Game Grub


One thing that I like about watching championship football is the ability to drink and eat to my hearts desire by the warm hearth of a fire.

Nothing says football grub like pigs in a blanket so of course we had to have that on the menu. Also on tap was prosciutto-and-swiss wrapped asparagus (ever notice the the smell of your urine after consuming asparagus? It must be in the chlorophyll as a recently had white asparagus and it was quite noticeably absent) and Moroccan-spiced salmon (served on sliced baguette brushed with olive oil and crisped under the broiler) that was leftover from the shift I worked on Saturday.

The wife nixed my plan for beer cheese fondue but soldiered on to make cream cheese and crab wontons in our frydaddy, the making of which turned into a family affair.

It was a good day...

The prosciutto wrapped asparagus is a big hit here too, but I've not tried it with cheese. Looks like I'll have to.

and don't forget to broil it on the same pan you made your bacon on earlier in the morning.

we love our pig in NC.

You could wrap (add anything nasty here) in prosciutto and it would be excellent. It's great fried crispy and crumbled on salad.
