Ryan and I kept it low-key this year. We wanted to actually watch the game and not have to worry about going anywhere. And, considering the high temp was in the NEGATIVES, I felt totally fine about staying at home.
We have been incredibly busy lately and tried to cram as much work in as possible before the game, totally forgetting about prepping the appetizers. So, here we are in our living room assembling everything on our coffee table while watching the game and commercials. Yes, we have DVR and can pause live TV, but it's tough to do during sports events.
Here are the potstickers we made. These are wonton wrappers stuffed with shredded kale, jicima, carrots, and green onions. We served them with soy sauce and thai chile sauce mixed together.
We also made more spanikopita. The whole Greek dinner was made recently for some of our friends so we still had some raw materials to make more spanikopita. We love these things! I typically use Athenos Sun-Dried Tomato feta cheese and realize that's the best. We used President's Greek Blend this time and it just wasn't as good. (Still very good though!)
The evening before the Superbowl, we went to a friend's house for game night and I brought the Chex Mix. As mentioned a few months back, this is Ryan's mom's recipe and it's a popular one. It's usually only made at Christmas and for camping, but I figured I'd throw together another batch for a casual get-together.
I am so excited to get through the workday as we have a super fun event planned for a work outing tonight. I work for a very large company and we have about 40 recruiters for our various divisions. We are all headed to Cooks of Crocus Hill for a cooking class/team bonding event! I hear there's going to be a competition, so we'll see how it goes. I'll take pictures!
