Happy (almost) Super Bowl Sunday! Here’s what I’ll be chomping down on while watching the Seahawks play the Broncos and, of course, all the amazing ads. Did you see “Puppy Love,” the new Budweiser commercial that came out today?! So cute!
Now, just because you have allergies doesn’t mean you need to miss out on the party food! This recipe can easily be made free of all eight major allergens by simply removing the edamame. Chunky Chicken Chili is also the thickest and heartiest soup I’ve posted to date, making it a great selection for cold winter days. You can even cook chili on Friday or Saturday and be well-prepared for Super Bowl Sunday!
