That’s pretty much how I feel about the Super Bowl. I probably would not have known it was happening this weekend except that the church service we usually attend in the evening was cancelled today, so we had to go in the morning.
But, I do love a good theme and snack food– so, it didn’t take much convincing to get me to a watch party.
After the heart attack I created last weekend, I wanted to make a less deadly sweet. I settled on whole grain cookies with walnuts, dried cranberries, and dark chocolate. Not necessarily a “health” food, but this one didn’t involve 12 sticks of butter, either 😉
Brian, on the other hand, went back to Garden & Gun, the infamous magazine that inspired the epic cake. He settled on bacon crackers– bacon wrapped around Club crackers, cooked on low heat for a long time. It’s buttery, bacon goodness– what’s not to love?
We took our treats to a party with our old missional community group. It was wonderful to see everyone and get a chance to catch up. I miss them.
There were also three different snacks wrapped in bacon. Three. Bless the Lord.
