Here is a menu I plan to use this Sunday:
Store-bought Pigs-in-a-blanket: an old favorite that never cedes to make 'em happy (serve with good spicy brown mustard)
Delicious and Easy Buffalo Chicken Wings with blue cheese dressing and celery(finger-lickin' good)
Half time Chili (halftime never tasted so good)
-serve with chopped onion, sour cream, shredded cheese, and chives
BLT Salad: (one that the boys will even eat)
Buy iceberg lettuce, beefsteak tomatoes, and bacon from your butcher if possible (pancetta will also do the trick). You can serve this salad as a wedge or else chop up the lettuce, tomatoes, and pan fry the bacon (keep an eye on it, as thin pieces tend to cook quickly). If you want to just throw the bacon in the oven, that works too (preheat to 400 degrees, and bake for about 15 minutes). You can throw a little brown sugar on the bacon before baking to make them nice and sweet.
Allow the bacon to cool and mix together the ingredients and toss with ranch dressing
*you can also add some blue cheese since you would have it on hand (but then it would be called the blt-c salad)
Cheddar Cheese Biscuits (that melt in your mouth)
Drink: Beer (of course!) Time to whip out those engraved beer mugs if you actually registered for them. (I didn't) Drinking out of the can is just as cool.
Dessert: S'mores Bars (featured in The Tastiest: Barnone)
