For heaven's sake, how much more can one true-blue loyal PSU foodie take???
No matter how hard I try to keep things calm and peaceful in my piece of the Happy Valley universe, these days, the outside world and media seems to be turning us locals into a giant, gnarled up ball of seriously angry people. I try to cook my way through the anger. Here's this week's story:
Easter came and went. I made and served a traditional dinner around 1:00PM, and, late in the evening served up a cheese fondue. It was coming up on "midnight at the oasis", and, none of my camels were ready to go to bed (it was basketball related). A girl has got to do what a girl has got to do. This was way more than good:
I noticed that Joefromboalsburg had been eating way too many potato chips during the month of March. I finally figured out why. I don't watch basketball. During college football season, my Saturday menu always includes a "guy snack" just for him (which he's been lacking during basketball season). So, I made him a FREEKIN' awesome guy snack... homemade potato chips. Me bad:
After all of the cheese feed and deep-fried, heart-attack related food, I decided to cook something healthy. I pulled out all the stops. I made a smokey 'n sweet cream of roasted tomato soup. We sipped, savored and slurped. A healthy, happy glow started to appear across the horizon:
I just had to go and serve the aforementioned soup with some parmesan and pepper Texas toast. Texas, in my opinion, shouldn't even be a State, but, Texas toast is what put the word "cracker" on the "jack" box. You can't eat just one:
May the force be with us all. If in fact we've all been "sold down the river" by our PSU own, it's time for me to stop being so nice (wink, wink) and start cooking "deliverance-style". Anyone play the banjo?
