Yeah, that’s right – I’m a girl, so what? I join friends at Super Bowl parties and cheer along with the team I like better. And no, it’s not always dependant on the color of their uniforms.
As a girl, though, my favorite part of the Super Bowl isn’t the commercials. I happen to think you’re a sucker for spending 4,328,968 trillion dollars for 25 seconds of marketing. My favorite part of the Super Bowl isn’t sweaty men ramming each other, either. And I can take or leave the betting – swimming pool over office pool any day.
No, what I love… is the grub. You take the football, I’ll take the food-bowl.
First thing’s first: The chicken wings. Take a buncha wings, slather them with your favorite sauce and bake, deep fry or brown ‘em. Answers.com has a great recipe for the Buffalo wings variety, including a video for making the dip.
Once that’s out of the way, make sure you have the right crunchy snacks. It’s all about the chips: potato chips, tortilla chips, sour cream and onion potato chips, corn chips, rippled potato chips, pita chips, barbecue potato chips… and pretzels.
With the chips come the dips. Salsa, guacamole, cheese, mustard, sour cream, humus… Whatever your spread, make sure there is plenty of variety.
And what would a Super Bowl party be without the football-shaped cookies (with frosting laces)? Oh, c’mon, boys – a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do.
But, whether you’re a die-hard football fan or just along for the advertisements, check out the Super Bowl Q&A on WikiAnswers and make sure you have all your facts straight. Or at the very least, the colors of the uniforms.
