Therefore, I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of this Sunday’s Super Bowl XLIV. While, I’m typically more enthralled with the seven-layer dip and humorous commercials – remember that hilarious E-Trade baby and the clown ?! - this year’s Colts vs. Saints matchup should prove to be a true gridiron battle.
Still, a potentially rousing game doesn’t diminish the importance of Super Bowl party food. Now, this comment might get me in hot water with Drew Brees, but – to me - the food is equally important as the game.
My rationale? If the game is a bust, you need something to fall back on; enter food and drinks.
So, I decided to inject my newfound Saints patronage into my party planning, resulting in a Ragin’ Cajun-themed soiree – who doesn’t love Cajun food? Fitting, as well, because those Cajuns are big fans of California heirloom garlic.
After some deliberate research – we take our food seriously ’round these parts - I uncovered several Cajun recipes, which are sure to fit the bill. Just a warning; with these spicy delights, there will be some serious perspiring, both on and off, the field. Make sure those Hurricanes are chilled.
Once Drew Brees sees my lineup, he’ll agree that food crushing ranks up there with field crushing. If they win, that is…
The good news is – win or lose, we still eat; Cajun style.
