January is my favorite time of the year because everyone is eating healthy and I’m over here saying, “What party food can we make for the playoff game tonight?”

Football. I’m talking football playoffs. And the intensity is insane.

Watching the game is all about the appetizers. I’m thinking of it as the appetizer playoff.

Which appetizers will prove themselves worth for the big game…the Super Bowl.

Start off with some White American cheese. You can get it at the deli counter sliced. American is definitely the silkiest. Don’t substitute anything else.

By the way, I’ve been using my Duolingo app to learn Spanish. It says that I’m 49% fluent in Spanish. It’s only taken me four months to get there. They don’t give away percentages lightly.

I’m starting to understand more and more. So when I hear Queso Blanco I actually hear “White Cheese“.  Awesome, right?
