Sunday is the gameday to top all gamedays — it’s so culturally pervasive that I can’t even mention it’s trademarked name in this post without the National Football League’s permission. This event transcends the sports world to draw in people who haven’t watched a first down all season. Those of us on Team Don’t Even Know Who’s Playing might not care about football, but we do care about three things: inventive commercials, a halftime show featuring the Red Hot Chili Peppers and game day food.
Yes, the food. That’s what we’re all truly excited for, right? An evening-long munch-fest requires its own game plan, so I’ve broken it down, play by play, with some favorite recipes and serious attempts at the obligatory sports metaphors.
Devoted fan finger foods: These are the snacks to keep in the game-watching room withing easy reach for the rapturous football fans who want to watch every last (eternal) second of the game. Be sure to refresh often.
Bite-sized blitz: For us non-football fans, the “blitz” is the time in between commercials when you rush to the side lines to fill up your plate with bite-sized comfort food.
