round up.001

This post is a sham. I am not a “sporty” girl. I don’t watch sports or frankly know much about them. Karen loves to tell the story of high school football games. She was a cheerleader, my boyfriend Bo-Bo was a football player and I was at every game, in the stands wrapped in 5 blankets looking miserable. I tried to be supportive, but god, sports are just not my thing. Food, however, Oh food I know!

A sporting event where food is central. I am in. Here is my round up of the best superbowl party foods. Healthy? Yes. Delicious? Why would you ask me such a question! Of course. And also.. just decadent enough to work.

Alright sporty people, put on your jersey (or whatever you wear to a sporting event) and dig in to some of these goodies!

Best Ever Vegetarian Chili – Don’t scoff at this recipe because it’s vegetarian. This chili is so darn good no one will miss the meat.

Hot Artichoke Dip – This is only healthy enough. Plus the artichokes help your body metabolize alcohol. So there is that.


Artichoke Dip


Zucchini Fries with Avocado Dip – No explanation necessary here. Just make these. If you don’t have almond flour around and have no need to be gluten free use some panko bread crumbs.

Dips – Dips- Dips – These are 2 of my favorites. Romesco sauce, which is super easy to make and so yummy with grilled veggies or grilled shrimp. And basil parmesan dip – you can literally dip anything in here but artichokes happen to be my favorite accompaniment. Want more dip ideas? Check out this article I wrote last year to throw a superbowl dip party: french onion dip, edamame guacamole, white bean roasted red pepper dip, and dessert hummus!


Basil Parmesan Dip


Crunchy Chickpea Snack – Ditch the chips and pretzels and other unhealthy “fillers” Make these instead. Just do it (that’s a sporty thing to say, right?)

And for a little extra football fun… Karen and I went tailgating at a Packers game last year. Have you seen this yet?

    Everton bid for Stoke captain Shawcross

    Agen Bola Terpercaya Cityholidaybet Reported – Everton have made a bid to sign Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross, Goal understands.
    The 26-year-old centre-back, who has one England international cap to his name from 2012, is also interesting another club from overseas.
    The Toffees conceded six goals to Chelsea in a 6-3 Premier League defeat on Saturday, a result which has spurred Roberto Martinez into action ahead of Monday’s transfer deadline.
    Shawcross, a former Manchester United trainee, joined Stoke initially on loan in 2007 before making the switch permanent a year later.
    He has since made over 200 Premier League appearances for the Potters, becoming club captain in 2011.

    Manchester United make late push for Nigel de Jong

    Agen Bola Terpercaya Cityholidaybet Reported – Manchester United are making a late push to sign midfielder Nigel de Jong before the transfer window closes, Goal understands.
    United are set to confirm the signing of Ajax’s Daley Blind on Monday after agreeing terms on a €17.5 million deal with the Dutch club.
    But the Red Devils could still bring in the 29-year-old AC Milan man in a €10m deal, in a bid to further bolster their midfield options.
    Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman, first met with De Jong’s representatives in London earlier in August.
    Talks between Woodward and De Jong’s camp are understood to have progressed over the following weeks, with the player keen to link up with Louis van Gaal, who coached the former Manchester City midfielder while in charge of Netherlands.

    Real Madrid were horrible – Casillas

    Agen Bola Terpercaya Cityholidaybet Reported – Real Madrid captain Iker Casillas slammed his side’s performance against Real Sociedad as “horrible”.
    The Champions League holders raced into a two-goal lead inside 11 minutes at Anoeta before a complete capitulation saw them suffer a 4-2 defeat.
    Madrid’s set-piece defending was once again in the spotlight as La Real exploited the uncertain Sergio Ramos and Pepe, but Casillas has called on the entire team to improve their efforts following the collapse.
    “First, I have to congratulate Real Sociedad, who played a spectacular game,” he told Canal Plus.
    “Our team was horrible. From two goals up, you cannot finish the game in this way, it is not the way nor the attitude to move forward with.”

    Koscielny Wants Arsenal to Sign Classy Players to Turn Them into Title Contenders

    Arsenal center-back Laurent Koscielny is of the belief that the Gunners need to bring in a minimum of four quality players if they want to win titles next season.

    “We’ll need a goalkeeper, a right back, a midfielder and a striker,” said Koscielny who helped Arsenal to win the FA Cup last term, as quoted by Agen Bola indo11.com.

    “It’s important to have a minimum of these four players so that we’ll be better able to challenge over the course of a whole season against teams like Manchester City, Chelsea or (Manchester) United.”

    “Winning the FA Cup can change things and lead to other players coming.”

    The France defender continued: “Yes, we need to recruit a very, very good striker, because it’s important for us, for competition for places, because Olivier needs that to become even better.”

    “Having a striker who scores more than 30 goals a season can help us win the Premier League. Compared to the squads like Manchester City, even United, Chelsea. … You can see there’s a certain difference.”
