I love making quick and easy meals for the big game because I don’t think it’s possible for me to invite over family and friends and not make sure everyone has something to enjoy while watching the game.  I think our friends and family would go into shock if they didn’t have plenty to munch on when they came to our house.   Honestly, I look forward to waking up on game day and preparing food most of the day.
