Superbowl Sunday

Every year, we go to the home of one of our families in our small group for the Superbowl.

I wasn’t really rooting for any one team this year.  Although, I had some friends who are 49ers fans.  It was still a fun game.  I actually enjoy watching football if it’s on, but not enough to actually follow teams.  I guess if I were to have a team it would be the Saints, since I grew up in New Orleans.

Speaking of which, I loved seeing the Superdome on the screen last night.  It made me all nostalgic.  I went there on my 13th birthday to the world premiere of Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame.  We said that the parade, pre-show and movie were all done in my honor, with 20,000 guests at my party.  🙂  Hey, you only turn 13 once, right?

Anyway, back to the game.  Well, really the two reasons I love going to the Superbowl party are the commercials and the food.  I thought Taco Bell made an interesting twist by putting everything in Spanish.  I have to say, the Clydesdale horse story pulled tightest on my heart strings.

And as far as the food, I brought my cookie dough dip again since it was a hit the year before.  I thought I shared the recipe for this last year, but looking back it seems I didn’t.  It’s from Add a Pinch, but I made a few learning notes when making the recipe, so here it is.

Ingredients
  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips which I thought complemented the toffee bits better)
  • 1 cup toffee bits
Instructions
  1. Cream together cream cheese and butter. (I took the cream cheese out about two or three hours before I made it, so it was soft and easy to combine.  I also put the butter in the microwave for 30 seconds so it was soft and a little melted).
  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix until well-combined.
  3. Serve with graham crackers or apple wedges.

Did you root for a team?  What was your favorite commercial?

    • Yes, I tried to stay away from the food for as long as possible! I did sample a little bit of each, but only took one round at the table. It was all SO good! 🙂

    • It definitely was. I brought the leftovers home, and after it is in the fridge overnight, it firms up and becomes this yummy cookie dough butter consistency. Kind of like icing for my graham crackers. It’s amazing. 🙂
