Super Plates

Being the total girly-girl that I am, I have never made any attempts at even feigning interest in football, but there are a few things I love about the SuperBowl- none of which involve the game. Sure, I love a good monkey commercial as much as the next guy, but I don't find it sufficient reason to congregate all day.

For me, the SuperBowl marks the joyous and official end to my husband's excuse for accomplishing absolutely nothing on Sundays- except for, occasionally, a slow-cooked meal. I mean, seriously, can you imagine if I told him all I was doing was sitting on the couch and watching Housewives all day on Sundays? Ludicrous. I don't even think a pulled pork dinner would get me that kind of shamelessly negligent time to myself.

So, for this reason alone, the SuperBowl is worth celebrating- and by "celebrating," I mean stuffing my face with appetizers and cookies all day long. If you're looking to do the same, here is a little inspiration from my favorite internet foodies to get you good and hungry:

Buffalo Chicken cups from Young Married Chic

Cheesy artichoke bread from Vanilla Sugar
Goat Cheese Stuffed Figs from Mint Love Social Club
Hot Carmelized Onion Dip from Closet Cooking.

Zuchinni Pizza Boats from Proud Italian Cook
Let the gorging commence!
