The reason I like the Super Bowl is that I get to plan out some cool food. The past few years, I've been doing a theme for the food. This year, I thought it would be fun to do a hunky theme since the Steelers were playing. And, since I'm a little hunky (and have the family recipes to back it up), I felt that this would be more than appropriate for the evening.
So, we had kielbasa (two kinds!), hot dogs, sauerkraut and home-made pierogies. There was also chips and dip, some Buffalo chicken dip (while not exactly fitting the theme, it does seem to be a Western Pennsylvania staple), tortilla chips, salsa, nuts, and chocolate chip cookies (I think that's everything). Brian's parents brought wings and a dip for tortilla chips. Needless to say, there was too much food (it was just us, the in-laws and Brian's friend, Shawn). I tend to overdo it when I make food for a group. But, at least we won't go hungry this week at lunch.
Oh yeah, there was a game, too. The game was way closer than I would have liked, but the Steelers pulled out a win at the end and made it all worthwhile. The only bad thing about the evening is that they're showing a new hour long episode of The Office and it won't be over until 11:30, but I have to go to bed now or I'm never going to be able to get up for work tomorrow.
