    Default Snacks for Super Bowl party

    We're gearing up for the Super Bowl tomorrow, cheering on our local Chiefs. Looking forward to hanging out with friends and family and having some great snacks and brews. Doing some wings on the grill and found some interesting snacks at the store just now.

    Just looked at the calendar, nope it's not April 1st today.
    With the recent cold snaps in southern Florida, iguanas have been falling out of trees and the meat is offered for sale on line, I guess anything is possible.

    15 minutes of football stretched out over nearly four hours, those watching will need snacks.

    I love football, but over the years the Super Bowl has become more of an entertainment event than a football game. Even though I am a Chiefs fan, I think I would rather eat an iguana than sit through a whole Super Bowl telecast.

    So THATS what happened to all the iguanas that fell from the trees in FL during that cold snap...

    Iguana-flavored potato chips? That's just wrong.

    I bet those chips are really dry so each person best have at least a case of cold beer to wash her down with! "That's how I roll anyway!" Beer used to be all my food groups and pretty much took over breakfast, lunch, dinner, not to mention all the in between snacking or should I say licking down

    Like most sporting events on television, I like to lounge around on the couch and just noodle on an instrument. Then if the game becomes boring, it can become more serious practice.

    Oh, and that's the best Lay's I've seen yet. Wonder what the proper drink pairing is?

    Isn't "Super Bowl" somethingK-Tel used to advertise on late night TV? "You can eat from it! Mix in it! Store food in it! Wear it for a hat! Use it for haircuts!...!" I never understood why Americans get so excited about it. Anyway, enjoy yourselves, and may the taste of iguana linger on your taste buds.

    Super Bowl.

    Always been an admirer of Brian Dean's work. Apparently Julien Martineau is playing one on his new release.

    Where do you get the Iguana flavored chips? All I could find were these:

    On another note, smoked eel was some of the best smoked meat I ever had.

    There's a huge Asian market in Kansas City and I've tried a number of flavors like the above from parts all over the world. And guess what? They're all good. It's just the names that sound different if you're in the U.S. Not so different from mandolins, really. If you have preconceived notions then that's your paradigm.

    Well, the Iguana was a 10 minute Photoshop spoof, in case that wasn't clear. We have a friend who is a delivery driver for Lay's and he loved it. We were hosting a small party with some friends that are used to our antics. My wife is far better at this than I.

    Say, look at the calendar. April Fool's in 60 days.

    Congrats to your KC Chiefs, it was quite a game made even more exciting when the tv we were watching it on decided to reset itself when the Chiefs were 3rd and goal with 2:44 left in the game. We all ran to the other room in time to watch the play - which went under review then...THAT TV DECIDED TO RESET ITSELF...!!!...we were ready to reset our friend who was hosting the party...lucky for him he got the TVs working again and we were able to see the end of the game...

    I often miss the days when you simply hit the one/off switch, and changed the channel by hand . . . and the only time there was a 'reset' was when the TV died, and you had to buy a new one.
