Tips for preparing Super Bowl snacks and finger foods

Break Out From the Ordinary
Will your culinary creations make the cut this year?
The pinnacle game of the National Football League is fast approaching, and football fans across North America are starting to think about the menu they will enjoy when Super Bowl 50 kicks off on February 7.
Much of it will be more of the same old that you would typically find on the tailgating circuit — chicken wings and chili, burgers and sausages on the barbecue — all paired with frosty cold beers. With such a significant sporting event that stands out on any sports fan’s calendar, consider upping your food game with a menu that separates itself out from the rest, but still complements great beer.
“Putting together a game day menu should not be a routine exercise,” says Desiree Sardo, director of communications and public relations at Sardo Foods. “It is a great time to flex your creativity as a host and offer a slate of items that will not only tantalize the palate, but are also likely to be more healthy and nutritious than the typical fatty and salty fare in which many sports fans are reputed to indulge.”
Football guests often like to graze across a spread of a variety of foods. Desiree’s suggested Super Bowl snacks and finger foods include:
·       Olives. Either as an appetizer or to snack on while the game is in progress, olives are a healthy, delicious alternative that will satisfy the salty craving usually filled with potato chips — without the cholesterol.
·       Shrimp. Take the standard shrimp ring up a notch by tossing poached shrimp with lemon, garlic and capers, then serving them with a basil pesto.
·       Crackers. More than a spread of crispy wafers, add some pizzazz to your cracker plate by laying out someJalapeño Buenos — feta-stuffed peppers sliced and served on crackers with kalamata pesto and cucumbers.
·       Gourmet pizza. Go beyond the pepperoni and cheese with a premium homemade pie. Try a Pizza Athena, dressed with tomatoes, oregano, garlic, and black or kalamata olives.

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!


While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both. If you are moving to a house that is not entirely ready, you have massive things to do. To make things smooth, create a list based on priorities.

When you make house changes before moving in, you can save your floor and furniture from paint spills. You will have an open space to plan the house interior. You can protect yourself and your family from hazardous odors and dust. There are several home improvements like removing popcorn ceil
