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!
For this week’s Healthy Food Friday with American Express, let’s kick off Football season with some delicious (and healthy), Eggplant Parm Bites. Minus the Parm, but you can add that in if you’d like! 😉
Little bites of heaven.

I was selected by American Express to contribute to their Tumblr community. As such I was paid for my services, but all opinions in general and about American Express are my own.
