With the Super Bowl right around the corner, I feel like I should post something snacky. I’d probably be a bad food blogger if I didn’t, right? But I have to confess, I won’t be watching the Super Bowl this weekend. Football is the worst, you guys. The worst!
There are some sports that I kind of understand. Like soccer. Kick the ball into the net. Easy! But with football, there’s just too much going on. There’s running and numbers on the field and a weird shaped ball. Confusing! When we had to play flag football in gym class, the teacher never even bothered to explain how to play because I guess, like breathing and sleeping, everyone just innately knows. So I’d just run in whichever direction seemed appropriate and when it looked like someone wanted to throw the ball to me, I’d shake my head, wave my arms, and mouth the word “NOOOOOOO!!!!” And if I did, for some reason, end up with the ball, usually I’d throw it to whomever was closest to me, whether they were on my team or not. Because I did not want the ball. And then everyone would yell at me. Oh, they would yell.
That is what I know of football.
Then there are the people who say, “Oh, I just watch the Super Bowl for the commercials!” And really, the only thing I can think of that’s worse than watching the Super Bowl is watching the Super Bowl and watching the commercials. Because really, the only commercials I will ever voluntarily subject myself to are those “You bet your sweet As…percreme!” ones they play during Dr. Phil and the Kia commercial with dancing hamsters. Because: duh, dancing hamsters.
But there’s another reason to be all gung-ho about the Super Bowl. One that doesn’t involve football or commercials. FOOD! Glorious snack foods. This I can do. So I made some Jalapeño Cheddar Crackers. And they’re pretty darn good–not just for Super Bowl snacking, but anytime snacking. They’re cheesy, crunchy, and a little bit spicy. Did I mention that they’re easy too? Because they are!
