I’ve been so busy thinking about this historical blizzard that is currently hitting us that I have barely put a thought to this weekend’s big football game! I’m pretty excited to cheer on the New England Patriots to (hopefully) another big win. I have a feeling that most of our readers will be cheering on the Seahawks, but we all can agree on what makes this game so special- the food! Are you hosting a big football game viewing party this weekend? Evite and Qdoba have teamed up to provide a great article with 5 Steps to an Easy Football Party.
My favorite tip from this article is #3- ordering a catered meal from a restaurant. While I love to cook, I love to be able to have time to watch the game and hang out with my guests. For parties, I love to have the party catered and then I can focus on making one or two of my own favorite appetizers or desserts. Qdoba offers a variety of catering options, including their nacho, taco, and burrito bars…my mouth is watering just thinking about it! Then, save yourself even more time by using Evite to send special watch the game invitations.
Once you figure out the main meal for your football party, you can have fun deciding what appetizer and dessert you can make for your party. Here are some of our favorite game day recipes from the 2 Sisters 2 Cities archives:
Tex-Mex Pimiento Cheese Dip– This recipe always make an appearance on my Super Bowl menu. This might be true for you too after you try it!
Mexican Pinwheels– This super easy appetizer recipe has been pinned over 6,000 times on Pinterest!
Spinach Artichoke Dip– Better than any restaurant spinach artichoke dip- trust me on this one. It’s so good.
Peanut Butter Cream Pie– Don’t plan on leftovers with this recipe- your guests will love it!
Boxed Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies– These cookies are so easy to make and always come out deliciously puffy and moist.
Salted Caramel Brownies– I can’t wait to make these this weekend! I love the perfect combination of chocolate, caramel, and salt.
To all my fellow Northeasterners- start digging (once it’s safe out!) and start planning! And to everyone else, please send warm wishes our way and have fun planning your game day festivities.
