  17. I definitely think this is one of my favorite roundups. Lol. I've found so many great meal ideas here!

  18. I just love that pioneer woman butter dish. Thanks for sharing such a yummy recipe. Potato soup is perfect during this cold weather

  19. It's strange but I love super bowl parties even though I'm not a big fan of football. If I decide to go to one this year I'll definitely consider making the Mango Peach Pineapple Salsa or the chicken corn chowder. Thanks for sharing these.

  20. Can't wait to try some of these recipes. The chipolte nachos will be first up. They sound yummy.

  21. These look mighty delicious. Is it possible t try the potato soup without the cheese?

  22. The list of delicious recipes is making my mouth water.
    Though we are not into football good food is always welcome

  23. Though we do not have amaerican football I still enjoy all the preparations y'all make and these meals all look real delicious

  24. I'm not a football fan, but these meals look scrumptious! I could make these dishes for soccer night.

  25. Chili is a must make for football games. I have a veggie chili, spicy, that is a family and friend favorite.

  26. I can't believe that the Football Game season is here again. Seems like we were just celebrating last years. Your recipes look great. I think I will try the Italian meatloaf balls and creamy potato soup this year.

  27. I love the sound of many of your options but being in Houston where the weather will probably be warm, Id go for the nachos for sure and the wings, especially if they have some heat to them. Im sad our home team didn't make it to the Super Bowl as that would have been just great for our city but the weekend will be fantastic as there are so many events planned to make the most of all the additional visitors.

  28. I do love a good chili but I tend to make mine more on the vegetarian side using quinoa. I usually make it on superbowl Sunday. I am however a meat lover and am very curious now how the chicken one would taste. Looks pretty good at that. Wow! Superbowl already.

  29. I am always looking for great game day recipes to try with my family. Those MEatballs will be added to my list. SO GOOD! This time of the year is so much fun with all of the great games that are on TV. THank you for the great list of perfect game day food!

  30. I usually stick with the same old appetizers for our game day fare. I can already tell that I will be referencing this post frequently! My favorite part about Football Season is the FOOD!! Buffalo Wings, Pizza Dip -- oh my! Which one do I try first?!

  31. I don't watch football at all, but I do love football and tailgating foods! Pizza, dips, wings, YUM! They are all so finger licking good! I would totally attend a Superbowl party just to eat.

  32. I just had to click on the Oklahoma Fried Pickles recipe, and I love the way that they look. I see all of these great game day recipes every year, but never wind up making them. I think I am really missing out on making the day even more fun.

  33. Oh this roundup is drool worthy LOL! I have my eye on that chili and the baked potato soup. I've actually never made baked potato soup before, but I love it! I am sooo checking that one out!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments. I read each and every one of them.
