I go over to a friend's house. We have not decided on a theme for this year. Last year it was Cajun food. So, I bought my jambalaya.

The other day I saw a recipe for Glazed BBQ Meatballs that looked guy friendly.

we will have a few people over .. and we do a tv in the living room
for the people that want to watch the game ..
and a tv in the kids playroom for those that like to talk about commercials
and what not ..
as far as the menu .. we usually get a couple itialian loaves and make giant subs ..
then slice into finger food sized pieces ..
i will probably smoke a pork butt ..
someone will bring chili ..
last year we went upscale .. all wine .. all nice finger foods .. cheese fruit etc..
one thing that is for sure .. there will be at least two bushels of oysters ..
a friend brings them every year .. we are trying to get some Lynnhavens since they started harvesting again this year ..

We have hosted a party the last several years with the same menu every year ...

Chili Dogs
Sweet and Sour Wings
BBQ Meatballs
Stuffed Mushrooms
Cheese and Venison Sausage
Veggies with Dip

I'll start next weekend making the wings and chili and freezing them. People tend to bring something to contribute.

Would have been nice if it were my Packers ... maybe next year. It will still be a good evening!

I always enjoy the superbowl , because if I am hosting or going to a party elsewhere I
always have a great time no matter what teams are playing. we have always great food
great friends, great times. I always like to record the new commercials each year. this
year I think I am going over to my brother`s house for superbowl sunday, his two sons
and four grandsons will be there, so it will be a great atmosphere.

We are watching the game but we aren't having a party and we weren't invited anywhere. I think I'm going to try a homemade Chicago style deep dish pizza and have some other snacky type appetizers too.

My answer isn't "represented"
I don't go out anymore and I don't host parties anymore. I'm too much into football and it is the last game of the season.... the memory will have to carry me until the April draft.
Well, that and the NFL Network

I'm with you, TATT - go Eli!

dh will be grilling tri tips outdoors (unless this storm continues).
And along with the steak will be my pico de gallo, tortilla chips & fresh guacamole, big green salad, a cheese plate (we never host a party without a large quantity of cheese), a veggie plate, a few assorted desserts and beverages for all.

I agree, its bittersweet- I love the Superbowl no matter whose playing, but it reminds me of the months of waiting until the draft.

I always make my barbecued beef stew topped with cheddar cornbread pudding. And then I have friends bring appetizers, one friend always brings cocktail weiners with spicy mustard and sliced stromboli.

Oh well, back to my diet on the 4th I guess.

Oh, and Go Giants!
Finally reached my goal weight- 120 lbs- & never going back!
