Can a 29-year-old guy whose idea of entertaining is chips and salsa and a keg compete with Martha Stewart for best Super Bowl party? The Fiscal Times staff decided to find out. So we sent Josh Steltzer off to the supermarket with a $200 limit to see if he could match—even a little—the “Doyenne of Domesticity’s” party prowess.
Josh got a little help from Andrew Lumby, who doesn’t care much about American football, but he loves to eat. So Andrew did the nacho melt, and helped with a few other microwave delicacies. In the end, Josh’s Super Bowl party probably exceeded the 1,200 calories and 50 grams of fat that are typically consumed during the big game.
- Nachos (made with Tostito chips, Hormel chili, Kraft Shredded Mozzarella, Goya jalapenos)
- Hot & Spicy Buffalo Chicken Wings
- Sabrett Cocktail Franks
- Shrimp Cocktail
- Genoa Salami (sliced)
- Provolone Cheese (sliced)
- Football Cake (yellow cake with chocolate cream icing)
Here’s more of what we will eat and drink this Sunday:
- 1.23 billion chicken wings
- 14 billion hanburgers
- 11 million pizzas from Dominos alone will be delivered
- 4 million pounds of pretzels
- 2.4 million pounds of nuts
