Featured Holiday – Super Bowl

SUPER BOWL- It all started 38 years ago on January 15, 1967. The Green Bay Packers played against the Kansas City Chiefs. They played the first “Super Bowl” at the Memorial Coliseum in, Los Angeles, California. The first Super Bowl was watched by 61,946 fans at the Coliseum, and more than 73 million television viewers. Last year about 143 million television viewers watched the Super Bowl. This yearly competition has become a tradition in many households across The United States. Usually played in January…this year the game will be played on the first Sunday in February. Ironically, February is also known as Snack Food month. So, we have included some great snack recipes that will make any Super Bowl party a sure winner.

Oh- by the way…The Packers won the first Super Bowl.
