I must confess. I’m not really much of a football fan, but I do like the hoopla of the Super Bowl. I like the excuse to eat lots of junk and have a party. Even if it’s a party for two, I still like to make an occasion of it.
Last year, because it was the 50th Super Bowl, I decided that my snacks would be inspired by the 1960s. The menu included fondue, cocktail weenies, Piccolo Pizzas (you can see another variation of these here) , and my favorite 1960s dessert bars called Split Levels.
There was also pickled okra, wrapped with prosciutto, and smeared with cream cheese and horseradish. We had A LOT of leftovers.
I find the game itself pretty boring, so I spent most of the game creating obnoxious memes using screencaps from Dragnet.
Three people on Tumblr seems to enjoy them.
What’s your plan for Super Bowl 2017? Do you make a feast, order pizza, or skip it altogether?
I have to work up to almost kickoff time this year, so my menu will be simplified. If I get really bored (and you know I will) I’ll probably create football memes from Starsky & Hutch screencaps or something just as obnoxious.
