Whatcha having?

I want to make game food, but I want some new ideas. We don't even have game food that often and yet, I find that even thinking about the traditional stuff is making me yawn.

Ideas?

Is the game this Sunday? Mardi Gras is Tuesday for Pete's sake. I have no idea what I'm making. Prolly finger food as I normally do for games. Maybe I'll get some frozen pizza rolls & make finga sammidges as well. I was gonna say potato soup but it's a high temp of 71 Sunday so forget that.

That's a good idea - I don't do sammidges enough.

Go Giants! (What can I say, I adopted them while living there all those years.)

Are ya doin' MG at all this year, Mrs. F?

We did MG in 2006 on St. Charles and had a blast. It was so funny to watch my sis forget she had a drink in her had when she gestured, then wonder why her cup was empty. Before that we did MG when we lived on the route in Metry, oh 14 years ago. It's a PITA to have to park, walk & not have a place to pee.

In the past I tried to make something meaty like grilled sausage chunks,a smoked turkey,then to contrast an Asian rice salad and edamame. Something for everybody.Buffalo wings, anybody?

being the non-football fan that I am, I'll be watching the Toilet Bowl on DIY Channel all day Sunday. No joke. Better than watching paint dry.

Food: Texas ex-pat cousin will be in this weekend til Wednesday. Gonna feed her blueberry king cake, got tons of cold cuts: ham, liver cheese, pepper cheese, several other cheeses, Pepperidge Farms Wheat Sandwich Rolls, Fritos, Zapps several varieties, Coke, Sprite, gallons of water, spice cake, hot dogs (cheap red weenies), wheat hot dog buns, hot dog relish, Hormel's hot chili (no beans), fresh chopped onion, Ex-Lax, and Tums.

Speaking of hot dog relish, I got in a discussion with the check out girl (a young'un) about hot dog relish, chow-chow, etc. She never heard of it. Told her about the old days back in the Jurassic period when we had Horseshoe, Zatarains (before the sellout), etc. A guy in the next checkout line yells, "WHO has chow-chow?" I said, "nobody..wish they did." His wife said chow-chow was the same as hot dog relish. I said it wasn't 'cause chow-chow has chopped cauliflower in it, yada, yada. Then because I was talking about Zatarains in the past tense, the woman behind me asked, "Zatarains isn't around?" Yeah, they're around, but not local anymore....bought out like everything else. She said probably the Chinese.....leading to other stuff. Had to leave before I started a riot over hot dog relish.

Who'd a thought I'd have to resort to buying hot dog relish from a company in North Carolina? New Orleans is going to the dogs fa shoah!

Chow Chow had the dreaded yellow mustard so I eschewed it but my mother liked it. I thought it was chopped up pickles in mustard. I had no idea there was other stuff in there. I helped a couple look for some in Doornax recently. Unfortunately for them it was fruitless.

be different recipes for different companies. The ones I yoosta get had cauliflower in them. The ones today (if you can find them) are just not the same as the old days (as everything else).

I hadn't seen it in a while. Was lucky to get the hot dog relish.
