Are You Ready for Some Football?

football-party-mason-jarsIt’s the North against the South. Ok…not really, but the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcolns will be facing off this Sunday to see who takes home the Super Bowl trohpy. I’m indifferent to who wins because my hometown team (the Dallas Cowboys) didn’t make it this year. However, I’m not indifferent, to a good time on Superbowl Sunday!

Super Weekend

Whether you really like the game of football, the awesome ads, halftime entertainment or the snacks….chances are you’ll be watching the Super Bowl this weekend! So, I’ve gathered some of my favorite EASY party elements.

 7 layer dip is a classic…but after the first scoop, it starts to look like a mess. Individual portions keep things looking and tasting good. And, it’s built in portion control! Recipe here.

But, it’s not really the Super Bowl that is going to make this a Super Weekend. My oldest son is turning 13 on Sunday and so that basically trumps both the Seahawks and the Patriots. And, instead of a birthday cake he has requested dark chocolate dipped strawberries. So, these caught my eye. 

May the balls be fully inflated and the best team win. I’ll be trying to figure out how to score as the mom of a teenage boy!

Have a SUPER weekend!
