I must confess that I am not a huge football person. I usually only watch one game a year…the Superbowl…and that is only because I want to check and see if I am going to win money on any of my boxes, watch the commercials and check out half time.
This year was different though. Instead of going to a party the hubby and I hunkered down at home with some wine. I was rooting for the Patriots because I am a Gisele fan. I mean, how adorable is she? Any gal in a Swarovski crystal jersey is a kindred spirit.
I must confess I got really into it. Maybe I do like football? Maybe it was the wine?
Either way, I enjoyed the game and I loved a lot of the commercials! Here are my faves:
Which ones did you love? Did you hate any of them?
I am not a huge football fan. Scratch that. What I should say is that I am not a huge sports fan in general. I am a casual observer at best. I go to a few Yankee games each Summer. I do this to support my husband’s favorite team, wear my supercute Victoria’s Secret Pink Yankees shirt, do the wave and drink copious amounts of beer. I barely watch the game. Same goes for the Superbowl. I am SUPER excited for it this weekend but mostly because I am hoping to win some money, watch the commercials and half-time show and eat delicious things. Speaking of delicious things…
Here are some recipes for delicious Superbowl noshes:
Buffalo Chicken Dip
This recipe from the fab housewife looks delicious! I love that it is a bit spicy. My girlfriend makes this dip with Perdue Shortcuts and it comes out great. That might be an extra time-saver.
Spicy Whiskey BBQ Sliders
Everything Ree makes is scrumptious and these look like they will be no exception. My mouth waters looking at the picture!
This is my go-to Chili recipe. It is unbelievably good. The only thing I change is to add beans (because my family likes them) but otherwise Sunny’s recipe is perfect and I would not change a thing.
Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are on my menu for the Superbowl! Crispy, salty bacon paired with chocolate chip cookies! WHAT?!? Sounds like the perfect marriage to me!
Kit-Kat M&M Cake
I made one of these a few years ago with a New York Giants theme and it was the HIT of the party I attended. Here are some crappy cell phone pictures of it. (Sorry, they are all I have.)
I bought the custom M&Ms here but I think it might be too late for shipping now. Fret not, you can still grab a few big bags of regular M&Ms and pick out the colors of your team to decorate the top. I’m sure your family wont mind eating the leftover colors for the next few weeks. 🙂 Here is a link to a coupon for M&Ms, too.
I hope you all have a fabulous time watching the game. Make note of your favorite commericials because I will be sharing my picks on Monday and I would love to hear your input.
