Games watched/suffered through included:
- Iowa-Iowa St. (absolutely brutal to watch. Why Tim accepted a bet with Thad getting only 7 points instead of 14, I have no idea. It's your own fault, dude.)
- Missouri-Nevada (Mizzou is like watching a video game with the opponent skill level set to "novice")
- Meeechigan-Notre Dame
- Georgia-South Carolina
- Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech
- New Mexico St.-Nebraska
- Ohio St.-USC (a woodshed game, as predicted)
- Oklahoma-Washington (that wasn't even fair)
- Wisconsin-Fresno St.
Whenever one of these days materializes, I also try to come up with something good to make. This weekend it was a dish that I had wanted to try, and I finally got the opportunity to test it out. Brunswick Stew originated in Brunswick, GA, fittingly enough. Some claim it originated in Virginia. Who knows. Once it's made, it is a cross between chili, BBQ, and some buffalo wing flavors. The main ingredient for this experiment: A whole smoked chicken, chopped up, even a little bit of the crispy skin that's rendered down. So if you're in the mood for something different from your regular 'ol chili recipe this Fall, you might want to give something like this a try. I think this will be my soup tailgate contribution this year.
I started with this as my base recipe. I figured if anyone knows Georgia cookin' it's this lady. Then I added a few things to make it mine, I guess (can't divulge any secrets, though). I was quite happy with the results, and the leftovers are back on the stove simmering away as we speak.
Time to watch the Chiefs drop a deuce against an inferior opponent at Arrowhead. You can sense my optimism.
