A Manly Football Care Package

Ryan left, again.

Apparently the code of manhood, i.e., fantasy football, requires that the man species to leave the home and congregate with other man species on the divisional playoff weekend, drink beer, eat food, and grunt.  Estrogen not allowed.   So off Ryan went, yet again, to pay homage to the gods of football by drinking cheap beer and overeating.  I am sure they are engaging in high level conversation that is appropriately punctuated with burps/grunts and the occasional profanity.

I decided to be a good girlfriend and send him with an appropriate manly care package – extra-meaty chili and cookies (someone else was brining the beer).

I decided to make a girls weekend out of it, by ticking off some of the recipes I had on my list of Recipes I Need to Try as well as some other new recipes.  Here is what we are making:

  • Cinnamon Glazed Almonds
  • Pretzels with Queso
  • Pizza with Arugla Pesto, Goat Cheese, and Sundried Tomatoes
  • Spinach and Goat Cheese Bisque
  • Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
  • Maple Balsamic Crusted Pork Tenderloin
  • Butterscotch Bacon Cookies

Pictures to Come!!

Oh, and off course this will all be served with wine.  And for desert, Chocolate Wine with Cherry Bounce.  We are definitely the more evolved species.

Murphy has a love-hate relationship with cooking.  He loves the smells, and he loves that  cooking means snacks as the occasional item falls to the floor.  But cooking also means no one pays attention to him because everyone is busy cooking.  It is so hard to be Murphy:

It is so hard to be me.

It is so hard to be me.
