The Eugene Register-Guard, like all American newspapers, is featuring recipes for the goddamn football game in its food section this week. I know, I know, I shouldn’t modify football with ‘goddamn’ and still call myself an American, but I’m not a football fan, and assert my American freedom in saying I am not. In the interest of full disclosure, I am interested in the, um, outfits of football players, and the way they, um, run on the field, but that’s about it.
But I am interested in party food, and cooking for a manly man, so I accept your American fascination with football recipes in January. In fact, being a good sport, I will post my own tomorrow, an appetizer called “deconstructed gyro-stuffed mushrooms,” or as I will rename them, “mini-footballs with creamy garlic sauce.”
But until then, I’d like to complain about the recipes in my local rag: honestly, Eugene Register-Guard, a recipe for how to make a veggie tray? Do you really think we’re that idiotic?
