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! 

Today's Menu


Beer Wine Whiskey & Mocktails
Chips & Dip's
Cheese Board
Poached Salmon on bed of Savoy Cabbage
Clean Green Salad
Roasted Brussel Sprouts

Lemon Bar Dessert Courtesy of good friend Deb C. 

Guacamole 
3 ripe avocado's - smashed

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
loriannmd, cheers, lamb chops, mediterranean cooking, colorado lamb, dmv, Super Bowl, football, grilling, game day, clean program, loriannmd, mike tauraso, frederick, best of frederick,


6 center cut rib lamb chops ( I prefer Colorado )  
5-6 large peeled cloves of garlic rough chopped
1/2 cup Olive Oil
S&P
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!
