You don’t have to be super chef to quickly knock out these great Super Bowl snacks.
Super Bowl Sunday is February 4, 2018. Who will win Super Bowl LII (52 for those of us who forgot how to count in Latin…. I remember almost nothing…can you imagine doing division with that??...wait. I’m getting off track), the Eagles or the Patriots?
I, like many people who only watch football to see men in really tight pants run around a field, look forward to the Super Bowl for three things, no, it’s four things: Friends, aforementioned men in tight pants, food and Super Bowl commercials. Yes, I confess, I am clueless about football. But I like the food.
