Super Sunday Menu

Super (Bowl) Sunday meant lunch at my house this year. We had five adults and two toddlers visiting, and I wanted to have an ambitious but rounded meal. I also wanted to include several Paleo dishes, but more traditional (high calorie) dishes as well. Nobody went away hungry, and the leftovers have been delicious and easy to incorporate in other dishes. The menu:

Chicken tortilla soup.         BBQ wings.         Chili-cream cheese dip
Rotel cheese dip.         Assorted corn muffins.         Sweet potato fries
BBQ sauce, ranch dressing, lite raspberry pecan vinaigrette dressing
Roasted pear, pecan and spinach salad.         Scoops and tortilla chips
Shredded cheddar cheese, sliced avocados, tortilla chips
Deviled eggs, dill pickles, sweet gherkins, stuffed olives.         Jalopenos
Black olives, baby carrots, grape tomatoes, lemons.         Salsa
Pumpkin cheesecake bars.         Sticky brownies.        Cool Whip

We have a two-level kitchen island, so most things fit on there, with the soup on the stove. The corn muffins stayed hidden in the microwave until after lunch, but not on purpose. The two hot cheese dips were by special request, and neither could be disguised as Paleo. The roasted pear salad was similar to Cheddar's Restaurant's recipe, with the vinaigrette as topping. I served so many individual toppings so each person could could garnish as he or she pleased. Good meal, great company.
