bowls of super

Let me start off by saying, that I'm....not exactly the most avid of football fans.
Let's also say, that I walked into the Super Bowl party completely unaware of who was even playing.
(Although upon arrival I was swindeled into rooting for the Giants!)
This is my one flaw (from my husband's perspective, I'm sure) and I've always been okay with it.
Because despite my lack of football know-how, Super Bowl parties are always a blast!!

Great food, great people, great energy.
We've surrounded ourselves with pretty awesome people out here, and opportunities like the Super Bowl provide a casual atmosphere to get really fat and really happy. (We even sang a little!)
The party was hosted by the beautiful and talented couple, Chris and Heather :)
It's been really fun getting to know them, and we love their apartment! (wink!)

My contributions for the evening spread (It was so weird watching the Super Bowl so late! It started at 6:30pm!) (am I using too many parentheses in this post?) were mini pizza puffs and mini corn dog muffins! Although I must say, the dessert was the highlight of the evening. Oh, and the cheese with the jelly. I'll get to that.
Our spread:

Wings are a MUST HAVE at a Super Bowl Party

Pizza Puffs - totally yummy, with Marinara to dip them in!

Corn Dog Muffins - a pretty great, ridiculously easy idea :)

THE CHEESE. (and crackers). Advice: take cracker, take cheese, take jelly, and consume.
This spicy jelly was SUCH a delicious component to this platter of goodness.

Wings, round 2 -- reheated and refreshed with the mouth-watering sauce.

Chocolate chip cookie dough dip.
Chocolate...chip cooke DOUGH, DIP.
One of our friends is pretty much a culinary genius. The last time we were all together for a game night, she whipped up a delicious, moist chocolate cake (that included a cup of coffee in the recipe, which was an added bonus), and this time, she just bamboozled us with this delightful treat. Animal crackers? And chocolate chip cookie dough DIP? I still can't get over it. I'm pretty upset that I haven't been eating this my whole life. What a concept!

Goofs :)

Our friends are the greatest part of being out here. As shy and awkward as I am, Dusty has always been the more outgoing of the two of us. And my usually slow and steady process of making friends has been revolutionized by the law wife group out here, as well as just simply being married to Dusty!
We had a great time with these peeps. And we look forward to other fun events!

Happy Super Bowl!
In love,


  1. LOVE THIS! We are so glad to have some awesome new friends like you and Dusty =]

  2. Have to agree with you on the cookie dough dip thing. I am coming soon.

  3. Wow! That is a great idea! Cookie dough is one of the best things on the planet. I also have the lack of love for football...but I don't think it's a flaw. So you're still flawless. ;)

  4. First off, I am sad that you were pulling for the Giants.

    And Secondly, I NEED to eat that cookie dough dip. LIKE NOW.
