The Super Bowl is not very popular in many Canadian homes but it is a much anticipated event at ours. My 2 men are football fans. They love watching the football game. I love watching the commercials and the half time show. This year’s show was simply great. Madonna was dressed as Cleopatra at first. She danced with the group LMFAO. She performed Vogue in the beginning, sang her new song and ended the show with Like A Prayer. The show was fantastic: the lights, the sounds, the dancers. I simply loved it. Even my 4 year old was dancing with Madonna, singing and picking up her moves. In reality we had two shows at home – Madonna and the little one – what a great time.
My husband and son started the game disappointed as the Giants were leading early in the game 9-0. All of the sudden, the patriots took the lead back 9-10, and they went nuts – jumping, screaming and dancing as if their lives depended on it. I just can’t keep up with this craziness.
10 minutes before the end of the game, the score was 15-17, my and husband and son were stressed, as anything can happen and the Super Bowl was simply swinging between the Giants and the Patriots. Unfortunately, the Patriots lost!
Super Bowl snacks for your party
Each year, we have a great family evening watching the Super Bowl. A family night cannot be a success without snacks. Our Super Bowl evening is celebrated with Orville Redenbacher popcorn and coke. They make our Super Bowl night a special one, simply because they are so good. We love Redenbacher popcorn because it has so many flavors. We love coke because it is the best tasting soft drink ever.
For this special evening, I prepare a Nacho Popcorn recipe from Orville Redenbacher’s along with chicken wings. A few days before the game, I went shopping for my missing ingredients at Loblaws. Be sure to check out my shopping story on Google+. You will love it.
Here are the ingredients for the Nacho Popcorn recipe:
- 1 bag (2.9 ounces) (11 cups popped) Gourmet® Butter Microwave Popcorn
- 2 tablespoons Nacho cheese flavored seasoning
- 1 tablespoon Taco seasoning mix with less sodium
1- Prepare popcorn according to the directions. For most microwaves, you will need to microwave for 2 1/2 minutes.
2- Pour popcorn in a sealed bag with the Nacho cheese and Taco seasoning. Shake well.
3- That’s it! So easy to do.
Now let’s party and eat great food! We enjoyed these great snacks while watching the show. I also had fun tweeting with my fellow bloggers. Be sure to check our tweets using this hashtag : #PepsivsCoke .
We ended the evening with this ice cream cake for dessert. YUMMY!
