Karen’s condo building sure knows how to throw a party! [I say that surprised because many of the residents are in their upper years of life 🙂 ] They had tons of food – this photo was taken before many of the potluck dishes showed up (we thought this was it and they just kept appearing!) There were 5 kinds of sandwiches, bean dip, shrimp, guac + chips, broccoli salad, my spinach salad, raw veggies + ranch, coleslaw, wings, chicken tenders, cornbread, pickles, potato salad, oyster crackers, chocolate cake, cookies and three flavors of homemade strudel.
These pastrami sandwiches were overnighted on dry ice from Manhattan!
A sandwich mountain!!
I had a ham and cheese sandwich and half of a pastrami one, pickles, a dollop of potato salad, half a plate of my spinach salad and 3 shrimp. I also had about 10 little scoop chips, some with guac, as I stood around a chatted. [That’s a big dinner size plate]
To finish off I had half of this ham roll, a small square of cornbread (Trader Joe’s mix and SO GOOD!) and about half a cup of the flaky apple + currant strudel! [This is a dessert size plate].
Tomorrow’s going to be an early one. The husband agreed to go with me to the gym at 5 (body clock) so we’ll be biking. We went for a walk this afternoon to the grocery store for some fruit – it was 60* and gorgeous out! It’s not going to last though, as the forecast says highs in the 40s again by mid-week.
We were chatting with the folks there so I haven’t gotten to watch much of the game or see many commercials, so I’m going to wrap this up so I can catch some of halftime! I’m routing for the Cardinals because they are North Carolina’s state bird

hey , Kath! all that food looks spectacular! Shrimp is my favorite–glad you had a good time!
yay cardinals! =)
The potluck looks soooooo good! Sandwiches over nighted from NY, v. impressive =) I hope they were as good as they look.
Looks great! What’s was in your spinach salad? Looks good but simple.
I’m routing for the Cardinals, too! Mostly because that stupid Pittsburg Pierogi pizza won the Boboli contest!
OMG, I love pastrami sandwiches – but I love Reuben’s more!
That is a very nice spread!!
Mara @ What's For Dinner? says
What a great spread!!!
Those pastrami sandwiches look amazing!
Courtney (The Hungry Yogini) says
Love the dinner spread! Sandwiches are the best =)
Wow, I would be quite happy with the sandwich spread! Go Cards!
Sorry, I’ve gotta root for the Steelers! Big Ben went to my college (Miami University!) when I was there, so I’ve gotta root for my fellow alumnus!

Looks like a massive party spread!
I’m so jealous it was 60 there today. When I ran this morning it was 34. I froze for the first two miles!!
Fun party! Look at all that foooood 😀
Yum, that looks like a great party!
Wow, that’s a nice superbowl spread! Unlike many people that just have chips and wings. I’m glad there were healthy choices. Still, I probably wouldn’t have resisted the strudel!
Those mounds of sammies look SO good, and I don’t even like deli meat! Enjoy the rest of the night! Oh, and Kath, your blog is one of the first I ever read, over a year ago. I’ve finally started my own! Check it out if you get a chance! snackface.wordpress.com
I have missed some of the commercials! I am going to have to check out youtube for them!
wow, I would be in trouble with all that food lying around. delicious!
Those sandwiches look delicious. So glad you had a fun night out for the Superbowl 🙂
Looks like a nice superbowl party!
For my “party” (just the hubs and I), I made your BBQ baked tofu, kale chips, and baked sweet potato fries. We had never eaten tofu at home or kale but it was great! You inspired me to make my own tofu and eat kale! Thanks
Wow what a spread! Looks awesome Kath!
Looks like a great spread with lots of options for everyone 🙂
overnighted pastrami?!!!!!!!!! Whoa!!! That’s hardcore 🙂
That spread looks yummy! We went to a big party and now I am wishing that I had not eaten so much bad for me food/beer. Do you have any tips for getting back on track after a weekend where you maybe fell off the wagon?
GUACAMOLE!!! Holy yum.
Not a sliver of chocolate cake/cookies???
Beadie @ What I Ate Yesterday says
all the food looks great!
I was rooting for the Cards, too 🙁 They almost had it!
Yes, people over fifty do know how to party and cook good food! We were partying when ya’ll we just babes in arms (and before.)
Fingers crossed for the tote bag!!
Marlow, I think you have to post your entry for the contest under that set of comments.
Lucky you. That looks much better than the food at the Superbowl party I attended.
