Superbowl Menu

Posted by Laura on Monday Feb 8, 2010 Under Appetizers, Vittles

We had a nice little Superbowl Sunday.  We kept it pretty low-key, for a couple of reasons:

1) Our own New England Patriot’s weren’t playing.

2) It was a school night.

Every year, I get all excited about Superbowl Sunday, no matter who is playing. And then I realize how late the game is starting!  And then I remember, that I forget that that is the case, almost every year!

Still, we can’t let the opportunity for a little private family party, pass us by.  But considering the circumstances this year, we kept the menu simple-simple.
