It’s That Special Time of Year! It’s Countdown to Super Bowl Sunday

 

In case you weren’t aware, I love football. And I enjoy parties. However, the Super Bowl and party...never the twain shall meet!!

 

Larry and I have been to our share of Super Bowl parties and we finallyfootball decided that we wanted to watch the game too much to be at a party!  Super Bowl Sunday is also a day of mixed emotions for me as well. It’s (hopefully) a great game to watch and at the same time, it signals the end of the football season. 

 

Our good friends in Florida knew that so we went to the party and had fun and mingled but left before the actual start of the game. 

 

My youngest grandson and I usually have some type of friendly wager but this year will be hard because we’re both rooting for the same team. 

 

If you’re not a fan of football, you might watch just to enjoy the ads. Maybe Ron and Alexandra Seigel will watch for the ads. And those of you who are music-focused might want to watch for the Half Time Entertainment. Since I’m not a huge fan of the performers, this will be a great time to do what most every other Super Bowl viewer does...EAT!!!! 

 

Below is a Sausage Dip I’ve been making for years. It’s easy to make and can be made ahead of time. My friend’s daughter took the leftovers one year and served it over noodles! 


 

SAUSAGE DIP

 

1 regular size Owens hot/spicy sausage

½ c. finely chopped mushrooms

½ c. finely chopped celery

½ c. finely chopped onions

 

Mix into pan & saute.  Pour & strain off fat. 

 Mix in  1 small container sour cream + 1 egg+ 2 T. Parmesan cheese.  Bake 30 minutes @ 300 degrees.

 

 

Serve in chafing dish with Fritos, celery, tortilla chips.  

*I double the recipe.

 

 


 

Who will Larry and I be rooting for?

 

kansas city chiefs





PS... after the Super Bowl we have 186 days until the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH.

although I could care less about the two teams in the Super Bowl this year (usually I hate at least one team) I love the game. I hope the halftime show is better than last year.

Hello Kathy,  Will put the dip on my list for this Sunday for the game.  I am in hopes that the Chiefs win also.

Hi Kathy,

My husband will agree completely with your concept of Superbowl. We have had Superbowl parties but it is all family.  Some of us chat and fix snacks and some watch the game and eat the snacks!  My husband falls into the second category!!

Sheila Anderson the back stories are always fun!!!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I also enjoy Monday after the Super Bowl to see what ads were hits or misses.

Hi Kathy,
This looks like a yummy recipe to add to our AR virtual party food table. I don't have a favorite team this year so I'll enjoy the game, the food... and be happy for whoever wins.

Well, obviously it won't be the same with the Pat's playing. LOL

I'll be watching. I agree with you about the party. Even I, who don't even love the game like you do, prefer not to have the distraction of a crowd. Ashley and her husband and maybe my son will be joining us. That's enough of a party for us!

The sausage dip sounds amazing, Kathy.  I will need to give it a try.  I'm not much of a half-time entertainment person either, but I always look forward to the Budweiser commercials and the Clydesdales.  I do miss their old frog commercials though.

Joan Cox It really is good and even better the next day. 

Krystin Mitchell, CPA CFE food is very important!!!!  You can't have just a regular old hamburger. 

Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I can't even remember who performed at halftime.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® I was more into the parties when I was a lot younger but now I just want to watch the game. My youngest grandson would love to watch it with us because he's the only one in his family who really understands football.

Carol Williams I'm trying not to get too excited because you know how I get during a game.

Morning Kathy.

I have no dog in this hunt, but I wouldn't bet against Larry.  I know I'll be in bed, not long after the game starts.

The dip sounds delicious. We will be driving back from New York after seeing the grand babies. Hopefully traffic will be good if everyone is getting ready for the game.  Who's playing. Lol

I share your passion for football and yes, like you and Larry, we have been known to leave if there isn't a room that we can actually watch the game!! People here have gotten better about having 'serious' rooms and 'fun' rooms at their SB parties. When the game is on, we're in the serious room! LOL

GREAT recipe and I've bookmarked it. My grandmother used to make this and I don't know that I have a written copy anywhere so, I really appreciate you sharing this, Kathy!
