Can I just tell you all that the BF and I made (and ate) WAY too much food on Sunday. It was borderline absurd, peeps. The first thing to go into the crockpot for the big game was this dip, a favorite around these parts. The second crockpot delicacy for (what I like to call) the "stupid bowl" (only this year . . . stupid #*&$^*@#&^ packers) was the 'ole lil' smokies standby.
My first tip, go with the beef lil smokies instead of the regular pork guys; the beef absorb the sauce so much better and are, therefore, so much tastier!
For two packs of smokies, I combined 2 cups of ketchup, 2 cups of hot barbecue sauce, 1 cup of brown sugar and 1 cup of grape jelly. It made an excess of sauce, but they were so good that I couldn't get enough of the smokies OR the sauce! I couldn't even take a picture of the finished product because we tore through these so fast!
This month begins the season of visitors - the BF and are booked solid through the first weekend in April - so I am in need, I believe, of a pair of go-everywhere, comfy wedges like these:

Perfect for going from beach to bar, if you ask me!
