This years Super Bowl Bash was so much fun! And to cut down on stress and infuse more excitement for us as hosts, we throw parties a little differently than others do -- Bryan and I provide the booze, minor snacks (chips, candy, nuts) party supplies, decor and meat (if we're grilling) and we ask guests to each bring a side dish or dessert. Not only do I get to enjoy the party just that much more, but because people only have to bring 1 item (some choose to bring more) they tend to be more creative -- pulled pork sliders, chili, hoggies, various dips, meatballs, jalapeno stuffed pastries, veggie and fruit plates, brownies, mint ice cream sandwich cake and much, much more was brought to our party. Talk about food heaven, which is a win win for all!
Our party lasted until midnight, with some trickling out during the 3rd and 4th quarter. Beyonce is my hero and I'm positive that our house was the most quiet and entranced while she was performing!
Maran and Ashton both won the 1st and 2nd quarter money in the pot!
And the big winner of the night was none other than Bryan -- Always nice to win back a 1/3 of the money you put into a party!
