The TravelingWrite team’s getting antsy. We want to take a few weeks and go away and relax, eat and see new sites. Sure, we were in Miami/Fort Lauderdale last weekend, but that was just a quick in and out trip for the football game. It was a whole lot of fun, but we dined mostly on hot dogs and light beer!
We’ve decided to try something. Since we have prior commitments keeping us local right now, we’ll simply spend the next week cooking and dining on food that reminds us of some of our favorite places.
We’re kicking off today with Soul Food Football Sunday with a Little Latin Flavor. The plan is to prepare a bunch of yummy food, chill a case of beer, enjoy a Padron cigar between plates, and sit on the sofa and watch football. All day long! Its 9am, we only have about 4 hours to get this cooked and on the buffet table.
