I have to admit that I absolutely love the Super Bowl, but I have never actually watched any of them. I could not even tell you the names of the teams that have a good chance of going. I know that is sounds crazy, I see bits and pieces of the game and I do tune in for the commercials because so many people talk about them. I love the party during the Super Bowl, family and friends all gathering around to kick back and spend time just having fun. I love having people over and the fact that my house is open so I can do my favorite thing which is preparing all the foods and keeping people fed. I still get to interact and spend time with everyone while doing what I enjoy.
Today I ran to start checking out items for my menu, while I had items I needed to pick up, I wanted to go get some ideas as to what to make this year. There are so many great options out there depending on how much you want to have available, the time you want to spend making the food and of course your budget. We headed to Walmart to grab a few things and I walked to find some ideas and deals.
I am going to do a combination of things for our party. This is the first Super Bowl where there is going to be someone here other than my husband and my kids so it has to be good. Of course there will be the traditional things like the Velveeta and RoTel dip with Tostitos.
We will also have the Lil Smokies. Not sure if they will be wrapped or in a sauce, maybe both.
Of course meatballs are a must. Do you think anyone will notice if they are made with turkey?
Those are the main things I can think of. I know there are plenty of other options out there. It was getting close to lunch and nap time so we had to head home. I am going to have to go on a hunt for recipes. I have always done something for the Super Bowl, this year I want to step it up a bit. I am really enjoying getting to cook now that I am home and have the time for it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know, I like the guests we have coming so I definitely want to make them come back one day, lol.
