Superbowl Sunday! What's for dinner, C & B'ers?

I am not a football fan, but I am a huge fan of New Orleans and I love SB commercials.

So, in honor of this great american side show, I am making some SB food.

Brats on rolls with chili and cheese.
Potato salad
Beer

Geaux team!

4. PBS in Chicago is showing tonight's episode at 8 and again at 9.

I guess that's for the Super Bowl viewers who don't want to miss Downton Abbey.

It's on in DC area at 9:00, 2 PBS stations,

roast crispy cod, steamed broccoli, oven roasted rosemary potatoes - bottle of prosecco.

I've done similar-sounding potatoes, but tell about crispy cod, please.

27. Easy!

Get some nice fresh cod fillets - we get ours at Whole Foods - nice and think, say 6 oz each. Preheat the oven to 525 (yes, that high) - dip the cod fillets into milk, then press bread crumbs onto both sides (we now use unseasoned Panko, but used to use Progresso seasoned); place them on a cooking sprayed cookie sheet, then melt 2 tbsp butter and drizzle some over each fillet.

Bake at 525 for 15 minutes - it ends up crunchy/buttery outside, nice and moist inside.

31. It actually is great with just a squeeze of fresh lemon over it after it is cooked...

or, some nice pico de gallo salsa. Or served on bed of greens (collards sauteed with garlic, ginger, sesame oil, hot pepper flakes, and pineapple)...or....

just as it is!

8. Not watching either

Will try to catch the musical acts at halftime. Huge baseball fan here, really don't care about football.
Homemade Mac & cheese and a small ham for dinner. DH thinks Mac & cheese is a side dish--the "real" kind is not!!--but I've given up on this one and a little ham is no work and makes great leftovers.

9. Um - I a little confused

Nothing on that list but Beer - and depending on how the potato salad is made (which is suspect due to the Brats) - is remotely related to New Orleans.

I don't mean to sound disrespectful, but... well, it's just a bit confusing. SB - meaning Super Bowl commercials? Not making the connection with the food part.

Admittedly, I'm a bit dense today (at least according to my teenagers - which, of course has made me more than a wee bit cranky and subject to questioning everything.)

So, please don't be offended. I'm just trying to understand. (I've spent most of the day trying to understand my %&^#&*^(#$ teenagers so perhaps my brain is fried and over-tired!)


BTW - I usually make a big pot of chili for the Super Bowl along with assorted snacks - like Artichoke/Spinach dip, etc. . . . But -

1. we just had chili last week, so no one wants it. and

2. I thought no one was going to be here but me so I wasn't going to do anything, but NOW.......... it seems my son - the football fanatic - WILL be here and I have to come up with something. We're vegetarians so wings are out. We had pizza a couple of days ago. Maybe a nice pot of broccoli cheese soup with or without maybe some potatoes or lentils? I dunno. The truculent 14yo is in such a mood and has gotten ME into such a state, there maybe no game on the tv to make anything for anyway. He may be eating bread and water while sitting in his room. WithOUT his computer. (Can you tell my day has not gone well?) Okay - maybe bread and peanut butter. hmmph.

11. Not New Orleans food, just super bowl food.

I lived in NOLA for 21 years, so I know this is not NOLA food. Sorry for the confusion.

And I am going to watch the super bowl for the commercials, little side stories about NOLA and the half time show, not the football.

Sorry about the teenagers. It was a happy day for me when my last one reached the beautiful age of 21 and rather magically thought I was ok to be around again.

FWIW, when they were treating me like trash, I did not feed them. I fixed whatever I wanted and said they could help themselves, but I wouldn't lift a finger to accommodate their food wishes.

Hope your day gets better.

15. Thanks.

I appreciate your not taking offense. (Seems like I can't say anything lately without pissing someone off! ha!)

I have one "over thirty" who reminds me that "this, too, shall pass"... but she was raised in a different time. And she was - well - a little bit "afraid" of her mommy. (Not that I ever beat her or hit her or anything).

The boys, though, they're spoiled. Rotten. The 19 yo - no longer at home - still feels entitled though he truly believes he is "on his own" . . . riiiiiiight. No job. No income. Who's paying for everything, son?

The recently turned 14 yo who may make it to 15 has just hit that really hormonal stage. I try to be understanding about it, but I can't tolerate disrespect and rudeness. And he hasn't quite figured out when it's time to just stop talking because he has already ticked mommy off big time. Keep talking, son - you're just digging in deeper. He might have bought a vowel earlier though because his tone suddenly changed when he was informed he would NOT be watching the SB elsewhere and if he kept it up, he wouldn't be watching it ANYwhere.

But I guess I do have to feed him, though. He gets really surly when he's hungry. And you know growing boys - and boy is this one growing! I think about 5'11 now and somewhere around 220. And just had to buy him new shoes. 14's. You know how hard it is to find size 14 shoes?!? (And how much they cost?) And the doc said his foot was still growing. yikes. (Thus the fact that he's a football fanatic. He plays and he's built for it and a head for it and the coaches LOVE him.)

Ok - sorry. I'm totally babbling and hijacking your thread. That's what you get for showing any sympathy. Lord knows I needed some today. lol. Have a good day. Enjoy your food. It sounds great. (I wasn't always a vegetarian. . . ) Oh - I used to live in Mobile & trips to NOLA were the best.

16. Hijacking threads is de rigueur in this group and never a problem.

Used by cooks from all kinds of backgrounds to complain about or praise those they cook for.

Hold on there with the kids. Our situations are very similar. My oldest, and my only daughter, was so easy. My two youngest, both sons, were not nearly as easy. I ended up having to cut one off completely until he could get his shit together, which he finally did and did beautifully.

I will be back in NOLA for jazz fest and will be traveling through Mobile. Had some great New Years eves in Mobile - the best place I have ever been to for a family focused NYE.

You could always get some soy dogs, canned meatless chili and cheese. Easy and should satisfy your growing boy!

10. The cafe in my neighborhood makes great fried chicken on Sundays.

Figure I'll get a take out order with rolls. Have cole slaw here and potatoes to broil.

(Called the cafe when they opened and they said "get it while you can, when we're out we're out". CA college town, 49ers in the game, cafe is an easy walk for a lot of folks. So if I miss out, it's plan B - loaded meatball sub from the deli. Either way a nice treat.)

Have fun all!

which will make it much worse for me.

Hope you get your fried chicken, friend.

18. Pork ribs with Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce,

baked potato and a salad starring avocado. And beer! We are working on putting the final touches on our "Nightcallers" presentation for the Kidscreen show. We just had Brad Bolke (a neighbor) the former voice of Chumley the Walrus on Tennessee Tuxedo, and other cartoon voices in to do a last minute ADR (additional dialogue recording). He made us laugh several times. So, more happy work and lots of good food to power us through. What IS this Super Bowl to which you are referring?

29. Mind? Are you kidding?

Love those photo threads.

I'm not a football person, either, but I must say I get a kick out of watching everyone who is. I went into my doctor's office the other day and the receptionist had on a football jersey for her team and she had the shoulder pads, too! I must confess I laughed and she didn't seem to mind.

Also I really like watching the grocery stores with all their displays and promos. Chicken wings of all varieties, subs, pizzas, chips, dips, made-to-order; I think my husband told me this is one of their biggest selling events of the year.

I made up my vegetarian sandwiches and gave them to friends and kept some for myself for tonight: breaded eggplant, roasted peppers, sundried tomatoes, big slices of mozzarella, chipotle mayo, coriander, roasted garlic. I make these "tall" sandwiches on fresh pumpernickel. They are about four inches high!

Accompaniment: sweet potato hash browns.

Thanks for starting the thread, cbayer! Your meal sounds fabulous; I love brats.

25. Mainl watched the Puppy Bowl, but for some reason my son wants to watch Super Bowl

and my wife too - where did I get this family?

I didn't even know who was playing until two days ago, and that's only because my wife had "Ellen" on and Ellen had a Super Bowl themed contest.

However, they want to "do" the Super Bowl, so so far I've made nachos, mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, and am currently cooking up some chicken wings, which I made with a paste of garlic, cumin, pepper, brown sugar, some jamaican jerk spice, and peri-peri sauce.

So, except for beer and pizza, we're trying our best. I still don't understand how the game is played, but I guess that doesn't matter if I'm at the stove.

That said, I understand Weird Al Yankovic might be at half-time, so that should be interesting.

30. Not a fan of anything sporting except cat shows. For lunch today, we had

grilled brats & sausages, German potato salad, green beans, spinach w/creamcheese & basil pesto, and cherry tomato salad. For dessert: homemade yellow cake with strawberries and whipped cream. The strawberries that are coming in from Florida are really good.

The kids and hubby had their meatballs on sandwich rolls, but I had mine without the roll. We did a late lunch at Cheeseburger In Paradise, so none of us were really hungry for a big meal.

34. we did not host this year. First time in 15 years we went to the better half's brothers home

 

they made the standard chili, Rotel Cheese dip and chips. My better half made BBQ meatballs which were very good. I might be a little biased, but the better half's chili and dip is hands down much better than the brothers. Which is why I am a llittle confused. They were taught the same way but the end results are very different.
