Seahawks Super Bowl excitement is reaching a fevered pitch here in Seattle this week. I don't even care about football and I'm excited... 'cause it's an excuse for a party!! And everyone knows that Super Bowl parties are all about the food and the commercials, right?? This will be our first Super Bowl on the SCD, so I've been scouring Pinterest for awesome snacks to celebrate and thought I'd share my favorite ooey, gooey, cheesey, drool-worthy SCD-legal snacks. The gang's all here...nachos, buffalo wings, blooming onions, pizza, guacamole, dips...I don't even know where to start.
Wait, did someone say NACHOS? I love the idea of building a massive plate of nachos on top of pork rinds, bacon or mini bell peppers. Topped with shredded chicken, ground meat, olives, cheese, guac, diced tomatoes, green onions, chopped cilantro, SCD yogurt or whatever you like...they will be every bit as indulgent as the ones that start with corn chips.
Need something else to stuff? How about MUSHROOMS? I'm drooling over the Brie Stuffed Shrooms and am loving the idea of a French Onion Soup stuffed shroom...and then there's always the Pizza Stuffed Mushroom...
And speaking of PIZZA...It is totally possible to make a satisfying pizza using almond flour or cauliflower for the crust...BBQ Chicken, Grilled Chicken and Blue Cheese, Market Mediterranean and Cauliflower cheese sticks all look good to me...I'll have one of each, please!
But wait, there's more...you didn't think I'd skip over chips and dip did you? Whet your whistle for crunch with some pork rinds...perfect for dipping into spinach artichoke dip, vidalia onion dip or cheese-y queso fundido. And what's not to love about a blooming onion??
Hard to believe that every last one of those decadent party foods is or can easily be made SCD legal! Who says we can't still enjoy our food? Just go easy if you're not fully in remission...I don't want to be responsible for a jalapeno induced flare. Still not sure which of these I'll be bringing to the party this weekend, but I'm leaning hard towards the spinach artichoke dip and the brie stuffed mushrooms. And I'm definitely testing out the pork rind nacho concept for happy hour tonight. And maybe the blooming onion...too awesome not to try. ;)
