Oh, the big day is here! Time for lots of screaming at the T.V., nervous drinking and indulgent eating while we watch our Pat's in their 7th Super Bowl. Since I'm a New Englander I actually want to watch the game, which means that I need relatively easy food for our Super Bowl party.
So for Super Bowl Sunday I'm making some ridiculously good (and somewhat healthier than wings) Mini Spicy Buffalo Chicken Meatballs since I can make them in advance and then just cook them off at the last minute. I'll also probably make a slow cooker Mac & Cheese, chips and homemade guacamole decorated like a football field and put out a veggie plate. Add some beer, bubbly, Pat's gear and good friends and you have yourself a Super Bowl party!
To make up for the Sunday indulgence we're trying to keep the rest of the week relatively light. So instead of a traditional meat-laden cassoulet we're making a vegetarian version and then a nice, simple fish dinner with healthy grains and greens. Then we're finishing the week off with a bit of Mexican flair....this recipe calls for homemade refried beans, which are easy enough and yummy but feel free to use low-fat canned ones if you're in a rush.
