Easy Hawaiian Sliders Recipe

Hawaiian sliders are savory and sweet bite-sized burgers perfect for a quick dinner, game day or party. After visiting Hawaii for a few weeks, I’m obsessed with anything pineapple. We visited the Dole Pineapple Plantation and I can still smell the sweet scent of fresh pineapples in the air!  If you love tropical drinks and dishes, then you’ll enjoy this simple recipe.

I’m excited to have updated this simple slider recipe that has been on the blog for a while now. I can’t wait to make these burgers again. Bite-sized recipes are always fun. I think you’ll enjoy these tasty burgers!

Super Bowl Party Ideas

Every year our family throws a big Super Bowl party.  To be honest, I like sports but I’m not much of a sports fan. However, I do like parties! With 4 crazy-hyper kids that need to be included, I spend a lot of time thinking about food, games and fun.  Here are my favorite Super Bowl party ideas to keep the sports-lovers, haters and littles involved and happy during your big Super Bowl party.

 

SUPER BOWL BINGO

Bingo is a MUST! We keep kid and adult prizes for the first one to call out Bingo. This is anything from a special drink, candy, or a dollar-store toy.

SheKnows has put together a fabulous set of Bingo cards. Visit their site HERE then click on each card to print. It’s important to print each card to have variety for the Bingo cards. Print on cardstock to make stronger cards.

 

SUPER BOWL ‘GET UP AND MOVE’ GAMES

Just because the Super Bowl party is where you sit and watch TV doesn’t mean you can’t do anything else. We like to keep things moving for those that get tired of sitting (or the game, wink-wink), as well as the goo-gobs of kids we have running around.

This game is named FACE GOAL!

You’ll need two players and mini stuffed footballs (I’m not opposed to using marshmallows either). Have one player stand about 10 yards away from the other player and give them a bucket of small footballs. The second player will stand with their hands upright in field goal/touchdown position. To play, the first player must hike footballs (like hiking a football) underneath their legs into the the field goal of the other person, without hitting them in the face. The footballs only count if they go through the player’s arms, not above or around them. First team to hike 7 footballs through the field goal wins.

SUPER BOWL COMMERCIAL BINGO

We make a hard rule in our house that no Super Bowl commercials can be watched BEFORE the game. What’s the fun in that?! This makes commercial bingo even more exciting on game day.

PERSONAL VEGGIE AND DIP CUPS

I have done personal veggie and dip cups the past few years and love them.These keep little hands out of the community dunking bowl (let’s be honest–where have their hands been?!).  It also creates less stress for those that just can’t take double-dippers and let’s ranch lovers bask in the joy of their own ranch (add more if you want!)

FOOTBALL BROWNIES

I love to have something that the kids can help me with. They really like getting involved in all the decorating ahead of time, but I also try to find an easy “thing” they can do while all the adults are mingling. We have loved creating football brownies. These are pretty easy because all you need is a football shaped cookie cutter! Make your brownies ahead of time and cut the shapes out (or let the kids do this part if they can). Buy pre-made frosting in tubes and let the kids decorate as footballs!

Lady Gaga Drops Mic On Body Shamers With Perfect Response

My girl Lady Gaga absolutely crushed it at her Superbowl halftime performance this last week, but not without catching some serious flak from a horde of internet body shaming trolls who basically missed the entire point, as usual.

lady gaga twitter trolls

First of all, WHO ARE THESE WRETCHED PEOPLE AND WHAT SMELLY CAVE OF HORRORS DO THEY ALL LIVE IN? Shut the hell up, Twitter. You are the worst. 

Let’s get one thing straight, Lady Gaga is an amazeballs performer. Not only did she sing the whole thing while leaping off rooflines, dangling from cables, and doing some pretty intense choreography — she did it alone with no guest appearances, and no one to give her a time out to catch her dang breath. Oh, and she was wearing heels and a pair of rhinestone shorts and then dropped the mic and caught a football mid air.

via GIPHY

She wins everything. 

Lady Gaga’s response to the body shaming was as on point as her performance:

 

Lady Gaga Body Shaming Response

“Be you, and be relentlessly you.”

Basically, haters to the left. 

It’s apparently a hard and difficult lesson for the underlings of the internet to absorb that women don’t all have to fit into a certain box and that our bodies are not up for approval or dissection in any way. That’s right tweetiots, nobody needs your two cents so get out of your mom’s basement and get a life. 

Martha And Snoop Get Unlimited In T Mobile Spot

The love between Martha and Snoop will never stop making me feel like everything’s gonna be okay in the end, so you can see why their Superbowl ad for T Mobile is pretty much one of my favorites of the day. 

Give me more Martha and Snoop or give me nothing at all.  

Airbnb And Coca-Cola Dip Their Toes Into Politics

Airbnb bought a last minute Superbowl ad spot and used their time to wade into the current political climate and send a reaffirming message called “We Accept”.

From Airbnb: 

“We believe in the simple idea that no matter who you are, where you’re from, who you love, or who you worship, you deserve to belong. We know this is an idealistic notion that faces huge obstacles because of something that also seems simple, but isn’t – that not everyone is accepted.”

Not exactly subtle, eh? Read the entire statement HERE.

Coca-Cola decided to resurrect an old ad from the 2014 Superbowl featuring different people singing a multilingual version of “America The Beautiful” and ending with the tagline “Together Is Beautiful”.

When it originally ran in 2014, Coke caught a lot of flak, and considering the current immigration controversy, I’m sure things will stay heated. 

What’s your take?

Are these brands pushing an unfair agenda, or do you support their stance? 

The Superbowl Exposes Illuminati Avocados From Mexico

I lolz’d a few times through this ad for Avocados from Mexico featuring a bumbling Illuminati brain trust basically debunking or taking credit for every conspiracy theory on the planet. Big Foot, Area 51 (and 52, 53, 54…), the moon landing, they cover it all while wondering who’s letting out all their secrets, including the secret about Avocados being a healthy fat. 

Laugh all you want, but we’ll all be crying about $20 guac if that 20% tax on Mexican imports goes through. 

Audi Superbowl Commercial Inspires Sexist Backlash

Audi’s 2017 Superbowl ad has accumulated more than 5k comments on YouTube, many of them voicing criticism over the ad’s apparent “feminist agenda”. In their own description about the spot Audi didn’t mince words: 

“Progress is in every decision we make, every technology we invent, every vehicle we build. It’s our past, our future, our reason to exist. Audi of America is committed to equal pay for equal work. A 2016 report by the U.S. Congress Joint Economic Committee found that women were paid 21% less than men on average.*

This is a story of a young girl competing in a downhill cart race in her hometown. As the fearless daughter weaves her way through a field of competitors, her father contemplates whether his daughter’s worth will be measured by her gender through a series of provocative questions. It is a reminder that progress doesn’t belong to any one group. Progress is for everyone. #DriveProgress http://audi.us/DriveProgress


 

Is it just me or are the 2017 Superbowl commercials stepping up their game a little? I’m into it, even if all of the commenters on YouTube feel otherwise. Progress is for everyone. 

What do you think?
