Okay, so my team didn't win. But we all know that the Super Bowl isn't really about the game....or who wins, or loses (sure I can be all philosophical about it now because my team lost). We know it's all about.....the FOOD!
The Husband and I usually try to come up with a menu that reflects a little about both teams......but really does anyone know what food specialty Indiana is known for????? We were stumped. Internet searches turned up zip, zilch, nada, bupkis!
So we did the best we could with a Super Bowl of Sandwich tasting plate: Top Right: The Lynn Dog ( a Hebrew National Kosher Frank wrapped in bacon and baked in phyllo), Bottom Right: Mini Muffalatta, Top Left: A Slider, Bottom Left: Mini Shrimp Po' Boy. Accompaniments: homemade cole slaw, homemade dill pickles and tomatoes. Oh, yes and Blue Maragaritas in honor of the Colts.
The Husband has a little problem with portion control and size......I swear each plate weighed 7lbs easy. We were full for days!!!
The Husband tackles the Muffalatta.........
Our good friend, Lynn................namesake of the, you guessed it, Lynn Dog.
My team may have lost, but we had a great time. And after all that is what the game is about....good friends, good food, good drinks.......good times!
