Serving up a super feast

PLATTSBURGH — Everyone knows the Super Bowl is not just about football.

It’s a high-energy event that non-football fans look forward to as much as gridiron enthusiasts.

There’s the halftime show with huge music acts. The premiere of grabby new ads. And, of course, the food.

Grocery stores have been packed as people prepare for parties, large and small. Healthy eating is seldom a priority.

We asked Press-Republican Facebook readers what they were serving up for Super Bowl Sunday. Here are some of the responses:

Don LaPoint: “MEAT!!!!”

Susan Lamberton: “Nachos!”

Sue Pecue: “Wings, sliders, donuts & homemade ice cream! Go Peyton!”

Craig Rock: “EVERYTHING!!! We don’t watch the SuperBowl, we have a PuppyBowl party instead!”

Kim Mason: “Potato skins, Romeo wings, BBQ chicken pizza!”

Jan Chagnon: “Making cheese fondue with garlic bread cubes...a fruit platter and lots of wine.”

Kimberly Roberge- Reyell: “Michigans.”
