    Hello, 

    Keep an eye on the Trivia Tower, because we may be doing some fun challenges as we get ready for the Big Game on Sunday, February 12th. Who am I kidding, we already have the challenge up, put your helmet on and get in the game for the chance to win a prize

    After you answer the questions and relax with your favorite sports drink, we'd love to know how you plan on spending the big day, yes Super Bowl Sunday. Are you classic pizza and wings type or do you get fancy and fire up the grill? Is it an all day event for you or do you just tune in between commercials?

    Me personally, I've done it all and even had one year where I didn't watch the game. What's your game plan?

    Growing up, I could not care less about football. To this day, I do not watch the NFL during the regular season, but Super Bowl Sunday was always a big day in the Lawson household growing up, because it was the one day a year where each person go to choose their own snacks for the game - No democratic, group decision. The decision was left entirely up to me.

    I've carried this tradition proudly, and this year I am not sure what the main course will be, that's a game-day decision, but a new snack called Pop Corners will definitely be involved. AND if I go to friend's house or have people over, I will get two bags because a man's gotta snack.

    If things get out of control, I recently learned how to make a peanut butter fudge/syrup that is ideal for ice cream and I may break that out.

    Being an Eagles fan for decades, I plan on watching from the comfort of my own home with my family. I also must stress that I am not the typical Eagles fan you see on the news. (I would never throw snowballs at Santa, or throw opposing fans over rows of seats!)  :D

    Well,......

    My wife and I have pulled away from supporting the NFL in recent years, due to some of their hypocritical and double standard policies. Not wanting to make this a "controversial" post,  just stating our point of view.   My wife is a bigger fan than me.  I am a Giants fan since the early eighties,  So I maybe surfing the Golf Channel to see how my team is doing!

    @Nicole Dehn   My condolences for being a "Eagles" fan,  at least you are not a Cowboys fan!    Gotta love the NFC East  lol

    ​Likely be just my wife & I watching at home, snacking on things we should not be!

    @Matt Lawson  would you want to share that peanut butter fudge/syrup recipe? ​​

    @Pete Schroeder, honestly, it's super easy and that makes it dangerous. Just grab your favorite creamy peanut butter. I normally do two-three tablespoons and then drizzle a layer of maple syrup over the top, microwave for 20 seconds, stir, microwave again for 10-20 seconds until the two mix/stir easily, and pour it onto your ice cream.

    Ive seen some recipes that call for a 1:1 ratio, but I do less maple syrup because the final product firms up nicely when it hits the ice cream, but is thick enough to stay warm. I love it. It's a real glow up. Oh no...Am I about to eat ice cream for breakfast? Send help!

    Oh, and you can use honey, corn syrup, etc., but I really like maple syrup because it adds the most complimentary flavor for me. 

    I took inspiration from this recipe: https://bakingmischief.com/peanut-butter-sauce/

    I can just relate to other Community members' excitement, as I too plan things during FIFA & T20-WorldCup. Super-Bowl is mm..okay. I just stay updated with Ranking & scoring Board, Switch between channels during the game.
