.

I flipped my calendar too and saw that the only things I have marked are things I really don't need: We had put down the February school break and teacher collaboration days! Have fun at the rink, eh?

I posted a Super Bowl recipe because for the life of me I cannot remember where to do it otherwise. I went to the recipe section but it is only for Christmas recipes and I only saw recipes, not how to post them.
