It's PARTY TIME. The big game is next week, time to make a plan and stock the fridge. Fire up that crock pot, oven, and grill—time to pig out.
Special shout out to our old city, Kansas City (50 yrs ago), and Philidelphia, where my son lives. Have a great safe game, and congratulations to both teams.
After Thanksgiving, big game day is considered the second most important "food holiday." Food is an essential part of any watch party—big or small.
I almost always enjoy the game—but is 7 hours of pregame programming needed? We will be enjoying the puppy bowl part of that time.
OK, I'm off task; back to the food. Let's divide the recommendations into four classes, finger foods, chili, main courses, and sweets/smacks.
🖐️Finger Food Recipes
If you are hosting a party, finger foods are great for watching the game and munching. Here are some of my best.
To me, the watch party must have chili. You can check all my chili recipes in my chili category. But here are some of my favorites.
🥘Main Course Recipes
Maybe you are having more of a dinner. Here are some classics in all three food groups: beef, pork, and chicken.
No party or dinner is complete without something sweet. Give them something great to talk about that you can make ahead.
Don't forget food safety and the dog treats
Check out some food safety tips at Summer Food Safety.
Have a great watch party.
