Junk Food Thanksgiving


It's Super Bowl Sunday! That really doesn't mean shit to me 'cept I can make every junk food delicacy that my little heart fancies. I just woke up from the food coma that can only be induced by daytime beers and white carbs.

Mini pizza, sliders with extra sharp cheddar on potato rolls, buffalo "wangs" (the store was out of chicken wings and I had to settle for breast tenders, boo) with creamy blue cheese dressing, pigs in a blanket (those are like pogos for you Canucks), tater tots, and spinach dip in a bread bowl. It's like we let a first-grader decide what to make. Except that there was lots of beer involved.

I ended up bailing on the bread bowl in lieu of sliced bread because it was looking like consuming a whole loaf of piccolo como (I bought it because it's the shape and size of a football) would be daunting for just the two of us. The spinach dip is good, though. It'll be a good sammich spread for lunches this week.

Yup, the best thing about the SuperBowl is the beer. Gotta agree with that. It goes particulary well with Janet Jackson showing her breasts! hehe

Oh yeah, give me some beer and I can watch any kind of sports. Don't forget the tons of junk food and this is a perfect American holiday, hehe.

That is quite the assortment of snacks.

I guess I should say something about the beer, like everyone else.
*Manly voice* Yeeaah, beer. Bring the beer on...

Missing my superbowl days; the junk food and the bets we used to take.

Heather, I'm sure it was entirely coincidental that you'd post a phallic pic of a hotdog poking out at us.

You're a bona fide smart A$$ and that's a good thing.

PS. Email me.

Between Zen Chef and Peter the Greek it looks like I've started attracting a bunch of perverts! What does junk food and beer have to do with celebrity bosoms and phalluses?! :D

Ben - SPS is *totally* an American holiday.

Jaden - I am gonna go to Home Depot for those lights right away!

Em - the thought of you using a dude voice to say "beer" made me giggle.

Pixie - Don't feel bad about missing the Super Bowl - you get the World Cup and we don't!

Peter - It's better to be a smart ass than a dumb ass. :\

Love you!!!!!!!!! Thank you!

It seems that SPS is the BIG PARTY ever here in America!!! You are all going nuts with it! Big fuss!!! Sounds like the October Fest in Germany... lots of beer and Fiesta!!!
Hope you had a GREAT time and a good hangover (artichokes are a good help for that) ;-)

Heather said...

No problem, Emiline! You're on Tastespotting now!

Nuria - Thank you for the tip about artichokes! I will remember that.
