How do I prevent the Jquery menu mouseover effect?

I am using the default jquery menu (v1.9.2).  I have the menu working, but I need to disable the mouseover effect that causes the LI element to change background properties and retain the menu opening.

In other words, I want the LI element to remain static, but to open the secondary menu when the user mouses over it.

Here's my sample code: http://jsfiddle.net/81mf4fgt/
