“The Super Bowl”

The Best of the Best

By Jeanne Wolfley
When I mention the word "Super Bowl", my husband says "It’s time to see who the best of the best is". It’s a time of high excitement, with some nail biting moments! After all, you only think you know who is going to win!

Even if he is the only one watching the television screen, I’ll be sure to hear a lot of hoot’n & hollering.

If the boys come over, you have a party, not just any party, but a very loud party. Here are some hearty foods that can be enjoyed by all. It’s good to have a bit of spicy food around – if you start crying because your team is getting trashed you can blame the watery eyes on the spicy food!

Bratwurst Stew

½ lb. bratwurst, cut lengthwise and chunked
