Food-wise, we don't do a lot for SB Sunday, regardless of who's playing. It will probably be a Chili and Beer night.

But...what KIND of chili.....or beer? Details wanted!

Rumakiiiiii---that's what has my mouth watering and it's only 7:00 in the morning!!!

rumaki is bacon-wrapped chicken livers/water chestnuts, variously marinated in soy and terrriaki sauces, ginger paste. bacon slathered with dijon mustard, brown sugar....there are a gazillion recipes for these rumaki online. and these days, anything wrapped in bacon and secured with a toothpick can pass for rumaki. like scallops, of course. but reading about the chicken livers this morning really got my taste buds dancing, add Bacon and wc crunch to that, and i can scarcely wait for superbowl sunday to get here...(go ravens).

I'll be having the usual 3-4 different kinds of crackers and cheeses. Some sliced pepperoni when I really feel like stacking the cracker, probably Triscuit, Swiss and pepperoni nuked until warm... The usual hot dip; Layers of cream cheese, Hormel's chili W/O beans, cheddar cheese and jalapenos nuked until melted and served with Tostitos... I think I'll make a big pot of chili Sunday, too, but I'm not sure I will have any. Well, probably a *small* cup I may even try my hand at that spinach dip that is served in the bread. I'm sure that would be OK with crackeres.

the above sketchily-described rumaki, was meant only as a suggestion, possibly to be googled by you if bacon and chicken livers grab your interest as they did mine early this morn. i only wanted to add that making rumaki is a big job, though reportedly worth the time and trouble.
here is a truly quick and easy hors doeuvres (sp?) on a toothpick--with or without crackers: slices of smoked sausage (polish is fine), chunks of crispy tart-sweet apple, and chunks of cheddar, swiss or other solid cheese. no muss no fuss, simply spear and eat...(mmm, go great with football)

I think I've settled on making Chicken-Sausage gumbo and mini-Po'Boys for Superbowl Sunday. Banana Pudding for dessert.

It just sounds right.

Yea. Menus are starting to look good. So far we are shaping up to have --

devilled eggs
chicken wings - probably baked, the way the weather is here,
Urban Onion dip, like ranch, w/ dill & beau monde seasoning.
sloppy joes - Jr's request
some kind of chip called "scoopers", again Jr's req, he must like dip
Ghiradelli brownie mix
not sure the name, pickle in the middle, slather deli ham or salami slices w/ cream cheese and wrap around a pickle. Chill, slice, eat.
Ro-tel/ queso dip, SIL bringing...

More, but others are bringing.

Not sure when the food vs the game begins, sooner than later I hope
