Getting Ready For GAME DAY Folks!
To be honest not too much into the game but into the food all the way. Mike and I are having a few people over very casual. However I am running into a dilemma - we've been eating pretty "CLEAN" +Clean Program lately so I don't wanna completely go "off the wagon" but that seems to go hand in hand with super bowl fare right?. So I am gonna serve a mix of healthy savory food with some gotta have big fat-so bad its good for you favorites!
Beer Wine Whiskey & Mocktails
Chips & Dip's
Poached Salmon on bed of Savoy Cabbage
Clean Green Salad
Roasted Brussel Sprouts
Lemon Bar Dessert Courtesy of good friend Deb C.
3 ripe avocado's - smashed
onion 1/4 med diced
cherry tomatoes - hand full washed & diced
cilantro - bunch remove stem rough chop
Tabasco - to taste
1/2 tea Olive Oil
Mix together and serve with tortilla chips - loving this brand right now found in the organic section of +GIANT Food Stores - recently came across on our ski trip to Big Sky and lucky us had it here at home! Gotta try it they are D-LISH!
Mediterranean Grilled Lamb Chops
6 center cut rib lamb chops ( I prefer Colorado )
5-6 large peeled cloves of garlic rough chopped
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1 Tbs crushed red pepper (more or less to taste)
1 - 2 Tbs dried oregano (place in palms and rub together - this releases the oils) drop in bag with everything
2 large lemons halved, squeezed and put in bag juice, lemons & all
Place all ingredients in shallow dish or large freezer bag ( my fave - easy clean up) mix together refrigerate for 1 hour or over night 9 tossing and turning in bag like giving a mini lamb massage every so often
Grill or bake chops your preference.
Serve with side Tzatziki - home made or store bought - homemade here. What did you expect people - "married to a chef".
So easy to make - get details in recipe post this week - working on healthy condiments, toppings and dressings to share with you all! My "Mocktail" on instagram feed - more to come soon - so yummy healthy and great alturnitive for you and your guest either non drinkers, desginated drivers or whatever and please serve in a pretty glass - makes world of difference!
