SkinnyMini Corn Dog Muffins

Are you ready for some football?!?!! I mean, I'm totally not, but who doesn't love Superbowl Sunday?! Even I do. Maybe it's the commercials... maybe it's all the football butts... but more than likely, it's the food.

We have a busy little weekend ahead, but the mister literally has me planning events around the "are you gonna have enough time to cook?" thought process, including the "I'll just drop you off at home, so you can start cooking, and I'll run back out"  -- I'm flattered, really. 

So what I'll do for you tonight, is share what's on our Superbowl Super Menu that I am trying to keep at least halfway WeightWatchers conscious. First up... these little delights. Hotdogs + Cornbread... say what?! I'm totally making chili too, so that makes these even more exciting.

Stay tuned for what else is on tap.
