Are you ready for some football?
OK, I’ll admit, I am no football fanatic in any way, shape, or form. I don’t even understand the game. It looks like a bunch of needy guys jumping on one another with a whole lot of whistle blowing and time outs, in my opinion. That being said, I have countless memories of Superbowl Sunday celebrations growing up. The family and I piled in the car and headed to some friends warm and cheerful home for 3+ hours of excruciating football rendered bearable by the 3+ hours of deliciously rich and heavy finger foods. Bring on the chili, the dips, the chips, the brownies, the cookies, and the brats. Stuff me full of calories and watch me cheer. I won’t know which side is winning or whose doing what but I bet you I can yell louder than the rest of them! What I lack in knowledge, I make up for in spirit, and the always-exciting high of a good ole’ fashioned sugar high!
Here are some great recipes for Superbowl dishes from around the web:
Sweet Potato Nachos with Chipotle Black Beans from Sports Glutton
Chocolate Zucchini Muffins from Sprint2TheTable
Black Bean and Roasted Corn Nacho Bites from Peas and Thankyou
Handheld Farmer Cheese Pies from Serious Eats
Mini Pretzel Dogs from Joy the Baker
Throw-in-a-Pot Vegetarian Chili from Kath Eats
and if all else fails there is always pizza delivery and a few gallons of ice-cream.
