I would eat sushi and champagne until I barfed.

Come to think of it, I may have that anyway...I have the champagne still untouched since Election Day. Now if I can just find a good sushi takeout.;-)

Breakfast of jowl bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese, English muffins with butter and strawberry preserves and a K cup of Cappucino. Lunch at Church’s chicken, including the jalepeno bombers with creamy jalapeno sauce. Dinner at Ruth’s Chris steak house with the Brussel Sprouts. Recipe below:

Ingredients:

1 lb. fresh Brussels Sprouts (not frozen)
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
3-4 slices of applewood smoked bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1.5 tsp apple cider vinegar
1.5 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 tsp salt, plus more as needed
Ground black pepper for seasoning

1. Bring a medium-sized pot of water to a boil and salt generously.

2. Trim the bottom end of Brussels sprouts, and pull off the outer dark leaves. Halve through the core.

3. Add Brussels sprouts to boiling water and cook, uncovered, until tender - about 7 minutes.

4. While Brussels sprouts are boiling, add the oil and bacon to a large skillet (I prefer cast iron), and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until the bacon is crispy.

5. When Brussels sprouts are tender, drain and rinse under cold running water.

6. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside. Increase heat to medium high. Add the Brussels sprouts to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

7. After five minutes, sprouts will start to brown a little. Add apple cider vinegar and stir. Cook an additional 4 minutes.

8. After 4 minutes, add maple syrup. Continue stirring until edges of sprouts are brown and crispy (about 2-3 additional minutes.)

9. Add bacon. Salt and pepper to taste.

10. Serve warm. (Serves 2-3. Can double recipe for more.)

Absolutely nothing. Rather, I would fast, and pray to Jesus Christ that he save my and all the other wretched souls on this soon-to-be-finished planet Earth!

Coffee-Marinated Bison Short Ribs

Marinade:
4 cups water
3 cups chilled strong brewed coffee
1/2 cup coarse kosher salt
3 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons (packed) dark brown sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 cups ice cubes
4 pounds bison (often labeled buffalo) short ribs, cut between ribs to separate

Short Ribs:
1/4 cup chopped bacon (about 1 1/2 ounces)
2 cups chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped shallots
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small jalapeño chile, seeded, chopped
1 cup strong brewed coffee
1 cup low-salt chicken broth
1/4 cup chili sauce (such as Heinz) or ketchup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce

For marinade:
Stir 4 cups water, coffee, 1/2 cup coarse salt, and sugar in large bowl until salt and sugar dissolve. Add syrup and next 3 ingredients; stir until ice melts. Add ribs. Place plate atop ribs to keep submerged. Cover and chill 4 to 6 hours. Drain ribs; discard marinade.
DO AHEAD: Drained ribs can be made 2 days ahead. Cover and chill.

For short ribs:
Preheat oven to 325°F. Sauté bacon in heavy large wide ovenproof pot over medium heat until beginning to brown. Using slotted spoon, transfer bacon to plate. Increase heat to medium-high. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper. Working in batches, cook ribs until browned on all sides, about 7 minutes per batch. Transfer to large plate. Add onions, shallots, garlic, and jalapeño to pot. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until vegetables are soft, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Add coffee and broth; stir, scraping up browned bits. Add chili sauce and all remaining ingredients; bring to boil. Add bacon and ribs, cover, and transfer to oven. Braise until meat is tender, about 2 hours 15 minutes.
DO AHEAD: Can be made 2 days ahead. Cool slightly. Chill uncovered until cold, then cover and keep chilled. Rewarm in 325°F oven until heated through, about 20 minutes, before continuing.

Transfer ribs to plate; tent with foil to keep warm. Spoon fat from surface of sauce. Boil sauce until reduced to 2 cups, about 5 minutes. Pour sauce over ribs.

I’d knock off work early and go home to spend time with my family. We’d eat whatever we happened to have in the house because I wouldn’t care to waste time shopping over being home with the people I really care about.
