Super Bowl Sunday Finger Food Recap


It’s Super Bowl Sunday.  And today I’ll most likely be watching with misty eyes…not because of the teams playing, but because I’m proud of my home town for throwing down and hosting one of the best Super Bowl parties to date.  My brother-in-law’s limousine company is booked solid to drive party-goers (and hopefully some celebrities around)-even having to borrow vehicles from family members.  Local artists and graphic designers are featured in the downtown designs.  My radio host friend is interviewing celebrities left and right on the red carpets of all the velvet-roped parties.  Friends back home are posting on Facebook which random celebrities they ran into downtown in “Super Bowl Village” during the past few days.  Oh, Indianapolis.  I love you and miss you to pieces.   Even though I’m over a thousand miles away now, you’ve made this Midwestern girl proud.

Instead of a new post today, I figured I could give a quick recap of some easy to make and quick appetizers in case you still want to whip something up before 6:29pm tonight.  Is it still ok for me to say, “Go Colts?”

Ann P. - 🙂 Looks like you had an awesome Superbowl Sunday! I feel your pain, b/c I wish my Niners had made it, too. Niners vs. Colts would have been an awesome super bowl to watch! Anyway, as a result of my lack of enthusiasm, i literally missed the whole thing. Didn’t even catch one commercial! BUT I DID EAT SOME KALE CHIPS for the first time, which were amazing, and now I have to make your Cajun ones!!
