Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Super Food

Tomorrow is the Super Bowl
Super Sunday

This year -- Super Bowl 47

It is the

AFC Ravens
from Baltimore

against the
NFC 49ers
From San Francisco

Alas, our beloved

Kansas City Chiefs
are not in the Super Bowl --
They weren't even real contenders
And haven't been for a while.

But we're still fans

For no matter what,

They won Super Bowl IV

And played in Super Bowl I

And their owner, Lamar Hunt, when making arrangements for the NFL Champion to Play the AFL Champion (back in the day when it was two leagues and not conferences), was the one to coin the phrase for the new game -- Super Bowl!

Without our beloved Chief's, it's not really about the football
It's about the food

Snacks during first half

Chicken wings, Buffalo Style
The "real" recipe from the Anchor Bar in Buffalo
(procured by Daughter Sarah when she lived there)

And since Super Bowl Sunday is the day that there is more pizza consumed than any other . . .

Pizza Dip
(served with corn chips)

And at half time . . .

Out comes the bowls of chili

What team are we rooting for?

Team Budweiser
We love the Clydesdale Commercials!!!!

I'm joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sundays.

Our SIL is a big KC fan and we kid him it's only because it's his initials. You'd love the memorabilia in his man cave.
We're baseball fans so won't be watching but the food you have should make for some happy people at your place.

When we won the Super Bowl we were living in New Mexico and we were the ONLY couple to route for Kansas City. My hubby still talks about Hank Strams phrase "trick a latin down the field". We will be rooting for Baltimore tomorrow and planning on having dinner with our daughter & family.Yummy looking food too.

I won't be rooting for any particular team, or even watching, but I'll be providing the snacks!
