A Spanish Super Bowl???

1 Feb

Why not?? I know Spaniards are really into soccer… American Football is only a US novelty. A big one, I should say.

I am not into American Football at all… but I am into watching all the TV commercials. The only thing I have been a bit into are the players.  I am dating myself here but I used to like to watch the Chicago Bears a bit when Jim Harbaugh was quarterback.  I even went to a game in Soldier Field – Thanks John and Dave!!!

(Believe it or not, I didn’t know until finding links for this post that Jim Harbaugh is currently the head coach for the San Francisco 49ers, who almost went to the SBowl this year!!!  I told you I wasn’t into it…  but he still looks as cute as ever!!!)

Last year, I hosted my friends Dan and Yvonne (who are really into football, I might add) with a Puerto Rican inspired snacking spread. Well, this year I want to do it with a Spanish/Mediterranean menu.  Why??  Because even though I am not into soccer either, I have now a big crush on Real Madrid’s goalie Iker Casillas…  and besides, why not???

You’ll see this is a celebration of Tomato, Spinach and Bread… Here are the options:

Spinach Croquetas

Sun-dried Tomatoes Stuffed Mushrooms

Warm Goat Cheese tapa

Queso de Cabra Tapa - KFC

Empanada Gallega

Empanada Gallega

Pan con Tomate

Pan con Tomate

And 2 Sangrias to wash it down – regular red sangría and a White Sangría
