I've read somewhere that the typical American consumes more calories on Superbowl Sunday than on Thanksgiving Day. Seeing what's typically on the table at game time, I believe it. While, in my book, Game Day has to involve wings and such, there can also be some veggie-based components present. So if we have some wings, and then some veggies... it all balances out in the end, right?

Valerie does a pretty great job every year in putting together a box that supports game day snacks. I'm positive this year won't be an exception. In all the years in which I've been a crop share member, there has always been at least an avocado or two in the box. So, let's talk about guac. This is the easiest of the game day items.

You can also have some more creative variations, too. Try adding a bit of tequila, grilled corn, or some tart pomegranate or green apple to cut the creaminess of the avocado. Everything is better with bacon, right? Here is another idea that straddles the line between salsa verde and guacamole, but is utterly amazing.
