It’s the 50th Anniversary of the Super Bowl this Sunday and I couldn’t be more excited to watch the Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos. Have you decided on who you are cheering for this weekend? Will you be cheering for Payton Manning and the Denver Broncos?
Or will you be rooting for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers?
Me? I’m cheering for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. I’ve never been a Denver Broncos fan and I’ve certainly never cheered for Payton Manning. Carolina on the other hand has had an incredible season and have never been to the Super Bowl. Carolina has to be my pick.
This year my Father-in-law’s Birthday falls on Super Bowl Sunday and I’m hosting a big Birthday Super Bowl bash. Ironically, last time his birthday fell on Super Bowl Sunday it was Super Bowl 44 and it was Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints vs. Payton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts…. Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints won, but that’s not the only similarity between Super Bowl 44 and Super Bowl 50. In Super Bowl 44 the British band “The Who” took center stage for the halftime show… This year it’s the British band Coldplay. Both times Payton Manning has play for teams named after a Horse…. Could this be a sign for things to come for Payton Manning again?!?! We shall just have to wait and see!
I love doing “themed” Super Bowl parties serving a food that’s popular from both teams home cities/States. Last year I served up SUPER Bowls of “Seattle” Style Salmon Chowder. This year I’m going with a “Southern” theme and serving up some tasty Carolina pulled pork sliders, Spicy Pulled Pork Jalapeño Poppers, and for Denver some tasty “Mile High” Cupcakes…. Ok they are just a variety of chocolate cupcakes but can you honestly tell me some kind of food Denver is known for?
While I’m preparing for making food this week I thought it would be fun to share with all of you some of my favorite Football Party Foods.
For those of you who love the flavor of Buffalo Hot Wings but despised Chicken on the Bone these are perfect for you.
These are a perfect way to serve homemade Pizza to a crowd.
You can never go wrong with football and Texas Chili 🙂
If you love spice but are not a fan of the pungent bite of traditional hot wings these Smokin’ Chipotle Lime Chicken Wings will become your new favorite!
Need I say more?
A jalapeño pepper stuffed with spicy pulled pork, oozing with cheese, and wrapped in bacon. YUM!
