Apparently the Superbowl is this weekend. Who knew? :D My son, who to my knowledge has never watched a football game in his life, except for Superbowls, informed me he would be watching this Sunday and wanted to know what I was planning for food.

Um, nothing? :D My parents went to a Superbowl party every year, and I remember taking my Mom to that same party for years after my father passed away.

So, I guess I'd better figure out something football worthy to make for the lad, although we won't be having a party, and he's a bit young for beer just yet.

Chicken wings come to mind. Chili, but I made that a few days ago. Nachos? Surely there is something more inspiring out there for football watching types of food?

Not just chicken wings, Buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing. Look, superbowl is really about favorite MAN foods! Pizza is one, wings, fajitas, fried chicken, picnic foods in the winter!!! Hamburgers, chili-burgers. Fried, cheesy, crunchy, strong tastes!!! Chips, dips.

Ok, except I like most of those foods too! I have blue cheese dressing left over. I can thin that out for some dip. I can do buffalo wings. I don't think I'll be doing fried chicken as we're having roast chicken tomorrow. Fajitas I could do. Hamburgers we'd have to shovel our way to the grill for. Oh wait. I'd have to do that for fajitas too. Nachos, definitely. Anyone got a good nacho cheese recipe? Chips and dip I have.

I'm going to confess that we actually watched the Superbowl last year. We happened to turn it on and got caught up in the whole thing. Ryan wants the Steelers to win this year, which means I'd have to root for the Cardinals. :D

Fajitas restaurant style are often sliced first then sautéed in a skillet along with the peppers and onions.

If I could relive teen years, with Dad, in front of the tube, I would ask for southern fried food (chicken, fish, shrimp, onion rings, fries). Maybe even poutine.

We are really last minute Charlie's when it comes to sporting events...hockey, curling, baseball, you name it. We haven't a clue who is playing but like to get caught up in the excitement. I am going to make chilli and corn bread. We have been south the lasr 3 winters and watched it on a jumbo screen on the beach.
Um..little different with our predicted snow and cold temps.

And it's Superbowl Sunday again. It's just the two of us, and I've been ill, so I think it will just be chicken wings for snacks. One of these days we'll have a superbowl party at the cottage maybe and I'll get more creative, but right now, this is about all I can manage.

hot wings for Don, honey hoisin wings for me. Haven't tried the honey hoisin before.

Read the Super Bowl section in yesterday's paper so have some idea about the players etc. I didn't know that about the guy from the movie "Blindside" being a Raven's player.

Um...watching golf at the moment.

Yes the second half, the game kind of came alive. I did make wings for the game. Honey hoisin and hot wings.

They were both really good, but neither of us ate much since my husband is now almost as sick as I still am. Have taken stuff out to make chicken soup for dinner.

This wasn't the superbowl, but the playoff game a couple of weeks before.

Meatballs in Thai chili sauce, spinach artichoke dip, 7 layer mexican dip, wings and roasted shrimp. Too much food for 4 people, but we managed to put a pretty good dent into it!!
