Unlike other celebrations that involve food, game day doesn't place many restrictions on the types of food to be served. Of course there are some old standbys like chili, chicken wings, 7 layer dip, etc, but there aren't really any expectations that those items be on the menu, at least not in my family. Since none of my guests seemed to particularly side with one team or the other this year, I decided to make dishes that favored the underdog. And in my un-football-educated opinion, the New Orleans Saints seemed to be that team. Thus, our menu consisted of Creamy Crab Dip, Jambalaya, and Black-Bottom Cupcakes, among other items.
I am a working woman with a passion for all things food related; I love to grow it, cook it, and most importantly eat it! While I have been known to fix my share of extravagant meals, these days I am budget minded. With a well stocked pantry, a home garden, and some ingenuity scrumptious fare is right around the corner!
