But let’s face it, we’re all just eating candy this weekend.
Okay, that’s not true. I have a brand new recipe I’m trying out this weekend for the Steelers-Saints game that I’m hoping is a smash hit with the crowd. And since I am cooking for the night game, I have all day work in the kitchen and get everything just right before kickoff. No rushing about at 9:50 am making sure the coffee is done, setting out napkins while finalizing my fantasy line-ups. Because I’m not making this recipe until Sunday, it’s impossible for me to post about it today unless I was one of those food/mommy bloggers who makes two batches of everything they cook because one batch is just for styling and pictures while the second batch is for eating. No thanks.
No judgment though if you just eat candy this weekend. My recipe involves mole, so that’s sort of like the bowl of candy seen above.
In other news and notes:
Last night during the live performance of RiffTrax (the crew that used to do Mystery Science 3000) mocking HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, they went for an obvious Ben Roethlisberger joke when a character was almost abducted. Of course since it was live broadcast to theaters nationwide, I don’t have clip of it so you’ll just have to take my word on that one and enjoy one of the shorts they posted from last night, Grocery Witch.

And finally, sorry it’s been so slow around here. Trying to do some site upgrades behind the scenes, and since I am my own IT team and my own designer and CSS editor (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) it’s taking longer than it should. Hope it’s all worth it in the end.
Don’t forget to add your pictures to Football Foodies Flickr Group from last weekend and be sure to get some new shots this weekend, even if it’s just your Halloween candy.
