Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Superbowl: an unavoidable food opp

Posted by

This year I've been acting sort of casual about the Superbowl menu situation. Living in NYC, where the game will be played tomorrow (well sort of NYC), should be getting me extra excited, but just like when the president's in town, it really just boils down to a traffic nightmare for those of us coming and going to work and appointments every day. But I was snapped out of my complacency by an unusual situation: my hubs decided, shopped and is prepared to execute a menu totally devoid of any Mad Hungry recipes. I mean--for cryin' out load--if any book should be cooked from this year, it's Mad Hungry Cravings, named one of the top five munchie cookbooks by the San Francisco Guardian Surely a game representing the top two stoner states should be feted with food from an equally notorious book? My competative juices are flowing again. Since it's not too late to create or alter your menu for tomorrow, I'm throwing some recipes into the ring: Teriyaki-glazed Chicken Wings, Loaded Potato Skins, and Queso Fundido recipes are in the index on the left side of this post.

But back to my hubs. It's Sam Sifton, the venerated NYTimes food columnist and current newsie big wig, who stole my man's appetite away from me with these three recipes Game Day NachosClam DipCoke-Brined Fried Chicken.  I felt defeated before the game was even played. Like I wrote Sam yesterday, I get the coke chicken and nacho's but surely my proven, can't-stay-away-from, carmelized onion & bacon dip would have better odds in Vegas than his clam dip?  Sam advised me to make it anyway. So make I it I will. And it'll be placed right next to that clam dip like a Seahawk facing a Bronco, and then we'll see whose the winner! Stay tuned for the outcome and have a great weekend. Best, LSQ

  • First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to
    ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find
    out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior
    to writing. I've had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or hints? Thanks!

  • In her new book, Dr. Keshia L. Gaines states that students should
    discover from tutorial content material around the college bus along with other special areas (the bus stop, cafeteria,
    playgrounds, loos, academic clothes, and so on.) The essential to enhancing America's educational technique, Gaines
    thinks, is? to let college students to find out
    outside the classroom. Because college students are not conference tutorial anticipations in
    the basic classroom, it really is essential to think about all techniques and locations for college students to learn.
