Souper BowlJanuary 21, 2008
My hub and I have a Super Bowl
tradition to make SOUP to celebrate the Super Bowl. Not just any soup – these soups must represent the teams that are playing in that year’s ultimate of football contests.
So, with New England tripping along on this fantastically PERFECT unprecedented record-breaking season, we of course could choose CLAM CHOWDAH. New England Clam Chowder, white, cream based with potatoes…
But… Perhaps we should shake it up a little and defy the tradition of marrying New England with Clam Chowder. Perhaps, we could take advantage of the Portuguese tradition in this area and go with KALE SOUP with Linguica!
Or…. Hub was thinking maybe we could find a good recipe for a COD soup of some kind?
I’m sad that Green Bay lost to the Giants. My TASTE BUDS are most sad. I was REALLY wanting to make the Pace Cookbook’s Spicy Potato CHEESE Soup and add Johnsonville Brats! I’ll have to make it anyway, another time.
New York Giants: One obvious choice to go up against the New England Version would be the MANHATTAN Style Clam Chowder!
Hub also suggests a Garden Vegetable Soup to represent the Garden State of New Jersey (since that’s is truly where the Giants play.)
Dear Readers, your turn! Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
