Football is here again, and that means it's a great time to have friends over for beer and food. That's exactly what I did on Sunday, and I thought I'd share some of what we had.
In addition to a big batch of fried chicken, I made bacon-wrapped scallops. I'd write out a recipe, but there's really not much more to it than:
- Wrap scallops in bacon with a toothpick
- Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and brown sugar
- Broil (flip halfway through)
I also put out some of this amazing crab dip from Costco as well as a good (but not spectacular) artichoke-klamata hummus and an obligatory shrimp cocktail.
Beers ran the gamut from Brooklyn IPA to Blue Moon to Heineken to Corona to Yuengling, depending on who brought what. It was a great day of food, football, and friends, and I look forward to week 2. Also the Seahawks won (yay!) though my fantasy team lost (boo!).
