If you’re like me, you might have forgotten that the Super Bowl is this weekend.
… Maybe it’s because you don’t follow professional sports.
… Maybe it’s because your team was knocked out of the running before the playoffs even began.
… Maybe it’s because you have been focusing on a ton of other things and were thinking the big football game was next Sunday instead of this one.
Or maybe it’s all of the above.
Whatever the case, today is the way we all wonder what the heck we’ll be bringing to our friend’s home for the big game. And lucky for y’all, I got myself together enough to pull together a little Super Bowl 2013 Food Guide. Or something.
Looking for a meaty dish?
… But what about sides to go with those meats you prepared?
This Honey Mustard Coleslaw is a winner, especially for folks who aren’t keen on mayonaise-heavy dishes.
… What about an appetizer?
I’ve got you covered with Caramelized Onion Guacamole. Not an avacado fan? Check out Black Bean Dip and Winston’s Hummus, two crowd-pleasing dishes. Or you could get a little wild by serving Spicy Sesame Kale Chips. While it’s not traditional Super Bowl party fare, it is mighty delish.
… And drinks?
What about a Blizzard? If you’re starting out early, check out Bloody Beer and Blended Mimosas, two of my favorite morning drinks. And if you’re feeling really strong, how about Cutty Sark on the Rocks? (Bless you if you’re drinking this.)
… And if you’ve been appointed as a dessert maker for this Sunday’s shenanigans?
Bring the Ooey Gooey Bars. I guarantee they’ll be a hit. So will the Quebec Maple Pecan Drops if you give them a shot. But if you aren’t into cream cheese, try out the Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Sandwiches or Fig Pinwheels, two fun dishes that are a little different than normal party desserts.
Now I’ve got to know: What are your plans for Sunday? Will you be making anything special?
