Crudités. Cheese cubes. Pretzels. Really? This is all we’re gonna offer our vegetarian friends come Sunday?! I don’t think so!
If you can chop 2 veggies, measure some spices, open cans, and toss everything into a CrockPot and walk away, you can have a delicious vegetarian/vegan Sloppy Joe on your Super Bowl table that will fool even the meatiest of meat eaters.
So… you’re feelin’ fancy. You’ve got a bounce in your step. You’ve got a twinkle in your eye.
While the majority of us can barely reach for the queso, chips, and PBR, you’re ready to bust out the big guns… The celebratory feast.
Money is no object when your team is in first, so this one’s for you Broncos and Chiefs fans, and the insane AFC West!
Blame it on the rain. Here comes the rain again. Who’ll stop the rain? November rain. Singin’ in the rain. Fool in the rain. Songs about rain. Purple rain, purple rain.
Alright, what does all this rain/song nonsense have to do with Chilled Corn Chowder?
Well, I’m a music maniac so I equate most things to song, but that’s not the point. The point is, in my little part of the world, we’ve been super blessed to have an abnormal amount of summertime rain, equating – giant, delicious, abundant… corn!
When life hands you tomatoes, make fresh tomato juice, and add vodka – or something like that.
Fresh. Vegan. Healthy. Low Carb. I know these aren’t usually words you see in my posts, but I’m trying friends. I’m trying.
“Are the green guys in yet?” “Just checkin’ on the green tomatoes.” “No green tomatoes yet?” “Are they here?!?”
I’m fairly certain the fine folks at my favorite farmer’s market are freaked out by my borderline obsession with green tomatoes.
I can’t help it… I love them!
Theme week, theme week, you know I love a good theme week.
Sadly, I was unable to give you the rhubarb week I had planned, but this week’s featured ingredient, is no Summer slouch! The beautiful, the colorful, the delicious, the Summer Superstar – Heirloom Tomatoes!
Clearly, our eyes begin the sensory path to consumption, and to me, there is nothing more appealing than presenting your fellow eaters with an array of color and freshness. Look at that plate, how could you not want to dive in? Doesn’t hurt that it’s also delicious.
The people have spoken! Well some of you have spoken, but you’re my people, and that’s all the counts. General consensus seems to be that we need more non-mayo recipes in our summertime arsenal… so I listened!
We survived the election, Thanksgiving came and went, we’re in the thick of a crappy football season (well, some of us), and the Christmas season has descended upon us out of no where. Who’s ready for a drink?
We did it. We survived the first week of the 2012 football season. RG3 made a lot of people in my parts remember why they ever signed on for Skins fandom. Peyton made me remember why I love him so, even in that terrible orange jersey.
And stomachs all across this great land cried out for Tums, and a week of rest.
With that thought in mind… on to the dip!
