We are having a dozen people over or so..... I was going to do the very complicated Carmine's Lasagna until I scored a couple of big packages of hot Italian sausage for like $2 each. Now it is going to be sausage/peppers in one Crock Pot, meatballs/sauce in another, Carmine's Pasta Pomodoro, my father's homemade slipper bread (ciabatta), and Carmine's Salad.
A friend is making the Carmine's salad so this is going to be a very easy year of hosting Super Bowl Sunday. Appetizers will include shrimp cocktail, wasabi/cream cheese block, chips and onion dip (my favorite), and buffalo chicken dip at the very least. I'm sure my guests will show up with many more things to supplement the appetizer spread.
Desserts will be a cookie tray that my friend always brings and the Momofuku Milk Bar Crack Pie.... and whatever anyone else brings.
