Skipping the Super Bowl?

How to make the most out of Super bowl Sunday sans football:
1. Pick Up an Extra Shift at Work: Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect opportunity to make some extra cash by filling in for a game-watching co-worker.
2. Head to the Mall: While the mall is usually a zoo on the weekends, Super Bowl Sunday is like a shopper’s dream. Plenty of parking, no waiting for dressing rooms and no competition at the clearance racks.
3. Empty Machines: If you usually avoid the gym at the weekends due to lines at the machines-Super Bowl Sunday is your no-excuse day! Head over to the gym  and get a nice workout in-free of standing in line for the elliptical.
4. Make that Reservation: Go head and try to get into that trendy restaurant you have been trying to get a reservation for forever-with many people occupied by the big event, you will have your pick of tables.

1. Set the Stage- Place mini helmets around your home such as on a fireplace mantle or on the food table. Put pennants up and other football accessories. A local party store is a great place to find inexpensive party decor.
2. Snacks and Appetizers-Your game day party should be casual and the atmosphere should be laid back and fun. Encourage guests to mingle and move around my placing snacks in both the kitchen and game viewing room. Great options are mixed nuts and popcorn. Both of these can be kicked up a notch by putting a spin on the classics. Why not try  Homemade Cinnamon Sugar Candied Nuts or Cheesy Popcorn? Great options for appetizers include Mini PizzasHot Artichoke and Spinach DipLucky Seven Layer Dip, or Perfect Guacamole.
3. The Main (food) Event- Once the appetizers and snacks have been munched on and the big game is beginning, it’s time to move onto the main course. Delicious ideas include: Foccacia SandwichesBaked Buffalo WingsStacked EnchiladasChipotle and Cheese Sliders, or Slow Cooker Chili.
4. A Sweet Ending- No party is complete without dessert. Check out these sweet game day themed treats: Fudgy Football BrowniesSuperbowl BarsSuperbowl Cookies, or Touchdown Cheesecake Bites.
