I'm making a list and checking it twice......no, not that kind of list! Its February and on February 6th, the clock will strike for Superbowl Sunday!
And we've been seeing ideas for Superbowl food everywhere, from Guy Fieri's Tailgate Warriors on the Food Network to Pioneer Woman to Tidy Mom to the ever growing list of great food blogs.
Since football is a family affair here, we have to make sure that we have GFCF (gluten & casein, protein in dairy, free) options for our kidlet. And I've spied a few options for this year!
First, while Hubs was sick last weekend, he was mindlessly watching the Food Network as he fell in and out of sleep. He perked up when he saw Melissa D'Arabian making (spicy) kettle corn. While he wasn't interested in the spicy part, he was interested in the 'kettle' part. He made it the other night & now the kidlets are requesting it for Superbowl munchies and its being added to the list!
He pops popcorn for the kidlets every week for movie night and liked making it a little differently. Speaking of different, have you ever popped popcorn & used ghee instead of butter on it? Ghee is butter with the water & solids removed (making it casein free) or basically, ultra clarified butter. And it is SO good on popcorn. The popcorn stays crisp, not wet, stays fresh longer and did I mention its Really good?! So good that friends often request it....they call it crack corn, 'cause they just can't get enough! lol
Then I saw Pioneer Woman's Beef Fajita Nachos and by substituting Daiya vegan cheese on my boy's plate, the recipe is a go for us, and is being added to the list. And since we're on P-Dub's site, I also spy her Shrimpo de Gallo, which looks delish and no substitutions necessary, so onto the list it goes as well!
Are you watching the Big Game on Sunday? What's on your Superbowl tailgate food list? If you're not into the Superbowl, what's your favorite party food? Any cocktails you recommend?
And of course, since we're talking the NFL Superbowl XLV here, I've gotta ask, Green Bay Packers or Pittsburgh Steelers??? Since The Bus' retirement, we're not fans of the Steelers here, so we'll be cheering on the Packers, loudly, I might add! :>
