Man Food

Last night my daughter went out to the movies with friends which left me at home with my husband and son. This can only mean ONE thing for dinner.....MAN FOOD. In case you are unfamiliar with what exactly IS Man Food, let me start first by telling you what Man Food isn't. Man food isn't a type of food only consumed by men. It isn't a food prepared solely by men. Man food isn't something that is to be served at a bridal shower or afternoon tea and it isn't something you would think to offer to someone heading out for their first date. Man Food is simply food that smells both going in AND coming out. You know....the lingering smell that stays long after the food has been consumed. Prime examples of Man Food: Liver and Onions, Frank and Beans, White Castle Hamburgers with extra onions, chili with extra beans AND extra onions. If you have ever watched the campfire scene in the movie "Blazing Saddles" you will know exactly the criteria I am talking about in discussing the lingering effects of Man Food. Yes. You KNOW what I am talking about. So last night I had to run to the grocery store to prepare the required MAN FOOD dinner. What was on the menu? Smoked sausage and Sauerkraut! Need I say more? We followed MAN FOOD night by watching the movie 2012. Such a perfect addition to the Man Food menu. For all of you that are in fear that the kitchen is STILL infused with that distinctive sauerkraut flair, never fear! Tonight I made a good old fashioned delicious Sunday Dinner. We had a big Roasted Chicken, Fresh Steamed Rice, Broccoli and a Loaf of Fresh Baked Old Fashioned Country White Bread. Nothing says the END of MAN FOOD night like the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven! And yes, both men and women alike enjoyed the feast :)
