Cookin’ on the grill on Super Bowl Sunday

photo-1
Hard to see we’re in a recession, judging by the long lines at the supermarket today for Super Bowl Sunday. Neither team is one that most of us root for regularly. (At least one of them is west of the Mississippi).

We’ve been swimming a lot and eating a little, but the Super Bowl calls for something special. The beautiful weather makes the choice a “no brainer”: Fire up the grill.

I cooked a turkey on the spit on the barbeque and slow cooked some ribs on the “Big Green Egg.” As an appetizer, I prepared some shrimp in cilantro and lime marinade. I’ll grill those, too.

We’ll cook some veggies on the grill too.

To wash it down: A bottle of Lucchesi “Tempranillo” from our quarterly wine club selection and, yes, water.

Enjoy the game.
