Two Sides to Every Super Bowl

Okay, confession time. When Kansas City won their division and were headed to the Super Bowl, I was really hoping that Green Bay would go all the way, too. I am a Green Bay Fan by marriage. Growing up in Northern California, I cheered for the 49ers, if I cheered at all since football is not my thing.

What are you Serving for the Big Game?

Maybe it’s the shape of the meatballs peeking out from under the pinched Crescent dough. Maybe it’s the idea of serving meatballs as “finger food”. I can’t say for sure, but this recipe struck me as perfect Super Bowl Food.

My Big Game Day Menu

While Hubby watched the two remaining play-off games, I began the rather difficult task of putting together this year’s actual Super Bowl Game Day menu. (Truth be told, I was hoping it would be Kansas City and New Orleans Saints in Atlanta. How easy is that? Barbecue and Cajun dishes with a southern spin! Didn’t happen, but that’s okay, too).
