It was Wild Card weekend, aka the first round of NFL playoffs and my boy started thinking about Superbowl Sunday - from the big plays to the touchdowns to which teams might make it there to the food. Yes, the food.
Last year, we munched on some yummy GFCF goodness, including trying Pioneer Woman's Shrimpo de Gallo for the first time. I think he liked having a spread of munchies that were all safe for him to eat.
So, grabbing a cookbook, he went to his room to make a list.
I was quite impressed that with each item he was interested in, he was noting which ingredients he could have, as is, and which ones we'd need to either check for gluten or substitute something to make it GFCF. This was a fantastic first!
Now, here's the surprising part - check out what my elementary school aged boy asked if we could make:
Citrus Spiced Mixed Olives
Grilled Trout in Grape Leaves
Wilted Escarole with Garlic & Potatoes
Seriously? Did he just ask for escarole?? Grape leaves? And trout?
I know my kids like great flavor and are willing to try new foods - actually, they usually beg for it. But, even my husband and I did not expect a Superbowl food request like this one.
As of right now, I have no idea what we're planning on making, but Yowza - I think my boy just scored a Touchdown!
What will you be having come Superbowl Sunday? And what teams do you think are going to make it there?Tweet
