Two Super Bowl Menus. One Lesson Learned.

I was told that since I am now a resident of New England, I am required to be a fan of the Sox, the Pats, and the Celtics.


Given that the Patriots are playing in the Super Bowl this weekend, I figured I should develop a menu which proves my allegiance. Thought it should have an appropriate color scheme and use signature New England ingredients like cranberries, maple syrup, clams, and blueberries.

Here's what I came up with.
Patriotic Chips and North Shore Clam Dip
Red, White and Blue Nachos

Cranberry Glazed Bacon Jalapeno Bites
Mini Ballpark Dogs

Blueberry, Blackberry, and Strawberry Skewers with MapleNilla Sauce
Nantucket Cranberry Pie

Believe it or not, I even considered forcing in some baked beans and brown bread, in the form of a finger sandwich.

And then I realized: No. Just No.

Issues of this great an import need to be left to the experts.

So this is what I'll be serving on Sunday:
  • Buffalo Chicken Wings
  • Helluva Good French Onion Dip with wavy potato chips
  • Some sort of frozen bread pocket appetizer thingy that's supposed to taste like potato skins
  • Red, White, and Blue Nachos (These are apparently standard enough to stay on the list.)
  • Mini hot dogs in grape jelly and barbecue sauce
  • Veggies and dip (as a nod to actual nutrition)
I think even Tebow would approve of the change. Hopefully he prayed for me.


  1. perfect superbowl food!
    I couldn't have done better myself!
