Healthy Eggplant Parm Bites

You know what I’m hearing around our home lately? That FOOTBALL SEASON is HERE. Sundays will be filled with a ton of guys (and some ladies, of course) sitting around the movie theatre/TV ready to cheer on their team and check their fantasy football nonstop.

Now, if you’ve been here a while, you know I’m not so into sports. Nothing personal, just never has been my thing. I was the artsy kid, remember? What I am into is hosting and cooking, which explains the vast array of game day eats/party snacks and appetizers on this trusty ol’ blog here.

What does football mean for me? People who come over ready to eat, also known as TASTE TESTERS. My favorite, favorite, favorite!
