Tailgating Sundays!

During the NFL season I "tailgate"* on Sundays, or before each Browns game if they play on another day. This year all our games are 1PM on Sunday.

This week I am doing brats. I chose them because I knew we might get rain (it did) and as such I could either grill them or do them inside. So I have me brats braising in beer with some yellow onion.


Anyone else "tailgating"?







*I tailgate at the house, not in a parking lot.

We're sofa-gating for the 4:15 game - Pats/Jets.

It'll be a TJ's mushroom flatbread and the alcoholic beverage of choice.

P.S. Frank, ditch the ketchup and go for mayonnaise (Hellman's) on your hot dog.

Didn't we have this ketchup-on/off-a-dog discussion before? Clearly you men are very confused about the subject - Dijon and sauerkraut (and maybe some melted Swiss) are the ONLY condiments that should accompany said hot dog.


Okay, on with the tailgating festivities...you know I have never been to one even though I am a huge football fan? Are they an American thing?

So it seems. I guess it gets too cold in Canada to spend time outdoors cooking and eating.

BTW, Dijon is wasted on a hot dog. You need to go with spicy brown or yellow mustards. No point in going all gourmet over a hot dog.

First of all, my part of Canada is not cold....it is wet.

Second of all, who puts mayo, nectar of the Gods, on a hot dog? It is to be cherished and saved for, well, just about everything else.

(It's okay, everyone Andy and I really DO get along )
