How can I have the ultimate Super Bowl party?
It’s that time of year again! Time to sit down with some good friends, good food, and enjoy the game! Super Bowl is almost here, and here are five tips to make sure you have the best Super Bowl party ever while saving on your electric bill at the same time!
1. Cook those hot dogs in a crock pot.
Who doesn’t love hot dogs? The thought of cooking enough to keep a Super Bowl party going might seem intimidating at first, but never fear! Grab that crock pot and watch your worries melt away (and save on your electricity bill to boot!). Not only are crock pots energy efficient, you can just throw all those hot dogs in, set it to cook on low for four hours and you’re done! They don’t even need water. Serve in a bun with fixings of your choice and revel in your happy party guests.
2. Spin those chicken wings!
Did you know that in 2018 it was estimated that 1.35 billion chicken wings were consumed during Super Bowl weekend? That’s enough wings to wrap around the Earth three times over! That number has been rising over the years, and no Super Bowl party would be complete without some tasty chicken wings. If you’re making your wings at home, put them in a salad spinner to coat them evenly with sauce. Of course, make sure the spinner is inside a bowl first so the sauce doesn’t go everywhere and make a giant mess!
3. Stock your bar well.
There’s nothing worse than running out of food or drink before the game is over. While many of your guests may be drinking beer, make sure you have a wide selection of drinks available, particularly for those who don’t or can’t drink alcohol. You can use old bottle labels to stick on coolers so people know what’s what, and don’t forget to freeze water bottles beforehand to throw in the cooler in case you run out of ice. If you want to try something a little different, why not try adding some Sprite and citrus to that beer for a Super Bowl punch!
4. Break out the decorations!
Good decorations can make an okay party into one you’ll never forget. Decorate the room with balloons, streamers and banners and coordinate the colors with your favorite team! Go fancy with team-colored linens and tissue poms, and if you want to go the extra mile, you can even get banners printed on the internet and delivered to your house! Want to make your Super Bowl party truly unforgettable? Set up a photo booth, an area where your guests can gather and take photos with all these decorations in the background. It’ll be a party they won’t soon forget, and the photos will last forever. Best of it, it won’t cost you anything on your electricity bill.
5. Cook your corn in the cooler!
While your hot dogs are doing their thing in the crock pot, throw some corn in the cooler! Depending on how many people you’re feeding, you’ll need about two quarts of boiling water per 12 ears of corn. Cover all the corn with boiling water, close the cooler lid and let it sit for half an hour. Easy, cheap, and saves money on your energy bill! The corn should keep for two hours as long as you close the lid after taking some out, so throw it in, sit back, relax and enjoy the game!
