No cheeseburgers today.
No fuck its either.
I HAD a bitch and a half, but after some very kind words from my friends AND a massage that was absolutely heaven sent, I am a way more calm person.
Which is good.
Because the person upsetting me wanted just that...me upset.
Which is why I'm not gonna bitch about it.
I'm not giving in.
So....instead of a super sweet dessert today, we're going in another direction.
Now, I am not at all trying to be patronizing, but I know that many of you aren't from around here, and what you know as football is something completely different.
And that is TOTALLY cool!
BUT...just in case you were wondering...click HERE!
Much like NFL football, except with some different rules, and theoretically, no one gets paid.
At both types of games (pro and college) there are tailgaters.
What's tailgating? Surely this can not be the only place on Earth where we get together in the parking lot of an arena several hours prior to kick off and eat grilled foods and drink a ridiculous amount of booze?? Well, just in case, CLICK HERE.
And you guys are in luck because I unearthed my Game Day recipe book!
I promise, you will dig it.
We shall first start with this one...
2 bacon strips, diced
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 medium red potato, cubed
1 small carrot, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
1/2 cup water
3/4 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
1 cup milk
2/3 cup frozen corn
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2-1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cold water
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings. In the drippings, saute onion until tender. Add the potato, carrot, water and bouillon. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the vegetables are almost tender. Stir in the milk, corn and pepper. Cook 5 minutes longer. Combine the flour and cold water until smooth; gradually whisk into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from the heat; stir in cheese until melted. Sprinkle with bacon.
Provides a good base for all of the beer, wouldn't you say?
And now some completely unrelated food for thought...
I'm going to bed.
