Posted on 10/26/2012 2:35:56 PM PDT by PJ-Comix
Okay, the Coupon Stars have properly aligned again so I can get pretty much any food I want for FREE for the next few weeks. I already have a bottle of Grey Goose Vodka which I traded for in my South Florida Barter King guise and will supplement that with iced coffee in order to stay awake until late at night watching the returns.
So what snack food would go good with these drinks? I don't want anything too heavy. Just light and fun to eat. Sushi sounds like a good idea but what else? I am open to suggestions.
Pork rinds and beer, to celebrate the removal of the muslim.
Pickled herring, cheeses, (good) olives, shrimp cocktail, and crackers.
spanakopota(sp) from trader Joe’s, swiss meatballs (Ikea), roast some garlic in the oven and spread on French bread.
Cocktail sausage baked in crescent rolls with dipping sauces. You can get a lot of bang for your buck with those.
Tabuleh is good for you too. Some hard sausages, if you want some meat other than fish.
Cheese stuffed Jalepeno peppers dipped in extra hot salsa.
Cut the vodka with tequilla and wash it down with Red Bull and motor oil (I prefer Mobile 1 Synthetic for it’s smooth after taste). You won’t tase the popcorn after that but you’ll remember the events clearly the next day during a bowel movement. It’ll either be worth it or appropriate.
This puts me in the right mind to watch the election returns and commentary.
Shrimp wrapped in bacon and bake at 350 for 15 minutes or so! Pork, pork and more pork! Any american beer.
That “garlic roasted on french bread” sounds really good!
Using Coconut oil & whirly pop, then real butter and garlic powder.
Will run to 7-11 for 32 oz Coke.
I expect MSNBC & CNN to have large viewership as many conservatives will want to see their meltdown.
As the great Ben Maller says, “the best story is always in the losing locker room”.
Before a year ago I would have buffalo wings but what happened is that I got so many of them last year via coupons that my body rejects it. A few months ago I tried to eat Buffalo Wings but I couldn’t get past the second one. I even waited until I was really hungry the next day but I still couldn’t eat them. Perhaps buffalo wings is like penicillin-—take too much of it and your body builds up an immunity to it.
Dr. Ard’s election night prescription: 5 barrels of Popcorn, 16 cans of Monster Java, 12 beef jerky packs, a firearm and lots of ammo, nonliving (or at least nonsentient) targets, and absolutely no FR.
I am thinking....maybe... lobster, homemade mashed potatoes with truffle oil, a salad with some blue cheese sprinkle thingeys and my mother-in-law’s homemade poundcake- all served in a hot pink or bright orange melanine school cafeteria lunch tray I recently bought- in honor of the First Fata$$ and her policies that leave American children malnourished and hungry.
Oh, and popcorn (made in the popcorn cart hubby recently bought me) as a snackey-poo while the votes are being tallied.
Sorry I no longer have any Prevacid coupons.
Toast because that's what O is now, and bacon for mussies.
Treated myself to a tin of smoked oyster earlier today! Finished off a jar of pickled herring a couple of days ago ... it’s all GOOD!
Atomic Buffalo Turds
I’ve had champagne waiting for months.
Ready to pop the cork and celebrate that night.
Home popped popcorn made on the stove with coconut oil and lightly salted with sea salt, is my snack of choice.
I am expecting the miracle I’ve been praying for.
Wisconsin can be won by R&R.
I shall hear the wailing from nearby Madistan,WI.
I will watch the lib satellite channels to see how Ed, Rachel, Chrissy, and the rest of them are doing.
Put a small dab of cream cheese in the butterfly cut along with a *sliver* of jalapeño.
Find some THIN bacon strips and wrap the shrimp with it.
Grill over a hot fire and baste with your favorite BBQ sauce.
And lots of it!
If you want parasites, go with the sushi. They’re in even the healthiest of fish.
I suggest a chip bonanza, augmented with regular cheetos. Nacho doritos, cool ranch doritos, a good lighter potato chip like the kettle cooked versions of lay’s reduced fat, even the classic fritos could be good. Every hour can have a highlighted chip.
Make some quesedillas, with bacon, cheese, scallions and jalapenos. Side with sour cream and lettuce. A bit on the heavy side (the cheese will make your stomach work), but quite yummy.
Saucy dogs is easy. A package of lil smokey links, cut up an onion, a bag of small carrots, ketchup, honey, BBQ sauce, brown sugar hang out together in a crock pot for the day.
If you like fried potatoes, try cubed spuds (I cube 'em then microwave them 'til near cooked) and onion, fried in lots of butter with whatever salt and pepper you like. I use a pretty healthy dose of cayenne pepper when I make the dish. Comfort food!
Nothing at my house, anyone offering an invitation?
I only wish Olbermann were still on MessNBC. To watch him, Madcow, Schultz, and whatever other liberals they can scrape up, going nuclear, I cherish the thought!
I live to drink their tears... they nourish me.
That looks like somebody took drapes and made them into a dress.
“I saw it hangin in the window, and just had to have it.” /carol burnett scarlett ohara gone with the wind skit
Maybe I’ll have something I haven’t eaten in a long time: caviar.
The popcorn, btw - is a given, goes perfect with Schadenfreude :)
Chicken nuggets from big bird, and cookies from the Cookie Monster.
Sake warmed to 105 degrees.
Skittles, lots and lots of skittles.
Unicorn meat from the hind quarter.
Romney fans... Goose pate, “foie gras”, on pumpernickel, w/ Grey Poupon..
Obama fans.. Roasted Crow, on Cracker payback Crisp, w/ Watermellon.. :)
That's a good one. Not awfully expensive for one or two people. Won't be "the filler," but it is a nice side.
Another good snack thingamabob is veggies and veggie dip. Another is either salted assorted nuts, or some nuts in the shell if you feel like a minor workout every once in awhile.
A good American sparkling wine and Li’l Smokies in BBQ sauce consumed to the tune of “Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Philip Sousa.
I don’t know. In 2008 the only thing on the menu was Wild Turkey. This time, I might ask the wife to make little hot dogs and I’ll be swigging some fully caffeinated Diet Coke so I can stay up and watch 0’s concession speech. At that point, we’ll probably break out our usual celebration food - ice cream, brownies, and sour dough pretzels. Can’t wait.
Homemade egg-rolls....potstickers (there are some good frozen ones)... mini sausages— wrap some and mini-crock some...very crunchy veggies for any tense moments...chexmix for those who don’t like crunchy veggies...mini cheese cakes...hot chocolate, hot cider, eggnog.
Coffee, nothing is much good without coffee.
