mini gorgonzola popovers.
It’s been pretty well established that we’re a football family. But have we talked about the fact that, at the beginning of each season, my husband and I pick 3 teams to follow for the 4 glorious months of football? First, we each pick our own team…one that we each are individually interested in and hope will end up playing each other for some inner-family competition. The second is our shared team, the one we pick and cheer for together. Some couples share a love of sophisticated things like golf or wine-tasting…we love football. That’s just how we roll.
Well anyway this year my team was Green Bay. Andrew’s was Denver. We were both loving us some post-season, nail-biting games. But in the end none of our teams made it to the Big Game. So who will you be cheering on this Sunday? Me, I’m going for the Giants. I kind of like seeing Tom Brady not win something…he’s got plenty of trophies and a trophy wife to boot so I’m pretty sure he’s set.
So while you’re watching the Big Game this weekend, munch on these! I think they may soften the blow when you take your fellow guests’ money in the big pool you’ll be playing…
