Personally, I’m not all that into football or the SuperBowl. In fact, I am not really sure who’s playing. Once the Chargers lost, I lost interest. But, I know that FishPapa and the boys enjoy watching and rooting for their favorite teams. And that’s a good thing, because it got me cable tv which in turn got me the Food Network. But I digress….

What I enjoy about football days is the good excuse for cooking up a feast. Football games just lend themselves to yummy snacks and tailgating type meals. So, I’m going to cook up a storm this weekend in honor of The Game.

Here’s what we’ll be having:

Veggies and Ranch Dip
Chips, Salsa and Guacamole
Potato Salad
Grilled Sausages
Ribs (a new thing – I’m going to try to make them myself!)
Kettle Corn
Triple Chocolate Brownie Sundaes

How about you? Why don’t you brainstorm with your peeps what kinds of snack they like and see what fun food you can come up with. Even if you don’t like football.

What’s a fun food at your house?

  1. BusyMom says

    Yum! I always include chocolate (usually M&Ms) at the SuperBowl party, but I might have to consider some Triple Chocolate Brownie Sundaes.

    We generally do chili.

  2. FishMama says

    M&Ms sound good.

  3. We’ll be doing finger foods. I used to do this whole production, but I got tired and wanted to watch the commercials and at least enjoy SOME food.

    So that said,
    Onion Rings
    Mozzarella Sticks (a super bowl staple)
    Chips with dip
    Chicken fingers coated in buffalo wild wings sauce

  4. I have a recipe for crock pot ribs… haven’t tried them yet.but heard tehy are wonderful..
    BBQ Baby back ribs
    2 Tbs dark brown sugar
    2 tsp smoked ground paprika
    1 tsp chili powder
    1 tsp salt
    1tsp freshly ground black pepper
    2 1/2 lbs pork baby back ribs(guess u can use beef if u want)
    1/4 cup your favorite BBQ sauce
    In a small bowl, combine the sugar, paprika, chili powder,salt,and pepper. spread the spice mixture all over the ribs, covering the entire surface. PLace the ribs in the crock pot slow cooker. Cover; cook on low 8-10 hours until done. During the last 30 min of cooking, brush with BBQ sauce and continue cooking
