Ten Things About my Superbowl Experience

1. J and I hosted a Superbowl party. It was totally last-minute and we actually made food to take to another Superbowl party that was cancelled.

2. The stuff we already made was caramelized onion dip, baba ganouj, and fake meat won tons.

3. Being the hosts, we decided to supplement that haul with some Valentine's Day caramel kisses, pigs in blankets, and taquitos.

4. It being Super Bowl Sunday, there was a run on Little Smokies AND Crescent Roll dough. I had to substitute the Little Smokies with Little Bratties (miniature bratwurst) and had to fight for the last can of crescent roll dough.

5. Little bratties make VERY good pigs in blankets.

6. We LOOOOOOOVE the Burger King Homage to Busby Berkeley. Clearly the best commerical so far.

7. OH MY GOD. I can't stop crying because of the Dove self esteem commerical. I truly start losing it when the little Asian girl looks all sad because she hates her body.

8. Engaged Boy comes bearing a pizza. With onion dip, pigs in blankets, and pizza, we have officially entered guyland. J and I did a high five when Pittsburgh scored a touchdown.

9. Damn. The Burger King ad was the best ad. To the advertising industry, STEP IT UP. And Jay Mohr is really irritating.

10. Due to the timely arrival of pizza, taquitos were not eaten. BUT, how is it possible that five people can go through a bag of ruffles and onion dip, a double batch of pigs in blankets, a pizza, a double batch of won tons, a big bowl of baba banouj and pita bread, and a bag of Hershey's kisses in one evening?

Yeah, the BK ad was the best, which was rather disappointing. Although close second for me was the rotating beer wall.

Mmm...baba ghanouj.

I loved the Dove commerical....I called it right away...I was's gotta be DOVE! And it was....I feel like running out and buying all Dove products to support them and their positive messages they have been promoting.

The streaking sheep in the Bud Light ad was my favorite.

I liked the Budweiser commercial with the fellas up on the roof. That was hilarious.

How sad - there I was, a short walk away, with FOUR tubes of crescent rolls chez moi (bought for the debut but not used) that expire in the next week. I guess I'll be blanketing everything in my fridge this weekend.

Loved the Dove commercials.

Little bratties? Sounds delish! Where might one find them? I have never seen them.

At the Potomac Yard Shoppers they are in the cured meats section right after you walk out of produce. Near the kielbasa.
