The Final Wind Down to Superbowl 50 (2016)

In less than five hours the house will be filled with guests.  The week has been a whirlwind of preparations and yet surprisingly calm.  As with most of our entertaining, I relied on the tried and true dishes then added in a couple new dishes that hopefully will become favourites.  Yesterday, I made the pulled pork in the oven so the house smelled delicious during the long, slow cooking.  Today is more of assembling the dishes for serving although I still have the dips, vinaigrette, popcorn and cornmeal muffins.  It is going to be a busy morning but the final preparations for our Superbowl 50 Party should go smoothly!
