HomeStyle with Cynthia Bogart: Super Bowl Spread
Friday, February 04, 2011
Here are some great local places where you can virtually walk in and walk out with your feast in hand:
Venda Ravioli has great antipasto, cheeses and pre-made dishes. Call ahead for the platters or walk in and choose what you’d like. Go to their site and print out a 10% off coupon.
Drink: Sakonnet Vineyards Rhode Island Red NV is the perfect hearty wine for a Sunday afternoon.
Drink: While you are down that way, keep on going south onto Aquidneck Island and stop by at Greenvale Vineyards to stock up on a few bottles of their Skipping Stone White. It is perfect with your seafood menu!
Trader Joe’s in Warwick offers, for the most part, organic or additive free food. Not only do they have an aisle of frozen yummies such as black bean and cheese taquitos or spinach and mushroom quiche, they have a huge array of imported cheeses, salamis, guacamole, varieties of humus and salsas and chips and crackers. Since TJ’s is a huge company, they sell their wholesome foods and great prices, well below your local supermarket’s organics aisle. It is worth the trip.
Drink: Unfortunately, Rhode Island does not allow TJ’s to sell their famous 2-buck Chuck, but Newport Vineyards in Middletown sells their awesome Rhody Coyote Hard Apple Cider which is a perfect for TJ’s fare!
Drink: Narragansett Beer (Click here for their special ‘Gansett Chili recipe!)
So call your friends at the last minute and make a food run. They will marvel at your amazing hostess skills and you can sit back and enjoy the game!
