12 super gras foods

so i hear you right now…

“super gras? ummmmm emily i think you’re going more cuckoo than you already are.”

and to that i say, “negative ghost rider.”

see in case you didn’t know, i live in south louisiana and this is the time of year for mardi gras. which also just so happens to be coinciding with a little football game at the same time. so apparently everyone around here decided to start calling the three weeks that mardi gras and the superbowl span, “super gras”.

original i know.

so while everyone is telling you about their dishes perfect for a superbowl party, i’m going to one up that… these dishes would work perfectly for a superbowl party OR a parade party. i’ve tried to narrow them down to 12 manly and/or really easy dishes.

appetizers / mains

superbowl appetizers / mains

  1. baked potato dip – so super simple and so freaking addictive.
  2. chela’s corn dip – again, so super simple and bonafide crack.
  3. spicy dr. pepper pulled pork – although this might take a little bit of time, simple, delicious and totally party worthy.
  4. aunt leah’s cole slaw – if you’re going to have pulled pork, one of staple sides is cole slaw, and this is one of my favorites.
  5. pulled pork nachos – again, if you’re going to be making pulled pork, do yourself a favor and make some nachos. trust me.
  6. baby back ribs – these are made in the oven so you can set it and forget it.

drink / desserts

superbowl drink / desserts

  1. cherry lemonade – so far the only drink to make it to the blog but damn delicious. spike it with some vodka if you so desire (and you totally do).
  2. chocolate stout cookies – ummm the superbowl is a football game so what better than beer and chocolate?
  3. orange cream cookies – seriously. about the easiest cookies EVER and your new most requested cookies.
  4. s’mores bars – really is there anything better than melty chocolate and marshmallow creme? i think not.
  5. bacon caramel brownie – the most manly brownie. i mean chocolate and bacon are meant to be best friends.
  6. salted caramel shortbread crumble – using store bought caramel makes these super yummy and easy.
