Football fan or not, chances are good that you will be going to or throwing a Super Bowl party this Sunday. What else is there to do on a cold February weekend? If you want to enjoy the game without all the hassle of shopping for food and drink and then all the prep work, perhaps I can interest you in some of the homemade party items that we are cooking up for this week’s big game.
Let me start with time honored cold cuts. This week we are featuring the lowest price in years on Krakus Imported Ham and BelGioioso Provolone Cheese. At just $3.98 lb. for either, you really can’t go wrong on these two and leftovers will make for some delicious ham and cheese sandwiches next week.
When planning our offerings this year we went for a common theme...finger food. No need for flatware; everything is perfectly acceptable eaten with fingers only. We start with a freshly made foot-long sandwiches. Eat it all or cut it in half and share with a friend, and at only $7.99 each it’s a great value.
Bridget and Jacquie have been tasked with coming up with some awesome homemade fresh pizzas. I know that they will offer the traditional mix, but they also have some outside the box pizza ideas as well. Give one a try and let us know what you think.
Back again this season due to their success the last couple years will be our appetizer bowls, including wings and Santa Fe eggrolls. For sliders we have two varieties available, corned beef and roast beef. If it’s chips and dips you're looking for, stop in both the produce department and in the dairy where you will find a wide assortment of guacamole, salsa, and dips of all kinds available and on sale. We also have our homemade dips fully stocked in the case directly across from the deli.
One more department that seldom gets mentioned but is very popular on game days is our beer and wine section in aisles one and two. Andy and Jason went all out putting together some deeper than average price cuts for Super Bowl, and they threw in a number of items that can earn you 50 to 100 Prisco's Points to boot.
Regardless of who you are rooting for, the Eagles or that same team we’ve seen for what seems like forever, good luck and have fun. And remember this, the one and only time that our beloved Chicago Bears ever won a Super Bowl was back in the 1900s, and it was the New England Patriots that they beat.
Oh, and Tom Brady was in the 4th grade.
