Superbowl Party

Of course Superbowl is just an excuse to get together for our family. We do like watching the commercials, but I was disappointed in them last night. I really didn't have a favorite team, but everyone else was cheering for the Packers, so I did too. We are trying to eat healthier, but game day foods just aren't too healthy. We love hot wings, and I decided we would make our own. I placed them on a nonstick sprayed cookie sheet and baked them for 30 minutes on each side at 375 degrees, and then we crisped them up for just a minute under the broiler. Then we tossed them in a honey BBQ
sauce and a traditional hot wing sauce made with Franks hot sause. The were really good...and a little healthier than those fried ones.
I made a pot of chili, too...
The boys got to drink from special football cups. I had them from Christmas (from Dollar Tree). They had a Santa design inside, so I put our football napkins in the copier, and cut a template to cover up the Santa design.

Some football decorations...

Shawn brought chips and dip, which we scarfed down before dinner
was ready.

I think Jackson was licking the bowl clean ,here.
Hot wings ready...and somebody's plate...

Shannon made some delicious chocolate peanut butter cupcakes.

Hudson will attest to the deliciousness...


Fun times.

Yum! Looks like you had a lot of good eats - chili and wings! I am not a football fan, but it does not bother me if people around me are watching the game. The game was on and I watched some of the commercials. Some cute - some I did not care for. I won't even make a statement about what happened over the National Anthem. :(
Can you believe we are in for another round tomorrow evening into Wed.?
Bring on Spring!

Yummy! Wish I could have been there. We don't have TV and I don't usually miss it except for special events like this.

I love the rooster in your header! One of my largest collections is made up of vintage ceramic roosters. Your fellow is a particularly fine specimen!

Thanks so much for stopping by my new blog, becoming a follower, and leaving such a nice comment!
