The Super Bowl of Food
There are many great factoids, true or not, about the Super Bowl and the food that goes with it. And, whether or not you watch, participate or enjoy Super Sunday, it doesn’t mean that you can’t join in the communal fun by eating on what has become the Super Food Bowl!
Did you know that more avocados are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday than any other day? It's not actually true. There is another holiday that eats more; about 160 million avocados will be consumed on Sunday the Fifth of February this year! And something like 112 million slices of pizza will be eaten.
) told me that on the day of the big game people eat: baby back ribs, chicken wings, steaks, sausages, chili (think chili cook-offs),
of all kinds (Rick has some 8 variations of wieners and dogs!), and, of course,
. And everyone buys them on Saturday. No reason to plan....

Beef and Lamb Sliders
Not for the faint of heart, or those with a troubled heart. These sliders are full of flavor, with lots of heart stopping fat. Mix equal parts ground lamb and ground beef with salt and pepper to taste, add in a small amount of diced
Mama Lil's Peppers
. Coat your favorite cast iron pan with 1/3 cup of
; cook your
to add flavor to the fat; remove the bacon and add your slider patties. Cook to your own perfection. Light pink in the very middle is my preference; remove from the pan to drain. Place the patty on a small bun, then crack an egg straight away into the oil in the pan; sparkle and crackle and then pull the egg and top with the bacon and then top with relish!
are perfection when it comes to relish.
Remember the revival rage in the 80's of baked potatoes topped with sour cream, chives and bacon crumble? Then it turned into adding anything leftover in the kitchen on top and it had it's own category on the menu! I really liked those potatoes! The best way to make them is to lop the top, pull the potato out of the skin, mix in your favorite ingredient, like
, put it all back in and then top with bacon and sour cream. To mix it up, try a little
Red Onion Marmalade
. Any relish mixed in, or
, is the perfect combination. Not too much as you want the hot potato to wrap the relish, not the other way around!

One of the finest vinegars we have ever seen. Using local Lambrusco wine grapes, makes this a rare vinegar indeed.

From the moment your mouth is exposed to the flavors, you find yourself trying to describe and explore the nuances that this vinegar has.
We are now offering a way to sharpen your favorite knives. (Sorry not for online customers.) Every Wednesday the knives will be picked up and returned on the following Saturday.
