Favorite GAMEDAY food?..... Dine in, carryout, *delivery or make at home.

Recommended Posts

This afternoon I watched maybe the best college football game in America ARMY/NAVY, I never miss it!

Also had some Orville Reddenbaker movie theater butter popcorn, ummmm football and popcorn.  And NAVY 31 ARMY 7.  :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

And tonight the wife made some homemade Beef Stew from scratch, even made her own beef stock, just had a sample, oh yeah !!  She made it in her new light weight glass top Dutch Oven so much easier than the old heavy ones.

That's for our GAMEDAY meal before the BROWNS game.....and maybe after.

Sorry Dutch it's progress so get used to it. No more lifting weights to get ready to cook.

Actually the new light weight Dutch Ovens with the glass top to see how things are going is a really nice you almost can't believe they can cook as well as the old boat anchors that grandma used in fact my grandma was a little tough old gal and used almost all cast iron stuff.

It's 2019 almost 2020 Dutch you don't want us to start calling you gip now do you?  :lol:

Just in time for the holidays or anyday......

MASHED POTATOES AU GRATEN 

Level: Easy    Total: 1 hr 5 min   Active: 20 min   Yield: 8 to 10 serving

 Ingredients

5 to 6 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1 1/2-inch chunks <---- russets work best
3 cups chicken broth <---- the secret ingredient !
Nonstick cooking spray, for the baking dish
4 tablespoons unsalted butter 
2 shallots, minced 
1 clove garlic, minced 
1 cup half-and-half 
1 teaspoon kosher salt 
2 cups grated Gruyere <----- a must for great au graten !
1 cup grated Parmesan

Directions

Put the potatoes in a pot and cover with the chicken broth. Bring to a low boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover and simmer until the potatoes are fork-tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

While the potatoes are cooking, heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the shallots and cook until translucent and tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook an additional minute.

Transfer the potatoes and chicken broth to a large mixing bowl. Add the butter mixture and half-and-half. Use a handheld electric mixer or a potato masher to mash the potatoes until smooth and creamy. Stir in the salt, 1 cup of the Gruyere and 1/2 cup Parmesan.

Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and top with the remaining 1 cup Gruyere and 1/2 cup Parmesan. (The dish can be prepared to this point, covered and refrigerated until ready to bake.)

Bake until the cheese is golden and bubbly, about 30 minutes.

We were debating on what to have for Christmas dinner were having ham of course but what with it?   I was hungry for scalloped potatoes -but- my wife makes great masked or au graten or scalloped or any casserole......and then I saw this on TV, The Kitchen on food Network and I copied their specific recipe.

Some of your favorite dishes can come from other recipes and tweaking them up.....this one won't need any tweaking.  :)

Since there are only two Cleveland BROWNS games left this season and at least one and hopefully two Ohio State Buckeyes games left we are thinking about what special GAMEDAY meals to plan.

Also for Christmas it looks like ham, creamy spinach, probably the above mashed potatoes au graten, sweet potatoes and some other fixens.

So we hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR and a delicious bon appetit !

Oh and for the BROWNS 1 pm game today the wife stocked up on breads, cheeses and the like for the Christmas week so for lunch.:

Ham, a thin slice of hard salami and provolone with lettuce, mustard, mayo on American rye, cut in half naturally. Dill pickles, olives and chips on the side.

Tonight it will be stuffed pepper soup.....that should be good.  And GO BROWNS !

Our afternoon/evening college football GAMEDAY meals and snacks are:

Lunch chicken quesadillas, very good.

Supper and new year's eve snacks my wife's homemade sauerkraut with onions and seasonings with hotdogs around 8 pm with chips, olives and stuff.  For new year's day with more football we're having a pork roast with the sauerkraut and oven roasted vegetables.

found out how to make little smokie sausages with grape jelly and bbq sauce - crockpot.

They were excellent. Friends got us a 2 qt Cooks Essentials pressure cooker...

can't wait to pressure cook a batch of ribs with apple juice, maybe I'll add apple sauce mixed.

need recipes - friends say the pressure cookie is the best - instead of ribs all day - 2-3 hrs.

Starting the NEW YEAR off right.

The BROWNS season may be over on the field for now but there's always some GAMEDAY events going on up to and through the Super Bowl, March Madness and the NFL Draft.

I did run across this article from Cleveland Scene whether places to eat around Cleveland or just inspiration for make at home sandwiches.  Ummm.

10 Cleveland Sandwiches We Love. https://www.clevescene.com/cleveland/10-cleveland-sandwiches-we-love-like-really-love/Content?oid=31876249&amp;utm_source=widget&amp;utm_medium=articleblog&amp;utm_campaign=rightrail&amp;utm_conte

While tacos get all the attention, it's sandwiches that fuel the world. Here in Cleveland, we have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to classics, originals and over-the-top creations. Anything goes in the world of sammies as long as the results are delicious. We think these 10 are worth a try....... Continued in the link......

Those sandwiches look great... mmmmm...

Giordano's from Chicago have opened up a shop near Belden Village in the Canton area. Been there twice, haven't bothered getting their deep dish pizza, instead went with their Italian beef sandwiches. So damn good.

The original Giordano's on Rush St in Chicago was one of my favorites in the early 1980s in a great city for food.  My they have expanded !

Best deep dish pizza I've ever had.....steak knife and fork included. :D

I got a copy of once upon a time in Hollywood for Christmas. Love the movie but it was really funny when Brad Pitt would feed his dog and he would reach into the cupboard and pick out dog food made from rat meat  and badger meat.

It's homemade pizza time! 

Made my own dough yesterday, let it refrigerate for 24 hours, then used my homemade sauce from last weekend. Topped with blended Italian cheese, pepperoni, banana peppers on the left side, hot cherry peppers on the right.

For those of you who might never or recently had a true homemade Italian pizza or one from a real Italian pizzeria  they look like Dutch's picture -or- like one from Grimaldi's Pizza from NJ he sent us in October.

They are NOT like the cookie cutter national franchise joints.

The taste and smell are PRICELESS !        (Hungry for a pizza now?)

our 2 quart pressure cooker - wow. It's FUN ! Fall off the bone ribs in about 40', perfectly peeling boiled eggs in six minutes (I've always wondered how the heyl you could hard boil eggs and have them peel without moon craters), roasts, stews in just part of the time. etc etc.

    We never had one before, but our friends got us one for Christmas. Collecting recipes now.

Oh yeah my mother cooked for 8 for years with the old pressure cooker, my grandmother cooked and canned everything you can imagine with pressure cooker and cast iron.  It's fast and a good way to make some family or GAMEDAY meals.

I always loved my mother's roast beef meals, here's something to get you started from the BEEF, it's what's for dinner people. There are some great dishes there guys!

The BEEF it's what's for dinner site is the place for everything about beef and cooking including cuts, nutritional information and how to cook guide.

Whether you're a beginning cook or an old pro in the backyard or in the kitchen it's worth checking out.  ;)
