For Superbowl XLVII (47) we went to Jen and Chad’s house. They somewhat recently painted one of their kitchen walls with the chalkboard paint. I’m sure this was for Quinn, but it worked great for the squares game!
No one really cared very much who won the game, except Chad’s dad, who was cheering for Baltimore because he used to live there. Since the game was in New Orleans, Chad and Jen had a New Orleans-themed party. Danny cooked chicken and sausage gumbo and crawfish etouffee. Jen made andouille cheese dip and jalapeno poppers stuffed with crab. Brian and Jill brought king cake. Another friend brought hurricane punch. To contribute to the party and to be on theme, I made praline cookies. More on that later!
The best part of the Superbowl this year was Beyonce’s halftime show. I thought it was really great. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. After the half time there was a power outage. San Francisco was way down and tried to make a big comeback, but Baltimore won in the end.
