How ’bout that game!? Only in New Orleans…
Anyway, I hosted our family for the event because I had a neat idea: only healthy food! I’m working on self-control when it comes to eating, but it’s also nice to have healthy options, too.
First, I need to brag on Andrew: he vacuumed AND mopped our living room that morning in anticipation of our guests. I love him.
Andrea’s dad suggested homemade pizzas, and I ran with it.
I set out a prep station and then got the appetizers ready:
Chips and salsa and Cooking Light’s Hot Artichoke Dip with triscuits. Andrew’s mom brought a veggie tray.
I made a pepperoni and banana pepper Stromboli:
What is the difference between a calzone and Stromboli, anyway?
I made a sausage and bell pepper and red onion pizza with red sauce:
And I tried to mimic Pasquale’s white pizza, with onion and tomato and a pesto-olive oil sauce:
All of the crusts were a 50/50 white and wheat mix from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day.
For dessert, we had angel food cake with fruit:
And I made a lightened chocolate pudding from Ellie Krieger:
It tasted better than it looked, I promise! And everything is better with a little cool-whip…
Overall, I think we all enjoyed our lighter football-game fare. At least I’m pumped for healthy eating the rest of the week
