Got the Munchies?

Well it's that time of the year again.  My favorite unofficial holiday.  The Super Bowl.  Growing up, the Super Bowl was just as good as Thanksgiving when it came to eating. 

I can remember that crock pot of rotel w/meat just simmering all day.  (why would anyone not put meat in their rotel)  Mom pulling the chicken wings out of the oven.  A stove with different types of entrees cooking consisting of gumbo, jambalaya, or fried shrimp.   Don't recall the vegetables.  Lol.

I still remember Super Bowl XXVII when the Dallas Cowboys played the Buffalo Bills.    This was the first time I ever had lobster tails.  My dad must of got a hook-up, cause he had to have cooked 20 tails that day, and knowing him, he didn't get them from Wal-Mart.  I think I had to have ate about 5 of them.   You know what they say, give a man an inch and he will take a foot every time.  Lol.  Super Bowl XXVII spoiled me for lobster tails for the rest of my life.  I laugh at Red Lobster deals involving lobster tails thinking, only 1 tail.


This year I'm attempting to make some Shrimp Etouffee.  I'm doing a trial run today, so I can make sure Super Bowl will not be ruined by my experiment.

Well you heard what I'm thinking about eating, let me know what you will be snacking on while the NY FOOTBALL GIANTS bring home the crown again.

Holla at your boy!


  1. Dang, seafood sure sounds good, the best thing about this years Superbowl, I won't be calorie counting and I don't have to work the next day. Ribs are on my list but I may have to sway toward some type of seafood, dish. Can't go wrong with Gumbo and some rotel! Good article.

  2. I haven't eaten that well for the Super Bowl in decades. I need to get it together.
