Our main event will star mini hotdogs and crab salad sliders followed up with cupcakes that don't necessarily mean you have to be a fan of the team to enjoy them (I try be fair with decorating, although that orange may stain some tongues!!!!). 

Enjoy the game tonight and GO PANTHERS!!!!!!!!

Stay sweet!

PS: here's the crab salad recipe, just in case!  It's amazing!!!!!!!

1 pound jumbo lump crabmeat, picked over to remove any shell or cartilage
1 stalk celery, peeled, and cut into 1/8-inch dice
4 teaspoons finely sliced fresh chives
1 teaspoon minced fresh tarragon leaves
1/3 cup prepared mayonnaise
3 tablespoons sour cream
1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper 

In a medium bowl, lightly toss the crabmeat, celery, chives, and tarragon together.

In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, lemon juice, and mustard. Add the dressing to the crabmeat mixture and stir until just coated. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If not using right away refrigerate until ready to serve. 

Serving suggestions: Toasted hot dog rolls or Boston or Bibb lettuce leaves
