Alright y’all, don’t let this get around but I don’t actually watch football. The reason I say don’t let that get around is that you know any Southerner who doesn’t consider themselves to be a fan of such a sacred sport stands a serious chance of losing their citizenship card and being deported.
Fortunately, I can redeem myself to all of the football fans with the following statement: “I LOVE MAKING FOOTBALL FOOD!”
That’s right, y’all come on over and watch whatever sport you want and I’ll be happy as a lark shuttling food back and forth from the kitchen.
AND everyone knows that no football spread is complete without an ooey gooey cheesy dip. So VELVEETA and I partnered up again to bring you the following video, which I hope you’ll enjoy. I’m excited to be serving as one of five VELVEETA IT! Kitchenistas for all of 2010 where I’ll be coming to you every few months with another video post of me making something yummy with my favorite cheesy ingredient!
I hope you enjoy my video, filmed and produced by my expert cameraman – otherwise known as ye olde hubster, Ricky. Turns out, he has a few additional talents outside of building space stations!
Oh, and another great thing about this dip: It uses ground beef! Y’all know I love my ground beef. Nothing beats it for economy and versatility when it comes to feeding your family!

I’m heading off for the weekend as soon as I post this to attend a blogging conference in Nashville. Last year, I met the VELVEETA PR Folks there as well as my AWESOME Literary Agent! I’m excited about getting to meet all of the other bloggers and representatives from some of the sponsoring companies but y’all aren’t going to believe who is singing at this thing: Harry Connick JR. ~blinks~
I’ll be tweeting and facebooking this weekend so be sure you hop on over to the Southern Plate Family Facebook page or follow me on Twitter! I’d love to hear what y’all are up to this weekend in the comments. I’m always looking out for new things to do with my kids! Love y’all!
Transparency Disclosure: I have partnered with VELVEETA to serve as one of five VELVEETA it! Kitchenistas. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes vlogging about my cooking experiences with VELVEETA and developing one original VELVEETA-based recipe. I have also been compensated for the food purchased for my VELVEETA vlogs. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments – because that wouldn’t be right anyway.Yum
