However, since I'm a Miami Dolphins fan, I'll just be sitting in a corner eating my dolphin-safe tuna sandwich...
Melissa--The Pesto Hummus recipe from your cookin' up a storm blog is also a great one for game day.
YUM! Toby, I LOVE 7 layer dip... one of my good friends is known for hers.

Brian's Wife: Brian, you remember Jess.... the sweet girl who brought the 7 layer dip.
(Excited look of recognition from Brian)
This year I'm doing black and gold quesadillas.... basically quesadillas with corn and black beans. And lots of beer to get some carbs back after my 20 miler. Go Steelers!
