Are you ready for some football (snacks)?

Superbowl is this weekend... it's the Giants vs. the Patriots... who's going to win?  More important, what are you serving?  We've hosted a party for....well... I can't remember.  Maybe 10 years.  We've tried to "theme" either the venue or teams.  I only started taking pictures since 2007 and have a few to share with you.

Sorry for the quality of this picture but you get the idea - the year was 2007 and the game was held in Miami - some of us wore tropical shirts! The veggie island was fun to make -  I used potatoes for the island bases, carrots for the trunks and green peppers for the palms!  I think it turned out pretty cute- if you look close you can see a "star" fish.


The next year (2008) the game was held in Phoenix and we made a "cactus" out of english cucumbers and almond slivers.  Mr. John, the engineer, figured out how to slice them to"bend" and we used a wire coat hanger to shape



In 2010 it was the Saints vs. the Colts... that was a fun year and we kind of went all out!

First up was a Madri Gras cake.  I think the recipe came from Emeril











Our French Quarter!



At the end of the night, we crowned the King and Queen!!



2011 was the Packers vs. the Steelers. I had one happy son-in-law!


 Dessert was sundaes with colored M&M's


My centerpiece


 With superbowl a few days away, I'm working on my menu - New England Clam Chowder and something New York'ish (got any good ideas?)  We have about 12 people and everyone brings something to share.  I really don't have a preference on who wins BUT I do care what we are eating :-)


Better luck next year Vikings!

Side note - I have a friend as old as the superbowl but I won't name names - you know who you are!
