I know we are waaaaaAAAY off of being topical, but what the hey.
In Northern Kenucky, there are two state parks that are very, very close together, named ‘Big Bone Lick" and "Beaverlick".
Serious. I couldn’t make stuff like this up…..
I may have mentioned this before, but my Super Bowl Sunday tradition for years has been hot pepperoni sandwiches. They were available everywhere where I grew up, but can’t get them in Rochester.
It’s similar to a meatball sub. You slice up sticks of pepperoni, them simmer in spaghetti sause (I like tomato basil with small chunks of tomato best)for hours. If you are diet conscious, boil the pepperoni in water for a few minutes to get out the excess fat before adding to the pot of sauce. You can put some crushed red pepper in the water so the pepperoni doesn’t lose any flavor.
Serve on good hard rolls, or sections of french bread. Yummy [:)][:)][:D][:D]
A couple quick things about "beaver". Penn State’s football stadium is: Beaver Stadium. A small college outside of Philadelphia got so tired of beaver jokes that it changed its name from Beaver College to Arcadia University. Oh, and it was an all female college…
naked Gun 33 1/3 movie….Priscilla Presley is going up a ladder in a skirt when her cohort looks up and says "nice beaver" to which I nearly fell over watching it with my Mom. She comes down the ladder with a beautiful stuffed beaver. You gotta love it. AND have a sense of sick humour! [:D]
Julia, I have to know. Did you post that befroe the Leos stunned the Pack? And if you did, got any hot tips for the weekend?
Well, the game was in session. The Packers tend to come up with the short end of the stick when they play Detroit on Thanksgiving.
My hot tip for the weekend is, don’t let leftover dressing sit around too long! [:D]
Hey, if it weren’t for Thanksgiving, the Lions’ season might be even worse. They have a way of playing better on Thanksgiving than they do the rest of the season.
How about food to go with the T-Day parade…for those of us who like ’em. [:o)]
Just heard last night, U of MD is going to the Gator Bowl "Fear The Turtle"
Joe Pa has to go, the Knittany Lions are becoming a disgrace, and yes it was a Chi-Chi’s at the Beaver County Mall (no jokes anybody) and my mother’s neighbor was one of the ones who NEARLY died. She just got released from the hospital. Don’t think she’ll be eating green onions anytime soon. As with all fruits and vegetables, wash them well and you should have no problems.
Sundancer, up here in Pennsylvania, I’m trying to put the worst season in Penn State football history behind me. A 9 loss season has never happened.
Actually, it was a Chi-Chi’s in PA and not a Chili’s where the tainted green onions were.
I was shopping for vegetables at a local Asian market yesterday and could not help but notice the number of people buying green onions! I actually questioned an elderly couple and their response was that they had eaten green onions all their lives and have never become ill. I asked if they had heard about the Chili’s restaurant and the number of people that became ill, they informed me that it was because the onions had not been refrigerated!!!! Oh well, my oyster and artichoke soup for Thanksgiving calls for green onions and I am going to substitute lightly sauteed onions and lots of chopped chives for color.
I do chili with a high-sided bowl, soup always in a low wide bowl, dessert in a small decorative bowl, onion soup in a bowl designed for it…….
You meant someting else? Oh well…..[:o)]
Brats,Chili–no beans please–not today, with a room full of football fans!!!—,maybe one of them six foot sandwiches,lots of chips and dips, and plenty of long necks!!!
It’s not a bowl game, but Thanksgiving dinner is being held up at our house this Thursday until the Packers-Lions game is over. Who can concentrate on food when we know that they are counting on us to help them win the game with our yelling and cheering?
We don’t usually eat during Bowl games either, although I had a breakfast of brats, cheese and beer before the last bowl game that I actually attended. [8D]
