Yes, I like football. No, I’m not a fanatic. Yes, I like watching the big game. No, I could care less about the Super Bowl commercials. What?! Yeah, I know. So many people say they watch the game because of the commercials. But I was in advertising. I am sick of ads and commercials. I like Super Bowl parties because of the food. Hell, I like parties in general because of the food! Isn’t it always about the food?
So what is classic football watchin’ grub?
You gotta have wings or pizza or both. Definitely a salty snack like chips or Pretzel Crisps. Of course you have to have some kind of dip. My personal favorite is my white queso. I could inhale the whole bowl.
This time around I went a little healthier on a classic, the Garden Veggie Dip. Low-fat cream cheese, some feta and a bit of Greek yogurt. Mixed in with oodles of fresh herbs, garlic and veggies. A Mediterranean twist on an American favorite. You can find the recipe here for my Garden Veggie Dip.
I could care less which team wins or loses, this weekend. But, I will say I am not fan of either Manning brothers. So, by default, I suppose I shall cheer on the Seahawks. Or, I will sit quietly, snack on the munchies and hope that the Chargers have a great season next year.
Disclosure: Thanks to the folks at Pretzel Crisps for sending me a terrific goody bag filled to the rim with every flavor of Pretzel Crisps. My kids totally inhaled most of them! I was not compensated in any other way to write this post.
