  • Load them up with your favorite spreads, meats, cheeses and toppings Prepare the sandwiches the night before and wrap tightly in plastic wrap
  • Tortilla  wraps can also be made ahead and wrapped in plastic
  • Don't be afraid to lighten up the menu and put fruits and raw vegetables into the lineup. 
  • Bake chicken wings and potatoes wedges instead of frying
  • Use low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt for dips

Just For Fun...

Super Bowl Sunday is the second-largest food consumption day after Thanksgiving. Super Bowl party food may be secondary only to the big-screen TV!  WOW!

2 out of 5 Super Bowl watchers never watch another game all year.They just love being part of the fun! It must be family and friends, the commercials and THE FOOD

The first Super Bowl was after the 1966 season. The name came from a popular toy called the Super Ball.

At the end of the 2017-18 season, there are four teams that have never been to the Super Bowl.  Better luck next year guys...

Texans, Browns, Lions, Jaguars
