Super Bowl 2010

This year marked the third annual Stepp Super Bowl Extravaganza. Todd's parents bought us a big screen TV when we moved into our house, so we thought, what better use for it than to have them out to watch the biggest sporting event at our house with some of our closest friends?

We had the perfect mix of guests: huge sports fans and foodies.

Speaking of the food...

We made The Pioneer Woman's "Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeno Thingies." Really, that's what she calls them. But they are wonderful! I used the recipe in her cookbook instead of her website. Her book calls for half a cup of cheddar cheese added to the cream cheese, but either version would be great I'm sure.




I say "we," but really, Todd's mom did ALL of the cooking. I just stayed close to the kitchen so that I could be the first to try everything!

Because you can never get enough bacon, we made bacon-wrapped chicken bites too. Yum.





We even made homemade sangria.




To make things a bit more interesting this year (especially for us that aren't experts on football), we created our own Super Bowl Bingo game. With phrases ranging from Offensive Pass Interference to Kim Kardashian Sighting to Commercial with a Monkey, it was so fun hearing everyone shout when they could mark a space on their board. I'm sure this isn't the last we've seen of SB Bingo!

We had so much fun with our friends and family. It's weekends like these that I wish we lived closer to our parents, but living out of town makes the time with them really special. What's great is that they love our little "Nashville family," so we really have the best of both worlds.

Our house is pretty quiet tonight. We're going to lounge on the couch and catch up on some of our favorite shows. It's the perfect night to be lazy at home because this is what is happening outside:




Let it snow!

  1. Good idea on the bingo! I wish we'd had something like that where I was on the Superbowl - the girls were bored and got shushed several times!

    And wow y'all have been getting a ton of snow in Nashville!
