Super FOOD (because it's all about the ads and the food isn't it?)


Many of us act like we're really into the Super Bowl, but for many of us, it's all about the ads and the food. How many other Sundays do you get together with family and friends, and sit around eating all afternoon and evening with the TV on? I pulled a seriously dingy move this year, and offered to be the point person for scoring theater tickets for a show that's hot, and equally coveted dinner reservations, to celebrate my mom's big birthday. I couldn't believe my good fortune to be able to get both on February  5th, just one day after her BIG day! I was the golden child. Or not. But come on, it's not like I have the Superbowl listed in my (paper) calendar. It wasn't until friends invited us over for one of those fun family gatherings (to sit around catching up with friends and eating all afternoon/evening, with the TV on) that I realized I was the proud holder of 4 theater tickets and a dinner reservation...on Super Bowl Sunday. So, I'm not whipping up any of these vittles this year, but if I was going to host, or offer to bring something to our friend's party, this would be my list of go-to healthy party foods. Most, if not all, can be made ahead so this is another one of those "throw a party and get to enjoy it too" posts...since no one wants to be stuck in the kitchen when those great ads come on!


Dip into one of these...

A platters of something fresh...

Pieces of something delicious...

And entrees that will fill and wow a crowd...
