I am supposed to prepare the victory banquet for the New England Patriots triumphal march to this years’ Super Bowl XLV victory. Something went wrong. It could not have been Tom Brady’s fault. It was the fault of the grumpy, frumpy guy that coaches the Pats………….Belicheck. Why in the world was he so cautious during the entire fourth quarter?
So here I am, looking for a good recipe for humble pie. I am finally resigned to the fact that I will be watching Green Bay and Pittsburgh battle it out in the XLV Super Bowl, for a crown, that every football fan in America knows, rightly belongs to the Patriots. I had planned on celebrating by roasting a beef tenderloin and having roast beef sandwiches on Iggy’s wonderful slider rolls from Whole Foods. That sounds much too elegant for a game between Green Bay (cheese) and Pittsburgh (Heinz Ketchup, Clark Bars, Klondikes, Iron City Beer). I am almost sick at the thought of chicken wings, nachos, chili and pizza.
Right now, I seem to be looking at Mac and Cheese, with ketchup on top, washed down with Iron City Beer. So as you can see, I am going to need some help. I know that the discerning readers of this blog must have some food thoughts on this years’ Super Bowl menu.
So here’s what I need to know from our readers:
1. What are you having on Super Bowl Sunday?
2. What should I be eating on Super Bowl Sunday?
When answering these questions, it is important that you keep in mind:
1. My state of mind after the Patriots debacle.
2. The indigenous foods (ugh) of the respective cities.
There will be a prize for the most creative use of indigenous foods, and for the best overall menu. The winner will receive a free coupon redeemable in our online store. So help me out here....
