The crème dela crème of football is here! How are y’all planning to celebrate your Super Bowl Sunday? If you’re hosting an SB50 Sunday Soirée, I’ve included a few savvy ideas that are sure to score the extra point!
For an easy and super savvy Super Bowl centerpiece, transform footballs into vases! Find a vase or glass that will serve as the hidden vase for your flowers. Simply (and carefully!) cut about 1” (the size will be determined by the base of your glass) off the end of a football to help the vase stand vertically. Cut a larger end to create an opening for your flowers. Secure the glass into the openings in the football, and fill with your favorite flowers!
Think bite-sized finger foods. Chicken + Waffles are one of my favorite pairings, and will make a darling presentation at your SB50 soirée! Of course, you can use pre-made frozen waffles; however, homemade waffles make a prettier presentation and are much tastier, too!
you will need…
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 ½ cups whole milk
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 generous teaspoon vanilla extract
chicken strips or Chicken McNuggets
In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder. In a large bowl, combine the wet ingredients: eggs, milk, oil, vanilla. Add ½ cup of the flour mixture to the wet ingredients, and combine with a whisk. Add remaining flour mixture to complete your batter.
Butter preheated waffle iron, and pour about 1/8 cup of batter onto the waffle iron to create miniature waffles. Cook according to manufacture’s instructions.
Top waffles with miniature strips of fried chicken or chicken nuggets, and secure with a pretty toothpick.
Chicken + Waffles would not be complete without the accompaniment of syrup! I like to fill small glasses (shot glasses work beautifully!) with syrup and serve on the side.
*Savvy Hint: Hosting a swanky SB50 Sunday Soirée? Don’t let Chicken + Waffles deter you! Simply serve on a silver platter…your guests will be thrilled!
Who doesn’t love BBQ?! To make these sandwiches extra savvy, wrap in festive paper & tie with twine!
