For food, we served a slow cooked brisket and red beans. The brisket was huge, about 8 pounds, so I was surprised there wasn't any left at the end of the party.
We also made cream cheese stuffed jalepenos with bacon (I tried to make them a little healthier with low fat cream cheese and lower sodium bacon). You just pop them in a 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes. I made three batches and they all disappeared.
Mexican 7-layer dip (refried beans, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, shredded cheese, olives, and green onions) and caprese skewers are a party staple.
Our sweet friends brought spinach dip (that I didn't get a pic of but was absolutely delicious!), and the cutest, tastiest cupcakes and cookies.
The kids REALLY had a good time playing together.
And the adults did too! I admit I didn't catch any of the game- or the commercials . . . just the half-time show.
What did y'all think?
P.S. My friend Emily (Decor Chick) is hosting a sale on Joss & Main today. I know she'd love it if you want to check it out!
