[Score with this Table]
Can't pass up the opportunity to create a super Super Bowl table! With everyone talking about healthy diets, I want to provide a half time meal that my friends would enjoy and go back for seconds.
To prepare for the party I develop my menu.
Vagabound Turkey Chili (recipe to follow)
Cheese and Crackers
Mushroom & Goat Cheese Crustini (recipe to follow)
Design the table.
Couldn't bring myself to put artificial turf on my table. I decided on a rustic table with referee stripes. I ran to the fabric store and purchased a 54 inch by 54 inch fabric square. A square works on most tables, just place it over a basic white cloth.
Go to your closet and find some cutting boards, wooden bowls and baskets for cheese, salad and bread. I have MacKenzie-Childs trays and some antique bread boards. The antique bread board, found at a flea market, is great for displaying an assortment of crackers.
The theme continues with a slate cheese board.
Serve your chili in a crock, stoneware, cask iron or an earthenware soup tureen.
Have the game score as a focal point. It's easy with a chalk board from Michaels.
