Are You Ready for some Football?
Hello readers! As many of you know, it is now less than a week until the Superbowl, which this year will feature an epic match-up of the hard-hitting Pittsburgh Steelers against the Aaron-Rodgers-offense-machine Green Bay Packers. Personally, I'm rooting for the Packers, mostly because I'm a big Rodgers fan, but also because I really dislike Pittsburgh sports. (CROSBY!!!!)
Now, I don't know how it works in your house, but in mine, the Superbowl is usually a day of packaged frozen junk food (followed by a day of gastrointestinal regret on Monday). This year, I decided it would be different! So, for the next week, I will share with you all some of my favorite football foods.
Some will be slightly healthy (but still taste good). Others will not. At least one will have copious amounts of cheese (a nod to Green Bay's Cheeseheads, natch).
I will be having some people over for the big game, so hopefully this will whet their appetites, and inspire you all to skip the frozen foods aisle this Superbowl Sunday, and instead make fresh, homemade food for your gridiron gang!
Oh, and a little side note for all you sports enthusiasts: Check out my brother's blog: JFlanland.blogspot.com, for news and analysis of all things sporty.
