CELEBRATE SUPERBOWL WITH GREAT FOOD!

Welcome to TLB friends!

On February 7th, in Santa Clara, California at Levi Stadium, Super Bowl 50 will be held. Fans from across the nation will gather to support the Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a ticket to this hallowed event, so many of us celebrate in our homes, gathered around our TV's, eating, drinking and cheering for our favorite team.

I put together a quick tablescape and a couple dishes to get the party started.





No sporting event is complete without some sort of buffalo chicken.....SLOW COOKER BUFFALO CHICKEN is an easy party recipe which takes very little preparation. You may use it with lettuce wraps or mini whole wheat rolls as I did. 

The recipe may be found here:

There's always room for a cheese ball. This year I've made BACON RANCH CHEDDAR FOOTBALL CHEESE BALL. If you like bacon, cheese and Ranch dressing.....you'll love this cheese ball. Serve it with Ritz crackers--yum! (You actually shape the cheese ball in a football shape!)

We love chips and salsa and since moving to Texas our favorites are Julio's Chips and Salsa.  http://www.julioscornchips.com/ So we'll be serving them too!

Whether you are routing for Peyton Manning and team or Cam Newton and team, we hope you enjoy SUPER BOWL 50!

May the best team win!
