I went to a Super Bowl party yesterday. My co-worker Penny had me and a few others over. The food was delicious. Before we ate, there was a bunch of spicy stuff set out that people ate with chopsticks. The soybeans are edamame, which is something I’ve had before. At one o’clock in the picture below is raw ahi tuna marinated in what tasted like kimchi sauce. It is called poke (PO-kay). It was good. At four o’clock in the picture is Tako (TAH-ko). It is a kimchi flavored dish as well, but it’s made with cooked octopus. It’s a little chewy, but very interesting.
After that, we had many kinds of grilled meats. They were all delicious. I was stuffed!
Right before the game, the women all left and went to a movie. I watched the game with the guys. They were cheering for the 49ers, which would have been awkward, but I’m not a huge sports-watching fan, so I was not heavily invested in the game. I am glad the Ravens won, though
The commercials were pretty good. I think I liked the Oreo one the best. The Doritos ones were also funny.
From where I sat, I could look out into their back yard. They had birdseed out. I miss watching birds eat the seeds out my kitchen window in Baltimore. I had fun watching these birds, even though I had no idea what they were. There are a couple of varieties of finches. And every once in a while, some big birds would come out. My host called them Franklins.
