So, this Sunday – Super Bowl Sunday – is my birthday. Seriously – this is like the third time this has happened since the NFL switched the game from the last weekend in January to the first weekend in February. Kinda moves my celebration to the sidelines, if you know what I mean. And seeing how I’m living single these days, it’s going to prove to be even more depressing.
Luckily I’m going to Randy Loren’s La Dolce Vita in Schenectady tonight* (and dinner tomorrow night with friends at The Standard), so I will be getting some partying in.
Anyway, for those of you actually doing some celebrating for the Super Bowl, perhaps you’re looking for some nifty goodies to snack on while watching those large stinky sweaty men give each other concussions.
Here are some links – do with them what you will.
- Don’t eat these. They were bad. Like I’m surprised. Even Anderson Cooper wouldn’t try it.
- Here’s my very own Veggie Quinoa Chili recipe, which I contributed to From Scratch Club (oh, hey, I’m a regular contributor over there, too. Check out my stuff).
- Healthy Nachos, anyone?
- Why bother with healthy?
- Thank goodness – there’s no chicken wing shortage!
Happy Harbowl everyone! Don’t get sick.
*Which I plan on live blogging, because it’s going to be…something, if their website is any indication. A Vegas-style showroom. We’re going for a “dinner dance”. It was not my idea.
Yuck on the cupcakes. Have a wonderful birthday!
Enjoy your birthday! I read about those cupcakes and can’t believe they’d make the same stupid mistake 2 years in a row, and extend it to other creations. A refrigerated wing will lose all of its appeal. Refrigerated chips or pretzels will get soggy. This is food 101, and they failed 2 years in a row.
You’re right – those chips and pretzels should be added a la minute. And really…aren’t those things “muffins” at this point?
