IMO, preparing a Sunday meal menu is more than fixing loads of food. As much as I look forward to enjoying football with with my favorite foods, storing the leftovers for another meal or two also plays a role in such a Sunday menu.
For me, small portions over the course of the entire Sunday as the games progress is the way to go. Loading up with one huge meal is sometimes the order of the day (Thanksgiving, Christmas, or if invited to dine at someone else's home), but for me at my home a BBQ sandwich with coleslaw on it may be all I'll eat during the first half of the 1st Sunday game and I'll drink my beers along through the day. By the middle of the 3rd qtr I may be ready to enjoy a small bowl of the Baked Beans and a handful of the Potato chips. By the end of the day/evening what food I've got leftover goes into the refrigerator next to the remaining coleslaw to be enjoyed as a future lunch or dinner. I have to live on a budget, and with that comes the need to not waste anything if it can be helped.
I'm already thinking ahead to week 3, I may go with a slow cooked Beef Stew (loaded with Potatoes,Carrots, & Onions) or Roast Chicken (prepared by my local grocery store) or I may go with Taco Salad Day (seasoned hamburger, chips, & loads of fixings). Of course there is always the not to be left out apple or peach or orange or etc. to help maintain a proper diet.
All this may sound like a ton of food, but if carefully planned, Sundays special fare can still be special for lunch on Wednesday too. Now if you will pardon me, there is a cold beer in my refrigerator that needs my personal attention. 😁
