Greetings and Happy Football Game Eve!

I wanted to do a real quick cheap ass knock off of a post in case you are running short on food suggestions for the Big Game Day tomorrow. Some of these recipes are easy some are not and I’m going to throw in some really unhealthy but simple and tasty suggestions as well.

Tomorrow we will be firing up the grill in the Right household. I’ll be grilling some burgers, some hot links and some Italian sausages. Just for fun we’ll be cooking a shit ton of bacon for the burgers. My brother has also achieved elevated status as the family lumpia maker so we will have some of those too.

Simple suggestions: Get a jar of dry roasted peanuts, a can or bag of salted cashews, get a couple of different types of cheese. Vary it up a bit with some sharp cheddar, a quality gouda and maybe a creamy brie or even a pepper jack. I found a local place that makes a kick ass habanero jack cheese. Serve these with a couple of types of crackers. You all know the basic onion dip thing right? Package of Lipton french onion soup mix and a pint of sour cream? Mix together and chill for an hour and serve with chips? You can do that.

A nice easy queso that will please the masses and equally disgust you when you purchase the ingredients. Get a 1 pound block of…drum roll please…..VELVEETA! The all unnatural processed American cheese food! Get a can of chili, you can use your favorite here and get a 10 oz can of Rotel tomatoes and green chilies -undrained. Microwave all ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips or Fritos. My dad taught me this unholy thing and it’s always a big hit.

I’m just going to link to a couple of my old Sunday Gravy posts for a few more suggestions.

I will be making some wings tomorrow. I will basically be using my fried chicken recipe to cook the wings. For the sauce melt some butter (some folks swear by margarine) and add an equal amount of Frank’s hot sauce. mix together and serve tossed with the fried chicken wings.

Everybody needs a good chili recipe and for you poor folks in the colder climes a nice hearty chili that cooks for a day or two may be just the ticket.

Since we’re grilling I thought I would toss out a couple of suggestions. This chipotle chicken is stupid good and is great tailgate grub.

Maybe you want to try to Caribbean flavor mon! Here’s my jerk chicken recipe that will satisfy the masses.

The point here is if you are having a get together don’t just order a pizza or grab a bucket of chicken. You can do that shit any time. Throw something together for your friends and family. Put in some goddamn effort here folks and they will appreciate it.

This should give you some decent ideas for food and you have ample time to get your ass to the grocery store to get the ingredients. Host this damn party like you mean it.

If you have some ideas of your own or just want to share the menu you will be having, drop the ideas in the comments.

You notice I didn’t give any drink suggestions. Most of you are more than capable of handling the drinking aspect of this with no issue.

Have fun and go Professional Football Team of your choice. Or just go football squares for the final score!

Cheers.

I wish I had the time/inclination to make some of the things you write about, YR. In any event I always love reading your posts.

Senor Weaselo

I’m in charge of marinating wings in the morning since they’re currently frozen. The Weaselo family secret (whoops) is we take a metric shit-ton of Italian dressing to marinade until the wings are covered and I pick one of my severals of hot sauces to add for spiciness on the inside of the wing. Then you can use whatever your normal baking/grilling wing/chicken procedures are to cook them while I throw as many hot sauces as I can think of in a saucepan on very low heat (normally some Frank’s Hot Buffalo, Sweet Baby Ray’s Buffalo, a shot of Sriracha, and a couple of my more sinister brews depending on how I feel/how it tastes) and add a little butter when it starts thinning out.

Romonobyl

My town has a big Navy base…which begets a sizable quantity of retired military…which results in a considerably high Filipino population (the running joke is that after Vietnam, Navy Chiefs were issued a Filipino bride upon retirement). I’m fortunate enough to be an honorary member of this association, which means I get to partake in some of the finest food you could imagine. This includes an almost unlimited supply of handmade lumpia ready for my fryer. Not the healthiest diet…but holy shit is it fantastic!!!

Horatio Cornblower

A redneck friend of mine, (and rednecks can be great people, far better than lawyers for instance), just told me “eh, I don’t really follow pro football but it’s the Super Bowl so bring some beer and we’ll grill and use the smoker. Also I think I’m going to buy some shells so we can do some shooting first.”

SOLD!

Horatio Cornblower

I like how Yeah Right recognized that we’re all barely functioning alcoholics and left the drinks to our discretion.

I took a few weather readings yesterday and decided my best window for grilling was last night so I fired it up and will be having easy-peasy leftovers tomorrow. And beer.

In preparation for tomorrow, I bought a sixer of Sex Panther Beer :

I’ll report back on how it tastes…

Well Sill, 60% of the time, it works every time.

Let us know. It’s hard to find a good porter in a can. I really wish Founders would start canning theirs.

Please do report. I’ve been eyeing this one for a while at the store.

Velveeta also makes a decent bulk mac and cheese.

1 lb per 1 lb of pasta.

Mmmm, lumpia

Eww. As a stand-alone comment it seems as though you’ve got a hunchback fetish.

Ok there seriously is nothing better than rotel, Velveeta and some sausage… Sad thing is looking at it when it all congeals and thinking “yup that is clogging up something inside of me right now”

Spanky Datass

Yes! Crumbled then fried breakfast sausage in queso is superior to any canned chili .

Not my favorite by any means, but you go boyeeee!

The Maestro

Gonna watch the game at my parents’ tomorrow because my GF doesn’t give a shit about watching it, period, and because mom is a professional food writer. So tomorrow’s lineup:

– Chips and homemade sour cream/onion dip
– Cheese-stuffed meatballs with cheddar-beer sauce served on crostini
– Butterscotch, SKOR bit and pecan cookies
– buttermilk-brined and -battered “fried” chicken (actually done in oven) with homemade deep-fried fries… she has this awesome TFAL fryer that you only need a cup of oil to do a full batch. It’s awesome. Check this shit out.

Not to mention as well that their beer/wine cellar is limitless. God I love my folks. They’re great.

I’ll be over at 3.

Super simple and always a hit: Sausage Roll. Pack of pilsbury crescent rolls, pound of sausage, 8oz pack of cream cheese. Cook sausage, melt in cream cheese, spread on rolled out crescent dough. Roll the sough closed, into a log. Coat with melted butter and poppy seed to make it look snazzy. Cook per dough’s instructions (but keep an eye. Don’t want to over cook).

Same basic idea but with pizza dough, pepperoni and mozzarella.

I’ve got a prime rib in the back seat of my car that I haven’t told my wife about. Why? Because I must find out if her sister is coming over tomorrow after a skiing lesson. The way things work is like this-wife says ‘scotch is cooking something’ to sister, sister says, ‘let’s make a big fucking deal about this’ and brings her entire 5-strong gang over and tells my mother-in-law about it and MIL invites herself and her new-ish boyfriend over and then brother-in-law finds out about it and calls my wife and asks why he wasn’t invited when in fact, NO ONE WAS INVITED. AT ALL.*

*not a single one of the potential attendees is a football fan

Sharkbait

That sounds awful.

scotchnaut

Thing is, if there was just one football fan among them I would gladly cook up a shit storm of food and retire to the basement with him/her. As it is now it’s all, [talks with mouth full of food] ‘why is scotch avoiding us? he’s so weird, could someone pass the gravy?, let’s begin talking about other people in our small community for a few hours’.

Wakezilla

Stupid Ice Alouettes beating the stupid Ice Eskimos. You’re 5 points out of last overall where you can draft a franchise center first overall in Matthews, or one of the Fins that look like they’ll be pretty good. Carey Price isn’t coming back, so just tank!

Everton just scored a nice header. 2-0 Everton

Last night, I ate all the pizza known to mankind and quite a bit of beer. I feel like shit. Today is a “have lots of salad and drink water day” because tomorrow I feast on some fantastic chinese food for dinner.

scotchnaut

That’s a solid plan.

I just bought myself my first TV in 7 years! I’ve joined the unwashed masses of owning a giganticly awesome tv! WHOOOOOOOOOOO! And with CBS actually streaming the game tomorrow, I can finally sit my ass on my own couch and be disgusting at home!

I think we’ll be making some calzones here in the Pirate House (it’s not a Sloth house, things get done on time around here, and there is a lot of plundering going on at any given moment), as that was one of our Blue Apron recipes we chose this week. Except that instead of it being ricotta and spinach calzones, we’re doing the shit up right and adding all. the. meats.

Going to a housewarming/Superb owl party tomorrow,fiancee is making cornbread. Always a good call

BrettFavresColonoscopy

Congrats at having a fiancée. I think I missed the engagement news. As Chris Rock always said, cornbread: ain’t nothing wrong with that.

I’m not going to some damn party tomorrow; it’s just going to be me and my oldest friend watching the game. And, by gawd, we’re picking up a big fucking Popeye’s family meal and having at it.

But I am making a pie: chocolate and butterscotch banana cream pie on an amaretti cookie crust and coffee whipped cream, possibly with a caramel layer at the bottom. So I’m justifying the bucket of fried chicken by making that.

Yeah. I’m a bit over it. My mom is watching it all on her own, the way she really wants to; apparently, hanging around with a bunch of older ladies who don’t care about football makes her want to smash things.

I have trouble watching any football in a group, same goes here.

The only guys I’ve liked watching the ball with are 7 hours away. The reason we got together during the Super Bowl many years ago was our love of football and glossing over the previous fantasy season. I miss them fuckers so much when the big game rolls around…

I, too, am anti-Super Bowl party because football fan me and non-football fan folks just there because it’s a party don’t want to deal with on another.
