Well, it's here! For our non-US residents, it's the "big" day for gridiron football. This year's Super Bowl is in Tampa, and features the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals. (Gooooooo, Cardies! :D :D ). Neither of which is "our" team, but what the heck!
One of the things that has evolved out of the "game" is a Super Bowl Party. Some folks have them at home, some folks attend them at local pubs/bars, ect.
We are staying home (real surprise there,eh) and will have our own party for two. :D I'm not a huge football fan, but Herself is and has been since a young kid.
I do the party bit. :D :D
So! We will be having for our Super Bowl Party:
A small selection of French Cheese and Irish Cashel Bleu
A small selection of Olives (French, Moroccan, and Spanish)
A small selection of three cured meats (two artisinal salami types, and a bit of prosciutto)
Whole wheat naan, and whole wheat soft tortilla (to replace the dangerous bread!)
Broiled lobster tail (Hey! They were on sale)! :D
Chicken breast "tenders" done in a "Buffalo style" to keep with the "tradition" of Super Bowl...
A small pate (mixed)
Pistachio nuts for crunch... (to replace the chips and pretzels of more traditional gatherings).
A particular blanc de blanc that I love...
The menu changed and evolved throughout the days leading up to the game. At one time I was going to do individual Beef Wellingtons but switched to a more seafood based theme...
So! What are you doing? Anything? Are you having a party, if only for yourselves?
