Tailgate Foods!

8 05 2009

Yesterday we went to the NHL game and tailgated for dinner before hand.  I made Pasta Salad, Buffalo Chicken Dip and we grilled Steak Kabobs pre-marinated. It was really easy to prepare ahead of time and DELICIOUS!

Pasta Salad:

I made the pasta and tossed it with 3 Tbs Pesto and pitted ripe olives ( 1 can). Jeff picked up veggies that he thought would go nicely:
Organic Grape Tomatoes, English Cucumber and Snow Peas! He did so good!

I added  those and also this Fat Free Feta I found at Trader Joes- 1 BLOG 006

It was only $2.99 and at other stores this size can be close to twice that expensive $6 !

Buffalo Chicken Dip:1 BLOG 008
Layer 1: Softenend Cream Cheese ( 1 block, lowfat) and 1 Tb milk mixed to spreadable consistency

Layer 2: 1 cup shredded chicken ( you can use precooked, boiled chicken breasts or even canned chicken works well) mixed with 1/2 cup Franks’ Red Hot

Layer 3: Ranch Dressing ( about 1/3 of the bottle or enough to lightly cover chicken) ( and yes, Jeff got this because it was Newman’s Own and they sent us all kinds of organic products to review)

Layer 4: Shredded Cheese ( I used about 3/4 cup 2% milkfat)
