Football's Big Day





I kept scratching my head on Saturday. Why were there NFL football games on television this past Saturday. Then my husband explained (in his how could you not know this voice), "it's the playoffs!"

The playoffs!! That means Super Bowl is right around the corner. The Boy has called dibs on Super Bowl Sunday as his official birthday party. I have been making plans for his birthday party completely ignorant to how fast it is creeping up.

So, I am wanting to hear from you. What do  you serve on Super Bowl Sunday?

I have been surfing Pinterst and came up with these ideas. What do you think?

I plan to make these to put outside to welcome our guest to the party. Just waiting to see who makes it the big game.

The Husband might think I am crazy but I do kinda want to grow grass as centerpieces.

I like this subway art. I think I might use this.

And how about food?

Bacon wrapped chicken breast

Pepperoni Pizza Dip- looks cheesy and yummy! Or maybe a buffalo chicken dip. Or spinach artichoke dip?

I wonder if I can execute making these. The Boy loves chocolate covered strawberries!

I think my diet is in serious jeopardy!

Thank you Pinterest! You sure have made planning my annual Super Bowl/Birthday Bash so much easier!

  2. I have a great Chicken Wraps recipe, too - so good in SUCH a bad way (dietwise). How about Alabama Firecrackers - those guys would destroy them! Check Allrecipes, stupid easy & everyone I know who's tried 'em says they're like crack, only made from saltine CRACKers. (Seems like this year's trendy snack.) Will go crack open my disintegrating favorite cookbook. -deb t.

  4. It's only 10 days into the new year ... Bacon may be "smart" but I think what'd be smarter are more heart healthy alternatives :) Jackie

  5. I will have to agree with Jackie, those strawberries too yumm-o but you are smarter. There are a couple of recipes on pinterest that might be good for you and with, Baked zucchini sticks with a fun sauce, black bean salad with avacado, corn, and good stuff. You can even do a fun lettuce wrap and use your "turkey bacon"!! Enjoy!

  6. Melissa and Jackie,
    I assure you that the Super Bowl party is not for me. It is for The Boy and 20 or so of his closest friends. The food that night, will not be eaten by either Wayne or I. It will be devoured by all those growing boys.

    As far as Wayne and I go, yes I promise we will find some healthier alternatives. (and maybe only 1 cupcake!)
