Easy Super Bowl Party Recipes For Game Day



One of the biggest pains is getting stains in plastic...well, maybe not the biggest, but you catch my drift. It's a nuisance to buy brand new Tupperware, only to heat up yesterdays left-over spaghetti and have it stain the container. White plastic bowls are the worst! My kids love spaghettios, and because I do not feel the need to heat it up on the stove -or maybe I could justify it because it uses too much energy- I will heat it up in a plastic bowl in the microwave. As fate would have it, all of my plastic bowls are white. They don't usually stay white for long.

Baked macaroni and cheese can be served as a side dish or a main dish with fresh salad. For those that prefer a little meat with their meal, you can add meatballs in slow cooker, chicken or bacon if you choose. This recipe is made meatless so vegetarians would also enjoy. Ingredients can be purchased at any local Gainesville grocery store.

Place the ground beef, pork meatballs, carrot and onion in a large mixing bowl. You can mix the ingredients thoroughly if you use your hands for kneading.

Avoid foods high in sodium. Cut back on processed foods; they are high in sodium. How easy is it to exceed the recommended daily sodium intake level? It is easier than you think. Suppose that you ate a dinner consisting of parmesan cheese (1 tablespoon), pasta with italian meatballs (canned), and garlic bread (1 slice). Your total sodium intake for the dinner is about 1326 mg. This amount is more than half of your daily sodium requirement.

No matter where you buy it, it always seems to be cooked to perfection. You can barely taste any kind of casing and the meat is flavored so perfectly that no sauces are required. Ask slow cooker chicken casserole ketchup and you might be thrown on the next plane out of Germany. You can literally buy one, eat it immediately, side step to the next vendor and purchase a second. Of course it goes perfect with a good German beer...but don't even get me started on the glorious taste of Deutsch bier.
