Today is Sunday and there is another game I gotta watch. 49ers vs Colts. Ok…I USED to be a 49ers fan until they moved to Santa Clara. Why aren’t they call Santa Clara 49ers? They aren’t in San Francisco anymore. There should be some kind of major league rule that they have to change the name of the team IF they move more than 5 miles away from their original city. It’s apx 45 miles from San Francisco to Santa Clara.
At CUESA, most vendors are no more than 100 miles to have a booth there so that it’s still pretty much local. Same thing, but when it comes to major sports, the big shots running the show are only thinking of wining and $$$$, BUT that’s just my opinion. Don’t get my wrong, everyone wants to win, but there are a hell of a lot of $$$$$ going into sports, right? Just check the odds in Vegas. I even asked Siri the other day who would win. Dodgers or Giants in game 3 or so. Siri told me Dodgers would win by 2 runs. She was wrong. :)
Added, have to honor the Colts. When the coach had cancer and had chemo he lost his hair. The team supported him by shaving off their hair. How could you NOT support this team? T Andrew Luck from Stanford was on the team for a while and it was great. I want to watch the game hoping the best team wins in this piss pouring rain we are finally having! I love seeing football players in weather. Is it just me?
For the game, decided to make it easy again. This time I want to do a quick pickled carrot. Found this recipe on the web and she also had daikon radishes. I’m not going to chop/peel them as she suggested since I already have carrots chopped. (Recipe is at the bottom of page.)
Next going to make a Bear creek soup using the mix and add some steamed broccoli crowns.
For a sandwich using left over air fried shake n bake chicken on a garlic naan bread melt from Trader Joes with Havarti cheese and arugula.
Cocktail will be beer and Bloody Mary’s. Have you ever used Lefty’s bloody mary mix? It is the next best thing to FRESH tomato mix. YUM!
Enjoy the game!
