How was your weekend? We had 16.7″ of snow. It was the third biggest on record in our city. It was enough to close everything around here and put a damper on many SuperBowl Parties. We went ahead and threw caution to the wind and drove our 45 minute trek to the family party anyway. Wise Hubby threw a shovel, a second set of gloves, boots, hats, scarves, coats and clothes in the car. I took a case of water, all the appetizers, snacks, and beer. We weren’t going to go unprepared for a single scenario! Here in Michigan they were prepared to keep the roads moving. Our trip coming and going was uneventful and smooth. We were met with a Seafood Spread of grilled salmon, two kinds of scewered grilled shrimp, and these great scallops marinated three ways. We are going to be eating SuperBowl food for a week! It pays to be prepared! (This was originally published in February 2015)
