Super Bowl Monday

“Happy Giants families are all alike; every unhappy Patriots family is unhappy in its own way.”  –Coach Leo Tolstoy, NFL Hall of Fame, Coach of the Cincinnati Bengals, 1971-1978.

I mean, what?  There was no defense.  You can’t win big games without defense.  What were they thinking?  I saw it was over from the start on that first drive by Manning.  But I’m OK with it.  I’m OK with all of it.  We’re not talking about Celexa either.  There is yet to be a medication to puncture my Pirelli.  No, it’s perspective.  You have to put things in perspective.

One other thing?  What was up with Brady slapping the MHK on his chest, KG-style, and pointing to the heavens, after throwing that touchdown pass?  Was the pass for Myra?  Or was it because of her?  Tom, it’s football!  It’s not a Ouija board.  No disrespect, but it’s not about communicating with the dead!

This just in from the Internet, no joke.  Giselle was caught on mike saying the following, after the game: “You (have) to catch the ball when you’re supposed to catch the ball,” she is heard saying. “My husband cannot [expletive] throw the ball and catch the ball at the same time. I can’t believe they dropped the ball so many times.”

Giselle?  It’s called a BAD PASS, Giselle.  A BAD PASS!!!!

I’ll tell you what made it all worthwhile here: Deep fried Korean chicken thighs, turkey and red bean chili, hummus, and romaine salad.  You’re probably wondering what made the thighs Korean.  Well, first you steam the meat in a little bamboo basket and then you fry them.  You don’t have to fry them as long as you would had they been put in the oil without having been steamed, which makes them crispier.  Then there’s the dipping sauce: Soy, apple cider vinegar, hoisin, a drop of sesame oil, chopped ginger, chopped garlic, chopped scallion, a bit of red pepper flakes, black pepper.  Reserve the broth below the basket for soup.

It’s a good thing that this looks like my last day on the book about chefs.  I’ve got other plans.
