Did you have any big plans for the Super Bowl this year? Were you cheering for anyone in particular?
We are BIG football fans, but of the college variety and proud Husker fans at that! So, we don't watch much NFL ball, but do almost always watch the Super Bowl. This year, we were cheering for the Packers. How did we decide? Well, Green Bay has a former Husker player we like (RB Brandon Jackson) and The Steelers have none! Silly, but true!
We had a family Super Bowl watching party at my parents house and was asked by Collective Bias to try out some DiGiorno Rising Crust pizzas at our party! So, we stopped by Walmart to pick some up, along with our other party supplies. Just inside, I found this big Nabisco game time display complete with recipe/coupon booklets.
The back of the booklet have some good coupons good until the end of March. So, if you come across it, may sure you pick up a booklet! We used two of them today--one for crackers and one for Velveeta & Rotel. Once we made our way back to the pizza, we found lots of options for DiGiorno and at $3.98 on sale, the price was certainly right!We chose one Supreme & one Three Meat Rising Crust pizza. Big Brother sure was excited about all of our yummy food selections! (This picture cracks me up!)
I made guacamole and cheese dip to take over to our watch party--along with our pizzas of course. While I would have liked to see some more olives on the Supreme & a little more meat in a few places on the Three Meat, the crust was immediately noticeable as different (and much better looking) than your average frozen pizza!
They baked at 400 for just under a half an hour...and smelled oh so good while baking!
What yummy and fitting Super Bowl party food! Lots of chips, dips, and pizza! (and A LOT calories!!)
But, pizza and football really go together so well though! A winning combination for sure!
Everyone agreed that while the DiGiorno pizzas weren't as good as our favorite local pizza joint, they were WAY better than the typical frozen pizzas we're used to. We liked the crust was SO much better--both in taste and texture! DiGiorno Rising Crust will definitely be our "go-to" variety of frozen pizza!
The night was great! We enjoyed the game (you can see above that even Little Brother was into it!), the Packers victory, the pizza selection, the halftime show, and some of the commercials. The Volkswagen ones were definitely the crowd favorite at our house!! If you've been to the Mom Endeavors facebook page, you know already that we love the Force commercial. But, the biology teacher in me also LOVED the beetle commercial! And, Big Brother LOVES them both (we've had to watch them numerous times). You should have seen him rock out to "Black Betty" and that speedy little beetle--so cute!
Did you have a favorite? Did you make anything fun for dinner?
