I know I certainly had a great time family and friends watching the game! There was so much laughter, fun, eats, and game pools! Not to mention I won the pool at the end of the first quarter last night. I am happy to say I am $25 richer :)
My mom drove me back last night after the game was over so I didn't get back to campus around 11:15 and then my mom still had to drive home, so she got home at 12:15 am! The things moms will do for their daughters ;)
So the one word that comes to mind when I think of a Superbowl Party is obviuosly football (duh) but also FOOD! The whole game seems to be centered around food. I was pretty proud of myself because I was not as nervous as I usually get before going to parties where I don't know what food will be served. But it wasn't until I saw the whole table filled with food was when I got a bit scared as to what I was going to eat! I will get to more on this later.
Without further ado I will let the pictures do most of the talking from the game! I warn you there are tons of iPhone food pics. I actually really felt like an actual food blogger last night ;) But there is defs more room for improvement.
this table of food. Note this was just the start of the food, there was much more to come!
First up were the appetizers...
Bread & spinach dip and chips & dip
Shrimp cocktails and fruit
Chicken wings and a calzone dish (don't know what exactly was in it though!)
Now if that weren't enough food, it was now onto the main dishes...
We have some CHILI! Yummm.
Pulled pork, meatballs, and sloppy joes
My aunt's homemade brownies. Now she is so NOT a cook, but she happens to be a great brownie baker ;) She knows that too! Then, some dark chocolate brownies with whipped cream and chocolate chips.
My pretzel candy melts I made, obviously in Valentine's Day colors and some sugahh cookies.
Cream puffs are always a big hit! Along with a COLTS cake, clearly a Colts fan brought it!
I hope you didn't get too hungry as you were looking through all those pics!
So let me back up to my anxiety around all the food last night. Like I said before I didn't get overwhelmed until I saw all the food on the table. My mind just kept going in all different directions. I was thinking about how much calories were in each meal, which foods I should eat, which foods I shouldn't, what everyone else was eating, etc.
I literally walked around the table several times before putting any item of food onto my plate. Ridiculous, right?! But alas, I finally calmed down and did the best I could to choose the foods that best fit into my meal plan. It definitely wasn't easy, but it WAS possible.
Even though I had a lil anxiety before hand, I felt as though I did a good job eating the foods that were there and that fit well into my meal plan!
Well I am off to do some homework because it sure ain't gonna do itself and I have to get it all done before The Bachelor tonight ;)
How was your Superbowl night?
