Super Bowl Success

I know it’s been a week since the Big Game, but we had so much fun at our viewing party and had so many delicious foods that I just had to share. What started out as inviting a few friends over to watch the game on our new 60″ TV turned into 15 people, too much food and whiskey pickle-back shots. Oops. I never would have guessed that we could fit that many people in our apartment! Needless to say, we had a blast.

I spent much of the morning preparing treats and finger foods … after having planned my Super Bowl menu weeks in advance. My buffalo dip was the only real request, but I took advantage of the day and made all sorts of favorites and firsts, buffalo dip included.

???????????????????????????????

A few firsts included buffalo chicken pinwheels and cream cheese and asparagus pinwheels. My mom makes the asparagus pinwheels at all family get-togethers and they are the first to go. Cream cheese spread on a flour tortilla, canned asparagus and shaved ham, rolled into a tight wrap and sliced. So simple and so delicious.

I pulled the buffalo chicken pinwheels from a recipe I found on Pinterest and they were just as wonderful and I’d hope they would be.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I was very much looking forward to catered sandwiches from Firehouse Subs.

???????????????????????????????However, Jimmy was majorly craving their Italian, so I picked up a cold large Italian when I picked up my tray, sliced it into four pieces, and made Jimmy’s day.

And of course, I couldn’t leave out the desserts! Lemon bars, mini blueberry white chocolate cheesecakes …

… and a Ravens/Niners-colored Red Velvet cake. Yum!
