It’s on in Seattle. I mean really on. I’ve lived in towns with championship teams, but I’ve never seen more rabid fans than Seattle.

So what are you feeding that hungry horde on Sunday? Skip that boring and unappetizing plate of cold cuts from the big chain grocery store. Instead, how about keeping it traditional but doing it really, really well?

Imagine firing up your grill for Asian sticky ribs. Or replacing a bottle of mass market barbecue sauce with homemade Whiskey BBQ sliders.

Whatever you choose, make sure your table has fresh, colorful ingredients. Your guests will appreciate dips and spreads like roasted pepper hummus or a flavorful olive tapenade rounding out the table with your favorite tapas.

I’m mixing up Rick Bayless’ margaritas for a crowd, but keep an eye on the alcohol consumption. They pack a punch, so be careful unless you plan to keep entertaining guests until Monday brunch.
