Thank you for the suggestions! I'm going to take some of these recipes and save them for future meals too! I decided to use the grill - its 28 degrees outside, but ok.
I will go with the seafood suggestions for appetizer- I'm putting shrimp on a short skewer and its marinating in a tequila lime vinaigrette. Those will be grilled and served with whole grain chips and tomato salsa. Then, I have chicken breast marinating in chili seasoning, lime, garlic and oil. That will be grilled and sliced thin for fajitas with red and green peppers and onions. Fajita toppings will be shredded cabbage, diced tomato and sliced avocado. Black bean and corn salsa as a side and I'm making a yellow rice (with achiote) as another side.
Dessert is Edy's vanilla ice cream (that is our splurge- love the Edy's!) topped with a frozen fruit mix that I got frozen at Trader Joe's- mango, pineapple, stawberry and blueberries in a simple syrup.
Strong coffee and Corona. And lots of football.
I will try to remember to take pictures before we eat it all!!
