I have to be honest here, I’m not planning on watching the game.
Oh, it will probably be on in the living room, but I will most likely be doing other things. Like cleaning out my closets. Organizing my clothes. Cooking food for the coming week. Drinking beer. Stuff.
If you have a viewing party to go to later, here is something you can throw in your crockpot and take over. Or you can just make it for yourself to eat during week. I found the recipe on Sweet Little Blue Bird, but tweaked it just a bit. What I cooked is listed below. The cream cheese addition was me.
2.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
12 oz Franks Red Hot sauce
1 packet Ranch dressing mix
1 package cream cheese, softened
1. Mix the hot sauce and ranch dressing mix in a small pan. Heat until it starts to bubble. Allow to cool slightly.
2. Pour over chicken in crock pot. Cook on high for ~4 hours.
3. Shred chicken. Add in cream cheese, mix to combine.
I’ve been this with tortilla chips and in wraps. You can add shredded cheddar, crumbled blue, scallions, chives… whatever floats your boat.

- Cornsider Barnwell Slyboro - Raw Goat Milk (West Pawlet, VT)
Honestly, I picked it only because I saw Slyboro on the label. I've had their cider... I like their cider. So a cheese washed in it shouldn't be that bad... right? Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong. It smelled funky, and tasted even worse. M identified the odor as sewage; what I thought of it truly will not be posted here. What I will say on the matter is that I don't think they meant "grassy notes." That may have been a typo.
- Three Village Cheese Cascadita - Raw Goat Milk (Poland, NY)
Okay, I think the safe bet would be to stay away from raw goat milk cheeses. They. Are. Not. Good. The Cascadita is more of a hard cheese, but it just doesn't taste right. Not at all pungent as the Slyboro, but there is a definite off taste. Not sure how to describe it... it taste like freezer burn (if that makes sense). It's as if the cheese absorbed the flavor of whatever it was in. Plastic. Waxy even. Weird, since the cheese wasn't covered in wax.
