    Default Superbowl Sunday Plans & Recipes

    What'cha got goin' on this Sunday? Do you host or do you attend somewhere else? Do you watch TV on Sunday or are you a no TV on Sunday kinda person?

    We never host. If we do anything at all, we go to someone else's house for their party. Often we do nothing. I don't really care that much about the Superbowl game itself, although last year the game was pretty cool.

    I definitely watch Lakers games on Sundays, but don't really watch the NFL because I don't follow it religiously like others here enjoy doing.

    Our ward just switched to 9AM, so we have the entire afternoon open, which is nice. I have to do some home teaching, but we are off to friend's house at about 3PM. Should be fun....about 7 or 8 families from the ward plus kids, decent sized house so enough room for everyone. Weather should be nice, as well.

    We are assigned to bring "snacks." That is very broad, so I am thinking of skipping the bagged chips (someone else will bring that, I am sure) and bringing homemade dip (bean dip, queso, etc).

    Anyone have good suggestions for "snacks?" or a good dip recipe?

    I also love date rumake, so I may bring some of that and blow everyone's minds with the fruity deliciousness.

    We usually get together with friends as well but I never have a good time because I actually want to sit down and watch the game and I hate breaking the sabbath. So I will buy a few papa murphys take and bake pizzas Saturday night and cook them up sunday after midnight. I dont watch TV on Sunday so I will TIVO the game and watch it at midnight.

    Go for the rumake. I fill the dates with ricotta (a make-shift piping bag made from a Ziploc bag works great for this) and wrap them in bacon. Yum!

    Seriously...

    This is the blog that Surfah (I think) recommended a while ago on CG. These girls do a great job--everything I've tried on here has been really, really good.

    No TV on Sunday for me, except SB Sunday. For the most part, like you, I couldn't care less about the game itself, but Mrs SMR likes the social aspect of the Super Bowl get togethers (can't really call them parties), etc, hence the reason we make the exception.

    I saw it on FN once, and decided to give it a try. It was a hit. Just work the pit out with a skewer and fill the void with creamy goodness. Wrap in thick bacon and bake in a piping hot oven (450) for about 15 mins.

    you can buy the pre-pitted, so I am one step ahead of you.

    I am all over the ricotta. I use ricotta to stuff jalepenos (poppers), but hadn't thoought of it for dates.

    I dont doubt it will be a hit. thanks.

    We host a small group 10-15 people every year. In the past I have deep fried a turkey, or grilled ribs. This week there was an interesting chicken wing recipe in the paper that included Sriracha sauce that I love so much. I will probably make those.

    I am also thinking of making some or DDD's butterscotch pudding, as I love butterscotch and if I am going to blow the NutriSystem for a day I might as well enjoy it.

    I would use real scotch, I am not sure if in Eugene I can find Guittard what happens if I just use another butterscotch chip? Will my kitchen catch on fire?

    Saturday is a special day, its the day I get ready to watch TV on Sundays.

    We usually host the Superbowl. The last 3 years I have bought fresh ingredients to make very delicious sandwiches. This year it Includes

    hoagie rolls from Shirley's
    Fresh cooked thick slice bacon
    Avocados
    Mayo, Mustard, Olive oil, vinegar
    Olives
    Sprouts
    Chicken Breast, Cooked and sliced
    Turkey
    Small Honeybaked ham
    Salomi
    Roast Beef
    4-5 types of cheese
    Claussen Dill Pickles
    Onions
    Tomatoes
    Bell Peppers
    Jalapenos
    Green Leaf Lettuce


    Some chips and dips and then request the guest to bring a dessert of choice.

    I did the Sammies the first year when I was not planning on doing anything but at the last minute had a change of plans. The guests enjoyed them so much, it has been requested the last couple of years, so we continue to do it.

    I love Shirley's rolls. Thankfully, they've become a book club staple each month so I don't have to be too disappointed there's no SLC franchise.

    Mayo, Mustard, Olive oil, vinegar
    Brown mustard, I hope.

    you can use another chip, but wont be as good. will still be very good overall, but not as silky smooth. i say go for it anyway. good excuse to ingest scotch.

    Racist. I, too, love brown mustard, but there are some things that go best with the yellow stuff.

    We always have hoagie sandwiches for Christmas day, this year my wife bought me some Harvest Ground mustard that is fantastic. Adds a nice texture and has a much stronger mustardy taste. Highly recommended.

    For those of you in Utah, you should try the football-shaped sugar cookies at Schmidts.

    Let me clarify here, that deli sandwiches are not one of the things on which I prefer to use yellow mustard. Hot dogs, however, call for a squirt of the yellow.

    Driving up to Teton Springs for a little buffet put on by the resort up there. Of course this will all be done after church is over.

    We typically go to my BIL's house for a party, but this year we'll be watching at home. My wife claims my behavior during Steelers games is not socially acceptable.

    I suggest making hot dogs. I'd jazz them up a bit. Maybe wrap them in bacon, add grilled onions, peppers, jalapenos, tomato, pickle, fried egg and some melted cheese.
