"Snacks on Snacks": Super Bowl Food and a Story too!


I've been ambivalent about the Super Bowl ever since 1969 -- Super Bowl III -- the year Broadway Joe Namath lead the Jets to victory. Yes, I remember Super Bowl III vividly, I was 14 at the time, and no one was policing the punch bowl. It was the only football party that my parents ever threw, and, it had nothing to do with football. Every woman was in love with Namath, including my mother, and, she invited her very best women friends (and their spouses) to HER super-bowl party!

She served some of those little cocktail wieners wrapped in Pillsbury crescent rolls (I know because she had me roll them); some deviled eggs (I know because she had me peel the eggs); and, some black-bottomed cupcakes (I know because I got to lick the bowl)!

At the end of the night, I offered to clean up (for a fee), and, tucked my parents into bed. I cleaned almost until dawn, and, finished what was left of the ginger-ale and Calvert 'punch-like' concoction. My first Super Bowl party, my first all-night party, and, my first hangover...all subsequent Super-Bowl celebrations pale in comparison!!!

In the event you are still pondering ideas for this Sunday night's Super Bowl XLVI, over the past two weeks I worked on a couple of things that will put some spice into your par-tay:

How about a: Thai-Style Ginger-Chicken Pizza made w/Spicy Peanut Sauce & topped w/Sweet Chili Sauce:


And, maybe some: Asian Sriracha Shrimp a la Diavolo to go with it:


Super-spicy isn't what you had in mind, and, you just want to be a couch potato for the night?

How about: Oven-Roasted Sweet Potato 'Fries' w/Allspice 'n Chipotle Chili Sauce


And, maybe a burger or: A Maple-Glazed Ham Slice, that goes from stovetop to TV tray in 6 minutes:


Enjoy the game my foodie friends and don't hit the punchbowl too hard if your favorite team doesn't win!
