Next big food event? Super Bowl?
« on: January 02, 2018, 08:04:22 PM »

I guess we will soon be in the doldrums for 'feasting'.  Maybe after the Super Bowl the next big event might be the Final Four...is that a foodie event?

I guess the Super Bowl is more a snacking ..chicken wings type spread..getting away from the more elaborate prepared full course dinners of Xmas and New Years.  I see the SB as a 'break' from slaving in the kitchen by just going to the store and picking up a variety of wings already prepared...maybe a sandwich ring or four foot hoagie....maybe travel to Swissvale and pick up a Battleship ....and a couple of pizzas with the works.  Makes for a nice relaxing day if you don't have to spend it in the kitchen or tending some grill or smoker.  Worth the money spent.

BTW...what do you eat at a basketball event?

I tend to do ribs and/or wings and pizza. Last year I did a taco bar. Back in Pittsburgh maybe hoagies also, but we don't have Pittsburgh quality hoagies in Cleveland.

Also I usually make guacamole.

We have cheese ravioli topped with my aunts "Sunday Sauce" with meatballs on Super Bowl Sunday because, well, it's a Sunday.  And Sunday means pasta and sauce in my Italian family.  We actually have the pasta dinner around 3.  Then at 6:30 and thru the game we have with wings, chips/veggies/dips, and cookies/sweets. 

As for March Madness and hoops....my college buddies and I have a tradition of all of us leaving work at 12 noon on either the first Thursday or Friday of the tournament (the two days there are the most games) and meeting up to watch an afternoon of all the early games together.

Saw a few articles in various food/wine industry magazines and social media sites that I follow that said chicken wings and any types of chips/pretzels with salsa/dips are the most popular Super Bowl party foods across the board!

My next big food event is in 2 hours.  Have a huge pork roast with potatoes and onions in the crock pot. ;D ;D

Love crock pot meals!  Especially big pork or beef roasts or loins.  Nothing better than when the meats just shreds apart.

Yeah Nicky.  Had the pork cooking all day.  The damn smell was making me hungry for 5 hours!  Made such a hog of myself, I was too full for desert.  That will come shortly as we have fresh pound cake, strawberries and blueberries and some Breyers Vanilla Bean ice cream.  But first, I'm going to make a hot pork sandwich on fresh Italian Bread with gravy and relish.  I've really been pigging out since spending 2 days in the hospital.  Got tight in the chest and having had 4 previous heart attacks, thought it best to hit the ER.  Anyway, they ran a gazillion tests and it ended up slightly high blood pressure and gas.  They tweaked my meds and I was back home in time to shovel snow.  LOL  BTW, since they had me on a cardiac floor, the food sucked.  I knew within 5 hours I had no cardiac issues so the first thing I did was have my wife sneak in a Philly Cheese Steak and fries with gravy!!
