Super Food for Super Bowl.Desserts / February 2, 2015
When I was 19, I was the Homecoming Queen at the University I attended. Yes, I know. I did the whole ‘world peace,’ thing, and got really good at waving in parades. I’m not afraid to say pageants paid for a lot of my schooling even factoring in the cost of having my shoes dyed to match every evening gown, bathing suit and interview ensemble.
But I digress.
During the halftime at the Homecoming football game, I had to walk across the field and wave. Staging myself at the 50 yard line, about 2 minutes prior to the half-time show, I was very close to the action. Unless you have played football, you have no idea what it sounds like when 250 pounds of men, running at top speed and covered in gridiron pads, collide. It literally sounds like a car wreck. Yes, that loud…
Last night watching Super Bowl, I ached for everyone of them thinking about how much each one of them will be keeping a doctor on their payroll for life. Makes me happier than ever to we wearing an apron as opposed to a protective cup.
But I digress!!!
To celebrate the occasion, I created a couple of dishes that were healthy and satisfying, even if football isn’t. To honor the apple producing state of Washington Seattle Seahawks, I made mini-apple cinnamon ginger pies. And for the Patriots, I created a stuffed butternut squash with spinach, ham, and some New England cheddar cheese. T’was a stretch I admit, but at least they were Super yummy…and that was the “goal!”
