No waiting, No Reservations needed...

Some may say that I'm simply "un-American," and you'd all basically be right... My years living in England, there was never a mention of the Super Bowl. Had there been, I might have presumed that it was some great new soup, or a big pot of chili!
I've never played football, baseball or basketball, I sucked at soccer and never played rugby! Cricket was a bug I used to listen to outside my window at night (before my time in England, that is!) I could, however, run... Cross country was my "sport" of
choice... it needed no know-how, talent, or skill, simply one foot in front of the other.
Conversely, I just read a short article regarding alternatives for "the big day," and had to chuckle at the truth of the words... It would appear that for those of us who are not sports fans, Super Bowl Sunday is the perfect day to attempt to see otherwise
sold out stage shows, or the latest movies... either, of course, followed by a meal at the most popular restaurants that are usually impossible to get in to!
CrazyCook has never made any of the typical munchies for the occasion, nor will I tomorrow! A quick lunch, and something for dinner... Typical fare of any day of the week at Casa de Crazy! My day is not planned, nor are the meals... There will be no burgers
or hot dogs, no chips with dips, cocktail meatballs on toothpicks... Not an appetizer or fingerfood on the menu!
I do imagine, however, that this would be a wonderful time to make note of many of the popular foods... afterall, there will be an occasion sooner or later, when I will be called upon to churn out appetizers by the dozen.
Meantime, tomorrow I'll be surfing the networks, watching a marathon of this or that, or movies by the dozen. The living room will be all but silent. The dogs will be the only ones "on the yard line" as they're outside barking at the neighbors dogs. I may
end up watching the marathon of the show "Absolutely Fabulous" or AB FAB as staunch fans call it! Yet another fad that I've managed to totally miss in my time...
So, fans of the "Bowl," all the best to you! I hope your living rooms are full of cheering fans, laden with gourmet finger foods and gallons of beer... May your team of choice win! One question does come to mind... who cleans up all the mess afterwards?
I may just make a trip to the grocery (after the game starts, of course!) and lay in supplies... I need to get back to "alphabet soup."
Meanwhile, have a happy, crazy, bowl day!
