Things Learned During Super Bowl XLIII

  • When you throw a party for 40 people and cook 7 different appetizers plus dessert, you’re not going to end up watching a lot of the game. In fact, you're going to spend the greater portion of your weekend prepping for the party. Thankfully, I am not a rabid football fan and I love to cook.
  • Never make a bet with my friend K. She has an uncanny ability to always win. It doesn’t matter if she sets the bet or if I do, she always wins. Yet ever year, I am compelled to bet with her. I’m currently trying to wash the “sucker” that’s been printed on my forehead.
  • If you serve something with bacon, you will make the crowd at your party very happy. In this case it was bacon crackers. (Leaving it up to your imagination what exactly those are.)
  • If you serve something fried, you will make the crowd at your party very happy. In this case, won tons filled with chocolate.
  • The Bean loves football, but admittedly doesn’t understand it.
  • TRANSFORMERS 2 looks exactly like TRANSFORMERS 1, which means TRANSFORMERS 2 is probably going to suck just as much as TRANSFORMERS 1 but will inexplicably make just as much money. But come on, we knew this already. Way to go Micheal Bay!
  • The GI JOE movie kind of reminds me of TRANSFORMERS, but in no way does it resemble anything I remember about GI Joe.
  • It’s a good idea to have a 3D ad during the game, but it would have been great if I could have found the glasses anywhere! Guess I'm not watching "Chuck" tonight either.
  • If you ever think about punching a koala in the face, that means it’s time for a new job. I bet this is especially true if you happen to be a zookeeper.
  • If you’re going to be able to watch the last ten minutes of a football game, it’s a plus if those ten minutes are really close and really exciting. Even if you end up losing to K.

I never do Superbowl parties anymore... I like the football too much to spend my time watching it with people who don't even know why they wear helmets.

I love my Super Bowl party. I've been hosting it for 13 years. It's tradition.

I would like a picture of the bacon crackers, please!

Emily...I don't have any pictures, but I can tell you this:

Take a cracker (square and buttery). Sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese on top (or if you're feeling saucy you can sprinkle brown sugar). Wrap in half a slice of bacon. Bake at 250 for 2 hours.

You won't be disappointed.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for printing that recipe.

I'm only reading this now on Thursday, so I didn't steal any of your observations about the movies for my own blog. I know you didn't think I did, but just to clear the air.
