Check out these lists if you happen to be in area with big entertainment names, zip line rides over the Mississippi and several locations for ice/snow sculptures plus some daredevil snow stunts.
But oh my, bundle up as the weather forecast is a chilly one with predicted single digits and below. Lucky it's an indoor game stadium.
Warm up with some tasty game day food watching the big game. Need to interject here wishing we'd be watching the Vikings in the final game.
The following recipes come from Cathy who provided several tasty appetizers for us to devour and indeed we did!
Buffalo Chicken Pinwheels
A high recommendation using Frank's Red Hot Wing Sauce
Smoked Salmon Dip
Mexican Avocado BruschettaA high recommendation-don't skip the addition of capers in this recipe as it really boosts the flavor. Bagel chips or a veggie tray also go well with Smoked Salmon Dip.
Mexican Avocado Bruschetta
And two Ever Ready specials being served up on game day.
