As guests arrived they were greeted by our football field. Don't look at the grass, it needs work ;)
I got the idea from the Temple Wildcat Football blog. I used flour to make the yard lines.
This isn't half of the food we had. For the back drop I used a Dollar Tree table cloth and made my play's with window paint . The idea came from Polka Dot Playbook. The wings on the table were made by sprinkling Lawry's Seasoning Salt on them and broiling.
We had 2 other kinds of wings, pizza, cookies, cupcakes, salsa, chips, guacamole, deviled eggs, did I forget anything? The recipe for the wings I made is found on Jujugoodnews
This guacamole recipe is from Rick Bayless. We were watching t.v. the night before the game and flipped to Rick Bayless making this guacamole. Well the pre-made stuff I had bought just wouldn't do after seeing this recipe. So tasty. The peppers give a nice kick and the sundried tomatoes add wonderful flavor.
Football cookies worked double duty this weekend. I took a batch to a house warming I went to the Saturday before the big game. Idea for the cookies from Munchkin Munchies . With the Superbowl being played in New Orleans I added some Mardi Gras touches.
I had to make cupcakes! A party just isn't complete without them! Red velvet with golden yellow frosting for the 49ers.
And grape cake with purple frosting for the Ravens. The grape cupcake recipe came from The Baking Robot Robot. A wonderful little blog full of sweets.
I ate so much food on Superbowl Sunday that I was in a food coma for the rest of the night. It was all so good I couldn't stop ha ha.
Did your team win? Did you over eat? Leave me a comment and let me know.
I always enjoy connecting with you all :)
