PPPC-II. It's baaaack...

And I've given Pacanis' Personal Pigskin Challenge its own thread (so I can find some of the stuff I made easier ).

A couple of years ago some of you may remember me challenging myself every time my football team, the (ahem) Cleveland Browns, played it's opponent. On that day I would make something to eat that their opponent's city or area was known for. For instance, when Cleveland played San Francisco I made Cioppino; Tennessee, Memphis style BBQ. Well after a year off I have decided to do it again!

Challenging myself this way every week introduced me to new foods and styles of cooking. And I feel the need to spice up my cooking once a week again, even though some will most likely be repeat performances. And I don't mean Cincinnati's goetta

So if you want to join in, feel free. Make something from my team's opponent or your own football's team opponent, or just know that I'll be posting something here every Sunday and once on Thursday

First up, the Miami Dolphins. Hmmm, pressed Cubans would be so easy...

This is a list of some of Miami's top food items.

Ten of our 100 favorite foods in Miami - Page 1 - Dining - Miami - Miami New Times

The Cuban burger and the stone crabs sound pretty good to me!

Thanks, Vit. I'm looking forward to the challenge. I already found some great recipes for a main and side dish. I just need to narrow it down by the weekend.

Bea, I was thinking about having stone crab claws as an appetizer when I saw them. I could order them at my online source, have them throw in some blue crabs and be all set for Baltimore, too. Of course, with the new sea food dept at Giant Eagle I may be able to find what I need locally now.

I like that idea I don't really follow football, but DH does. We grew up in Michigan, so it's the Lions. I understand it's a tough team to support, since they lose a lot. But munching on their opponents' food might make that bearable. Maybe. I'll check with DH

So, checking their schedule, first up is the Minnesota Vikings! I will not be looking for lutefisk, sorry. I think I'll check the Ethnic section for Scandinavian recipes from CWS and taxlady

It will be interesting to see what any of you come up with for when your team plays the Patriots. You will have a rather large selection to choose from. From beans to seafood.

Got the Eagles on Monday night. I reckon homemade Philly (by way of NC) cheese-steak sammiches will be in order.

Perfect time for Gravlaks | New Scandinavian Cooking. Or use Julia Child's recipe. I have never made it in that large a quantity. I just cut the recipe down proportionately.

Feel free when the time comes to give me any foods Detroit is known for because I saw them on Cleveland's schedule
Maybe I won't make anything that week, in recognition of them declaring bankruptcy
And I was thinking poutine for Minn.

I wish Philly was on my schedule, Hoot.

I just came back from a preliminary scan of the local Giant Eagle. I picked up some things and was happy to hear they would order something in for me
