It's Soup-er bowl Sunday. 🍲 You didn't think I was going to let this day pass without making that pun, did you? 😅 I don't have a personal investment in either team this year but that doesn't stop me from exploiting the event for selfish purposes. I mean, it's a great excuse to eat your favorite treats and gather together with friends.
Like I said, I don't have a vested interest in this particular football game. 🏈As a whole, professional football isn't really my thing. I used to look forward to the halftime show but in the last few years, I haven't even enjoyed the Super Bowl performances of the musical guests. Now I participate in Superbowl festivities for 2 specific purposes: commercials and food. If you ask me, those are the best parts of any professional football game anyway. 😂
I want to know - What are your favorite football watching snacks? Are you a wings and pizza kind of fan? Or are you team nachos and burgers? 🍔 Dips and chips more your style or are you a sit in front of the tv with a bowl of chili kind of person? Just conducting an informal survey about what everyone is eating today. 😅
If you need a last minute idea for a Soup-er bowl meal - and no, I can't resist saying it like that - check out my recipe for Healthy Baked Potato Soup. Truth is, with a few simple swaps, you can make this soup as healthy - or unhealthy - as you wish. Put out bowls of toppings for everyone to dress up their own bowl of soup.
