If you are like me, this Sunday is more about the food (or the road race) than it is about the teams or the game. Maybe if the Patriots were playing I would be singing a different tune- but alas, no dice.
I read in Bon Appetit’s latest issue last night that the Super Bowl should be treated as a food holiday akin to Thanksgiving- and I tend to agree. We ought to have a day where it is considered OK to eat lots of chicken wings, tacos, guacamole shaped into a field, 7 layer dips, hot cheese dips, cold cheese dips, fried food, pizza, mini sausage wieners dressed up in crescent roll dough, drink high calorie carbonated beverages (pick your poison- beer or soda- neither are good for you!), etc.
Might I suggest whipping up a batch of slider buns? Perhaps place some smoked mozzarella stuffed meatballs in them? I love carnitas! I need to remake this and update the photos and take some shots that are a little more glamorous
If you want a great Saturday project and you have fancy friends who love smoked fish- please try making your own cold smoked salmon- mike has a great method.
For dessert nothing beats brownies. These are going to get re-photographed as soon as I make them again Simplest Fudgy Brownies
Just make sure you guard your food from this cat:
