What did you cook for Super Bowl viewing? Or Downton Abbey Viewing?

I'll start. I made aargersi's Sweet Potato and Lamb stew, using loin chops. It was a no fuss meal, the lamb forked off the bones - it was that tender - and I added a little blood orange and its zest to the sauce for a little punch. The best part is I have leftovers for this evening.

I made Jetsei's Just Good Chili -- It was a big hit! I think the coffee and cocoa powder mixed with siracha is magical! http://www.food52.com/recipes...

SB is a real chili kind of event. That recipe looks great!

Glad you mentioned it--just made my own bean chili for dinner tonight & added coffee & cocoa per the above. We watched SB--not my first choice, but I was outvoted & watched DA online today...I didn't cook yesterday. We took out pizza & bought chips. Boo on me.

Let us know which you watched--Superbowl or DA?

Both - when I switched to DA that ensured that I missed the most exciting part of the game. But I did see the half time show. Interesting.....the lip syncing was spot on, though!

I have absolutely no idea what "Downton Abby" is. It has to be some girly TV show. Right?

@Pierino - total, complete unadulterated girlie show. Upstairs/Downstairs, clipped British accents, mansion with ferns, nasty people with good manners. The Best.

Yum! Sounds delish. We watched football. Made pigs in blankets, buffalo wings, jalapeno poppers, sliders, guac, sugar cookies and ice cream.

We made the Momofuku Bo Ssam with homemade kimchi, pickled veggies (onions, radishes, carrots, cucumbers), ssam sauce, and ginger scallion sauce. Oh, and Bibb lettuce and sticky rice for wrapping. It was so good! I highly recommend the Bo Ssam recipe; it was my first time trying it and definitely not the last.

Watched SB, didn't watch Madonna. Here in the Pac NW we are now bragging that our Seahawks beat the SB Champs during regular season! Well, anyway I made HLA's Danish Kringle - a savory version, filled with cubed up garden potato, carrot, rutabaga, Italian parsley, beef and pork...other seasonings. Lots of cut veggies and Champagne, of course :)

Bevi, HA! Slice up the Kringles = hand food, lots of raw veggies and ranch dip, add a few glasses of Champagne, some shouting at the TV, and your “civilized” thought starts fading into history ~ET :)

We made the genius duck confit recipe (and it was for sure genius -- no fuss, absolutely delicious!) on homemade pasta and watched the Super Bowl. Loved a few of the ads...did not love the Patriots' play.

My neighbor owns the Blue Smoke food truck and made complimentary pulled pork sandwiches for us (on a brioche bun no less). Delivered hot and sassy 5 minutes before half time. Life is sweet!

I did Tiki Tacos for the communards. They went over really well but I did't tell them what went into them until after they were finished off. Two types of SPAM. People were asking for the recipe before they learned that part. I spent most of the Bowl cooking, as I'm not much of a fan of American football.

Well, NCAA women's basketball is my viewing sport, and that does not seem to excite many people. SPAM sounds like a great SB food, especially the way you prepared them! I grew up with SPAM, and I vaguely remember it being mixed with pineapple, somehow.

Yes, they did included pineapple. And this time I used hard taco shells to make service for a crowd easier.

Ma'am, there is a whole SPECTRUM of SPAM. I used a combination SPAM original along with Hot and Spicy (includes Tabasco). But then you can find Turkey SPAM and SPAM Lite. It's hard enough making the original taste good without getting into the wimpola variations.

@dymnyno - When I travel to Latin America, the serious supermarkets have a whole aisle devoted to all the varieties of Spam! It is mind boggling. But I bring back cans for co-workers here on the Rez (I work on an Indian Reservation) and they think it is very funny. Spam is big wherever refrigeration is a problem.

I made those, too! Baked mine in a hot oven instead of frying - just wasn't feeling it. They are awesome wings.

You know, I was thinking of skinning the drummettes only, "lollipopping them" and then baking, but wanted to try the recipe as is - comented back to the recipe originator earlier today. Can you tell me how you baked please? 350 F for 20-30 min after poaching and cooled to room temp?

22b9ddc9 fc61 48a3 949e dee341974288  liz and dad

I baked at 375 initially. Then realized I needed higher heat to crisp the wings, so cranked it to 500. Kept them in for about 20ish minutes until crispy. Prob won't flour them next time if I use oven method again. They were floury. but yummy!

Even the Spouse was IN Indianapolis for the game, or maybe because he was, I made his version of chili as I watched Eli and the gang do it again. Go Giants!! But hey -- didn't anyone take time out to tune in on HBO's "Luck?"

I do not eat significant food during Downton Abbey because it comes on at 9p here and we eat dinner much earlier. But I do make sure I have poured myself a nice glass of port or sherry, set out a little plate of English "biscuits," and have tissues nearby in case there is a poignant moment. I also turn the ringers off and make sure the rest of the household knows not to have any emergencies until after the show.

That's not asking too much. My sister waited until her birthday to catch up with DA. She figured it was the one day she could do what she wanted without any interference!
