This week Sunday Supper has paired up with Gallo Family Vineyards to celebrate one of my favorite days of the year. Nope it’s not my birthday, it’s not Christmas, it is that day of the year when every football fan gathers in front of their TV to watch the culmination of the entire glorious season of football. Yes my friends, the big game, game day, whatever you like to call it, it is the day of all football days! Can I get an amen my brother and sister football fans?


Like I have said in the past, football is almost a religion in our family. It is unheard of to be doing anything but watching the games on Sunday. Notice I said GameS. Oh we love our Seattle boys, and I mean love luvvvv lurv them. But we are all about everything football. We don’t even care who is playing, we will pick a side to root for and will do it with much enthusiasm.

We also have our traditions and superstitions. Well mostly I have traditions, that of course revolve around food, and Kevin has the superstitions. Oh yes, it is bad, he has been known to become a quick change artist during a game. An example is:

Game starts with his Jersey on…..we aren’t scoring…jersey off and t-shirt on…..we aren’t scoring………t-shirt off and sweatshirt on……Yay we scored…ok we are good.

Then if things start going bad again he will change hats, or where he is sitting in the living room. He has even been known to go stand in the kitchen if we happened to score while he was grabbing himself a beer or me a glass of wine. He gets quite the work out if it is an up and down game. It can be like running a marathon!

Me? Oh I am much easier. I am completely content to sit in my comfy spot of the sofa, wearing my jersey. I do however have certain foods that I feel must be included for every game day, and especially on the BIG day. One of those dishes is some sort of wings…or two…..or three! I like to make them, sweet, spicy, tangy, sticky, crunchy, dipping sauce, no dipping sauce….well, you get the idea right?

This week I decided to go down a slightly Asian lane by making one of my favorite restaurant appetizers, Salt and Pepper Chicken Wings. Butttttt take a little bit of a left turn down to Mexico and add the zip of chiles to them. Helloooooo, how can it get much better? If you know please tell me, because I think it is impossible. Oh wait, I know what makes them better, a nice chilled glass of Gallo White Merlot, mmmm yes! I love all of the Gallo wines, but I knew right out of the gate that I wanted to serve these with their White Merlot. It’s lovely, light, fruit flavors just begged to be paired with these slightly spicy Salt and Pepper Wings. It is perfect with everything from spicy Mexican (or slightly twisted Asian) dishes, to sweet and smoky BBQ.

So take it from me my gridiron loving gang, these Salt and Pepper Wings + Gallo White Merlot = a game winning touchdown any way you look at it!
