When the New England Patriots and New York Giants meet in Indianapolis on Sunday, February 5th, two of the world’s top teams will leave it all on the field, while we at home, well, we’ll do our best not to leave anything on our plates. It’s football’s biggest stage and tailgating season’s biggest feast. With an eternity’s-worth of time still left to prepare (ok, 11 days to be exact), there simply are no excuses for not bringing your A-game on Super Bowl Sunday.
Chili, wings, chips and dips are all locks for our gameday menus, but a bit of outside-the-bowl thinking has us considering more exotic eats like Pulled Pork Nachos, Crab-Stuffed Potato Skins and Golden Gate Chili Ribs. Then there are the food rivalries, inescapably brought on each time two food-rich cities are pitted one against another, always more exciting with culinary powerhouses like New York and New England. But how could we possibly choose between paying homage to the Giants with homemade pizza and repping the Patriots with a cup ‘o chowda? Simple, we can’t.
