We were going to go out and then lost our mojo and stayed home so we didnt have the house stocked with treats, but at the end of the game we dessert-ed on a giant spoonful of Nutella and Marshmallow Fluff and it was delicious!

    We had carnitas, a Mexican radish salad, guacamole and chips. Mos' satisfyin'.

    The food was far better than the commercials, but that is saying precious little.

      Chorizo injected chicken wings. They were unbelievable.

          In the Greater Orlando Area there is a meat market, Petty's Meats. The owner found a way to inject chicken wings with chorizo. My guess is like a stuffing injector or something.

          Maybe its like Frankenstein wings. but they were very delicious!

          We bought a pound of them which was actually only about 5 wings.


          If you ever find yourself in the area it's http://www.pettysmeats.com/ I've got to give them credit

        I don't think it's too unusual, but I've never had Old Bay seasoned Chicken Wings before, plus they were baked and rivaled most other wings I've had. Definitely going to be making them again.
        Also made some baked pumpernickel onion rings, while tasty, they didn't get covered that well (either I need more practice or maybe stick to fried onion rings).
        Everything else I had was pretty commonplace, though.

          Prosciutto bread. Proscuitto is ground finely and you make it almost like a Stromboli.

            Not sure any of it was unusual. Drank Terrapin IPA, made salad, crab chips, old bay wings, crab stuffed mushrooms, and the main was seared scallops. The scallops really didn't fit the theme or the event, but the sea scallops looked so good at the store where I was shopping.

              Fried rotini pasta. And I loved it! It was puffy and light and seasoned with parmesan and a few other Italian spices (probably a store bought mix). The hostess said that you boil until just underdone, drain the living crap out of it, then deep fry and season.
              I don't deep fry much at home, so I won't be making them, but they sure were different and fun. Other fare was the usual.

                Deep fried rotini. How bizarre. I don't suppose you dipped 'em in Ranch or marinara?

                  No sauce provided, but it would not be out of place. It was just served in a big bowl like popcorn. Definitely unique.

                    Very strange, but really cool. I could see myself eating a whole bowl of that.

                    I worked at an Italian place in college that served deep fried rotini as a little snack before dinner (with marinara to dip), sort of their answer to tortilla chips and salsa. They're really, really good and addictive as hell!

                    I made ceviche and my friend brought some raw oysters. Not that unusual, but we drizzled some of the leche de tigre onto the oyster. That was pretty tasty.

                    Other than that ribs, wings, ABTs, guac, deviled eggs.

                    Oh, and lots of beer.

                        Tiramisu, chocolate lava cake, and angel food cake. We were on a cruise ship.
