Superbowl Sunday

Superbowl Sunday is a holiday in our house. The hubby and I look forward to it every year, even when neither of our teams is in it. Well, let's face it. His team is never in it, the poor hubby being a Bengals fan. This year's Superbowl between the Patriots and the Giants was not really a game we were looking forward to watching because A. This was a repeat of Superbowl XLII and B. I loathe the Patriots. My dislike of the Patriots stems back to the ill-fated 2002 season when the Patriots denied my Steelers from making it to the Superbowl. Never the less we still looked forward to today, if only because it gave us an excuse to make wings.
My hubby's homemade wings are delish! He coats the chicken wings in a mixture of flour, salt, and pepper and browns them up in a frying pan. They then go in the oven for about 25 minutes, basting them with wing sauce 2-3 times during this duration. After they come out of the oven they get a quick toss in more wing sauce and then... we basically devour them. A couple of pictures to sum up our holiday:

Pre-Superbowl snack of chips, salsa, and Miller Lite
We always buy whole wings and the hubby separates them with a cleaver. The whole wings seem to have more meat on them than the pre-cut up "party"wings

The final product. Served with the traditional celery and blue cheese dip. Yum!
Me and Haloti. I still wear my Steelers gear for the Superbowl, even when they aren't playing!
I must say that while I was not looking forward to the game, I am satisfied with the outcome. Sorry Dad! :)


  1. I was not looking forward to the game but I have to say we have tradition as well by making game food and yelling at the TV lol! I also had to wear my PINK 49ers gear in protest of them not quite making it :( boo Giants ;)

  2. Grrrrrr. Stupid Giants and their quarterback Elvis Manning.
