  1. What kind of Portuguese food do you like?

    1. There's a ton of petiscos on google.
      Make half a dozen different ones.
      That's what the fans in Portugal will be eating during the game.

      1. The Portuguese food I'd choose to have watching a football match (and I'm assuming there'll be beer) is francesinhas. May be tricky to prepare for a crowd, though you can cook the meat and make the sauce beforehand.

        1. Piri piri chicken wings are quite tasty and easy to make. You can usually find piri piri sauce in a specialty food store, even my Safeway carries it. Or you can use substitutions to create the flavor. Here's a recipe:

            Piri Piri is great and if you are a Penzey fan they have it at their spice stores as well.

              For big games throughout the year my friends and I cook food according to the cuisine of the opponent.

                  AH........but for the least some of us'll have to serve martinis and hotdogs and hamburgers.

                  not likely.........but we all have a dream

                    Manhattan would be more appropriate, no?
