I tried as best I could to eat healthy during the Superbowl. I think I did pretty good. I did have a wing or 2 and a couple of chips; but for the most part, I feel good today!
I found this website with some fun facts on it. I thought it was quite amusing how many people call in sick the day after, that there is a 20 percent increase in antacid sales, and that Superbowl Sunday is the 2nd top eating day in the United States right after Thanksgiving!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash salmon fillets and pat dry. Spray a 9×13 inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Arrange the salmon, skin side down, in a single layer. In a mixing bowl, combine the sour cream, mayonnaise, flour, lemon, dill, cream cheese, garlic and wine until smooth. Spread evenly over salmon. Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper and garnish with a sprinkle of paprika. Bake uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140 degrees.
APPROXIMATE COOKING TIMES FOR SALMON:
