In honor of the big game, Super Bowl XLVI, this week’s food quote is being published on Sunday. This is partly because it’s a holiday, and I enjoy highlighting holidays in my blog posts, and partly (or mostly) because I know I’m going to be too busy recovering from tonight’s festivities to try and write anything of substance tomorrow. Kathleen and I are throwing a party for the Super Bowl because she’s a die-hard Patriots fan, and I like to eat and drink in the company of friends. I’m in charge of the food (I know, shocker, right?) and she’s in charge of the alcohol. We make a pretty good team, and I’m pretty excited about it. New Year’s Resolutions, Shmoo Years Revolutions. It’s the Super Bowl! America’s holiday! The whole point is to eat and drink and scream at the TV…. although now that I think about it, that pretty much describes every holiday we celebrate in the Gallimore household. So.
“When your Super Bowl guests arrive, they should find a mound of potato chips large enough to conceal a pony sitting in front of the television. For nutritional balance, you should also put out a bowl of carrot sticks. If you have no carrot sticks, you can use pinecones, or used electrical fuses, because nobody will eat them anyway. This is no time for nutritional balance: This is the Super Bowl, for God’s sake.”
