Did you hear?

The Super Bowl is in mere days!

People are usually interested in the game, the commercials or the food. I’ll let you guess which category I fall under…

But yesterday, my sports-obsessed husband asked if we were going to have fun Super Bowl food. (He falls under all three categories).

“Ummm, obviously” I replied.

When I asked him if he had any requests he responded with this:

“Chicken wings, nachos, seared scallops, bacon-wrapped scallops, bacon-wrapped shrimp,” and this continued for minutes.

 I won’t serve solely junk food on Super Bowl Sunday – I like to have a mix of indulgent, delicious, cheesy foods along with a few vegetables thrown into the mix.

Here are some of the things on our standard menu, or that have caught my eye in the past few days.

Super Bowl Food: 



Are you watching the game, the commercials or eating the food?

    I am excited to watch the commercials! I have missed them the last couple years. And of course I’m going to make some yummy treats =)

    I’m in it for the game and the food. I’m not sure what I’m making yet for the party I’m headed to, so thanks for the ideas!

    I also fall into all three categories. Not only that, but I’m hosting a party this year and am in charge of the food! In other words, a list VERY similar to your husband’s has been running through my mind all week- so much pressure! I want to make all the food!

      I wish we were having a party! I want to make a ton of food but it is just the two of us and, well, that just wouldn’t be good! :)

    That mushroom pic just made my stomach growl! I’m not a football or commercial fan, but I’m definitely a dip fan!

    Is it bad I’m being a party pooper about the game because the Packers are not in it?! :) But these recipes get me excited!

    I’m definitely going to be watching the commercials more than the game…and gossiping with friends in between!
