Anatomy of a Dinner Party: a day in the life of a hospitalityaholic

Super Bowl, Super Party

Written by Patti on February 5th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

I imagine many of you will be throwing parties this weekend for what is, for the most part, a national holiday – Super Bowl Sunday.

The commercials are the draw for me. But the game can be fun to watch, too. What’s the key thing for the day, though? Let’s say it together, shall we?  The FOOD, of course!

Your crew has already tried the wings, the take out pizza, the onion dip out of a container.  How about switching it up a bit this year? I am going to give you some recipes that will make you look like the star I know you are – and easy! Because no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen when the party is in the living room, right?

How about these beauties?

Super Bowls!

Aren’t they adorable? The recipe is from darling Paula over at Paula Does Pasta. So go on over to her site and give these a try. Doesn’t the photo just make you want to jump in?

Another easy dish (although it takes some planning) is to take a pork butt, put it in your crockpot with a bottle of Mojo sauce (or two, depending on the size of your butt…the pork butt, silly!), put it on high for about 3 hours and shred. Serve on tiny dinner rolls topped with cole slaw. This is crazy tasty and easy!

How about some Mexican Hummus? From over at My Kitchen Addiction – doesn’t that sound great? And healthy (shhhh…we won’t tell…)

A Nice, Healthy Nosh

And you are absolutely going to need a dessert – I love making cookies since you can walk around with them. Giant cookies. Don’t feel like baking? Pick them up at your favorite bakery – there is no shame in getting some help.

May the best commercial team win!

xoxo, Patti
