It’s almost game day and you know what that means–time for a bowl board and brews! Of course, the game is fun (maybe?), but we are really here for the food. We thought we’d share our top three ways to make your Sunday night a breeze to throw together!
We LOVE football food, but let’s face it…it’s not winning any best-looking contests (and nearly impossible to photograph), but… but, but, but, if you put all the dips and chips together with a few extras, board-style, it can look pretty amazing! Use faux turf paper as your base, then build the look with cheese & spreads–finally, add in pops of color with dried oranges, parsley, and carrots.
Bowl Board Basics:
- guacamole (homemade or store-bought)
- spinach artichoke dip (Costco)
- Trader Joe’s Pub Cheese
- Trader Joe’s Buffalo Dip
- Fontina cheese
- Trader Joe’s Cotswold double Gloucester (current obsession)
- tortilla chips
- Trader Joe’s Parmesan crisps
- fried cheese bites & jalapeño ranch dip
- pita crackers
- dried oranges
- Italian flat-leaf parsley
Beer is the obvious choice and we love a combination of specialty and light beers. We are all about Maplewood’s Son of Juice right now. It is a New England style IPA, which means it has great citrus flavor but not particularly bitter—and this one is brewed in Chicago! Part those with Founder’s Solid Gold, Stella, or Miller Lite and you are good to go!
The Game For The Game
Our family loves a good betting game or any game in general, so no Super Bowl is complete without one (or two). For the kids, we love this printable (find a bald man, kids!). And for the adults, we are trying out strip cards!
Ashley and Caroline married their love for food and style and created the party blueprint planning business called Line and Lee. Their party styling services include the menu, the look, the all-important playlist, and an all-in-one checklist so you, the host can sit back and enjoy the party too.
