    I am just curious as to what everyone is having to eat on Sunday for the big game? We are making:

    Teriyaki Chicken Wings
    Pizza Bites
    Veggie Tray with Dip, Crackers and Cheese
    Mini Burgers and homemade Onion Rings
    Football cupcakes

    Lots of Beer (DH and myself) and wine for the parents, also making Margaritas! :)

    What are you having?

    Shakadave's Super Bowl Soup

    I'm glad you asked!

    For the last 16 years or so, I've had a tradition of making Super Bowl Soup. It's a little different every year, but is always sort of heavy like a stew, always with one meat, a bag or two of beans, and a bunch of vegetables, and always spicy. It's always a good bet that you'll see baby corn and water chestnuts in the mix; an average of about $45 or $50 goes into the pot (a huge pot that makes enough to freeze some to eat throughout the year). I make it on Saturday because it's better when the tabasco and Worcestershire sauce have had a day to sink in. On game day it is paired with Dos Equis Amber or Newcastle Brown Ale, and cheese and crackers. If it's spicy enough, the soup should make your upper lip sweat.

    I make it every year with just those guidelines, but in years when the Patriots are in it, I'm required to theme the soup to the city where the game is played. (This requirement was not added until Super Bowl XXXVI, so it's brought good luck.) When it was in New Orleans, it was a white broth for the first time --- other years it had always been red/tomato-based --- and was sort of a play on chicken gumbo. When the game was in Houston, the soup theme was Tex-Mex, with taco-style crumbled browned beef. I had a hard time deciding what to do for Jacksonville in XXXIX, but finally decided to go with smoked ham and blackeyed peas, and it came out excellent I must say, with kale, onions, turnips, liquid smoke, and many other things in there.

    So this year, the soup will probably have beef and chili peppers, with possibly some shredded Mexican cheese to sprinkle atop each hot bowl. Then again, I could go in the direction of chicken with cilantro. I never know for sure until I do the soup shopping, usually Friday night.

    Just give me a bag of chips and a pack of beer. I always lose my appetite during games.

    I believe Rachael Ray would call this a Stewp...too heavy to be soup, not thick enough to be a stew.

    Seriously, though, it sounds pretty damn awesome. Let us know how this years turns out.

    Well, I'm writing this from New Orleans where I've just eaten my third enormous meal in 24 hours. I think that I might never need to eat again ...

    But before I got here, the plan was this. If we win, I break open a bottle of Bollinger Champagne and eat a peanut butter and jelly sandwich made to Bill Belichick specifications (grape jelly, raisin bread).

    For the game itself, a Jamie Oliver steak sandwich. Recipe more or less as follows. Ultra-thin steak, marinaded with olive oil and rosemary, griddled for a couple of minutes. Ciabatta warmed and split, spread with mustard. Add rocket and olive oil and lemon juice over the steak. Eat with a tomato salad. Red wine or (and?) Sam Adams.

    The crushed dreams of Charger fans, with just a dash of Jet fan inferiority complex and a side of Colt Holier than thou but sitting at home.

    Nachos with sour cream, jalapenos, meat and cheese, plenty of ****tail sausages, Doritos and a load of beer.

    That's all, I think.

    Probably nachoes and pizza... although I've lately been on a kick of making Indian food. For the AFCCG I made spicy potatoes with tomato and onion sauce, lamb and spinch (lamb palak), and ground lamb with with peas (keema mutter). It's not really football food, but I'm obsessed, so I made it.

    Thank you, Mrs. Kraft. Oh, she'll be at the game. Then, thank you for that, Mrs. Romney. :snob: :)
