I was just about to post my Southport trip, but then remembered that I have yet to post the Superbowl Sunday recap! That is what happens when you let posts slip too far into the past.
Nick and I rushed back from Asheville early Sunday morning so that we could stop at Party City and the grocery store to get ready for the Superbowl party he was hosting at his place.
He was making chili and cornbread and I decided to make fresh fruit and giant subs.
I love making subs for parties because they’re easy to assemble and the perfect finger food.
The first sub had: american cheese, honey ham, turkey, garlic cream cheese, tomatoes, and lettuce.
The second sub: pepperjack cheese, american cheese, bacon, garlic cream cheese, roast beef, honey ham, smoked turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, onion, cucumber, bell pepper, olive oil, salt, pepper, and mayo.
Third & Most Favored Sub: mozzarella cheese, pepperjack cheese, salami, pepperoni, honey ham, and a special sauce.
Special sauce: 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese grated, 1 tablespoon garlic powder, 1/2 tablespoon minced onion, 1 teaspoon italian seasoning, sprinkle pepper and sea salt. Spread the sauce on the top later and bottom later of the bun.
I made the subs several hours before the party and put them outside to stay cool. Grumples guarded them.
About ten minutes before the party, I put the third sub in the oven for fifteen minutes.
I cut all the subs for finger foods.
The warm sub was definitely the favorite and lasted about fifteen minutes. I should have ran to the store to make two more!
The special sauce and pepperoni is what made the sub addicting!
I bought some pretty cool Super Bowl trays at Party City!
Everyone brought something too!
I cut up some pineapple, strawberries, melon, grapes, and watermelon for a fruit bowl!
Our friend, Wes, made some awesome guacamole and it was hard to put down!
Another one our friends made something pretty cool and unique. It was a caramel apple dessert tray. The bottom had a cheesecake type dip and onto was a caramel glaze and peanuts for dipping the apples into. I may have to come up with a healthy version for the blog and maybe try this idea with strawberries and chocolate!
Ben and MC made incredible grilled wings, Nick’s chili and cornbread was awesome, and everyone else’s dishes were so perfect! It was an awesome Super Bowl party!
During halftime, everyone sang happy birthday to me and then we had a chocolate cake that Nick bought! It was delicious!
Mc made a brownie and pudding dish with peanut butter cup hearts on top! So freaking good!
I loved the Katy Perry halftime show! What did you think of it?
No one really had a dog in the fight and so we played a football square game. It’s five dollars a square. You win depending on the score at halftime and the final score of the game. I would have won if the Seahawks ran the ball instead of making the worst play call in the history of play calls.
Joe and Alex ended up being the two winners.
I love getting together with friends for parties, especially the Super Bowl. What did you do Super Bowl sunday and what was your favorite commercial? Mine was the TurboTax one!
