Super Bowl Sunday

We're having a Super Bowl Party on Sunday. How about you? Are you planning something for friends and family?

We've always been a family that enjoyed holidays and celebrations and the Super Bowl is no exception. Any excuse to have a party is alright by me!!!

I'm planning the menu which will consist of easy to serve foods. Today I'll do the shopping and tomorrow will find me baking homemade brownies (frosted, of course) from an old recipe that I've used for years.

So far, the menu goes like this:

BBQ Ribs
Sloppy Joes
Buffalo Wings
Baked Beans
Potato Salad
Veggie Tray
Fruit Tray
Chips and a variety of dips
Frosted Brownies
Beer
Wine
Pop
Iced Tea
(and more, as I think of it)

***Are you planning a party or will Sunday be a quiet day at your house?

The Super Bowl is Sunday? ;) We don't pay much attention to football at our house.

Your menu sounds fabulous! What time should I be there? :)

Have a great weekend, Barbara.

Barbara said...

Janna- I love family parties and traditions, so it's going to be a great day for me! Enjoy your Sunday, too. Blessings.

Chocolate Covered Daydreams said...

I will watch it but Boo has to work so it will be a party of one!

Barbara said...

Daydreams- Hey, a party of one can be fun, too. Just kick back and relax all day! Blessings always.

Jill said...

I'm not sure if we will be watching the Super Bowl or not...now if the Philadelphia Eagles would have made it to the Super Bowl...
We would definitely be watching the game!

Kathryn Magendie said...

Oh! Food galore!

Barbara said...

Jill- I hear what you're saying. If my Colts were going to play, I would be super excited!!

Barbara said...

Kathryn- I gained 3 or 4 lbs. at Christmas, so this could be bad!!!LOL

Pat's Place said...

Several of us usually gather for dinner Sunday evening, so I suspect we will take a gander at the game from time to time, but not really devoted to either team this year.

Sounds great! My sister-in-law is handling all the food this year~ Years past I always did fun munchies and sandwiches and such...but I believe she is completely breaking tradition and making a big dinner. She is a great cook so we are rejoicing~ Hope you have a great day with the family!
Blessings,
Vikki

Barbara said...

Pat- Our favorite team playing, makes a big difference in whether we watch with interest. Enjoy the dinner!

Barbara said...

Vikki G- Thanks and you, too!!

No party planned, but for sure I'll be cheering our very own Arizona Cardinals! Woohoo!!

Go Kurt Warner!

P.S. Hubby and I lived about 25 miles West of Phoenix. As you can imagine, ALL of Arizona is abuzz.

Barbara said...

Sassy Granny- How exciting for you!!! Good luck.

Terri Tiffany said...

Pop? sounds like you are from up north where I lived!
My husband bought his dip and chips for Sunday--but not me!

Barbara said...

Terri- I was raised in Tennessee and now live in the Northwest.

I did most of my shopping today, so we are just about ready to "party"!!!!!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Men will gather at my house while the writer women will be at my SIL's. But I'd love a doggy bag from your soiree!

Joanne said...

If I lived a few states closer, I'd be planning to crash your party! Wow, what a Super Fest you're having. Small celebration here, a few munchies and such.

Barbara said...

Angie- Your day with friends sounds like fun.

Barbara said...

Joanne- Can't wait. It's going to be great.

jinksy said...

My English sense of humour can't cope with Buffalo Wings! ( maniacal laughter fades into the wide blue yonder)

Debra said...

Your menu sounds fantastic...what time is the gathering? lol

Happy Saturday to you!

Barbara said...

Jinksy- I could never understand it either.

Barbara said...

Debra- thank you!

Pamela said...

yes. friends are coming by - as most of our family lives so far away.

I think we're going to bbq chicken.

My word verification is: inhot
so.. I'm going to take that to mean that it's going to be a spicy bbq
