Green Chile with Roasted Pork

It’s green chile time!

This past weekend it finally felt like fall.  Like, FINALLY.  There are times that I just love living in South Texas (like January when it’s 75 degrees out and everyone else is buried under some named snowstorm…Jonas anyone??).  But when September hits, and it’s still annoyingly hot, I’m all take me back to the northeast!  They are boasting perfect fall temps almost every day and I am still dripping in sweat if I try and take a walk in the afternoon.  So in October, when fall finally does make its appearance here, I fully embrace it.  This past weekend was it.  The temp had finally dropped overnight so when you wake up in the  morning it’s in the 60’s, and it warms up throughout the day.  Heaven, I tell you.  So, Saturday morning we put on pants and long sleeves and headed outside.  It was glorious.

There’s something about eating chips and dips while watching football.  It’s just total perfection.  This weekend I was seriously craving spinach artichoke dip.  But in an effort to lighten up one of these all-time favorites, I decided to try something new.  I wanted something that still tasted like traditional football watching munchies.  So I went semi-healthy.  I didn’t touch the holy grail that is spinach artichoke dip.  I’m sorry, I just firmly believe that it needs every bit of mayo, cheese and sour cream that the recipe calls for.  So the only option was to change the vessel that you use to eat the dip.  And spinach artichoke stuffed mushrooms was born.  I still got to eat this yummy treat without quite as much guilt.

BBQ chicken flatbread pizza is football watching food perfection, in a nutshell.  It’s football season!  I’m sooo excited…and I just can’t hide it…But really, I’m excited for the food 🙂  I truly believe most people fall into three categories when it comes to football:  1 – die hard gotta watch every Sunday if my team loses I’m in a bad mood the rest of the week kind of fans.  2 – Watching football is ok but only if I have some tasty football watching food to munch on.  And 3 – Football?  Sundays?  What are you talking about?  I’m busy shopping, watching netflix all day or having all day long brunches with my favorite gal pals.  I fall somewhere between a 1 and a 2 (closer to 2 for sure).  My hubby is a 1.  So, on Sundays we watch football.  I half watch while I clean, cook and prep for the week.  So, for the first weekend of football I was all about making some yummy munchies.  And what’s better to eat while watching football than wings and pizza?  Nothing, the answer is there is nothing better to eat while watching football!  So this weekend, we started football season out right with a bbq chicken flatbread pizza and some yummy wings.
