Some people watch the Super Bowl for the sport of it; others
tune in for the commercials. However, most of the nation's
population usually gathers around the food table in hopes of
finding some delicious munchies. My family loves the Super Bowl and
we always plan a get-together to celebrate the end of our fantasy
In the week leading up to it, we discuss what kind of food will
make its debut and this year is no exception. We've done
fill-a-pita pocket (yummy meats and fillings in crockpots!) and

- a definite crowd pleaser. This weekend, I'll probably plan on
busting out the cheddar bacon dip, the bacon double cheeseburger
dip (do you see a pattern here?), or the mini seven-layer dip in
mason jars. I think they all look pretty fabulous!
