Bring on the Avocado and Be Super-Bowl-Ready with Food and Drinks

The first month of 2016 is coming to a close.

Everyone is gearing up for Super Bowl Sunday. Do you know when the most avocados are sold? Many might say Cinco de Mayo. The answer is the week leading up to the Super Bowl because of all the guacamole that is made to feed the groups gathering to watch the game.

The January/February issue of Every Day with Rachael Ray featured an avocado smash on toast. Use a fork to mash avocado, minced garlic, and fresh lemon juice in a bowl. Try the avocado mash on crunchy toast. We like to snip some chives for garnish and a mild onion flavor.

Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect time to use a let-the-guests-serve-themselves approach to entertaining. It’s an easier way for the host to feed a group as you put everything out for people to make a plate when they are ready to eat.

Make sure the paper plates, napkins and cutlery are at one end of the table as an obvious starting point to start to move down the table of food items offered for the party.

Take a look at one of my recent posts over at Parade where you can find ideas from a New York City based caterer who has just opened a new food venture with Mario Batali in Penn Station. She shares her recipe for a beergarita to make a new cocktail for you and your Super Bowl party guests.

Read about how she sets up a sandwich bar with a variety of breads, meats, cheese and toppings. Guests can make their own sandwiches using a variety of ingredients so everyone has the exact game-day sandwich that they want to snack on while watching the event.

She also shares her idea for using store-bought or homemade tortilla cups, macaroni and cheese, and guacamole to make small-bite appetizers. So good!

Maybe you like Super Bowl Sunday for the teams that are playing or the food that is served. Read the tips over at Parade and you’ll have some great party food for your game day. Have fun next weekend with these recipe ideas.
