Super Bowl under the white tent

I will say it again–there is no shortage of group activities as a member of the Royal Marsh Harbour Yacht Club.  On Super Bowl Sunday those engineer types members set up the big screen and hooked up to a cable tv/internet source to carry the game between the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles for the whole club to watch together.  We didn’t have a favorite team so we were there mostly for the camaraderie and the food.  However, the game was very entertaining.

The picnic tables were heavy laden with appetizers at 5:00.  This has been the best selection of food since we have arrived.  I suggested we start a cook book just for appetizers.  No one objected and handed that responsibility over to me–volunteers are always needed!

All boaters were asked to bring a heavy  hors d’oeuvres to share before our hot dog dinner.  I decided to try my hand at a pizza monkey bread.  Something like that cinnamon sugar monkey bread that is baked in a bundt pan but with pizza ingredients.  I don’t have a bundt pan on board so I had to compromise.  The same recipe can be prepared in a casserole pan.  It tastes just as good, but presentation is a little different.  There were no leftovers.

  1. 8 ounces sliced turkey pepperoni, cut into quarters
  2. 2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
  3. 1/3 cup olive oil
  4. 2-4 TBS sun dried tomatoes (not in oil) chopped
  5. 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  6. 2 tubes of pizza dough
  7. 4 TBS chopped basil
  8. 2 TSP garlic finely minced
  9. 2-3 cups pizza sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x11 pan with cooking spray
  2. Open pizza roll packages but leave in the tube form.
  3. Cut into 8 equal round slices, divide each slice into 4 pieces
  4. Place pizza pieces, cheeses, pepperoni, sun dried tomatoes and seasonings in large bowl.
  5. Mix well with hands. Try to do this in a cool place as the pizza dough gets sticky
  6. Pour the olive oil over all ingredients and gently fold together coating all dough.
  7. Drop into prepared piece by piece to evenly distribute all ingredients.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes until lightly brown on top and done in the middle.
  9. Place warmed pizza sauce in separate bowl for dipping.
  1. If you don't have a bundt pan, you could place a small oven proof bowl in the 9x11 pan before dropping the dough bites into the pan. Cook with the small bowl in the pan. Once everything is done, pour the pizza sauce in the small bowl.
Meandering Joy




After all those appetizers were devoured, a dinner of hot dogs and all the fixings were brought out at halftime.  We were also tempted by a nice selection of boat baked goods for dessert. 


There were a few interruptions in the streaming of the game–it always seemed to be at a crucial point in plan.  No one was too upset…but some of the die-hard fans left at half time to watch the game on their boats.  It’s the Bahamas–things don’t always work as we have come to expect in the U.S.
