We won't be having many munchies here today; Cliff really wants to lose the excess baggage; I'm making a feeble effort myself, and let's face it, munchies are the bane of any healthy eating plan. Oh sure, you can do carrot sticks and celery, but unless you dip them in something fattening, they're not very appetizing.
Rena, Cliff's sister next door, is coming over to watch the game. So is the son-in-law, with my granddaughters; my daughter is out of town on a business trip.
Son-in-law is also trying to shape up a little.
So I opted to make hamburger soup and chili. Both of those are healthy dishes. For dessert I made squash bread and a crustless squash pie. I'm making corn bread, too. Obviously, those who don't exercise portion control are in trouble; but at least I've tried not to make things too terribly tempting.
What I'd love to do with the chili, but won't, is make chili pies... you know, with Fritos and cheese and sour cream. Pardon me while I wipe the drool off my chin.
I might make some popcorn with my microwave popcorn popper, keeping butter to a minimum. That'll give us something to snack on during the game.
