Honestly? I don't care much for the Super Bowl. And it's not because I'm a girl, and I can't appreciate the game, and I don't know what's going on. On the contrary, I much enjoy watching football, and can follow it pretty well [it's not that difficult, to be honest]. But being at school, I don't have time to keep up. I actually kept up with NFL pretty well in high school [senior year is when I discovered that my father actually also watches football, so there was lots of bonding happening], but at college my interest has dwindled.
It may help that our team did atrociously my first year, and since then I haven't given the sport a second thought.
Now, I use Super Bowl Sunday as an excuse to release pent up aggression, yelling for a team that I really have no strong attachment to [particularly this year, since the Giants aren't playing], and eating copious amounts of game day foods. Chili, nachos, wings, pizza, brownies.
Well, that's a lie. Low-carbing isn't really conducive to enjoying game day foods. But we are having some friends come over in a few hours for a nice evening of potluck dinner, playing video games, and alternating between the Super Bowl and the Puppy Bowl. And even though I can't be eating them [though, let's be real, I'm going to try one], I've made some Oreo truffles for the occasion.
Maybe we'll even be able to keep our attention on more than just the first quarter with these in front of us.

So cute. So easy. So yummy.
Perfect for a lazy Super Bowl Sunday afternoon.
