The "Supper" Bowl

I wonder if I can admit this little secret and not lose blog friends....?

I don't care about football.
Or who wins the Superbowl.

BUT - yes, there is a but.
I DO care about all the good eating that goes along with the Superbowl, so for this reason - I LOVE the Superbowl!

In about an hour, Brian and I are going to a "Supper Bowl" party at a friends place. This couple are major foodies like us, so they have dubbed their get-together "The Supper Bowl". It's all about good eating while cheering for your team of choice. Brian also doesn't really care much about football, so both of us are going to concentrate on all the yummy food.

Here's my contribution to the Supper Bowl foodery:

I found this gorgeous Baked Ricotta recipe over at Seven Spoons and knew that I had to try it. The only difference is that I added ham to mine, since Brian and I are totally into meat in everything, hehehehe. And I got the cute Nacho Bites idea from My Baking Addiction. The only difference is that I glammed mine up a bit by making a Strawberry Guacamole Salsa to top it with instead of regular tomato salsa.

Alrighty guys - your turn - what are your Super Bowl eats?

(PS. The winner of the Faded Prairie Giveaway is Pamela. Yay, Pamela!)
(PPS. I have a Valentine's Napkin Ring Tutorial up at Meylah. Check it out!)

I'm so excited I won the giveaway!! Thank you so much!! :)

And guess what...I could care less about the super bowl, as well. In fact, I don't even know who's playing. he he

Meghan said...

Those Nacho Bites look divine!

I, too, could care less about football. However, since I don't really cook, the hubs and I are ordering a BBQ chicken pizza!

Sarah said...

Supper Bowl sounds like so much fun! Alex and I just bought some chips and salsa since it's just the two of us. Last year I did baked nachos which was really good, but this year we're going for lazy-easy, hehehe!

Hilary Leister said...

Don't worry, I'm definitely not into the football either haha... (I did homework during the game haha)...

My supper bowl eats: A Mexican fajita spread! Lots of toppings and awesome chicken fajitas.

molly YEH! said...

oh wow that baked ricotta looks delicious!
and i go to super bowl parties JUST for the food. what better excuse to stuff your face with pigs and blankets??

K said...

Oooh, yum! I didn't do anything for the Superbowl, so I can't contribute. Sad.

KarenandJason said...

mmm I'm going to have to try making those nacho bites! They look scrumptious! No worries, I'm not a football fan as well, so you still have me following your blog!

Meg said...

yum those look fantastic! i abstained from the super bowl, and enjoyed cupcakes and delicious creamy pasta at home with sex and the city :) maybe not as good as a supper bowl party, but pretty darn good!

Tamara Nicole said...

Mmmm yes the food is amazing for Super Bowl! We made yum yum sliders of all different kinds of topping choices.

ALSO I loved your napkin ring tutorial:-)

Rick said...

Well, I don't think you're alone, but did you enjoy the game. One of the best Super Bowl finishes ever!! Were you in the kitchen while it was happening.

Just doing a little blog surfing and happened upon yours.

God bless.

Sarah Mina said...

ooh, that dip looks amazing! i'm not a big super bowl fan either. nfl just isn't my thing. college football on the otherhand, is!

Sarah said...

I am so with you on not caring one bit about the super bowl, except for the friends and the eating! Glad you all are taking the healthy route. It's refreshing... plus, it leaves a not-so-terrible feeling in your tummy after all the cheering.

Love your blog, thanks for still posting!

PS --> I did NO celebrating.

Rebecca said...

i am sooooo with you on this...we took the easy road and ordered chinese food...it was so yummy because we never, ever order chinese food!

What a great way to enjoy the football game. It looks so yummy.
I was once right at the university stadium without any knowledge of a game but I enjoyed the atmosphere. Every one never sit down on a bench. We stood on a bench and kept yelling out!

Phoenix said...

Oh God. We totally can't be blog friends.

;)

You know how into the Superbowl and football I am? Well, of course you do, because you read my blog on it. But I left 20 minutes before it was over to go a yoga/meditation class.

THAT'S how into the Superbowl I was. :)

STRAWBERRIES in your guacamole?! That must be tried in my household immediately. I've done mango and peaches before, but yummm, strawberries.

Tender Branson said...

Love the little nacho bites. I'm amazed at the idea of strawberry guacamole. I also went mexican for the super bowl with a mushroom tostada.

Bri said...

Don't worry. I also don't care about the superbowl. :)

Tali Schiffer said...

I'm with you regarding football... I don't care for it a wee bit!
Those treats looks yummy! I just admire your cooking and food photography skills!!

those nacho bites just are the cutest! must have been tasty too.

Kristin said...

I admit that I did not watch even one minute of Sunday night's game, and yet, I could recite for you every tray and platter of food that was on the table at our friends' house. I ate more M&M cookies than I can count.

Now I'm off to check out that ricctta recipe. Yum!

tara said...

I hope you enjoyed the baked ricotta! Yours looks lovely and I wholeheartedly endorse the addition of ham. I'll be doing the same next time.
