Superbowl Line of Scrimmage Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Jing Jing’s PowerPoint presentation-

Reasons I am looking forward to the 2012 Superbowl:

  • Kelly Clarkson singing the national anthem and the  F-18  fighter jet flyby (my tax dollars hard at work)
  • Madonna.  Looking fwd to it because I don’t like stabbing myself repeatedly with a fork during halftime.
  • The Puppy Bowl
  • Commercials. Hoping to see a new and improved imported from the dirty and another Darth Vader’s “the force”!
  • And finally,  I’m very excited to share my “Superbowl Line of Scrimmage Chicken Lettuce Wraps”  Try saying that about ten times super fast!

I just went shopping at Sams club and the “Sample Sarah” in me got suckered into buying 9 boxes of pre-made meals, hors d’oeurves and appe-teezers during their Superbowl Sunday sample feast .  They got me, damn sample stands.  ANY-VAY, just call me sample Sarah!  So this years spread is proudly sponsored by Sams.  And it ain’t even like I’m hosting a huge party either.   It will be me and the fam.  Just the way I like.  We’ll be making a comfy spread on the living room floor along with lettuce wraps and app-eteezers!  I’ve been experimenting with wraps and after the second try, they’ve got it going on.  It goes great on a buffet table and they go quick in my family!  If you happen to be stopping by my blog and you know how to make these even better LMK on my comment box! I’d love it!
