Eric and I almost always have plans for the Super Bowl but this year we did not. We were both determined to have a Super Bowl party, or at least eat Super Bowl food, even if it was just the two of us! Our last minute, the day of, Super Bowl party planning ended up in a whole spread of food. From BBQ, Bacon Blue Cheese Burgers, to 7 layer dip, to jalapeno poppers, we had it all! All thanks to Eric (he did all the cooking and cleaning)! And it ended up being a small shindig with about 6 friends (who none really care for football) all eating and talking about the not so hot half time performances! It was so much fun!
And in case you are wondering the team I was cheering for, the Green Bay Packers, were on fire and won! It really was a good game and the reasons I choose the Packers to win were simple (so not based on stats):
- The fact that their mascot is cheese. Um, anything food related is always a winner!
- Because one of my favorite TV shows, That 70’s Show, took place in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
- And because the Green Bay “G” is shaped like the University of Georgia “G” and since I am dating a former UGA boy this was an obvious reason!
Yesterday was also exciting because the newspaper article that I was interviewed for about my Super Bowl party tips (I briefly mentioned it here) was published. Even though the Super Bowl is over for this year you should head over to read my tips to get a jump start on your party planning for next year! Plus, I shared a tasty recipe for Classic Guacamole (in addition to a Texas Style Chili)!
