    The big game is less than a month away!!! Woot! Woot!

    Is anyone planning a gathering for the game? What fun football food do you like to serve?

    Normally friends of ours host a party every year the Saturday before the game. The thought being that people prefer not to have to get up early the next day for work - they usually play recordings of vintage superbowl games including commercials which is fun.

    However this year they are in the middle of home improvements and can't host. So we have stepped into the breach and will be doing it this year.

    But we are going to have it on the actual Sunday of the game with the understanding that few if any will stay for the whole game since it runs so late. We have DS's birthday party on the Saturday before the game and there is no way I could handle two parties in one day! LOL

    For food DH is going to smoke a brisket - Yum! I'll serve with buns, various types of mustard, BBQ and maybe a horseradishy type sauce + slices of cheese.

    Beyond that I am thinking of making:

    - Cucumber Appetizer Bites

    - Shrimp Cocktail

    - Texas Trash Dip + Tortilla Chips

    - Bacon Wrapped Pinwheels (already in freezer)

    - Twice Baked New Potatoes (also in freezer)

    - Buffalo Bacon Cheese ball + Crackers

    - Brownies

    - Edwards Key Lime Pie (already have it in the freezer!)

    - Champagne Party Punch

    I am not sure if we will host, we may since we have the biggest house in the family and can easily accommodate a gathering. Either way thinking about making pulled pork sandwiches, pepperoni bread, pigs in the a blanket and simple sides like coleslaw, chips & pretzels. Even if we don't host other family we will have left overs for lunches for the week :) which would make my mornings easier that week.

    Lots of people here are renting out their houses or extra room for this event. I'll be hiding as soon as I hear it on TV with a good book. lol

    I just looked at those cucumber bites and I love it! It's so healthy and nice looking at the same time. I may give it a try this year.

    We typically eat a tossed salad, Buffalo chicken dip, crackers, carrots and celery sticks. I also put out chicken tenders with honey mustard sauce, BBQ sauce and mustard. I keep it simple after all the time spent on food preparation and cooking/baking for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

    Mary - The cucumber bites really are very good! The biggest tip I can give is patting the cucumber part dry a couple of times before filling. I've made these several hours ahead and kept uncovered in fridge just fine. If keeping overnight in fridge I would cover them somehow but they taste great the next day too - which we know from having leftovers! :) Your menu plans sound perfect - simple but yummy!

    Ahorsesoul - Enjoy your book!

    Minta - Your menu sounds delish!
