David and I are not football people. There, I said it. We hardly know what’s going on, exactly, when we watch a game. Most years, we only vaguely know which teams are in the Superbowl until we watch it (except for last year, Patriots v. Jets — my home town v. adoptive home town). But we do love to participate in the spirit and the event-ness of Superbowl Sunday, and, in our household, it’s become a kind of a food tradition. Mainly, we enjoy eating Superbowl festive food while drinking cider and wine. No rowdy party or anything, just the two of us eating and trying to figure out what’s happening.
This Sunday, my plan is to make the following:
- Guacamole (w/rice crackers)
- Oven-baked chicken wings — still mulling over spices
- Festive coleslaw w/mango
- Rock the party spicy pork ribs
(We will definitely have leftovers, which is just fine, since all of the above will keep for a couple of days.)
What will you make for your Superbowl Sunday?
