Sweet Heat # 5

There's nothing like a great sports game on TV to make you want to get together with a group of friends to watch the game and of course eat some fantastic Game Food, and there is no better excuse for this than America's Super Bowl!

To be perfectly honest I'm not a huge sports fan.....I grew up watching and enjoying Rugby so that's about as far as it goes for me, however being married to a Canadian means whether I like it or not there is always a lot of hockey on TV as well! However what I do love about such big sporting events is the parties that accompany them and more importantly the food! You definitely need a great feast to be enjoyed with the game and of course a beer or two.

So since this month is the Super Bowl and the start of the 6 Nations Rugby Tournament (and of course the continuance of hockey and football (or soccer!) season!) I decided the theme for this month's Sweet Heat challenge is.....(cue cheer leading squad!)..... Game Food! That means anything you fancy eating whilst watching a big game will work as long as it is spicy! Chicken wings, Jalapeno poppers or even a big batch of Chilli all fit the bill perfectly, so why not invite some friends over, chill some drinks, make some spicy snacks and cheer for your team! And of course if you aren't a sports lover there's nothing wrong with inviting some friends over and getting out the Cards, Cranium or if you're in the mood....a little Twister!
