SuperBowl Sunday Soybeans

I have great Superbowl Sunday memories from my childhood with my dad.  We would go to his friends Superbowl parties and he would give me enough money to bet on 4 squares AND let me keep my winnings.  :)  I think I also had my first taste of beer at one of those parties as well...  There I would feast on chips and dip, sushi, sashimi, fried chicken and every dessert possible.  *Dad didn't really monitor what I ate since he was watching the game.*  I probably burned off all that deliciousness as I ran around and played with all the other kids.

Awesome Stadium Cake from USC FB season

Times have changed, but that doesn't mean we can't have yummy healthy treats to watch the game with!!  This is a popular snack in Hawaii and it goes great with beer.  I made this to watch the game with the Brazilian and Trainer this Sunday.  **It's Trainer approved!** 

Garlicy Goodness!
Seasoned Soy Beans
recipe from my mom

1 tsp hondashi (optional, I normally omit)
1 tsp sugar
1-2  Tbsp minced garlic
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp salt
2 dashes red chili flakes, or 1 fresh chili pepper
¼ tsp sesame oil
2 Tablespoons peanut oil

1.  Mix ingredients in a bowl and blend well like a salad dressing.
2.  Cook 1 lb package of soy beans, then cool. 
3.  Pour seasoning on, mix well.

Obviously you might want to pop a mint in if you spot a cutie at your Superbowl party...  Yummo!!
