Planning for the Superbowl
It is hard to believe it has been a year already. At this time last year, we were in the last steps of getting ready for our big trip - packing up the apartment, saying goodbye to everyone and trying out our backpacks for the first time. Needless to say, this year isn't quite as exciting, but we do have something to look forward to... The Patriots are on their way to the Superbowl and we are about to host our favorite party of the year - Superbowl Sunday!

I am working on the menu, but haven't yet finalized it. Since this is our 9th annual party, the menu is always a mix of party favorites and some new things I have been wanting to try out.

At the moment, these are the contenders:

Lamb Meatballs with mint yogurt sauce
Crudite with herbed yogurt dip
Stellina’s potato and basil spread
Spinach Artichoke Dip
7 layer dip

Toppings (sour cream, scallions, cheese)
Corn bread

Congo bars
Whoopie Pies

The menu is always a I am mostly still trying to figure out the right mix of appetizers. Hopefully I will come to a decision in the next couple of days...
