Super Bowl Sunday is Almost Here!

Three years ago my introduction to this article was as follows:

Last year's Super Bowl champions, the Seattle Seahawks, are making a repeat appearance at Super Bowl XLIX. (That's 49 for those not fluent in Roman numerals).

As a native Washingtonian, I can begin to describe to you the level of excitement in this corner of the world. It seems that absolutely everyone is wearing Seahawks blue and green. (I'm not sure, but I think even our Pastor was wearing a blue and green necktie under his alb last Sunday).

According to bleacherreport.com here have only been seven teams to win back-to-back Super Bowls. One team did it twice. In chronological order, those teams are:

  1. AFL vs. NFL Championship, 1967; Super Bowl II, 1968: Green Bay Packers
  2. Super Bowl VII, 1973; Super Bowl VIII, 1974: Miami Dolphins
  3. Super Bowl IX, 1975; Super Bowl X, 1976: Pittsburgh Steelers, and
    Super Bowl XIII, 1979; Super Bowl XIV, 1980: Pittsburgh Steelers
  4. Super Bowl XXIII, 1989; Super Bowl XXIV, 1990: San Francisco 49ers
  5. Super Bowl XXVII, 1993; Super Bowl XXVIII, 1994: Dallas Cowboys
  6. Super Bowl XXXII, 1998; Super Bowl XXXIII, 1999: Denver Broncos
  7. Super Bowl XXXVIII, 2004; Super Bowl XXXIX, 2005: New England Patriots

Could the Hawks be #8?

Well, we all remember how that afternoon ended, don't we? (Some of us here in Washington State are still feeling the pain).

Last year our Hawks didn't make it past the second round of the playoffs and let's not even talk about this past season. But we'll be back next year!

In the meantime, there's food to cook -- and EAT!

We'll Be Watching

I can assure you that Mr. and Mrs. Carb Diva will be watching the game. My husband loves to watch football, and I love to cook ooey-gooey cheesy, decadent dishes, so it's a marriage made in Heaven.

One dish that I am sure will appear on our table is Tomato Macaroni and Cheese.

Equipment You Will Need

  • Large pot for cooking pasta
  • Colander
  • Large spoon for stirring
  • Medium saucepan
  • Whisk
  • 13 x 9-inch baking dish

Tomato Macaroni and Cheese

Ingredients:

  • 16-oz. dry elbow macaroni
  • 2 14-oz. cans petite diced tomatoes (DO NOT DRAIN)
  • 6 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cups shredded pepper-jack cheese
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Bring 4 quarts of water to boil over high heat in large pot.
  3. Add macaroni to pot; stir to keep from clumping together. Cook for about 6 minutes or until al dente (do not cook until done).
  4. Remove from heat. Drain pasta in a colander and return to pan.
  5. Pour tomatoes and their juices into the pan with pasta.
  6. Return to the stove top. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until most of the liquid is absorbed (about 3 to 5 minutes). Remove from heat and set aside.
  7. Next, prepare the sauce.
  8. Melt butter or margarine in medium saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in milk and broth until smooth. Turn up the heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil, then return heat to medium.
  9. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until mixture is slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
  10. Remove from heat. Add cheeses and whisk until melted. Pour over tomato-macaroni mixture and stir to combine.
  11. Coat bottom and sides of baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.Spoon macaroni mixture into prepared pan.
  12. At this point, the casserole can be covered and stored in the refrigerator to serve up to 24 hours later.
  13. When ready to prepare, bake in preheated oven 20 minutes or until hot and bubbling. (If preparing casserole stored in refrigerator, add 10 minutes to baking time).
  14. Remove from oven; let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

But Wait, There's More!

Here's another recipe that will probably make an appearance on Super Bowl Sunday.

Sweet and Savory Meatballs

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground turkey
  • 1/4 cup fine dry breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onions
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 2 tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 can Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatoes (about 1 large)
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce

Directions

  1. Combine ground turkey, crumbs, onions, egg, and garlic.
  2. Form into 16 meatballs.
  3. Heat large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil.
  4. Sauté meatballs over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned on all sides.
  5. Add remaining ingredients; cover and simmer over low heat for 20 minutes.

      Oh Bill, if not for my "reputation" I might do the same. I love to cook, but sometimes I just want to take the easy way out and plunge into a cheese coma. And yes, GO HAWKS!!!!
