    I've been asked to host a Superbowl party with expectation of the typical finger foods.  Any thoughts?

    since you had better get shopping i thought i'd give you a few thoughts...basically the sky's the limit and i don't think foods neccessarily have to 'match', but unless you have a plan, however loose, it has a tendency to get out of hand....so stay focused....there are many different directions to go in...wings are almost always somewhere in the mix...but you don't have to serve the normal buffalo style..you could mix it up and go curried, or chipotle or bourbon bbq.....or maybe just some interesting dipping sauces instead of the typical blue cheese or ranch. ribs are always great as are grilled sausages, brats, kosher hot dogs & sliders. someone here mentioned cubanos which would be good or even long italian style subs(salami, cheese, peppers, pepperoncini etc),chili, potstickers,egg rolls queso dip, lots of chip and dips. cowboy beans, pasta salad...it's all about grazing...grazing for hours.....do make sure you have something for the ladies like a simple raw vegetable tray or fruit or both.....not that we don't like our hot dogs, but since it's a long affair, i would like to see something light and fresh.......

    desserts...small finger desserts...brownies, good cookie assortment, bowl of strawberries...that sort of thing...hope this helps......good luck and go giants!

    I concur Sista' Joey!  Twist it up a bit.  I myself am not a vegetarian, but I agree that after the first hour or so of munching, something fresh is nice.  Fruit kabobs with a honey and yogurt dip? 

    My husband has to work on Sunday, oh shucks, no football? 

    I'll be watching the PUPPY BOWL and DVR the game, just for the commercials!!   HA!!!

    Let us all know how you do SeaCoastChef...

    Keeping it simple this year with several types of sliced sausage, cheeses, veggie tray, assorted dips and chips, breads and spreads if anyone wants a sandwich.

    I made Huli Huli Chicken (please see my thread in Recipes) and steamed white rice along with stir fried "Asian" veggies (rather than Mac Salad as we would normally have in Hawaii).
