SuperBowl Sunday.....

February 6th, 2006 (05:18 pm)

If you want to commit a crime in Texas, do it during The Game.
The streets are empty, even in Austin.

Myself and barry_barry had planned to have a cook out at his place...
Invited a tiny handful of close Friends--none of whom took us up on it.

(Seriously, Annie--NOT a problem--though I did love it when your vegetarian spouse
Helen said: We could grill steaks!
And I said: But you don't eat meat!?!
And she said, as only Helen can: I drink Guinness!)


We weren't disappointed, so much.
Neither of us wanted to fuck with the grill, and hanging out on our own seemed like
more fun anyway. (see: we may have been hung-over? Also See: okay, GINGER was)


The grill was left cold--and we made a suicide run to the local HEB Grocery Store...

We didn't think about it...we didn't even know who was playing.

(((I heart Boys who don't heart football)))

After an hour or so of what can only be described as hand-to-hand combat--
with free-samples (we didn't even WANT the free-samples, but those around us...)
We escaped the store. (what was our checker's name? I LOVED him...
John, John S. I believe...he had Chutzpah! We couldn't have made it out alive
without him. If ever someone has covered me in a fire fight and screamed
Just Go On Without Me!!! twas was our checker, John.
I do hope he has today off.)

We arrived back at Barry's with a couple of sweet potatoes, broccoli, a very nice piece
of thick juicy-raw-cow-goodness, a packet of Tempura batter, Chinese mustard, more
soysauce, about a pound of fresh strawberries....and a lot of soybean oil.

The several pounds of shrimp were already waiting for us, with many other condiments.
Stuff already secured for any potential party...


or tempura..or...


The veggies were cut down to size, the shrimp peeled (already deveined), and Barry
cut our loverly steak into perfect bite size pieces of yummy flesh.

The food, there was simply too much food.
All in little bowls, ready to be plunged into the searing hot oil of Barry's bad-ass fondue
pot he got for his birthday party last December...

Some dredged in the tempura batter...the shrimp and the sweet potato were my fave.
Or just plunged in, and dipped in one of the many sauces...the steak. So yum, just
stuck in for a few moments--rare.

We stood around the pot in the kitchen for hours.
Trying different ways to to boil something in oil.
Boiling stuff in oil--UBER FUN.

Oh yeah, those strawberries went in eventually...
Tempura'd fresh strawberries, then rolled in sugar.

What a fried pie is SUPPOSED TO TASTE LIKE.


Didn't know who won, until just a little while ago--when Annie told me
on IM--her team won! YAY!!!

STARGATE ATLANTIS...and then Escape From Planet of the Apes

I guess I like my testosterone packaged a little differently...
With a ray-gun strapped to it's thigh.

Feel like reading SKINNY LEGS AND ALL again tonight,
Tom Robbins had a pretty good take on football too.


Hope your Team won as well.
Whatever it is they play........................

True Story

Two years ago during the superbowl I was out buying cloves at the head shop on S. Lamar who's name I can no longer remember. On the way home I stopped at the Target on Ben White to buy diet coke and their generic KY liquid.

Target was empty which was nice but they were almost completely out of all forms of intimate lubrication which was not.

So apparently the Super Bowl has something to do with sticking it somewhere that isn't slippery enough on its own. Lord only knows what.

Target did have plenty of soda though. Which I would've thought they'd normally sell more of on Superbowl Sunday.

*smirk* The house smells like fried stuff still. It's kind of disturbing really.

Heh. Instead of chili, I took the prepped sweet-potatoes and broccoli, and tossed them in the wok with a little oil, soy sauce, garlic, tiny bit of curry paste(I know, I'm predictable, but it was handy) and thinly-sliced jalapenos. Quick steam, put the rice in the bowl, and toss on the perfectly cooked shrimp that you left in my fridge(okay, I ate a few while the other stuff was cooking). Turned out pretty good for a random Tuesday.

I'm guessing that I'll probably have the leftovers of the leftovers tonight :) Thursday is probably dinner out with Sean, and then Friday, if I'm very lucky, maybe a certain cute girl will come over and cook with me, or let me take her out. And that's the way it was... The tense is wrong, but cope ;)
