My love for football is great but the Super Bowl can be a long game if your team is not playing. The Philadelphia Eagles have not been to the big game for 7 years. In that time, I have usually watched the second half. The first half and a few hours prior are spend preparing delicious eats for friends and family. Yesterday did not disappoint. Here are but some of the culinary delights we enjoyed:
sage pork tenderloin
hot habanero hot wings
quinoa with onions and parsley
tomatoes with fresh mozzarella, basil, and homemade italian dressing
red pepper hummus dip
guacamole (my nephew tells me that 70% of the guacamole eaten in America is on Super Bowl Sunday)
I was careful to fill my plate with small portions of each dish so that I could return many times. It was difficult to make it back for even a second plate; I was stuffed.
Whether your team won, lost, or even played, I hope that the culinary bowl at your home was delightful.
