Un-Super Bowl Recipes

If I get one more email studded with obnoxiously gooey, cheesy, meat-filled man food Super Bowl recipes, I may be likely to throw something. I mean if I see one more Philly Cheesesteak Slider, Jalapeno Popper Dip, or Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip, someone may lose an eye. Why do we have to eat "Super Bowl Food" for the Super Bowl? Who started that anyway? Maybe I can persuade you to go another way with these pinkies out, healthy, and classy noshes for the big blokes coming your way this Sunday. I think they just may thank you for it.

Here's a lovely menu for your evening...

Start your guests off with Cucumber Sandwiches fit for the Queen of England. Not too far from their cousin Spinach Artichoke Dip, but so much more sophisticated and classy. Don't you think?

Beer and a Hot Cocktail Bar is out of the question. Diet water for everyone!

Everyone knows that Super Bowl should really be a white-tablecloth-fork-and-knife-diet-water-sipping affair. Let me suggest this very swanky Italian Wellington to wow your guests. Who needs a bowl of Pepperoni Dip thrown on your coffee table to ruin the flow of your dinner party? Never, ever provide foods that evoke finger licking. Shudder.

Typical Super Bowl Food is practically anti-vegetarian/vegan. Be an angel for vegans everywhere and make this very colorful, protein packed Warm Yam and Chickpea Salad. Because passing White Castle-like Sliders back and forth in front of them is very insensitive. Not PC at all. And you know better than that.

At the end of the party when your guests start craving ridiculously fattening things like Buckeye Bark, Knock You Naked Brownies, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Chocolate Chip Cookies, put your foot down, declare your Paleo Caveman Lifestyle and serve up a bowl of refreshing Frozen Grapes. I promise, they will all be your new BFFs!

Have a delicious game. Go Pats!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I too have had enough of all the wing-slider-beef-beer-Tex-Mex-taco recipes. I know you were speaking tongue-in-cheek, but at least the words were spoken! I love your recipes! And your idea for a lighter Superbowl Sunday!

We are not Superbowlers in my house. So it's usually just another Sunday. This Sunday, however, is my deceased mother's birthday. We're going to take my father out to eat, and remember my mother with love and laughter. She, being English, would have loved your idea for cucumber sandwiches! But forget the diet water, Mother's preference wold have been a nice cup of tea!
