If you were/are a Denver fan, I am sorry. Seattle has kind of run away with the Super Bowl. Regardless of the outcome, I still enjoyed the cleverness of some of the commercials (seriously, Tim Tebow??) and I enjoyed the food we had this evening. Tonight’s Sunday supper was a Super Bowl party. If I was a good blogger, I would have shared all of this long before the actual party so that you would have ideas to use. (But how do people do that ahead of time…do they do the party twice…once ahead of time for the blog and then again for the real deal??) Oh well, perhaps there is an idea here you can save for next year. 🙂
When we do a buffet style dinner, I like to go ahead and set the table ahead of time so that I know which dishes will be used and where they will go. Post-it notes to the rescue. 🙂 You can see that I used the Pinterest table cover idea of craft paper lined off with white duct tape.
I used the ever useful jars for all the baked potato toppings.
Instead of going with team colors for either of the teams, I opted for black and white for the refs. 🙂 (It is safer to just stay neutral.) The disposable metal utensils (love them!) were tied up with black ribbon, and the black and white striped napkins came from Target.
And here is everything with all the food on the table (thanks to our middle son who was a tremendous help preparing it all today!)
Everyone just served from the table and ate wherever they wanted. We set up the beverage table in the family room to make it easy for refills. I made a runner for that table out of some old chalkboard fabric. (At least that is what the company I ordered it from called it.)
Here is my plate where I ate at the coffee table in the family room.
Yes, I loaded up that baked potato! Yum. Oh, I think I am supposed to share a recipe with you when I do a Sunday Supper post, right? Well all of this was very easy to prepare. About the only recipe I could share with you would be how we make our wings:
We use a 4 lb. package of frozen wings. Fry them (not bake them) until they are crisp. Drain them on a paper towel lined plate. Melt one stick of butter in a large casserole dish in the microwave. Mix a 12 oz. bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce (the original version) in the melted butter. Then put the wings (yes, the ones you just fried) in the sauce and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees. That’s it. They don’t last long around here.
Hope you enjoyed the game …or at least the commercials. You can watch the cutest one by clicking here.
I am off to refill my plate with more snacks. Did you do anything special for the Super Bowl?
We’d love to hear about it!
