Souper Bowl

January 21, 2008

My hub and I have a Super Bowl

 football.jpg 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… necc2.jpg

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?

Alright already.

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!  mhcc.jpg


Hub also suggests a Garden Vegetable Soup gvsoup.jpg 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!  


Snow, Movies, Football

Snow Today.
If people never did silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done.
– Ludwig Wittgenstein


We watched the movie Waitress yesterday.  I love pie, so of course, I would love this movie.   It definitely has that indie feel to it – slow pace, camera angles and scene setup?   Still, I enjoyed it though I prefer movies that so engross me that I don’t stop and think thoughts like the one I just expressed.  

The Golden Globes announced winners yesterday and did this without the big glitz & glamour show due to respect of the writer strike.  I feel for the writers – I do!   Probably more so due to that being the career I would most want to be if I was a “Player in Hollywood.”   But, the average TV watcher – think about it!   Is hardly aware of it, imho.   If you adversely affect my daily life, THEN you get my attention.   But really, this strike is not disrupting me, not that I have a typical life, ahem, but I don’t know if anyone ‘normal’ is noticing.    I wish the strikers the best.   I hope it’s not a sad bust for them. 

I wonder what the Academy will do for the Oscars… oscarstat.jpg


Now, let’s talk ball:

Go Packers!  I’m rooting for Green Bay this coming Sunday.   What a fun weekend to watch football, this was, huh?   I may have a crush on Romo but I have little love for the Cowboys.   I went back and forth rooting for the Chargers, then the Colts, then the Chargers – and they pulled it off.    I would have cheered for the Jax Jags (why?  I like their colors…) but since they played the Patriots, I couldn’t not root for the continuance of this Perfect Season.    I’ll ALWAYS be a Chiefs fan, but when in Rome New England, root for the locals!

Ladies, there is something here for you, too:
