What's on the menu?

Yesterday and the day before were spent preparing for Super bowl Sunday. Saturday I bought and ran around to three different stores making sure I had everything to make our evening a success. Sunday morning bright and early we prepped the turkey for roasting made queso dip, homemade salsa. Then we took a break, headed to church, skipped out early and came home to prepare the rest. So what was on the menu? Here's our list.

Turkey, rolls and condiments to make a sandwich if you wanted.
Cubed steak bathed in barbeque sauce and wrapped in bacon.
Chicken walnut lettuce wraps, vegetable and fruit tray.
Queso sauce with taco seasoned hamburger meat mixed in and tortilla chips along with fresh salsa. Plus two bags of sun chips and barbeque chips
Black bean salsa, stuffed mushrooms, potato skins dripping with cheese and bacon bits.
Artichoke heart and spinach dip with whole wheat crackers (The whole wheat part makes me feel better) Garlic hummus and toasted pita bread.
Baked fresh French bread cut and slathered in butter and mozzarella cheese to dip into marinara sauce.
Now for the baked goods; We had a sheet cake from Costco, chocolate covered marshmallows, rice krispie treats, mini chocolate bars, sand dollar cookies, Oreo’s, jolly ranchers, pretzels covered in white chocolate and ice cream.

I hope you all had a wonderful time celebrating the most watched game on TV or should I say commercials. We had over thirty guests to our party and loved every minute of the game and spending time with our friends and loved ones. The goal of this blog was to actually figure out the calorie count for each item, but now that I've listed what was on the menu. I'm down right frightened of what it might be. So suffice it to say, I think maybe Super bowl Sunday over took Thanksgiving on the calorie index by a lot. If we were talking in boxing terms I'm pretty sure it was a knock out for the Super bowl.

So whether your team won or not -- I hope you had a good time eating and spending time with the ones you love.
