I was very excited when I heard that Matthew Broderick was reprising his role as Ferris Bueller in a Super Bowl commercial and had actually planned to watch the Super Bowl so I didn’t miss it. But, the commercial has already been put online (we have it here if you want to see it). For people like me, the commercials are the only reason to pay attention to the TV during the game (I couldn’t tell you who is playing this Sunday).


I’ll still probably end up at a friend’s house to socialize and enjoy the Super Bowl snacks. I don’t know what I’ll be making yet, but I have a wealth of recipes to choose from right here on MNN. Here are some Super Bowl recipes you’ll want to check out.
