Our Superbowl Sunday plans

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.

Popcorn is always good and it's one of my favorite snacks. The microwave has made it very easy to have some in just a few minutes with no mess and no fuss. Enjoy your super bowl Sunday. I'm making another one of my favorites here. Spaghetti. It'll be my meal for a few days to come too. No party here at my house except for me and the dirty bird. He/she doesn't say much at all so it's a quiet day at my house.

i love chili pie! but any type of chili is fattening, the calories are outrageous! i do make it on occ, with orig sunchips instead of fritos, turkey chili, & lowfat pepper jack, & just a dab of lowfat sour cream.
had to delete previous comment i made due to typo. lol
have fun!
