You see, for me, the game is not the main attraction. In fact, this morning I had to do some internet research to even educate myself on which two teams were playing. Pathetic, I know. Especially for someone throwing a little Super Bowl party.
Rather, the excitement for me is gathering with friends, and enjoying each other and some good food and entertainment.
Our long term friends Carole and Bob, are such good friends that they are even willing to be guinea pigs for all the new recipes I'm trying.
Here is my game day menu, separated into the "safe" items, and the "guinea-pig/never-been-made-before" items:
carrot sticks and hummus
salsa and tortilla chips
stuffed celery snacks (see this blog post for the recipe.)
Peanut butter blossom cookies made with Dove chocolate hearts
New recipes: (recipes to come in future blog posts, pending good reports)
Kahlua Pork Bar-B-Q (Has been slow cooking for the last 20 hours, and the smell in the house is making me drool.)
Fruit Salad To Die For
And, just for a few additional kicks and giggles, we will be playing Superbowl Commercials Bingo during the game.
If you're watching it, enjoy the game, folks!
Have some good food, too.
