Evy’s Cajun Kitchen
It’s Super Bowl time and we all know that we can’t watch any kind of sporting event without snack foods – especially football. There will literally be millions of snacks being served throughout the day that Sunday, and I want to share a few of my favorites.
Our family usually just serves a few little finger foods and a variety of easy snacks during the day. Instead of standing in the kitchen and cooking big meals, we like to spend our time watching all the pre-game activities, commercials and commentaries.
With all that being said, I hope you enjoy the day and that your team wins. We will be supporting our “hometown hero” Earl Thomas III and his Seahawks.
