Superbowl Food Roundup

Guys, I love football.    All of my Sundays for the past few months are spent snuggled up on my couch watching.   We are Broncos fans.  But I do have a soft spot for the Bears and the Jets.  Want to know something funny?  Ivy will ALWAY root for the opposite team as Darin and I.  She roots for the bad guys as she calls them.  We even tried to trick her by telling her the team we wanted to win was the bad guys.  But then she would switch as soon as we would cheer for that team.  Gah!  That silly girl.   I am SO sad that the season is ending.  And yes I'm being totally serious!  In all honesty I'm not super stoked on the teams in the Superbowl this year,  I'm just hoping for a fun and exciting game.  Of course us girls think the fun part is to come up with a yummy menu of snacks and appetizers.  One of my favorite kinds of dinner.  In a rut or need some ideas?  Here's a little roundup of some things we might be having this Sunday.  

These buffalo chicken poppers are at the top of my list of things to try.  I really like buffalo chicken dip but these would be fun to change it up a bit, and they just look super yum.   You can find the recipe at Iowa Girl Eats.

I am fairly certain that Peanut Butter and Jelly popcorn is going to make an appearance at the big game this year.  Darin has been asking for it ever since I munched the last little bit a month ago.  It can be made ahead of time which rocks since we will be rushing home from church to watch the game.

Ok.  My next suggestions is going to lack a photo.  Seriously.  Looking back through old recipes I've posted I really am kind of embarrassed.  On the other hand its nice to see that my photography has gotten infinitely better!  If you are looking for more of a meal may I suggest fish tacos?!  Fish sticks are awesome in fish tacos.  I highly recommend the ones from Costco. They make you feel better about eating fish sticks.  Make sure and grab some avocados and splurge on some fresh tortillas.  Round up all of your favorite taco fixings and its an easy dinner that people can make themselves.  Which is always a bonus right? 

These cookies still reign supreme in our house I'm pretty sure.  Anther great thing to make ahead of time and pop in the freezer til Sunday.

If you are looking for a hearty soup can I suggest this one from A Farmgirl Dabbles ?!  Its kind of a lot of work, but it is SO so worth it, we scarfed it up.  It was a little spicy so if you are trying to please the littles too, maybe cut back on the red pepper flakes.  That is some seriously good soup I tell ya!

Doest that help get your menu's rolling?!  But here's where I need your help.  A Superbowl party isn't complete unless you have some kind of dip, no?  I'm looking for something different to try but haven't stumbled across the right thing yet. Have you got THE dip you could share?    I'd love you forever.

And just so you know.  I guess I am going for the Giants.  There is just something about Tom Brady that bugs!!!  Am I right?


  1. Hey Cassie - Not sure if you've tried this before but it's an easy "winner" at all parties for me. A large can of chili and a block of cream cheese - microwave for 5 min and mix. Serve with corn chips or a sliced baguette. Yummy, yummy!

  2. ooops! Just was on Cassie's blog - sorry Jenn! (Long day!) :-)


I la la love hearing from you!
