Super Bowl Sunday

February 8, 2010   Unlike last year when the Steelers were in the Super Bowl, I had absolutely no interest in or allegiance to either of the teams playing in the big game this year.

Therefore, my friend Maddy and I decided to just cook a lot of food for the Super Bowl gathering and spend very little time watching the game. A group of our friends offered to host a party in their suite where we could have access to their kitchen. In return, we would feed them all of the delicious treats we cooked up.

With a few small sauce pans, a couple of bowls and a cookie sheet, Maddy and I (along with a few other helpers) managed to cook chili, parmesan risotto, pizza, hamburgers, homemade popcorn, nachos and a fresh batch of guacamole. The only thing we ate out of the bag were the tortilla chips!

We served our food to a suite full of boys and almost forgot to leave some for ourselves in the end.
For those football fans out there, yes, I did manage to see the interception and the Saint's two-point conversion success, so I was half paying attention to the game.

But let's be honest, most people don't watch the Super Bowl just for the football — they watch it for the food, friends and fun.
