According to Rita Hodges, County Extension AgentFamily and Consumer Sciences in Texas, Superbowl Sunday is the second largest food consumption day of the year in the U.S. behind Thanksgiving! Wow! So what does everyone do on the second largest food consumption day of the year? Cook and bake, I say! From hearty stews and burgers to spicy wings, decadent desserts and fancy cocktails, Superbowl Sunday brings out the foodie in everyone. But as Ms. Hodges reminds us all, with more food prep comes more opportunities for a food safetyfumbleat home.

Being a New Englander, well, I can’t help myself, I just have to say, “Go Pats!”
