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.

Go Pat’s!
