We don't watch sports. In fact, the only time we know which sports season it is happens when our friend, Steve, changes his phone availability from baseball to football season.

 

“Hey, I was working on our project, and I have a question about that thing I'm writing for you.”

 

“Nope, I can't talk now. The Lions are on.”

 

“Oh, is it that season already?”

 

So, considering our lack of attentiveness to the wide world of sports, it's kind of amazing that we've recently become insanely obsessed with the show Friday Night Lights. The show is about a small town high school football team in Texas and we watch at least a couple of episodes on Netflix every night.

 

And when I say we're “obsessed,” it's not a joke. I went from knowing next to nothing about football two weeks ago, to screaming, “You've GOT no ground game!” during a recent episode.

 

So, when Superbowl Sunday rolled around we couldn’t have cared less. However, our fictional Coach Taylor and the Panthers had a big game, so I made us game food for dinner.

 

And it was awesome. The Panthers won the championship and we ate these crunchy and spicy chicken wraps in between cheers. We hope you Super Bowl fans enjoyed your game too.

 

 
“Philly” Chicken Cheese Sandwiches PDF E-mail

I'm not an expert on Philly cheese steaks. In fact, I've never even been to Philadelphia.

 

But, I have been drunk and had the munchies. And there was a great place that used to be open late (post bar hours) where I'd go and get Philly chicken cheese sandwiches after pitchers of beer and hours of pinball.

 

We don't stay out until 2 a.m. (much) anymore, and it's damn hard to find a good (or working) pinball machine. However it's invaluable to be able to make your own post-pub food when the craving strikes. So, I've tailored this recipe from “taste memory” to fulfill those cravings when they hit.

 

 
Stuffed Poblano Peppers with Smoky Salsa PDF E-mail

Traditionally peppers are stuffed with hamburger, rice and tomato sauce. But, when working with spicy little poblanos, why not mirror their taste with a fresh smoky salsa along with bright yellow peppers? The answer is: Yes. Yes, you should do that. And you should throw some sharp cheddar in the mix as well.

 

These peppers were so delicious that I had a hard time fighting the urge to eat them all before Jedd got home from work.

 

“Hey didn't you say you were going to do something with those poblanos?” Jedd would have asked.

 

“Oh, they imploded, so I threw them away,” I would have responded.

 

J'accuse!” Jedd would have yelled in this alternate reality.

 

I confess! They were delicious and I ate them all!” I would have acknowledged.

 

But, none of that happened. I just ate one.

 

I plan to change that once he gets home and we have them for dinner, though.

 
Barbecued Pork with Blackened Red Peppers PDF E-mail

For the last week our living room window has been a derivation on this theme.


Whether it's been snow or frost, we've been lucky if our view has been translucent at best.



And when it's this cold outside I like to get something on the stove to warm us up a little. It's good if it smells spicy too. So, to that end I've made this batch of super spicy barbecue sauce from homemade ketchup twice this week.

It's amazing how with just a few ingredients you can make a fantastic salad. Usually I load salads up “Jedd Style,” with tons of vegetables and some quickly sauteed seeds. But looking around the kitchen for a quick lunch today, I spotted an orange and a red pepper in the hanging basket. And I had a few strands of onion sliced in the fridge that were begging to be used.



So, in less than 3 minutes I had a beautiful salad to munch on while I read an Entertainment Weekly review and listened to the melodious sounds of “dunk dunk” from the Law and Order opening on television.
