Katy Perry performed at the Super Bowl 2015 half time and when she sang “eye of the tiger”, the whole stadium roared with her. What a brilliant performance.
We are hitting the corner for 50th NFL Super Bowl, on February 7th 2016. People will be tailgating at their homes, hosting parties, pooling in meals and cheering and roaring with their buddies and rooting for their favorite teams. Food is a huge part of any game celebration and no game is fun without some comforting finger food, appetizers, dips and desserts on the table. IMHO, this is the ideal party food of all the times. Nibble on finger foods, grab and bite, single serve kinda food. Easy, Mess free and no need of plates and forks, well most of the time :D.
I feel blessed that when I tagged my blogger community on facebook, many of them donned their aprons just for my collective and went out of their way to create a dish for the event. Doesn’t that sound exciting? I feel humbled. I would like to thank each and every participant of the event.
