Super Bowl Prep Time

Sunday is the Super Bowl which is also the super bowl of snacks. If you haven't already decided , then stick with the basics guacamole, chips., wings, ribs and of course beers. After all that, if you want dessert, hey, throw that in too. You need to get that sugar high going when you dance to Bruce at halftime.

For guacamole, make sure you get extra avocados. Why the extra? Because even though they make look good, some are almost fifty per cent rotten. You have to scoop around this black part , thus not getting the whole avocado. Select ones that are firm yet yield to a finger tap. I usually go for Haas, I like their brand the best and their avocado makes the best dip. Make the dip about half an hour before guests comes. Guacamole turns quick and you don;t want to be serving guests black gunk. I usually make mine with plum tomatoes and onion powder. If your guests like crunch add a cup of diced onions for flavor and texture.

Wings and ribs are always fun (albeit super messy foods). You can make wings in a variety of heat s for a different spin. If that;s too time consuming call your local Wing Zone , Popeye's or Pollo Tropical for some already made ones. They will also supply you with dips and wet naps. Pollo Tropical has excellent ribs and you can order these with some sides.

As far as dessert, go for simple cupcakes or a football shaped cake. These you can buy at your local supermarket. This is not a big cake celebration. Besides devils' food doesn't exactly go with Bud Lite. Have bowls of M&Ms or Hershey's kisses around if they want something sweet to munch on at the end.Also brew a pot of coffee for those who need it or want a cup of something hot at the end of the night.

Enjoy this year's Super Bowl and let's hope your team wins. In the meantime. enjoy the food.
