Here in the Bay Area, everybody is seriously excited for Sunday's 49ers game versus the Giants. But everybody knows that no football game can be fully enjoyed without good food and drinks. Here's an idea for a simple menu that is perfectly complemented by the cold weather we seem to be having all over the country.
Have friends and family come over to your place and throw the game on TV. Serve lime shandies (for something slightly more exciting than just a beer) and spicy cheese diablo wafers to start. Crock-Pot beef chili can be made in advance and will warm everybody up from the inside out. A refreshing seasonal citrus salad with avocado is the perfect side dish to this hearty meal, and classic chocolate brownies will keep everyone smiling, no matter the outcome of the game. Who will you be rooting for — and what will you be eating?
