An update for you today: One of the most popular recipes on my site, Buffalo Chicken Salad Dip, has a facelift and recipe adjustment!…
Here’s all we need to finish out the summer (or get ready for tailgating!).
Loaded Baked Potato Salad with all the creamy dreamy stuff dreams are made of.…
Because football! And because snacks.
And because we need snacks with our football, right? Especially because for those of us that don’t 1. understand and 2. care about the sport, snacks are kind of all we have left this time of year.
Jay, for his part, was very misleading about how much he liked sports when we were dating. Looking back, I could have SWORN that he didn’t care a ton, was all hippie and cool, cared about random bands and comedians and thought that too much money was injected into sports. He loved golf, but that was different.
Love is blind, people, love is blind.
Between Fantasy Football/NFL and college, this time of year has us talking about football daily and watching it several times per week, mind you Jay will claim up and down that he hardly watches it and “most guys like watch so much more, we don’t even have CABLE!” The last part is true, we cancelled cable because Jay begged me to. I don’t actually mind it, but I do like making fun of Jay for “not liking sports that much,” because I’m all about embracing vices and true loves.
Like Jay, my true who love who prefers to eat low carb and vegetarian a lot of the time. This is a definitely vegan dish and a low-carb not-so-much dish, but it is suuuuuper healthy for you and you are definitely not required to eat it with chips. I call it a salsa because it’s GREAT with chips, but it’s also great cold over rice, as a side dish for tacos or burritos, or over greens as a salad. Maybe some feta or sharp cheddar on top, I don’t know. …
….in which we break the internet.
Or maybe the world really has gone to hell in a handbasket and you people have no soul, I don’t know which it is some days.
But if anything was going to save the world, it would be this little number. It’s our first new football recipe for 2016, but it would also be a PERFECT showstopping appetizer for a holiday party (omg how are we talking about the holidays seriously can’t deal) or even, say, a mother effing Wednesday night. It’s bread and meat and cheese, which are basically 3/4 major food groups, the 4th being wine.
The short ribs are indulgent here and, honestly, you could use any beef you like (shoulder, chuck roast) that will relax and shred nicely in a stewy situation after a few hours. The flavors end up like the richest French onion soup you’ve ever dreamed of, and there are whole garlic cloves simmered in the sauce to boot. Then we shred the beef, stuff it into bread with GRUYERE, for sobbing out loud, and dip it in the beef/onion juice to solidify the best time you’ve ever had watching football no matter what your feelings on the actual game are. Guaranteed.
Ok so I have the most wonderful new football season recipes comin’ atcha, because if you know me at all you know that I’m all about that buffalo and have no clue why football players need so many breaks. Ballet dancers don’t quit after every pirouette, you know what I mean?
I digress. …
