A Make Your Own Taco Bar takes the hassle out of cooking while hosting a party & guests will love it! It's perfect for Superbowl, birthday parties & more!

For as many years as I can remember, hosting a Super Bowl party has been a tradition at my house.

Since I love everything game day, from the game itself, to the commercials, to the delicious dips, chips and tacos that come with it, throwing a Super Bowl party has always seemed like the natural thing to do!

While I love to cook, (I think that’s pretty obvious by the whole food blogger thing! 😉 ) I don’t want to miss out on the touchdowns, puppy commercials or half time show by being in the kitchen all day, that’s why I started hosting the “Make Your Own Taco Bar” at my Superbowl Parties a few years ago.

Gameday Grub

Saturday I had the great honor of hosting more than 20 Oklahoma peeps at my house in LA for the OU vs Florida State game!!!  In case you live under a rock (or aren’t a football fan) OU was victorious 23-13 and celebration was not lacking at my house!

Beverages were spilled, cheerleading uniforms were worn, country music was played and best of all… food was eaten!  Now there are upsides and downsides of being a food blogger!

Upsides: people come to me for recipe ideas (I love giving advice!) and I get to come up with new recipes to put on LLB. Downsides: I put a lot of pressure on myself to come up with an amazing menu for every event or dinner and I must execute it to perfection!

On Thursday I began my search for the perfect menu for Saturday. Trying to feed that many hungry Sooner fans with delicious, amazing food that can be prepared before game time… a little tricky! My food is important, but there was no way I was missing one minute of this game!  So here it is, the perfect “Gameday Grub” menu:

homemade taco seasoning, taco soup, spicy soup, avocado taco soup, recipes, food, ground beef taco soup, crock pot taco soup, crock pot recipes

Buffalo dip, chicken dip, blue cheese, cream cheese, buffalo chicken, recipe, appetizer

  • Pumpkin Cupcakes

pumpkin cupcakes, game day cupcakes, cream cheese frosting, football cupcakes, game day dessert, recipes, food

sloppy joes, gourmet sloppy joes, homemade sloppy joes, sloppy joe sliders, crispy onion sloppy joes, crockpot sloppy joes, slow cooker sloppy joes, gameday grub, recipes, food

Somehow I made all of this happen, while taking pictures along the way and was on the couch, beverage in hand, ready for the game at kick-off!

I hope this post helped you get some great ideas for your “Gameday Grub”!!!
