It has been a long few weeks, the news and unfolding events are of no comfort, and "good spirited tailgating times" are a distant memory in our minds. That being said, I've decided to tread on and continue to post some BSD food posts.

After they have cooled, fill 'em with whatever makes you and yours happy. Pictured here is Joe's favorite. Frico filled with hot-pepper crusted salami, fresh mozzarella, garlic-y olives and strips of roasted red pepper:
