Super Bowl Sunday Eats: Better Than the Game...

  • g

I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who posted a recipe in reply to my request and to report back on how it went.

We finally decided on a "customized" version of Jason Perlow's killer nachos. We opted for fresh red and green peppers rather than the roasted, and we omitted the olives (a split decision which my side lost). We also jazzed up the Old El Paso mix with some other herbs and spices. All in all, quite a substantial, tasty and popular dish.

Also had raw carrots and celery, accompanied by the Rouille posted by Deb. Another knockout.

Now we have a pile of recipes that we have to get through. Looks like it's gonna have to be the Knicks and/or the Rangers next...

Thanks again, folks, for your suggestions and your generosity in sharing your tips.

  1. Excellent!

    The killer nacho recipe is very flexible. Glad you enjoyed it.

    We had a low turnout this year, and I was too sick to cook, so we simply ordered a platter of sausage, peppers and potatoes from Dino's bakery in Cliffside Park-- always a crowd pleaser.

      Actually, your platter sounds pretty damned good, too.

      Hope you were well enough to enjoy the food. The Giants surely weren't gonna make you feel better.

      Oh well, as they used to say in Brooklyn, "Wait till next year!"

        Well, George - as soon as I explained what cassoulet was to some puzzled faces ("it's meat and beans, think of it as French chili"), they ate it and loved it - almost as much as the game.

        .and, good luck to your team next year.

          Well, Terrie, you're very gracious and I do look forward to next year. Jim "Mr. Prediction" Fassel has guaranteed a return trip to the SB, but he didn't commit to next year, only that it won't take another ten years.

          And regarding cassoulet, I've never had the homemade version, but the two or three times I've tried it in bistros have been memorable, at least for me. One of the versions I've had featured a crispy duck leg sitting on top of the cassoulet, and I wish it were in front of me right this moment.

          Congrats on your team's powerful showing. I can only invoke the old Brooklyn cry: "Wait till next year!"

    2. By the way George, those were Microsoft Certified nachos. :)

      I see you wrote an OS/2 book... small world.

        Well, to abandon any attempt at modesty here, I actually wrote three OS/2 books. And I'm pretty sure the same five people bought all three editions.

        And to continue my bragging, I also wrote a couple of Dummies Quick Reference books on Word for Windows and a book on PageMaker. I've always thought that getting published entitles one to bragging rights, so now I've done my share.

        I've been told by faithful readers (both of them) that the OS/2 books are FAR better than sleeping pills...
