What’s everyone doing for the Super Bowl?

I'm not sure if we have any football buffs here, but at our house, Super Bowl Sunday is one of the few nights out of the year that I actually allow my DH to eat in the living room. 

This year, his team (he's a Giants fan) didn't make it to the big show, so he's not as emotionally invested in the outcome as he has been in other games. But still, it's the whole idea of the Big Game. 

Me? I like to see the commercials!

I'm glad that we stay home and don't have to face folks with lots of perfume or tobacco smoke or air fresheners … makes it easier on my lungs!

For this year, I'm taking the easy way out and serving pigs n a blanket (from the freezer section, no less!). I'll probably make some spinach dip and have Beanitos chips (DD is allergic to corn, so we skip the corn tortilla chips), along with salsa. And we'll need something sweet for dessert … not sure what that will be. It needs to be carpet-picnic friendly, that's for sure!

What are your plans for Super Bowl Sunday?

    Well my team IS there this year but I'd be watching it anyway. I always like the commercials and half time show.However, I'm traveling! So will be watching it from a hotel room. Thought about finding a sports bar or something, but that just seems to risky with the rampant flu and asthma triggers.Dh will be watching from home and I'm sure texting me madly. He was traveling this week too and insisted on being home so he wasn't watching it from Asia with the time difference!Go Eagles!

    Kathy, I know you've got a super spread planned, even if it is in your hotel room, and I think that's a really smart choice!

    Can't wait to see what you've come up with for your Super Bowl Spread … and I'll bet you can guess which team DH is pulling for — anybody but the Patriots.

    We're making French dip sandwiches in the IP-made them once and there wasn't a shred of meat left.  It will be easy, hot sandwiches that we can eat and watch the game and is fast to fix.
