Hey, I have a sincere query. I am having a gathering to watch NE slaughter Tampa on Sunday, to be followed by the Dallas - Atlanta game. I need to go grocery shopping tomorrow. What woud you recommend for someone who's culinary skills usually involved a microwave, a small George Foreman and the occasional use of the oven to bake things. What is a good thing to have? When I was in KC, this guy used to make homemade hot dogs with his favorite Cincinnati Chili. I don't really have that option per se. There are some things I can get in a British grocery store, but it's a little different (and goodness knows they have great beer). Any recommendations. It's not a big group, just like 5 or 6 of us so I don't want to overdo it (though I am thinking now that I have a sports package I might do this every sunday).

any suggestions? Thanks.

In England? You have to go with the fried kidneys. Nothing like the scent of sizzling urine wafting up into the nostrils. Yum. ;D

That's not right...eww...

And by the way, the sports coverage for NFL here is very bad (shocking i know). They really thought interviewing the Tampa Bay Cheerleaders (aka Mensa candidates) would be a good preview to the game. Well I suppose, the cheerleaders suck as much as the team. ;D

Grills are perfect for this situation, so if the Foreman can handle it, burgers would be really easy. I just buy ground beef and work in some Worchestershire sauce. The key to good burgers is making them dense, consistent in shape and no more than 3/4 inch thick.

Whatever you do don't forget the handle of Jack - boosh!

so are you inferring that Tampa is into gay porn?

No, but it's interesting that you read it that way. ;D

Roasts are near fool proof if you get a decent probe thermometer and keep carry over time in mind. They'll also free you up to watch the game as you can season well in advance then just preheat, slide it in, and a few hours later pull it out.

Prime rib is an excellent choice for parties because it appears rather high end when its painfully simple, you're just letting a quality piece of meat do its thing.

Pair it with some baked or mashed potatoes and you're well on your way to a kick ass meal.

Chili is also a good option, again a lot of sit and cook time that lets you watch football. Most chili recipes consist of browning the meat, tossing the rest of the lot in, and letting it simmer for a few hours until its done. Garnish with green onion, sour cream, cheddar cheese (and I'd personally add fritos), another easy meal to turn out if you have a reasonably well stocked spice cabinet.

Burgers and hot dogs are never a bad choice, but they might require a bit more constant attention while being cooked and cause you to miss a period of the game. If you plan it between games or during half times thats not so bad though.

If you have a deep fryer buffalo wings are super easy as well.

Lot of options, just start poking around cooking websites, this time of year many have game day party suggestions.

You made me choke you asswipe.:spit:

I remember being stuck in Heathrow years ago due to aircraft mechanical problems, and the vending machine was nearly empty due to all the passengers stuck in the "quarantine area" (read: did not clear customs).
One of the only items remaining in that machine were bags of "beef flavored chips". You talk about NASTY!

I would just probably go with a "make your own" Nacho feast (microwave).

You can serve on paper plates, have a line of self-serve ingredients including a couple different meats, a couple different cheeses, hot & mild salsas, a can of green chiles, sauteed veggies if that's your thing.

Easy on the budget, everyone can make them how they want, easy cleanup.

Bratwursts -boil em in beer for a couple hours before tossing them on the foreman, get some kraut and spicy mustard to do them up right.

A big hunk of velveeta and a can of Hormel beanless chili (you can also add a can of rotel or just go rotel and velveeta) tossed in a bowl and nuked for9-10 minutes is wonderful with corn chips.

Get some pita pockets, cut them into pizza wedges (cut outer edge to seperate them into two wedges each), brush them with a warm olive oil/oregano/salt/pepper mix, then put a little salsa on - or diced tomatoe and green onion if no salsa available, then tos a little bit of provolone on top, bake at about 350-375 in the oven (thats farenheit) for about 10-15 minutes, until pitas are crispy and provolone is sufficiently melted.

Another fairly easy snack is the swedish meatball - get premade meatballs toss em in a pot with either a sweet bbq sauce or ketchup and worcestershire, let simmer for an hour or so.

Yeah, they have stuff like Jerked Chicken Crisps (aka Potato Chips) and other bizarre flavors like Steak. What I find particularly funny is the spotted dick pudding (which is essentially a fruit cake).


Anyway, thanks to all for some excellent ideas. I know I can go to websites and stuff, but I thought it might be nice to run it by some people I know and mostly like and who I know have experience in throwing good parties. Plus, I would like to prove I can discuss other things besides um, personal relations.

Cheers!

Actually it would probably be easier to find the ones I haven't managed to drag into the gutter (just ask AK). Seriously, it is sometimes damaging to my ladylike persona to have the warped mind of a 18 year old in my head. I blame it on growing up hanging with boys most of my life. ;D

Who comes up with these names???

I don't care what it looks like nor how creative the packaging is, I ain't buying it.
