Well the Super Bowl is next weekend! Are you going to watch the game or are you going to chill out and watch a movie? We are kind of fine weather fans here. We wait until the big games come on and then we pretend like we have been avid football fans all year. I know we can not be the only ones who do this. I think we watch the game because of all the excitement involved in it. There are those amazing commercials and some are the best ones of the year. I mean honestly they are at least as much fun as the game. There is halftime which is always a great show and sometimes very scandalous! Such a great time to entertain. Are you having quests over? If so these Crispy Parmesan Fried Tortellini are absolutely amazing. There is nothing better than a deep fried cheese treat dipped in warm marinara.
