There’s a good reason why “Super Green Bowls” is my longest running once-a-year series for MNN: everybody loves football, everybody loves snacks, and everybody loves an attractive piece of serveware in which to dazzle guests (and to also cry into depending on how the game goes). Combine the three and, well, you’ve got yourself Super Bowl party gold.
With the 47th edition of America’s preeminent
spectacle of capitalism pigskin playoff
just around the corner, it’s time once again to round-up a few handmade, eco-friendly, and/or recycled content bowls appropriate for serving up a feast of your favorite traditional finger- and football-friendly fare
along with regional delicacies that honor this year’s AFC and NFC champions. Crab dip and, umm, Rice A Roni, anyone? (Sorry, but San Francisco’s real
treat, Cioppino, seems too messy, too involved).
So whether you and your guests plan on screaming at the television in support of the Baltimore Ravens or the San Francisco 49ers or are really just gathering to get drunk, marvel at the mega-expensive commercials
, and critique the halftime show performance by noted archivist
, Beyoncé, along with a reunited Destiny’s Child (please, for the love of God, let them do “Bills, Bills, Bills”), it’s best to have a few super green bowls at the ready. And on the topic of commercials, I should point out that after
faking it at the Presidential Inauguration
, Queen Beyoncé is handing off “National Anthem” duties at Super Bowl 47 to Citibank-approved
diva Alicia Keys.
Also, I’d be remiss in not suggesting a few nontoxic stain solutions
and cleaning tools
to help remedy any unsightly Super Bowl party fouls. You know … Natty Boh splashed on the sofa, wing sauce dripped onto the carpet, bloodstains on the walls after your co-worker and next-door neighbor decided to head-butt each other in the third quarter.
May the best Harbaugh win!
