It was all about the food and the commercials

So who were you rootin' for? Packers or Steelers?

Me...neither. I was in it for food and the commercials. Now the boys in my house...Packers. So it was a happy home last night.

And last year we started something different for our family. Instead of going to someone else's house or having everyone over here for the super bowl. We just stay home and have our own party.

We have what we call junk food night for dinner and the four of us sit and watch the game and the commercials.

Last night on the dinner menu....

Rachel Ray's guaca salsa salad....YUM-O!

Queso with sausage

Last but not least, HOT McDonald's french fries. Nothing says junk food like smoking hot McD's fries with a ton of ketchup.

Oh and a few of my favorite commercials....

This is just precious.

And this one made me laugh out loud!

And since we are talking about the Super Bowl. Let me just put this out there. Black Eyed Peas rocked the half time show. Christina Aguilera not so much. I have to admit I was busy making the guaca salsa salad and missed the live performance. When I saw everyone's posts on Facebook I just knew I had to Youtubed it.

I was so mad after watching the video clip. I'm sure she was nervous. But it's our National Anthem. My heart swells with pride each and every time I hear it. And when some one who lives in our country botches that song......OK enough. It's over and done and done badly.

But did I mention the Black Eyed Peas rocked???

Really? I thought the Black Eyed Peas were terrible?
That salad looks SO good : )
Since I live in Pennsylvania we were sort of rooting for the Steelers : ) So many of my blog friends love the packers. Don't tell anyone but I basically can't stand football : )

I think I am just NOT a Black Eyed Peas fan, so I wasn't impressed with halftime.

Loved the commercial for Bridgestone tires with the beaver and the one with the black beetle! So CUTE!

I wasn't for either team either!

The food looks delicious! I made my queso with sausage, too ~ I love the added flavor!! I was going for the Packers last night, but I'm normally not a fan. I actually didn't see much of the game, but I enjoyed some good conversation! I loved the reaction of all the guys in the room at the end of the GoDaddy commercial with Joan Rivers!! lol! :D
