How Are You Celebrating Super Bowl XLV Weekend?

With Super Bowl XLV this weekend, many of us don’t have tickets to the big game. It can be a lot of fun to watch the game on the screen whether it is at home or a winery. Check with your friendly neighboring winery to see if they have a large screen TV.

If you will be watching the game at home, you will want to prepare some nibbles whether it is Port Pecans, Sherried Walnuts or Crab Stuffed Mushroom Caps (recipe below.) The recipes for Port Pecans and Sherried Walnuts are located on the Wine Trail Traveler recipe section.

Enjoy Super Bowl Weekend!

Cheers, Kathy
