Once the holidays are over, there is a bit of a lull. We had so much light, life, and celebration. Once New Year's is over, it is time to go back to regular life. It doesn't help that as it is dark at 5 pm, we don't have the holiday lights to keep our spirits up.

This year, we haven't experienced too much bad weather here in the Hudson Valley, but it is still cold. That, and I feel like we haven't seen much of the sun. Winter depression is very much a thing.

And then a magical day in February comes that changes everything. It's a day filled with food, passion, and often grand gestures of devotion. The Super Bowl... Did you think I was going to say Valentine's Day?

The Super Bowl unites football lovers and non-football fans alike. The die-hard fans will be rooting for their teams and constantly checking their bets and brackets. The casual Super Bowl fan will be happy to watch all the commercials and eat some good food. And if you're watching on Nickelodeon this year, you'll see the famous Bubble Bowl song kick off the whole thing.

And what is the king of the good food? The chicken wing. Regardless of the sauce - Buffalo, BBQ, Garlic Parmesan, etc - the chicken wing is the must-have at your Super Bowl party. Who cares if you dip your wing in ranch or blue cheese, as long as you have a wing in your hand and sauce on your face, you are good in my book.
