In honor of Superbowl Sunday, I will be cooking and eating like I'm a bachelor betting on the game. I plan to tap a fresh keg of beer, make nachos smothered in 3 different types of cheese and top it with jalapenos, sour cream and guacamole. Then at halftime, I'll be dishing out some homemade Sloppy Joes with a side of coleslaw and chips, followed by chocolate chip, double fudge brownies a-la-mode. Healthy (NOT).
Even though I'll be glued to the TV (having yet to decide whether I'm for my hometown Giants or my new ground Patriots), I'll still be playing the role of hostess with the mostest by serving up this 10,000 calorie feast with a little panache (buffet style of course). After all, I haven't forgotten that I have a reputation to uphold!
Beer will be served in monogrammed glass pints with a pitcher on hand to minimize trips away from the TV during those can't-be-missed commercials (www.idaclaire.com).
Cloth Napkins with a subtle football theme will be used (www.homejameseasthampton.com).
And good dishes too (www.katespade.com).
Sloppy Joes will be served from this pop-of-color bowl.
And nachos will be piled up high here - both from www.lecreuset.com.
To keep it casual, I'll use these baskets for fresh flaky rolls.
And their coasters to keep my tabletops dry (both from Artifacts Trading Co).
So, even if you plan on looking like a crazed football fan, you can still put out a stylish spread before behaving badly... Go Team!?
