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
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!
