Super Bowl XLV

Green Bay and Pittsburgh, hmmm.
We usually put together a Super Bowl spread with a theme. Last year with New Orleans was a snap. This year? Confusion reigns.
Maybe some cheesy polenta and short ribs?

What are you guys planning?

    The clock is ticking, the theme stuff is out the window.
    Here's the plan:

    • Lobster rolls. I'm boiling-up a batch tonight for dinner. Leftovers will be Sunday's stars.

    • Crab cakes. Not the big, fancy Baltimore cakes, rather the silver-dollar sized, Southern New Jersey guys sauteed in butter.

    • Baked clams. I cribbed a recipe from the Scotto family a long time ago. It's a good recipe.

    There'll be more, just haven't figured it out yet.

      Any chance you'd share that baked clam recipe?

          You're thinking of Primanti Brothers -- French fries and coleslaw. Heart attack on a bun.

          Pittsburgh has a pretty sizable eastern European population; think pirogies, stuffed cabbage, that sort of thing. And I'm sure you'd be safe on both side of the stadium with wings.
