Five women friends and I were standing around after church Wednesday night talking about and planning our upcoming Super Bowl party. If you could have listened in on our conversation, you may have rolled your eyes. Or maybe you would have shrugged along with us?
“What time does the game start?” “What channel is it on?” “Who’s playing this year?”
Clearly, we are a well informed group of ladies, always keeping up with the latest trends and world events.
One of the girls jumped in excitedly with, “No wait. I’ve got this one.” Then she told us not just one, but both of the teams playing. Very impressive. I can’t for the life of me remember what she said now. I was just in awe of the fact that one of us actually knew.
We should have stopped talking right that minute, or at least began to focus on the food part of our planning. But no. Instead we had to discuss where we thought the teams were from. Why? Why would we do that?
It would appear that we don’t know our football geography very well. I’m not going to rat anybody out, but somebody thought the Steelers were from California.
(Just so you know, in case you are also going to a Super Bowl party, the Steelers aren’t…from California. There is no end to the helpful information you can learn while reading this blog. I am always glad to be of service.)
Finally my friends and I moved on to territory we are well informed about: FOOD.
My pregnant friend who was helping to plan the party suggested hinted BEGGED that someone should really make “that seven layer chip dip thing”. Hey, I’ll make anything for my pregnant friend, since she finally figured out something that sounds good.
In addition to the dip, I’m planning on taking something else fun (suggestions???) in that above pictured football dish someone loaned me.
And I could do a Swag Search to find a recipe for Seven Layer Chip Dip Thingy. But you all are so smart and have so many fun ideas…I decided to just ask you.
What seven layers should I layer? Meat or no meat? Onions or no onions? Never mind. I don’t think she’ll want onions. But she does want avocado. (Don’t you love it when I think out loud?)
I’m afraid with all of your answers I’ll end up with a Twelve Layer Chip Dip Thingy. That will probably be okay though, won’t it? We will, after all, be needing a large container of dip while we visit in the background watch all the commercials thoroughly enjoy the game.
In addition to your Seven Layer Chip Dip ideas…please let us all know if you’re hosting or going to a Super Bowl Party and more importantly…what are ya making to eat??
