It may come as no big surprise that football is America’s most popular sport, and has been that way for the past thirty-three consecutive years. This year’s season opener between the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots had some estimated twenty-one million viewers last Thursday. As many already know, the Super Bowl is almost always one of the highest rated broadcasts on television through any given year; drawing in not only football fans, but there are many who just want to view the ever-popular commercials or the versatile half time show. Which makes finding a group of friends and family who would like to watch Sunday’s game an easily achievable task.
Sunday traditions have been passed down from generation to generation, and has become an excellent way for friends & family to spend quality time together. Rivalries and bonds are created among friends over their hometown team; with all bets being off during game time, as things can sometimes get serious when the playoffs are on the line. The games may create some amount of disagreements in how plays were called, what penalties were or weren’t flagged and whether the players foot was in bounds or not. One thing everyone should be able to agree on is that tasty food makes everything alright.
MASTERING THE MENU
Hosting any kind of party takes a little bit of planning in order for the festivities to go off without a problem, and the menu is no different. After all, next to the game of honor, the food is often the second most important feature of the day. There are several things to take into consideration when it comes to menu planning, like food allergies or other dietary restrictions. You wouldn’t want to have all meat items if you have a vegetarian attending, or use peanut oil when there is a nut allergy present.
